the aspirations of apparel.

here are 6 great ways to conserve money and contribute to sustainable merchandise.

TOMS. For every pair you purchase, Toms gives a pair to a child in need. 
These pair yielded two shoes to two children.

Save your jars and make awesome canisters to hold nuts, grains, beans, sugar, flour- anything.

Tins shouldn't go to waste either. Find a use for them. Pen holder, cotton ball/q-tips holder, keys, change. It adds some character. Very vintage.

Tired of paying $3 for herbs and wasting half before you can use them. I was. For 2-3 dollars an herb, you can create a small herb garden inside or outside. It was actually very easy. My basil died 3 times before I mastered it (a local  gardener gave me some tips), but I was persistent. I love basil. Other than that- Simple.

Tarte cosmetics are paraben, phthalates and sulfate free. Made from all natural ingredients with recycled packaging. I have had this cheek stain for a year and a half with plenty life left. Very long lasting.  The skin in your face is the most delicate, treat it well. 

This was a special gift from the lovely Brittany. She crafted this journal from scratch, even made the paper. What a special gift.

  1. Hello!

    I noticed your post on IFB so I thought I would check out your blog. I am really loving the recycle vibe you have on your blog - I think it is something we can all do, without trying really hard.

    Thanks for sharing these tips
