Honouring Mother Earth

With features that Celebrate Earth Day

Hello friend,

Tomorrow is Monday, April 22 and across the globe people will be recognizing Earth Day. This week we’ve chosen to feature women who we believe are doing exceptional and inspiring things that will help ground you and hopefully reconnect you a little to this beautiful planet.

In pulling together the newsletter, we were reminded to be kinder to the environment and to acknowledge and embrace the beauty of nature. We hope these stories have the same effect on you!

We’re starting with a sister act that has created a salad empire; an innovative Italian shoe line that has found a sustainable leather replacement in apple skins; a hugely popular yogi who shares some basic breathwork techniques; an eco-friendly product line that turns the tedious act of shaving into a beautiful ritual; and a Canadian Inuk musician whose renditions of famous pop hits are captivating and hypnotic. 

Two sisters and a salad empire! Read the incredible story of Mandy’s Salads and try one of my favourite recipes from their collection. - Tonia

Not only is this shoe beautiful, it is the perfect marriage of Italian craftsmanship and environmental sustainability. - Aynsley 

While searching for online yoga classes during the pandemic I came across Arianna Elizabeth, the owner of Bright & Salted Yoga Studio. Finding her was a sigh of relief. - Tonia

Say goodbye to your plastic razor and hello to this eco-conscious brand that will change the way you shave and help save the planet - Aynsley

If you do nothing else today, watch Elisapie’s beautiful video rendition of Dreams by Fleetwood Mac. It will linger in your head forever. - Aynsley

Inspiring acts of kindness to start your day on a positive note.
