A sustainable spring - embrace ethical self-care with Kauchy’s conscious home goods
Wellness is about connecting with our bodies and learning to listen to what we need in order to be balanced and energized in our daily lives. When we start to slow down and live consciously, the world moves at a different pace. Practice meditation, support your locals, be kind to yourself and enjoy the simple things in life.
We have put together a special starter pack for every one of those moments of the week that call for self-care.
Cleaning Day - Making your interior spotless can be an exercise in meditation. Try to see it as a moment to clear your home and mind at the same time. And, because cleaning shouldn’t come at Earth’s expense, make sure you swap out your harsh cleaning liquids for sustainable non-toxic solutions. Your health will thank you and so will the planet.
Kinn’s cleaning solutions were created by a mother and daughter looking for alternatives to traditional cleaning products. They created a whole line of homecare that is naturally derived, safe, and non-toxic. Made from biodegradable ingredients that don't impact the environment negatively, or your health for that matter. Green cleaning will not only make cleaning easier, you will protect the environment and keep your home safe.
“We founded KINN because we think that if we’re looking after what we put on our skin, it also makes sense to look after what we use in our homes. Our ethos is Clean Beauty™ for you, your family and your home. Organic, natural and eco friendly can be on-trend too.”
— Marie & Sophie
A Night in - Unwinding should be all about being kind to your body and mind. Taking some time for yourself, mindfully, will re-energize you for the days ahead. The practice of mindfulness has been shown to reduce stress and it will give you a chance to truly connect with yourself and your feelings. Creating a grounded space is the first step: Create a comfortable space on your favorite armchair — that beautiful iconic furniture item that’s been with you for ages. Then, light a candle that will calm your senses. Mint Pantari creates vegan candles, free from toxic ingredients, enhanced by natural oil and fragrances that are bound to get you ready to seize the day.
Don’t forget to feed your mind too. Pick up a good book that will inspire you, creatively. Taschen’s collection of classic books will allow you to travel without the journey. Make sure to write down your thoughts and ideas in a personal notebook. Putting pen to paper will turn your dreams and ambitions into goals.
A Spa Day - nothing says self-care like a spa day. Human touch has healing properties, so indulge: massage yourself and pamper your body with clean skincare. Be aware of what you put onto your body and make sure it’s ethical, cruelty-free and nourishing. Our favorite beauty picks are made by Tangent GC. Sustainable skincare made from pure vegetable oils and free of preservatives, artificial colors and petrochemicals. Each eco-conscious beauty product is naturally perfumed with scents like cedar, citrus and oud. Indulge guilt-free.
Slow Mornings — The absolute best. Being able to take it slow in the morning is the ultimate little luxury. So make sure you take your time and make yourself that ultimate cup of coffee. Slow drip and pour-over specialty coffees are the realm of SlowMov: single-origin organic coffees cultivated in specific microclimates. The taste is unique and you will be supporting local coffee roasters and farmers from around the world, one sip at a time. Enjoy from a ceramic cup by Low Key Goods and get ready to seize the day.
It goes to show you should never compromise sustainability for your self-care. Engage with your daily habits more mindfully. Swap outdated products and practices in favour of more ethical and sustainable ones. Whichever way you decide to invest your time, remember: you hold the key.
