Honest Goods for the Conscious Home

with Hope & Twine

I'm sure many of us can remember the first few moments we realized our shopping habits had a negative impact on the planet and its people. It's a moment when you have a rush of guilt consume your entire being, and you can't stop thinking about it. At least, this is what happened to me and the lovely woman behind Hope & Twine. For Bree, it all started with a tea towel. She had just returned home to Canada from a few years of traveling and living overseas. Her experiences in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand were flashing through her mind as she started putting together her new place. She thought about the poverty and how her purchases could affect someone else.

This quote is everything {& from her favorite author, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn}, "Thus it is that no cruelty whatsoever passes by without impact. Thus it is that we always pay dearly for chasing after what is cheap.". Bree looked at the $1 tea towels while shopping to fill her apartment with the necessary home goods, and couldn't find it in her to purchase. She knew something was wrong. How can things be so cheap? Her answer - they can't, and thus began her journey of Hope & Twine, a place where conscious consumers can purchase goods for their homes without the guilt, but with all the confidence.

Hope & Twine is a curated collection of ethically-made products that support sustainable incomes while respecting the planet. Bree truly has an eye for decorating your home. From a funky disco blanket to towels so soft you want to live in them, Hope & Twine has your place covered. Speaking of towels, this one pictured is amazing! Definitely the softest towel I've over owned. It is made from 100% Organic Turkish Cotton in Canada {Hope & Twine's own private label}, and is unbleached in order to be kind to this beautiful planet. They wash well, are very absorbent and a great price {$44 for a set or $25 for a single}. 

Moving from the bathroom to the kitchen, we have the Rustic Block Print Napkins - because paper napkins are so 2016 ;) This cottage-ready set is hand stamped with natural dye in India on 100% cotton. They are from Eternal Threads, an organization working to fight human trafficking in India and Nepal. To learn more about their production process & what your purchase supports, Bree has written a great post all about this brand. I've got them packed and ready for my Europe trip! No paper for me, just cute napkins to-go. #zerowaste
