We know that fighting climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our generation. So what shifts can we make in our everyday lives to better the planet?
In order for us to live long, happy lives, our planet must be healthy too. In this week's newsletter, we've rounded up some of our favorite tips, products, and ideas to be more sustainable in our everyday. And as a mom of three, knee-deep in diapers, wipes and bottles, I especially love these ideas from Andrea Arria-Devoe, producer of the documentary Straws.
You're a role model for everyone around you - especially your family. If you remember to bring your own cup, buy less stuff or think twice about your plastic consumption, people around you will take notice.
Peace, love & EVOO, Katerina
Olive Oil Sommelier Katerina Mountanos, is the Founder & CEO of Kosterina Olive Oil, which produces 100% organic, extra virgin olive oil from Greece sold directly to consumers online. Katerina is an ecommerce expert and has built beauty, home and wellness businesses for Amazon, Jet, and Walmart. She founded beauty services company, Manicube, which was sold to The Red Door by Elizabeth Arden in 2015. Katerina is very passionate about olive oil, the Mediterranean diet and eating for health and longevity.
This time of year, there's always a lot of pressure to implement quick-fixes around our health to reach certain goals. But, my purpose in starting Kosterina was always to help more people create accessible, healthy habits for themselves and their families over the long-term.
We've been spending more time at home than ever this year because of the pandemic, and because of that many of us have been engaging in old pastimes like playing board games or even making crafts. But, none of those activities beat how much we've been experimenting with cooking at home over the past 8 months.
