Traveling is not about crossing a destination off your list. When traveling @sonomacounty I was reminded how important getting to know a community is. You can learn so much from traveling. #SonomaCounty How can we visit a destination and protect it for generations to come? 1.Respect local signage. Stay on the trail, keep your distance, and no disturbing sea lions 🦭 2.Support local. From hotels to restaurants. Taste local produce. 3.Volunteer and donate to local causes. Not only can you learn so much about any area. You can swap resources and information. Maybe you’ll come home with a great idea on how to support your own community better. 4.Take time to reflect! Moments in nature can help you travel with care. #PauseAndEffect #LifeOpensUp #AD

Did you do on average a piece of clothing only worn seven times before getting tossed? 👚👗 How to shop for sustainable fashion: 👉🏽Materials Tencel, Organic Cotton, Bamboo, Wool, and Recycled polyester. 👉🏽Durability. Look at the construction, seams and stitches. Some brands like @Merrell rigorously test for durability. Ensuring quality items that will last. 👉🏽Buy things you love. Even if it’s not from a “sustainable brand”. Buying something that will last and that you enjoy wearing will ensure the item gets a long usage life. 👉🏽Shop secondhand first and donate your unworn items. 👉🏽Look for third-party certifications such as Global Organic Textile Standard, OEKO-TEX, etc. #sudtainablefashion #sustainableclothing #rewearthat #shopsustainably

Traveling has an impact on a community— its ecosystem, livelihood, and health. @sonomacounty It can be easy to travel fast. Jumping from one activity to the next, keeping the same pace as "normal life." But it’s the moments you step back, and look around to pause that inspire us to care for the earth. The more we connect with nature, the more we are inspired to protect her. Traveling through @SonomaCounty felt intentional from the local produce to the community’s true love of nature. Seeking to protect the redwoods, the coast, the goats, and the people. Filled with moments to pause and reflect, I’m coming home inspired to be a better steward to the earth. #PauseAndEffect #LifeOpensUp #AD

Grow food, NOT grass #PattrnPartner In my little neighborhood, there is a public food forest. A LOCAL park turned edible garden. Full of lush papayas, ripe mulberries, budding sugar apples and so much more. What a unique way to give back to the environment and the community. We often forget how important it is to spread sustainability in a positive light. It’s the little things like planting flowers and fruit that can inspire your friends and neighbors to get involved in the fight against climate change. #pattrnpartner Want to get up to date on ways to help the planet? @pattrnsocial  takes a look at simple and effective ways that you can make your life more sustainable!

Life lately 💕🌱 I’m just a big plant that needs sunshine and to live by the water. 👢:@alohas

You’ll never learn unless you try 💪🏽🌱Don’t be afraid of being a beginner. It’s those early moments that are most exciting. Just start! I can’t wait to be old, gray and wise one day. Full of knowledge. I want to know what plans cure the soul, I want to grow gardens, and make food that gets passed on long after me. So right now, I try. I kill plants. I garden in pots. I learn from those wiser than me. I bake good bread, I bake bad bread but I’m willing to show up. What’s one thing you want to learn?
