Let's face it: it's easy to get caught up in all the consumer-driven fuss of fall – stocking up on sweaters, drinking PSLs on the daily, buying every pumpkin-cinnamon-apple scented candle you get a whiff of – all of which challenge the concept of living more simply. Thankfully, there are ways to appreciate autumn intentionally – instead of falling back into old shopping habits.
It's amazing to think that with the simple click of a button, we can connect with people from all over the world who share similar values, and work together to reach a common goal. One company that's helping to bring us closer together is Minimal Exposure, a small batch clothing studio based in Cape Town, South Africa.
Fall has officially arrived! In addition to the changing foliage and pumpkin spice-flavored everything, this season also welcomes the return of one of my favorite sustainable textiles – wool. This cozy, natural fiber is a great eco-friendly option for keeping warm for several reasons.
Ever thought about what's in your bag? Let's face it: When it comes to personal care, disposables are everywhere. From toothbrushes and razors to makeup containers and shampoo bottles, a lot of the products we use on a daily basis are designed to be disposed of after a matter of days, weeks, or sometimes months.
