Taking the step to become more conscious can seem a bit overwhelming - over the years I've been taking small steps towards a more ethical everyday that I would like to share with you.

Let's talk plastic - Annually approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. Plastic bags are used for an average of 12 minutes, yet it takes up to a 1,000 years for plastic to degrade. Scientists estimate that there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2020 unless we drastically change our plastic habits.

Start by using reusable bags and reducing plastic in your other consumer choices as well. Every bag counts!
