I keep having all these ideas for posts and then letting them sit in my queue for too long without finishing the drafts, so I’m trying to find ways to blog more frequently but in smaller doses. When I first started blogging, it was more common to write a post of maybe 100 words with an image or two, so it was easy to blog every day.
Don’t worry, I’m still working on my bigger posts (currently in the middle of a massive One Week in Bali one), but I thought I’d also share these smaller posts in between. My bigger posts usually involve a bit of a marketing plan after I hit publish and take a lot of research, but these smaller ones are just tidbits and things I find interesting.
Right now I’m playing around with doing a Find of the Week, especially because I keep bookmarking different things, and this is my way of shopping without blowing through my money :p. I’m aiming to make these finds as sustainable as possible, but I also still have a mad love for Target, so I’ll include a bit about the companies I look at too to help you decide if you want to support or not.
The Mini Cat Tee
First up is this super cute People Tree T-shirt! If you know anything about me, you know I’m obsessed with cats. I love a good, looser T-shirt for travel days or more casual weekend trips, either tucked into a pair of shorts or (if long enough) over leggings. I also like that this shirt doesn’t seem too sheer like pretty much EVERY white shirt is these days!
People Tree is one of my favorite clothing companies and not just because they’re so conscious (I mean their tagline is “sustainable and fair trade fashion”). A lot of sustainable clothing companies are three times as expensive and have a very boho/relaxed style. Which is great, but I can’t really teach in a casual jumpsuit and a lot of the flowy, boxier cut clothes look horrible on me.
Anyhow, People Tree is based in the UK and pretty much does everything in its power to be as environmentally and socially responsible as possible. It’s accredited under the World Fair Trade Organization, and it mainly uses Global Organic Textile Standard certified organic cotton. The only issue Good on You (an app that gives you a quick rundown of your favorite brands) found with People Tree is that it uses non-mulesed wool in some products.
