One of the questions we get on a regular basis...bad hippies? There is no such thing.
While I agree I will explain.
For me I consider myself an 80/20 hippie. Okay, what the hell does that mean? 80% of the time I do my best to be the best steward to myself, those around me, & mother earth. I use our all natural bad hippies products, recycle, reuse (you should see the garage - I may need an intervention), I am a vegetarian and eat mostly vegan. I try to be aware of the products that I use and how they can be processed by my body, but also what happens when you use them or wash them down the drain.
This is basically how we birthed the idea for bad hippies, but more on that in another post.
When I was younger, being a child of the 80s and 90s, everything was excess. Big Macs can in Styrofoam, there was no such thing as bulk sizes, and you would run out of toilet paper in three uses. As I grew and got mildly wiser I started to question some of these practices. Can this planet sustain them...do turtles really enjoy eating plastic bags? The answer is nope, not even a little bit.
So the hippies came to be several years back in the living room on Candela Lane in Clay, NY.
I digress...so what is the 20%?
As many of you know I am the owner of two businesses, bad hippies being one and I am also an independent consultant for Rodan + Fields which is a premium skincare company. I love the product, the company, and all of the amazing people that are part of my team. It is working, but only kind of because when you have passion it isn't hard to sell what you love. So if you are interested in learning more about the product or business give me a shout (<<<<<shameless plug!). So I use quality and effective skincare that is part of my 20%. I also color my hair. And I have zero time to mess with henna. I also am currently using conventional toothpaste...shhhhh.
The more I look around the more I realize how people choose not to see.
Whatever you choose to do in life or products you choose to use just be informed. Know what is in them, where them come from, how they were treated in life and in death.
These are my thoughts for the day. Short and sweet.
I hope you all have a beautiful day!
