You can check the website in the bio for the items that we have. Check back over the week and we will be adding more items to the site over the week.
Did you know fast fashion is one of the leading pollutants in the world? Yeah it’s cheap and why spend more when you don’t have to, right? But buying gently used from apps like #thredUP#depop and #poshmark is a way to not only make your dollar go further but also reduce the waste just piling up around our planet. You can read more in the article I wrote! https://mygreenlivingguide.com/responsible-shopping/

Do you think dirty? 🤔Over the weekend, I started using the Think Dirty app, which allows you to check how “clean” your bath, skincare, and beauty products are. It’s already revolutionized my bathroom counter! The app rates products on a 0-10 scale in terms of level of toxicity (the higher the number, the greater the toxicity). It dissects a product’s ingredient list for you so you can understand what makes one product more or less toxic than another. I’ve learned much since I started using @thinkdirty. Just because a brand is considered “natural”, not ALL of their products are equally clean. For example, some of @sheamoisture ‘s lotions that I’ve used in the past received a score of 8, while this 💯 shea butter clocks in at a 0! So did my favorite face oils from @drunkelephant , The Ordinary, and @biossance ! 🙌🏽The app has a wide variety of products in their database, but for any that are not registered (like my favorite new serum/foundation from @iliabeauty ), you can submit the product barcode and they will analyze it for you! For free! *
How do you vet new products? Do you use resources like @thinkdirty as part of your decision making process?

Yesterday was 🌍 Environment Day and I forgot to mention a unique initiative from my recent visit to GOA!
An exhibition on ‘upcycling’where new life was given to waste items like the ones above👆🏼. 🌈 Before I continue upcycling is not to be confused with recycling. Recycling is taking the product and using it again as is. With upcycling, you can actually make a prettier product. 🌈 Besides awareness on the topic of using waste, all proceeds from the exhibition went to @Divyasadan home for adults with different levels of ability, of Caritas Goa. 🌈I was happy to buy a ‘Barni’ a traditional Goan ceramic jar that I remember my grandmother using! The Jars are vintage and have cracks on them but instead of throwing them away, designs were made using cold ceramic to coverup the cracks and make them more aesthetically appealing 🌈The creator of the exhibition Patricia Pinto happens to be @afcmark mom and has been working in waste for easily a decade. She has used ceramic, porcelain, melamine, thermocol and fabric from Panjim’s Dry waste sorting centre to make these items. 🌈Lastly if you notice the jar stoppers, she told me there were a huge box of these at the centre. They cannot be recycled and are dumped for years. So she used them to cover the jars! So there you have creativity and art coming to the rescue! I hear more exhibitions will be coming up and for more information check out @thelinenshoppegoa where the event was held.What do you guys think? Would you’ll buy such upcycled items?
Thanks for the push to get myself dressed @thesilentmeow - luckily I still feel like I’m in my pajamas 🤣. Feeling all the feelings today. Hoping that dressing like a rainbow today brings me out of my funk. 🌈

More than half of my closet is made up of secondhand clothes and shoes. Here, my hat, tee shirt, sweater, skirt, coat, and boots all belonged to someone else before finding their way to me. I love curating my personal style, and I love our earth. This is one way to avoid fast fashion and throw-away culture. #slowfashionoctober

Soooo I got rid of over three bags of clothes and donated them and needed to get a few pairs of jeans since I got rid of all of the ones I had. (Replacements only remember ;) I found these at a thrift store. They are vintage. And when I saw them I had literal heart eyes. I tried them on expecting them not to fit, typically jeans with this shape don’t fit over my hips but they fit like a dream and I literally squealed in the fitting room! The beading on these are pristine and so cool! I’m in love! Oh and they were $3 :-)
