    Short post, but very relevant! If every person decided to live a reusable lifestyle, imagine how much we could save over the years! Mother Earth would surely be very proud. :) Because we’re more than just a sustainable clothing company selling clothes, we also share tips on our blog about living a greener and healthier life.

    19 BILLION single-use plastic bags are distributed every year in California alone. Over 40% of marine mammal species and bird species are recorded to be negatively impacted by plastics by entanglement or ingestion. Thank you for mentioning the canvas bag! The word needs to be spread! REFUSE, reuse, reduce, recycle! :)

    I’d love to talk to you about a potential collaboration on a Viral Bag Campaign called “Trash Your Friends, Not the Ocean” – email me if you’re interested in learning more!
