Today I want to bring another great eco-friendly brand to you, Stop The Water While Using Me! They’re from Hamburg and they sell organic cosmetics like shampoo and shower gel, but also toothpaste and even a toothbrush. All that without using silicones, paraffins and synthetic fragrances, preservatives or other resources that are mineral oil based (oh, and also without animal experiments). The goods are sold in refillable packaging. You can practically do nothing wrong from an eco-conscious point of view.
Hey there! Today’s post is one I’ve been really looking forward to publishing for some time now. I don’t know if you have heard about it yet, but a few month ago the two friends and health enthusiasts Allie Lehman and Mary Trenda have started a blog called Considering You. In my opinion it is one of the best and most informative blogs on whole foods, diet (in an ‘eat good stuff’ and not ‘lose weight’ way) and health topics in general out there. That’s why I am so happy that they agreed to answer a few of my questions and do this little interview. Enjoy reading it below.
petition // cruelty free international against animal testing
After many of you supported the first petition I shared with you a few weeks ago, I thought, why not post another one? This week I want to tell you about the campaign ‘Cruelty Free International’. It’s aim is to ban animal testing on cosmetic products all around the globe. The EU and some other countries like Israel, Croatia or Norway have already forbidden animal testing, but it is still legal in over 80 % of the world, including the USA and Asia. On top of that, animal tested products are available for sale in every single country, EU or not.
work day breakfast // toast with tomatoes and pesto
Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was way too short (even though it was a long weekend, oh well), but really nice of course. Today I want to share another great breakfast with you, so the work week doesn’t sound to grueling for you.
Happy weekend everybody! How are you doing? In my opinion every month could be like May, there are so many public holidays. This weekend is also four days long, yay! I will be working a lot, but nevertheless it is nice to switch up routine a little bit. What are you up to this weekend? If you need some ideas, look no further…
This week I am so happy to be featuring Leney from A Girl Named Leney for Everlasting Apparel! I discovered her blog only a few weeks ago, but it has quickly become one of my favourite blogs that I love to return to time and time again. Leney is a photographer and also sells knit-wear and other goodies in her Etsy store, so she practically leads the dream life of every creative. Here’s her favourite piece.
appreciate it // the first strawberries of the year
I’ve got exciting news: Starting this week Helena (remember her from this post?) is going to share a regular column! I’m so glad to be working together and excited for what’s to come! Isn’t working together with other creatives about the best thing about blogging? Here goes…
Exhibit number one that organic fashion doesn’t have to be scruffy or overpriced: Monkee Genes. It’s a jeans brand from Great Britain with the slogan No child labour. No slave labour. No blood. No sweat. No tears. Sounds quite good, right? According to their site it’s the first and only jeans label that has both acreditations from The Soil Association and the Global Organic Textile Standards (if you want to know what these eco-seals mean, you can go here). There is even a collection that is made and produced solely in England.
