Leaving a Footprint

February 14, 2020

Well, it's Valentine's Day and I'm sure you've already been bombarded with messages about romance, love, and all that mushy stuff. So why not talk about something different instead?

Perhaps one of the longest relationships you'll ever have is the one you have with planet Earth.

From the mountains,

to the hills,

to the plains,

to the canyons,

to the oceans,

to the animals,

and to the people.

This Earth matters. It's our home.

So here's to leaving it better than you found it,

to always gibbon more than you take,

and to caring about solving the world's prob-llamas, whether big or small.

 

(And since it's Valentine's Day, here's also to shedding love on someone today.)

This week's fabric finder is a great example of making a mark on the world. Karen Duca works with an organization called USAID whose mission is to improve global health, promote equality, and develop education, while still protecting biodiversity and helping the environment.

While traveling in Tanzania, Karen picked up this awesome Giraffic print.

Here’s to leaving a positive footprint on the world & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

PS. Plus a fan favorite that's now back in stock. We found some extra fabric laying around so we decided to make a few more. Enjoy :)

"During our trip to Laos, we took a long river trip up the Mekong river. I wanted to visit a remote elephant sanctuary where the elephants are not required to perform heavy labor and their natural habitat is protected. The elephants in this sanctuary are handled by people called Mahouts. When only a small boy, a Mahout is paired with a baby elephant, and they are bonded for life.The Mahout are a people and a way of life that is rapidly disappearing. It was truly special to meet them.”
