National Op Shop Week is upon us…hence my terrible delay in posting…I’ve been so flat out that now I have the (fashion) flu. But as a soldier of style we press on. So National Op Shop Week is kinda like the Oscars for us eco kids, it’s a chance to showcase why thrift shopping is such a wonderful thing to do for people and the planet, support the mission of charities like the Salvation Army and best of all blow your mind with how pretty preloved can be. To celebrate, Salvos Stores and I have…

The hurried up hare may have thought he was a sure thing to win the race, but turns out the slow and steady tortoise was the guy with the real tale to tell.

The Greenest Tee on the Planet

April 27th, 2017

It’s a big claim but let me tell you this humble item absolutely lives up to the title! Not only is it the greenest but for reals it actually biodegrades back into the earth, so its completely zero waste too.

We both have a television background…
