Products that Keep our Earth in Mind

What difference will you make this year for our environment?

Earth Day is celebrated on April 23rd, but we don't have to celebrate our Earth just one day a year. We have the opportunity to make a difference with the products that we love and purchase every day so in honor or this special day we thought we would share with you a few of our favorite products that have been carefully produced with the Earth in mind.

I fell in love with these bags while traveling in San Miguel de Allende. They are all made from reused pop top bags, inner tubes, used tires, discarded plastic from billboards, candy wrappers and soda cans. Arturo the designer is also one of the producers and he encourages children from local schools in Mexico to help him in learning about cleaning up the environment and recycling and then he gives money to the schools they attend for the pop tops that they collect.

With all the craze over the straw laws and plastic bags, we love these reusable stainless or Bamboo straws that you can carry with you and also soaps, shampoos and deoderants that their packaging does not get recycled. Did you know that 90% of these products don't get recycled, and that those plastic bottles take 450-1000 YEARS to biodegrade. That is insane...SO, in your household alone you can make a huge impact by choosing products that don't have plastic containers that are just put in the trash.  If you are around Cabo and looking for a good option- we love the products from Azul Consciente.


Why not throw in a mention for clothing and how it impacts our environment.  We love the work that Alejandra Raw does with products in using all natural materials and dyes. Not only supporting a slow fashion movement, but taking into account the environment around us by using natural dyes from plants to avoid using harmful ingredients and they use upcycled materials to deter waste.  


And last but not least- these sandals made in Oaxaca and the soles are made from up-cycled tires.  What a great way to keep putting them to work instead of ending up in a landfill.

We hope you love these environmentally friendly products as much as we do.  Come see us in the shop or contact us directly for more tips on sustainable products that you can introduce into your life to impact our EARTH for generations to come.
