|I can’t live without Klean Kanteen's insulated bottles for coffee or keeping water cold on long hikes and I have saved tons of money not buying plastic water bottles. There’s also that whole reducing my exposure to chemicals in plastic and saving the planet thing. It’s really a no-brainer.|
|My favorite shoes of all time are Ahnu’s Pier 3s in black. I have never gotten so many compliments on a pair of shoes in my life. I can wear them to work, on my lunch time walk, and to meet friends for dinner afterward. You also can’t go wrong with the Montaras for no-blister hiking. To sweeten the pot, Ahnu will donate 10% of ALL purchases made when you shop through this this link.|
|True Nature Botanicals creates incredibly luxurious products free of harmful chemicals. They also give back to support our work and we love that! I currently can’t live without the True Nature Botanicals solid scents. They smell great, are free of synthetic fragrance and they come in a cute compact that fits in even my smallest of purses. I can’t wait to try their new Dead Sea Bath Salts.|
