Beautiful Sustainable Products, Ideas and Information for an Urban Lifestyle
A sustainable lifestyle embraces the future. It is surrounding yourself with beautiful products and ideas that stand the test of time, leave no footprint and build joy and meaning into your life.Share Tweet LinkedIn Embed pszr.co/mQsfE 931 views

Imagine a world that is a sanctuary, a world where you could live the life you have imagined and create more beauty not less. Imagine surrounding yourself with beautiful products, food and entertainment but knowing that your choices are investing in the future not draining it. What we are sharing in our Sustainability Playbook is that being a Greenie can be very simple and very cool, it is just about creating meaning in your life and shopping and living with a conscience. I started The Foxy Press because I loved beautiful things but I soon realised that no matter how good something looks it can't be beautiful unless all the components of its creation are ethical and thoughtful.
The new revolution is an environmental one and it is up to us as consumers and decision makers to ask some questions. Sustainability should be about regeneration not about maintaining the status quo and in saying that it is a responsibility we all have to take on. For a long while a sustainable life has been left to lefty greenies who were seen as crazy hippies. Well if we want to listen to the best brains in the universe then according to the scientists we all need to become green eco warriors or risk losing the only place that provides us life.
With this in mind I started to look for products and ideas that were beautiful, functional and mindful of the environment and the people who created them. Suddenly I started to really care about what was happening around me. There is a reason we are destroying the environment and it is all about money and greed. This is not going to stop so the idea is to create a new direction for the economy to move in and we have a chance to do that with our consumer power.
If we only shop sustainably and eat wholefoods, (with a little coffee and chocolate thrown in) embrace organic and biodynamic processes and look at how to recycle and upcycle we make a very big statement that will force manufacturers to change the way they do business. I am not a purist and I don't imagine that being an environmental purist would be easy to achieve or too much fun. I will probably never make my own makeup remover, home cleaners and ride a bike (I am useless) but I do what I can as often as I can.
If we could all become eco warriors and wear a silly hat then we could change the world ... imagine that!
I love fashion, make-up, delicious food, living in the city, driving a car. These things will likely always be a part of how we operate and generate joy, however if we bought lasting designer fashion and knew who had made our clothes we contribute to a world economy and raise living standards in poor countries. If we only buy ethical make up that has not been tested on animals we contribute to a reduction in pain and torture plus we reduce the hazardous products we put in and on our bodies. If we eat organic wholefoods we put big GM companies out of commission and we end the palm oil trade and return the natural environment to the ecosystem that will sustain us on earth. If we look at recycling our clothes and waste and upcycle we become creative curators of the world. When we manufacture and create with an eye on the entire process we offer everyone in the chain the respect they deserve and we invest in the future.
I keep finding incredible brands and people who are working tirelessly to bring about change within a modern urban context and so I wanted to offer them a place to share with you, their ideas, brands, processes and the intrinsic beauty of not only what they create but also of how they think.
As part of this sustainable visualisation book there are interactive pages that allow you to write down how you are growing and changing your lifestyle month by month, your successes and your challenges plus your tips to share with your friends.
Each week a small change in each person could mean a collective change that is impactful and impressive so we urge you to live sustainably, live beautifully and live joyfully. And support our book because really this is your book. (Inside Page Design Below)
