Be kind and have a great holiday season

Yesterday the French capital, Paris, announced that they have had a spike in air pollution higher than any in the last 10 winters. This has led them to regulate traffic by banning half the number of cars on the roads. India’s capital city, Delhi, has a similar story to tell.

You can see the air quality index of the city you live in here. This just goes to say that pollution is on the rise and it will at some point have an effect on your health.

We have to be kinder towards our planet and take small teeny tiny steps towards a healthy and green environment. It is after all the only planet with chocolate, wine, beer, trees, dogs, cats, and a lot of other wonderful things. Try and bike/walk to work more often. Use public transport. Refrain from using plastic. Use reusable cloth bags to shop.

We can make it a movement. This doesn’t have to be boring. You can have awesome printed fabrics, convenience, durability, all wrapped up in one.

By using one reusable bag, you will not be using about 3 plastic bags, which is over  156 weekly bags in the year.

Have a beautiful weekend.

Trellis print bag and pouch

This productive week I worked on super exciting fabrics.

After watching the Leonardo DiCaprio movie, ‘Before the flood‘, (which is available on youtube to watch by national geographic for free for a limited time), I am so terrified for what climate change has in store for us. But it also brings hope that small things can make a lot of difference and revert the changes in the environment. It is so easy and tempting to go for convenience like plastic bags, to-go containers, go the extra mile and refrain from using plastic bags. Try to reduce meat consumption in your diet, it will be the wiser choice for your health and the environment.

On a lighter note, make you grocery shopping super fun with this Trellis print bag and a small convenient pouch that it comes with.
