Hawai'i Bans Reef-Toxic Sunscreen, and It's About Time!
Grab your baskets and reusable bags and support your local farmers! It is better for you, your community, and your planet!
Farmers markets seem to be the mascot of summertime. Walking down rows of bright stands bursting with rainbows of fresh seasonal vegetables and fruits, being inspired by eclectic handmade crafts, getting to know the smiles and the dirt-kissed hands behind the produce, chit-chatting with friends and fellow farmers market wanderers… this is how grocery shopping should be. It is social, it is active, it is colorful, and it is way better for our bodies and the environment.
Protecting our skin should not mean killing the environment. Humans do not have to be in conflict with the planet. The more we realize we need the environment, the more we will make choices that benefit the entire planet, and inadvertently, ourselves. Be kind to the ocean, it's critters, and the entire planet by avoiding any sunscreen that kills or bleaches coral, awakens coral viruses, and pollutes the water and the creatures in it. Avoid anything containing toxins such as: oxybenzone, butylparaben, octinoxate, or 4-methylbenzylidene camphor.
Don't Be Trashy: 5 Simple Ways To Protect The Ocean
Much like the innate understanding that laughter is good for the soul and meditation is good for the mind, it feels laughably obvious that being surrounded by trees and walking under living canopies is healing. But now, we have the science to prove what so many poets and people have always known to be true.
Yoga: One Size Fits All
Because the ocean covers over 70% of our planet, it truly connect us all. The terror inflicted on the ocean is not just a marine problem, it is a global problem and it affects each and every one of us. Every decision you make matters. Everything you do is either helping or hurting the environment. It takes all of us to change the world, but it takes just one person to cause a ripple effect. Align your lifestyle with your values and you will inevitably inspire others to do the same. There are so many ways you can make small changes in your life that will make big (and positive) changes for the world. And those small changes can be SO FUN!
Here is a list of our top favorite ways to be less trashy toward the ocean:
Yoga began as a way to transcend the physical and continually reach for Samadhi or enlightenment.
Yoga truly began as a one size fits all concept. The practice was not about the physical body as much as it was about the mind, and no amount of fabric can ever contain the capacity of the mind.
Why then, are so many yoga companies only creating clothing for a narrow & specific group of the world? Yogis come in all shapes and sizes, not just extra small, small, medium, and “large”.
The yoga world has been saturated by tiny limbs and perfect poses. But that is not yoga. Yoga embraces every curve and every skill level. Yoga is about the journey. Start where you are and never stop stretching and reaching for the next level.
It is heartbreaking to know that so many incredible women look at most yogis online and in the media and think that because they are not the mirror image of them, they aren’t yogis (or able to be yogis), too.
Our current fundraiser is about standing strong and tall in the shadow of the giant companies and corporations. Help us find the sunlight. Help us continue to create yoga apparel with the true meaning of yoga at its heart. Help us to grow so that we can offer the yoga community and the world beautiful eco and ethical options and include more and more sizes so that all yogis know that yoga is for them just as much as it is for those sporting the extra smalls. We currently offer sizes xs - xl in the clothing we manufacture. We would like to add an xxl to the next production run we are currently fundraising for.
Of all the clothing industries, yoga apparel should be the most understanding, the most inclusive, the most ethical, and the most flexible.
