'When the Last Tree Is Cut Down, the Last Fish Eaten, and the Last Stream Poisoned, You Will Realize That You Cannot Eat Money.' As we write this, 15,600,000 acres, 1665+ homes, 27 people (including three firefighters), and 500,000,000 wildlife animals (excluding insects, frogs + farmed animals, the latter being at a current count of 100,000) have been lost. We can all do something to help + we must come together at this time as a nation, to support those in need.
Welcoming in a new year often brings with it plans for lofty resolutions. However, instead of feeling like a failure in week one of January with broken promises to self - we think it's best to be gentle on yourself + make an easy (and do-able) list of farewells / hellos for the year ahead. The Sans Beast team have put together a shortlist of things we're leaving behind in 2019 + things we're going to manifest. Read on for a dose of inspiration for making 2020 a year of illuminated action.
From day 1 of Sans Beast, we wanted to ensure we were walking our talk by committing to animal welfare in a tangible way. We donate the gross profits from the sales of bag charms to animal rescue sanctuary, Edgars Mission. The sanctuary is open to visitors + is a delightful day trip for anyone visiting or living in Melbourne. You will learn from the caring + knowledgeable volunteers + staff at Edgars Mission + be inspired by the non human residents of this peaceful property.
