BRANDS and COMPANIES THAT I SUPPORT:

AIRBNB: Since I discovered it a couple of years ago, I am a huge fan of Airbnb. I love how simple and quick it is to find a place to stay, cheaper and way more personal and authentic than hotels. The reviews and the booking system itself guarantee transparency and safety when booking and paying. It makes travel experiences more flexible, homy and more sustainable. Being in an actual apartment/home where you will be able to live like you were at home cuts down the costs and the environmental impact.

If you sign up here you can get a 25€ discount off of your first travel.

 

 

ORGANIC BASICS: sustainable and ethically made underwear, socks, basic t-shirts and activewear.

(visit the Organic Basics Website)

 

 

 

EVERLANE: this brand produces ethically made clothing at reasonable prices. They stick to quality wardrobe basics and staples to ensure to customers timeless pieces that will never go out of style (visit the Everlane website)

 

 

 

BETTER HELP: this is the online therapy platform I use on a weekly basis to talk to my counselor. As someone who struggles with mental health, it’s important for me to acknowledge my feelings and issues and try my best to change for the better and live a life I can be happy and proud of. I’ve made a review of this service, which you can read here. 

If you sign up using this referral link you will receive your first week of counseling for free.

 

 

GONE WEST: this is a tree planting company that works to offset CO2 emissions. Their aim is to create environmental and social benefits around the world: generate ethical, green, jobs and help to establish, or restore, natural habitats. A tree can absorb 1000kg of CO2 emissions during its life course. Wether you’re a company or a single individual, by deciding to support Gone West and plant a tree you can lower your environmental impact or even going fully carbon neutral, doing something amazing for our Mother Earth.
