How Dirty Is your Closet? Our wardrobe choices impact the planet more than we may think. Did you know the fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world? That’s why how we shop and treat our clothing matters. I’ve partnered with @thredUP, the largest online consignment store, to encourage each of us to discover the carbon impact of our wardrobe. I consider myself I super conscious shopper so I was shocked to learn that my closet still contributes to roughly 400lbs of carbon emissions every year! Head to the link in my bio to take thredUP’s 3 minute Fashion Footprint quiz to see how yours stacks up. You’ll also learn super easy changes you can make to seriously lighten your impact! Plus, when you get to the end of the quiz there are goodies like a mega discount of your first thredUP orders and other sustainable fashion companies! #thredUPinfluencer #fashionfootprint

#ad The start of a new year also signifies the transition from fall to winter. It’s funny how quickly people go from cranking their AC full blast, to turning up the heat. I personally choose to layer up. I am pictured here wearing my grandfather’s sweater. It’s as old as I am and reminds me of him. I strive to live with as low of an impact as possible, so I take pride in seeing how much energy I can conserve! . What steps do you take to stay energy efficient in wintertime? Here are some of mine: – Unplug to Recharge: Electronics and appliances continue to draw energy, even when they are turned off, so make sure you unplug them when not in use. – Check for Drafts: Check for sunlight between the frames of your doors and windows, and check your windows for drafts. Well insulated homes use less energy to heat them, which means you’ll be more comfy at home. – Find the Right Temperature: Programmable and smart thermostats are easy to control, so you won’t have to worry about whether or not you accidentally left the heater on all day or feel the need to leave the heater on to keep the perfect temperature while you’re away. .

✨If you’re on my email list, you’re probably already knee-deep in my Sustainable India Packing List! For those of you who aren’t, here’s a sneak peek that I’ll share with you!👀 . These GORGEOUS pants from @matterprints were my constant companion in India! They’re made in India (the brand is based out of Singapore), using traditional Indian craftsmanship and design. With hand-block printing techniques, a modern reconstruction of the All Eye motif (a protection charm of ancient times), this pant is incredibly unique, bold and monochrome, perfect for pairing with anything!👌🏽 . I loved how comfortable they were, how season and country-appropriate, and how easy to travel around in they were. They’re made from 100% medium weight cotton, selectively bundled and dyed by hand using azo-free dyes, and the threads are hand-loomed. The traceability is completely transparent and this brand just kills it when it comes to sustainable, ethical, and edgy yet traditional silhouettes and designs🔥 . I wore these wandering around an ancient step well in New Delhi, thinking of all the people that had passed through those gates and steps before me. The giant old steps were a bit of a feat to climb, so I loved how movement-friendly these pants were 🏃🏽‍♀️ . Have you heard of this brand? What’s your favourite travel pant to take with you on a trip?👇🏽 . #forageandsustain x @matterprints

Reusable plastic vs. reusable cotton vs. single-use paper vs. single-use plastic – which one of these grocery bags do you think is the most eco-friendly choice? ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Are we measuring water footprint? then plastic bags by a long shot⁠⠀ Are we measuring end-of-life? then cotton or paper⁠⠀ Are we measuring lifetime emissions? then the reusable plastic bag. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Sustainable living is so complex because they are so many different ways to measure impact. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ When it comes to reusable items, they're only more eco-friendly because they're used over a LONG period of time. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ A study done by the Environment Agency in the UK found how many times a bag needs to be used to compare to a single-use plastic bag. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ▪️paper bags: 3 times⁠⠀ ▪️the thicker "reusable" plastic bags: 4 times⁠⠀ ▪️reusable plastic bags: 11 times⁠⠀ ▪️cotton bags: 131 times⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If we start treating our reusables like disposables i.e. constantly buying more, upgrading, etc. we've completely defeated the purpose. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ So, one of the best things we can do is reuse what we have over and over again! ❤️⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Do you think you've used your bags enough times? ⁠⠀ #GoingZeroWaste⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #choosetoreuse #zerowaste #plasticfree #ecofriendly #plasticpollution #wastefree #sustainability #reducereuserecycle #eco #sustainable #reusable #noexcuseforsingleuse #reuse #singleuseplastic #reduce #reducewaste
