Life+Style+Justice is a resource for stylish, sustainable living with an emphasis on social justice. I believe in the concept of "everyday justice"- that normal, everyday actions can affect change in the areas the world needs it most.
I recently completed a "7 gallon challenge" with Numi Organic Tea as part of World Water Day and to raise awareness about Numi's Together For H20PE Campaign (you can watch a replay of the challenge in the "highlights" section of my instagram profile). Living with only 7 gallons of water for an entire day was challenging, but manageable, and I realized that the manageability of the challenge fact was largely due to the fact that I've been slowly implementing water-saving habits over the years as I've become more conscious of the precious resource that clean water is.
Years ago, one of my childhood best friends spent a summer in Uganda. When she came back, she was sporting a beautiful pair of beaded sandals that she'd purchased from a local vendor there. I loved those sandals, and I watched her wear them for YEARS (actually, I think they're probably still going strong). I now own a pair of sandals from RoHo that closely mimic that legendary pair of shoes, and I'm having so many nostalgic feelings!
