"How about seeing Christmas for what it really is: one gigantic money-making mechanism, the most wasteful event of the year, totally unsustainable, and a major source of stress?

A brain-washing manipulation by commerce, making us believe that by emptying our pockets we’re buying ourselves some “quality time under the tree”? How about letting go of that idea that we have to do something, just because everybody else is doing it?

How about challenging some “Christmas traditions” and choosing for ourselves how we want to spend Christmas?" Read the full article on @elephantjournal. Find the ⬆⬆link in my bio.⬆⬆ #ecoconscious #ecolife #thinkgreen #livegreen #begreen #ecosystem #repectnature #savenature

Need another gift idea? Beautiful vegan candles are always a great option. Currently, and only, burning @naturaamantis candles.
My favorite scent is Enchanted Forest and I have already gifted it 4 times....yep, loyal fan.

When we see the hungry and wish someone would do something to help them, we must remember We are “someone” and We can, at a minimum, waste less food. Then we can consider, when we do shop, supporting programs and businesses who donate to those in need of food, shelter, work, etc.

This Sunday I was focusing a lot on my favorite eye care products. People are kind to give compliments on the lack of wrinkles in my eye area, I figured it’s a great time to share my secrets. This is a perfect Sunday to do a face mask and focus on some really good eye care.
I use four eye care products like crazy! Only three are pictured because I talk so much about the fourth. So, I will give it an honorable mention... #OneLoveOrganics Vitamin E Eye balm is out of this world. I use this one specifically at night. See my previous Self Care Sunday post for details.
📌Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate: I use this puppy during the day. It has a very light formula that absorbs nicely.
📌Shamanuti Chamomile Cucumber Eye Gel: This one is great for day or night, especially if you put it in the fridge.
📌 Kahina Giving Beauty Prickly Pear Serum: This oil is very light and used in the morning. Love that it has no scent and allows my concealer to go on nice & easy.
There you have it! They are all natural, organic and vegan eye care products that give results. I love them all for very different reasons. What’s in your eye care must have? 👀 #selfcaresunday #selfcaretips #nowrinkles

Literally-Treading lightly in my second hand suede #coach boots from @encorerecycle Ponsonby...The business has been going strong for over 30 years! Buying preloved + off season stock is oh so economical! Do try it 🙌🏾

Did you know the NONA Signature Baby Bag has two insulated pockets perfect for stashing bottles, sippies, snacks or small emergency bottles of wine😘 Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend! xx
Last week was @makesmthng week, a collaboration between @fash_rev and @greenpeace in an effort to prove that we can challenge our highly consumerist society by using our hands to make and create with resources that we already have and own through reusing and upcycling. We had the pleasure of attending Jane Milburn's @textilebeat launch last week for her new book, 'Slow Clothing' at the @thehappenstore in Annandale. A makers table was set up out the back for guests to encourage us to use our hands and get creative. We used recycled silk fabric from @reversegarbageqld to make these Dolly Christmas ornaments (make sure to swipe to the last pic to see the end result). Naturally our founder, Nat @nattystylist made a couture doll with a head piece and all, with the help of Rachael and Jane herself.
Not only does making things encourage you to get creative and use your imagination, but it also helps you to be grateful for the resources you already own instead of buying new.
Christmas can be a time of year where we resort to over consumption and convenience. Let's try to get creative this year and use what we already own, buy second hand or make something with your hands - these gifts are the most meaningful and are ones people will hang on to and keep forever. 🙏🏾💚♻️

In honor of #humanrightsday, I’m just going to leave you with a quote for this #slowsunday. “To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.” -Nelson Mandela

Still looking for a last minute holiday gift?
I sewed up a bunch of produce bags during the weekend, so go check them out. There is still time for them to be delivered before Christmas - certainly if you are in Australia, and if you are quick timely overseas delivery is also a possibility.
Direct link to mindfulmakingAU on Etsy in the profile.

Seeking out allergy friendly food on the road has always been an adventure in itself. Finding eateries that are environmentally responsible can be equally challenging but it’s where I prefer to spend my money. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every year 8 million tons of plastic ends up in the ocean. It is estimated that in 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. It isn’t enough that plastic be merely recyclable. Compostable alternatives that biodegrade in months should be standard though refusing single use plastic is ideal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Until then, signs like this will continue to make me do a little happy dance. Ireland’s compostable cutlery game was strong. This cafe in Prague wants to let us know the calibre for how their business is run differently than competitors and I dig it. .
