Weekly Rundown

the Weekly Rundown: Sustainable Wholesale Options + How to Feel Like a Boss

December 3, 2017

Seasons and salt blog

LIFE:

How to Feel Like a Boss (When You Really, Really Don’t) – Need a pick me up? Or a swift, yet meaningful, perspective shift? This list is an excellent place to start.

You can catch a brief interview with yours truly, over at Ode to Sunday’s blog. I’m sharing a bit about what Sundays look like around our house. Ode to Sunday is an independent clothing line in Europe, with a strong emphasis on conscious production.

STYLE:

Paige, of Style This Life, brings up the discussion of ‘mindfully’ purchasing fast fashion.

Fresh off her trip abroad, LO dials in ethical French girl style over on her blog Capsule Closet, and I’m pretty sure she nailed it.

SHOPPING:

A heads up for Everlane fans: the company is offering FREE, 2-Day shipping on cashmere orders placed, Monday, December 4th. Their shipping has gotten notoriously slow, that makes Monday a great time to put in your order if you need it soon.

Have you heard about Nisolo’s holiday bundle yet? They’re teaming up with Hackwith Design House (one of my favorites!!) and three other businesses to sell a bundle of gift cards to five ethically-minded small businesses. It’s $35 for $250 worth of gift cards. There is a men’s and women’s option. But the best part is that $10 from every bundle purchase goes toward helping build a school in Kenya.

SUSTAINABILITY + BUSINESS:

The company Purnaa is aiming to be sustainable suppliers to the wholesale screen printing market. Businesses looking to screen print on t-shirts, hoodies, baseball caps, beanies, totes or drawstring bags now have a choice that can reflect their commitment to ethical and sustainable production. Purnaa offers a wholesale option for these types of items, that are produced in Fair Trade factories with organic, sustainable materials.

    Ok, so I am not the only one experiencing slow Everlane shipping! I noticed the last couple things they sent me not only spent several days in one place, which is unusual, but bounced around to three different locations within the greater LA area (I live just north of LA). I think if I usually purchase economy shipping, this is like…sub-economy shipping. I didn’t know such slow shipping was possible haha

      Yes, Everlane shipping has been horrifically slow lately, even for the two-day shipping. It took like five days to get a two-day shipment!

      That is a little crazy! Agreed, it’s crazy how slow it can be!! Also, this time of year everything seems to slow down in terms of shipping. :(

    Thanks for the shout-out! That Nisolo bundle is an absurdly cool deal!

    I had a chance to tour Purnaa’s factory while in Nepal earlier this fall, so it was cool to see them mentioned here. Such a great company! Love your blog, btw!

    I’m intrigued by that three-part wooden bottle you mentioned in the Ode to Sunday interview. Is it constructed like a jigsaw puzzle? Maybe you can sneak it into a photo sometime so I can catch a glimpse?
