one of the positives of the internet is the ability to make and maintain friendships across the miles. this journey of ours toward simple, fair, and zero-waste has been helped along by so many generous souls around the interwebs. i am grateful to each and every one of them.
i believe that varied perspectives + experiences can be the fuel of individual motivation and the sparks that lead to action. the hope behind fairdare is to bring individuals with the same motivation together in order to charge individual action and also to bring about collective power.
i knew i wanted to feature other real people on their own unique journeys. as a shy person, it took courage to muster up the nerve to ask women whom i admire to contribute. i was elated (just ask my tribe) when these same women agreed! :)
julie inspires me with her commitment to buy nothing new. her story of dressing for a formal event is not to be missed!
andrea decided to ban plastic from her closet as well as from her kitchen. her unique approach to less works just right for her and inspires me to observe and learn from my personal preferences.
celia's mindful wardrobe inspires me to take it slow and honor each piece in my own wardrobe... the pieces i have already and the ones i think about mindfully acquiring... or making.
empowered humans empower humans.
let's empower eachother!
