Since the beginning of 2021, we have changed 90% of our vendors. We have a long way to go to get to where we want to be in regards to sustainability, but we’ve come a long way as well. Sometimes I get caught up in not doing enough. Not being where we want to be just yet. But I need to stop and celebrate all that we have changed. We started with changing our vendors, next on our list is making our packaging eco-friendly, finding more ways to offset our carbon footprint with our shipping, and then developing some kind of recycling/thrift program
One step at a time. Reminding myself that it’s going to take a while to get to where we want to be and still know we can celebrate how far we’ve come.
Please keep demanding more from us and your other favorite brands. We can all do better. And we’re listening.
Be the change you want to see.
Show the world that sometimes you need to face a situtation head on, and sometimes you need to walk away.
Either way, you are important. You are loved. And you are enough.
Our vision is one of radical inclusivity. A place where people in all bodies are celebrated, respected, and embraced just as they are. Where we are all safe to be our most authentic self. Learning, growing, and celebrating one another.
