We’re very happy to announce new ecofriendly merchandise is coming soon to the StayBlooming.com Shop!
Our ecofriendly items are inventive and highly useful. They serve a greater purpose for the earth by eliminating plastic use, future plastic pollution, and creating conscious thinkers out of ourselves. The movement for plastic-free living has been growing at a faster rate than ever before. People are finally taking notice of the severe environmental issues the world suffers from. We are realizing that the cost of consumerism & profits is actually a sacrifice to our entire natural world. One in which we cannot buy back or build; one in which is damaged inequitably, with no chance of fair replenishment.
We need to respect our earth and that means finding and/or creating successful alternatives. Doing the work now so that future generations aren’t faced with tougher decisions that we see today… decisions that we are currently setting them up for. Changing your behavior starts with one question and a few small steps. What side of history will you be on?
Climate change is real. Environmental issues affect us all. Whether we feel affected by it personally or not doesn’t change the affect it has on other people and parts of the world. The problems we have within the environment are so large-scale that no one person can do anything to fix it, no one organization, no one country, no one continent… it is an effort that’s needed by the entire world and every conscious being in it.
So with that being said… today I received a piece of mail basically recommending me to switch energy providers. To my fellow city dwellers… you know exactly what I’m talking about! I found this empty envelope inside:
I thought to write a note to send saying, “Stop wasting paper!” but I realized that would be wasting paper too. So I just lifted the flap and wrote it on there — so they’d be forced to pay the postage and receive my message.
I’m committing myself to do this each time I get junk mail that includes a “no postage necessary” envelope because it’s a waste of paper and the only way corporations learn is: (a) when you make them lose money or (b) when you make them spend unnecessarily. One person can’t make a dent but a lot of people can, and dents give in eventually, so protect what you believe in bloomers!
Over the last few months, it has become increasingly important to begin an environmental conversation. I always touch on this because the environment is a topic that a lot of people don’t realize is a priority. With politics finally shedding some light on how important it is, from local communities to internationally, I find myself wanting to educate people on the basics of why the environment deserves our attention.
We are witnessing environmental issues within our lives that’s a direct result of the industrial impact on earth.
We are further compromising the state of our environment by making long-term decisions for short-term profit.
How & what we’re doing to confront & deal with issues depends on the issue itself — meaning there will never one fits all kind of solution.
Our success in creating current sustainability may be able to promise future sustainability.
The most important thing to remember is that environmental problems are multi-faceted issues. There are so many different aspects to consider and majority of them are ever-changing in nature. So solutions & predictions are harder to determine since there are many moving parts.
To start an environmental conversation, we really need to begin to build our understanding of what the environment does for us. That foundational insight can help us realize the powerful relationship between earth and man. We need to learn more about our surroundings, how much it immediately gives to us, and how our behaviors today affect what it will give us in the future. From romantic relationships to friendships and family bonds, all relationships require a specialized attention to the beloved.
So why not the relationship we have with our only home? 💭
