Slowing Down Fashion With Liz Alig

I feel like I’m finally starting to get a handle on slow living. As much as it’s a buzz word, I really do believe in the importance of living in a healthy and manageable way, yet I’ve also often found it difficult to maintain a slower sustainable routine in my own life. I moved to…

Six Secrets To Help You Shop Sustainably

If you’ve been following me for a while you might remember I spoke about online sustainable fashion store Sheer Apparel a few months ago. Recently while reading the ever wonderful blog from the Saiint Sisters I saw that Paula, Sheer Apparel founder, had shared some of the lessons she’s learned along the way in the sustainable fashion world,…

Fog & Moon: Ethical Linen From New Zealand Nature

Today I’m stepping aside to let the lovely Tanya of Fog & Moon take the reigns. Fog & Moon are a new sustainable company based in New Zealand, creating beautiful fashion and homeware from linen. Tanya and I got chatting, and when I learned more about the steps she’s taking to revolutionise sustainability in New…

Why Hemp Is A Wonder Material

I’ve talked about hemp a little bit on the blog before, but only when it comes to its usefulness for natural beauty. But when it comes to finding sustainable, versatile clothing – especially if you need it for practical reasons like the workplace – it can feel nearly impossible to find options that aren’t polyester, acrylic or…

Is Ethical Fashion Elitist?

Today’s post is written by the wonderful Hannah Thiesen of Life Style Justice, an amazing blog covering responsible living, fair fashion and social justice. She’s also founder of the Ethical Influencer Network (of which I’m a proud member!) and Grow The Good Collaborative, a digital marketing agency that specifically helps ethical brands. Basically she’s an…

The Power Of Rest With Azura Bay [GIVEAWAY]

It’s a bit of a no brainer to say that sleep is important, after all there’s a reason we all love it so much. On average we spend about a third of our life asleep, and in this time our bodies and our minds heal and build. Sleep is good for our immune system and helps us fights…

DIY Zero Waste Cleaning Just Got A Whole Lot Easier

Did you know that home cleaning didn’t always look how it does now? Walk into any supermarket home cleaning aisle nowadays and you’ll see rows and rows of colourful, often un-recyclable plastic bottles filled with chemicals you can’t pronounce, some of which can often contain toxins or irritants. But less than 200 years ago life…

Live The Give: Funding Education, Founded By A Teacher

We all know how vital I think education is. Education empowers and equips, it helps us see why problems happen and innovate solutions, it helps us understand people that aren’t like us. It helps us foster compassion and stand up for what we believe in. Knowledge (combined with a lil wisdom and empathy) truly is power; the impact…

Thraedable Turns Stories Into Sustainable Solutions

You have a voice, and your voice is important. You have a story, and your story is important. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve said this phrase over the years. As a performer and educator (the things I do when I’m not writing here), I have not only said these words many times,…

Ideas For Eco-Friendly Parties

Did you know it was actually Ethical Unicorn’s birthday a couple weeks ago? That’s right, one whole year of writing about ethically made, zero waste and cruelty free (with a lil bit of social justice). While I’ve realised there’s still a lot to learn and a lot to do, one year still felt like cause for celebration,…

USA Leaves The Paris Agreement, What Now?

The decision for the US to exit the Paris agreement was one that many of us expected somewhat, but is still extremely disappointing. I know it’s frustrating, if you’re anything like me it makes you want to curl up in bed and stubbornly ignore the extreme foolishness. But if leaders won’t look out for us,…

Giving The Gift Of Self Care

I’ve been having a bit of a tough time recently. Whilst I won’t go into detail, I do think it’s important for those of us that have influence to be somewhat open about mental health, because looking after our minds should be treated with the same validity and importance as looking after our bodies. Ain’t nobody got…
