Don't stress about what you need to buy for your mother's special occasion; for most Mum's the best present is your presence.Yes it's that simple, just spend time with her, no store bought card, bunch of flowers or chocolates will warm her heart as much as any small efforts to show her how much she is appreciated.
As all Inkkas fans know we are proud to partner with Trees For The Future and plant a tree for each pair of Inkkas shoes sold.To this date Inkkas have planted 163,847 trees.
The reason why I like this partnership so much is because Trees for The Future implement a Forest Garden Approach which the latest data from the organisation indicates ends hunger for most families in just one year!
This approach works by systematically planting specific fast growing trees (fruit trees, hardwoods and food crops) over a four year period. Forest Gardens grow to consist of thousands of trees that provide many families with not only sustainable food sources but livestock feed, products to sell, fuel and often a 400% increase in annual income after the 4 year period.
Trees have created a Carbon Calculator to help you Make A Difference and offset your footprint in honour of Earth Day.
Australians will need to make some conversions so here is a guide to help you with that.
1 Litre = 0.264 Gallons
1 Kilometre = 0.621 Miles
I calculated I need to plant 25,000 trees to offset my families carbon footprint for the year. What a shock, I had better get started!
Doing my best to Go Green!
Well it's been action stations at Green Street this week with the arrival of Inkkas new shipment from Mexico. We are super excited about the quality of the new styles and are pretty confident our Northern Beaches customers are going to love them also.
Not only because they are super cute but all our new styles are 100% vegan, unisex and with Inkkas planting a tree for each pair sold we think this is just a Win: Win: Win!
We are offering our customers 15% off Inkkas retail price when shopping in store in Brookvale.
How beautiful is this jumpsuit? It's been the talk of the town, and always in a good way.... Every customer has fallen in love with it and who can blame them? Dress it up or down we're planning for winter in it with a fitted skivvy underneath :)
Come in and try on the timeless range from the uber talented Carlie Ballard
It may look like an unassuming warehouse in a slightly industrial street next to Warringah Mall, but after we've done a bit more gardening and installed the rest of our signage we'll look like we're here to stay.
We really felt that the Northern beaches of Sydney could do with a bit of sustainable fashion flame. After the great shop in Manly, The Darley Collective closed down recently we knew there needed to be another local destination where customers could shop their ethics without concern. Brookvale was the perfect choice being the centre of the beaches and we're 200 metres from the great shops in the mall that share our philosophies. OFarm the organic food grocer and plant based cafe is a short walk away and so is Naked Foods that sell bulk foods plastic free!
Come down to meet us at 15 Green St Brookvale, on Thursday 10th May 2018 between 5 and 9pm. There'll be music and champagne and we'll be be having a bit of a knees up to celebrate opening the northern beaches most needed ethical department store!!
We'll be up for a chat and to tell you about all our products and the stories behind them.
