August was again very busy for me, mostly working and working some more. I am so happy it’s finally September and I have my two little holidays to relax and rewind! I am also more excited about this blog and the direction I am going with it with more sustainable and fashion posts, as apparent from the posts in August (I hope you like it as well) and following the inspiration of new month and new beginnings.
I started posting Sustainable New of the Month, which is just a collection of sustainable articles I’ve found very interesting although there are many more! I shared TED talks about sustainability and talked about Sustainable Fashion terminology. I wrote reviews on Before the Flood and Chasing Coral documentaries, which I do recommend for you to watch. In addition, I wrote opinion pieces questioning whether Big brands are stealing small brand’s thunder and Why do we expect fashion to be cheap.
Otherwise, my month was slightly better with finally finding amazing natural deodorant and sharing with you the amazing Lush cuticle cream. I’ve also been really enjoying books and my friends’ company, and the little moments in life!
What were you up to in August?
Chasing Coral is a documentary about the effects of climate change on coral and coral reefs. It is a highly emotional, beautiful and a dramatic film about documenting how coral reefs are dying and the majority of the world’s population doesn’t even know it. The Netflix Originals documentary filmed by the Exposure Labs has won a couple of awards and was chosen to several film festivals.
I thought this documentary was absolutely beautiful, with the beautiful scenes of the corals and the underwater diving, as well as the human emotion for the dying corals. I wasn’t prepared to be so emotional after watching a documentary about corals! I do wish they had addressed more deeply how coral reefs dying affects the ecosystem around it, the human’s who depend on it and more widely the planet, as I am sure there is so much still to understand on this topic. In addition, I would’ve loved to see more information on how coral calcification and dying could be avoided and how people can get involved. Of course, as it is happening due to climate change that is the first thing to address and there is a lot of information online on how to have a smaller carbon footprint. I still think they did a great work on initiating the message and acknowledgement around the world about again another problem that we have with the climate change and how urgent it is that we address and work on this issue!
I encourage you to check their trailer and watch the documentary on Netflix, although I must warn you that it is very sad! For more information on the documentary, the movement and what actions you can take, you can check their website.
