When is a t-shirt more than just a t-shirt? When it sparks a conversation that leads to lasting change. We use fashion as a template for progress, because fashion is ALWAYS political. From the clothes you wear to the ones you don’t, fashion can speak so much louder than hashtags.
We rally, we fight, WE WIN! Today the SD city council voted 6-3 to pass a ban on EPS foam (styrofoam) takeout containers & require that straws and plastic utensils be provided upon request only. This ordinance includes all restaurant and retail operations in the city of San Diego. ⠀ ⠀ This is a huge win for our ocean, waves and beaches. Our #riseaboveplastics volunteer policy team worked tirelessly with city officials, staff and a diverse coalition of organizations to make this ordinance a reality. ⠀ ⠀ Thank you to everyone who played a role in today's victory. To find out more about this ordinance and why we advocated for it, please click our link.in.bio. ⠀ ⠀ #sufridersandiego #surfridersd #breakfreefromplastic #plasticpollution #volunteer #civicsissexy #surfrider #businessforgood #fightthefoam #banthestraw #cleanwaterhealthybeaches #protectwhatyoulove #strawssuck #zerowaste #gogreen
‘Social Storm’ So now I’m home safe from Hurricane Florence 🌪I’m reminded about the societal storm brewing 😟 on my doorstep here in the UK 🇬🇧 The good news is that social issues aren’t too grim to fix. With kind, clever, creative solutions we can tackle inequality.

BE KIND TO YOURSELF 🌸// 10 Qs you can ask every few months to help you plan out your goals/intentions for a balanced, whole, regenerative life.🌿✨ . 1.What will I do to daily/weekly to strengthen my social network and relationships? . 2.What will I do to nourish and strengthen my body? . 3.What will I do to practice mindfulness and gratitude? . 4.What will I do to help my mind and body rest and heal fully? . 5.What professional milestones do I want to reach in 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months? . 6.When stressful situations arise, what will I do or tell myself to stay resilient and/or regain motivation? . 7.What will I do to grow as an individual and deepen my knowledge/awareness of myself and the world? . 8.What will I do to be a force of good in my community? . 9.What will I do to support a healthier planet? . 10.What will I do to acknowledge myself and my hard work, and celebrate all that I’ve done / learned? . When planning out your goals, make sure they are S.M.A.R.T.–specific, measurable, actionable, relevant (to your values), and timed. For example, not “I want to work out more,” but something like: “By the end of the next 3 months, I want to run 30 minutes 4 times per week.” Not “I want to reduce single-use plastics,” but “By the end of 3 months, I want to be bringing my own water bottle every time I leave my front door.”💙 . Make them reasonably challenging, but doable. Then break them down into your monthly/weekly action steps to build up to that incrementally, lay them out as “to-do’s” in your weekly planners, and start crossing them off as you move forward!🙌🏽 . Just remember that it’ll be tough to do everything exactly as we plan or take on too many things at once, so always view it as a learning journey, prioritize, and be gracious with and kind to yourself.🦋 . P.S., Stoked to share that within 1 month, we supported the planting of 50,000 trees through Eden Reforestation Projects from our 2019 Planners. We have limited copies left (Lemon + Ocean will be gone soon) and they won’t be re-stocked. GreenDreamer.com/Planners for more info if they may be supportive of your 2019, and thank you for joining in and for being #greendreamer
It is amazing how these small nuts I am holding has the power to not just make a significant difference in enriching the people's skin but also enriching the lives of women. This is Shea Nut, the small but mighty nut that is extracted to give us Shea Butter- One of the world's most moisturizing butter. From handpicking the nuts from the wild, to sorting to milling to extracting the butter, the process of getting the butter from the nut is a laborious effort mostly done by clusters of women in rural villages who depend on this to make a living . Last year, we managed to order over 5,000kg of Shea Butter directly from the rural women group we work with in Tede, Oyo State. This Shea Butter is a major ingredient in our skinfood products and enables women like these earn better income from the work they do. As a social entrepreneur who started out by running a non-profit charity organization, I've discovered that what resource-poor women need is not aid or charity handouts! GIVING WORK AND ENGAGING THEM IN PRODUCTIVE & SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOOD IS SO MUCH MORE POWERFUL AND EMPOWERING TO ELEVATE THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE.- - - - This is one of the reasons why I started Omaness Skinfood about 21months ago, to use the ingredients we have locally to create tangible bodycare products, that creates opportunities, gives work and fuels income for women. Earning better income helps this women keep their children in school, put better food on the table, reduces maternal mortality (because of a rural poor woman can afford to eat right and go to the clinic to deliver her baby, she will) reduces child malnutrition and increases these women's chances to boost their local economies EVERY THING WE NEED TO LIFT OUR WOMEN OUT OF POVERTY IS ALREADY WITHIN US! And Every Purchase You Make From @omanessworld gives us the power to enrich the lives of hundreds and thousands of more women! Why Not Start Now? Visit @omanessworld to order products that'd enrich your skin and don't hesitate to tell a friend about us! . . . . . #sheabutter #empoweringwomen #enrichinglives #businessofskinfood #skinfoodmogul #businessforgood
Today I’m very encouraged by the sharing of takeaway from the youth & the mentor volunteers. 😃 Patience, Focus & gaining awareness to recognize their own emotions, not allowing the negative feelings to take control but instead was able to calm down & do the right thing. I also witnessed the power of support & the spirit of not giving up. Wow, I’m so encouraged! 😃 This ministry is not only giving me the opportunity to mentor the youth but really for me to grow as a person too. To stretch myself in my capacity, creativity & leadership. Love all the volunteers who stepped forward to serve together😍 Tmrw, we have another team doing another artwork. I’m so looking forward to it. I’m already enjoying a purpose driven 2019😃 . . . . . #classlivingsg #inclusivity #upcycling #fabric #environmental #sustainability #socialimpact #change #transforminglives #environmentallyfriendly #craft #crafting #specialtalent #sgart #sgartist #specialartist #socialenterprise #businessforgood #socialcause #igsg #sgig #sg #artlovers #selftaughtartist

A wonderful milestone for our supported start-up @AlchemyFoodtech as they launched their food-tech laboratory at NUS Enterprise@Singapore Science Park on 21 January! 🎊 The event was graced by Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Trade and Industry, Mr Chee Hong Tat. Guests were treated to a guided tour of the lab, as well as food samples containing Alchemy Foodtech's very own products 🌱 – 5ibrePlus and 5ibreGrain. Check out their journey and feature on Channel NewsAsia ➡️ link in bio! Co-founded by Alan Phua and Verleen Goh (an @nus.fst alumna) Alchemy Foodtech's proprietary ingredient blend adds fibre to food while serving to lower the glycaemic index (GI) of rice, bread and other carbohydrate foods without changing their taste and texture 🍚. It is an especially impactful innovation for people with diabetes, who often struggle to find healthier yet tasty options for their everyday food staples.

So you want to make an impact on the world huh? . It all starts with you. Like Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. When it comes to building a more sustainable society, there is a price of admission. It requires a pretty radical mindset shift. It’s really difficult to help other people when you’re wrapped up in your own drama of life. . So get right with yourself. Make peace with your past, maybe even your present. Get right with others. Have the tough conversations. Because once you clear enough of your own shit out of the way, you will automatically be drawn to thinking of how you can help move the world along. . . Then, give freely of your time to someone who might need it. Nursing homes, homeless shelters, a friend who is struggling, schools, etc. Have no doubt that once your mindset changes, the world around you will start to change. 🌿
💷 BUY LESS, CHOOSE WELL 🌿⠀ .⠀ Today’s @ethicalhour Changemaker prompt is ‘Buy less, choose well’. (Actually it’s not, but after days of posting topics together & leapfrogging over some, I’m now jumping ahead. I’m more of a rule breaker than I thought!) ⠀ .⠀ Anyway, this one is close to my heart. I grew up in a house with an income that swung between modest &....considerably less-than-modest. For years the idea of spending a lot of money on clothing, or products, or possessions in general provoked angst & worry in me. It just wasn’t done. ⠀ .⠀ Maybe it’s getting older, maybe it’s learning more about our throwaway culture (maybe I’m channeling my Grandmother who rarely threw anything away!) but something finally shifted a few years back.⠀ .⠀ I’ve started to research brands more, read reviews, ask for recommendations. And (where needed) spend more in order to purchase quality items that last. And though I still get a little flutter of fear when I hand over my card or check out, I feel better about my choices long term because I know they are designed & made to last. .⠀ It helps that I don’t care for brief trends (more than happy to let cropped high-waisted flares & fuggly trainers pass me by! 🤣). ⠀ .⠀ And if I know the items I’m buying have been created ethically then that goes a long way too. This photo is of Tri Balm by my client @francesprescottskin (I was a customer way before working with them). It’s not cheap (£48) but I know it’s been produced in the UK, using locally sourced natural ingredients (helping local businesses & suppliers), and it’s certified cruelty-free which is essential to me. Also, it’s 3 in 1, so I don’t have to buy 3 products and it last for months! And that, for me, is money well #MeetTheChangemakerChallenge⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #BuyLessChooseWell #BuyOnceBuyWell #SlowFashion #IndependentBusiness #SlowFashionMovement #SlowFashionStyle #SlowLivingRevolution #EthicallyMade #CrueltyFreeBeautyProducts #VeganBeauty #EthicalMarketing #EthicalMarketer #PurposeDriven #BusinessForGood #EthicallyStylish #EthicallySourced #EthicallyProduced #CircularEconomy #ReduceReuseRecycle ⠀
