Sourcing materials is a major part of creating our vegan handbag collections at Sans Beast. With our core mission to use no animal products, we take a look at the range of biobased + manmade materials currently available for non leather handbags, and talk you through some of the issues in selecting the right materials. Cost, minimums, freight + commercial availability are all factors that come into play when we're compiling our wishlist for new collections.
We recently chatted to Sian Murray, co-founder of Pleasant State - the Sunshine Coast based startup, focused on revolutionising the cleaning products space, with earth friendly solutions. They're cruelty free, locally made + incredibly committed to their vision. Read on to learn about this dynamic duo + what they've got planned for getting your home clean, sans toxic chemicals.
What a year it's been + now we're on the fast train to Festivus, with many of us looking forward to overdue celebrations with loved ones. While it's tempting to feel 'we deserve' decadence - it's a good time to remember how much waste can come out of this time of the year, with packaging + decorating. We share our top tips, for enjoying a more eco conscious 2020 Xmas. Whether it's getting your craft on through embracing upcycling, foraging for sticks to repurpose into a Xmas tree or wrapping your presents with old fabric - we've pulled some ideas together to offer up a DIY-fabulous experience this festive season.
