I know that the holidays are right around the corner, and you may have already chosen and purchased gifts for your friends and family, but just in case you are anything like me and haven't I wanted to share with you some of my favorite sustainable gifts that I am loving right now.
The holiday season is officially upon us, which means that thoughts of gift giving, and holiday wish lists are in full swing as well. Since we have already talked about ways to avoid the traditional Black Friday madness and bring more intention and purpose into our shopping this year, I thought it was also time I shared with you some of my favorite sustainable retailers to get you started.
I'm not going to lie, I have never been into the whole black Friday. Maybe it's the fact that malls make me kind of claustrophobic (I don't like feeling lost indoors), or maybe it's because I just never was one of those people who NEEDED to buy this one specific thing or all would be lost. Regardless, I never have understood black Friday or have felt compelled to participate in black Friday, but that doesn't mean that you reading this post haven't in the past, or plan to participate in it again this week.
I know you have been thinking it. You feel overwhelmed by your crowded wardrobe filled with clothes that make you question your state of mind upon purchasing. Your home is filled with things and stuff and no matter how hard you try you feel like the clutter that overwhelms you will never really go away. You have junk drawers, and catch all baskets that are overwhelming with...well your not exactly sure what they are overflowing with, and after reading Marie Kondo's book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up you question every single thing you own, and think about renting a dumpster to just start over.
In part two of my Guide to Sustainable Living I wanted to share with you some of my favorite resources to help you begin your journey towards sustainable living. Throughout my own journey I have been inspired by so many people, teachers, books, experiences, etc. and while I hope that The Well Essentials is a great resource for you to turn to throughout this process, it absolutely is not the only resource.
