I often talk about what we put in our bodies as an important facet of our health.. Well so is what we put ON our bodies...and today, I am not talking about soap or body butters but rather, our clothes.

I watched the documentary The True Cost a few years ago (please see it if you haven’t), and it opened my eyes to how our clothing choices directly impact the health of others and of our planet.
-

These days, every item that I choose to be a part of my minimalist wardrobe (less than 30 pieces) is one I pick with much more consciousness around these issues.  AND as it turns out, I often end up picking awesome, durable, feel good pieces including this one- my well worn and well loved swimsuit. No surprise—what’s loving to others and Mama Earth often does the body good as well 😉

Let me know below if you are interested in me doing a video on my YT channel on “slow healthy fashion” with an update on my wardrobe.

blows.

That is one way.

But there is another entrance
and it creates a very different room.

You can enter mouth...
