#SustainableSunday with GlobalWAKEcup...

Sunday, February 10, 2019

When you're a citizen of the world and care about the world, it only makes sense to use only products that help make your own personal global footprint as small as it can be so that the world can continue to be a beautiful place.  

That's where GlobalWAKEcup comes in.  They share this belief with me and with this belief, they have created this zero waste starter kit.  It is designed to help get rid of the "Big 4" (i.e. bags, bottles, cups, and straws).  They sent me a kit to try out and I've got to say that I'm totally smitten (as is SunStars).  The kit contains a vegan rucksack that has adjustable straps, a laptop pocket, side zipper access to get into the bag without unsnapping it, and several other small storage pockets.  

Also included in the kit are a bamboo travel coffee cup, a bamboo and stainless steel tea diffuser, and two different sized bamboo straws.  SunStars has taken over the coffee cup and the tea diffuser has become a staple in my daily routine.  It's the coolest.  It has a little stainless steel basket that sits in the top and holds loose leaf tea.  Once the tea is brewed, you can just remove it and enjoy your drink. I also used it the other day for a latte, and it was perfect because the lid screws on and I was able to shake my drink up to ensure that it was perfectly blended. 

Everything in this kit, and in their online shop, are sustainably sourced and super stylish.  GlobalWAKEcup also donates 10% of their proceeds to The Marine Conservation Society, who work tirelessly to protect sea life and clean the oceans. 

What's sustainable about this outfit? 

: the sweater was thrifted
: the hat and leg warmers were handmade
: the leggings are fair trade and handmade
: the rucksack and cups are ethically-made
