On our previous Bee Good blog-post, we introduced you to Sophia and Michael - Swedish-American couple behind the Live Slow Run Far -blog who decided to give up the big city life in New York City and move to the Swedish countryside.
Besides now living in the Swedish archipelago, they are ambitious plant-based foodies, gardeners and trail runners. In this interview, you will learn where they find the inspiration for all the delicious vegetarian food recipes, what they think about sustainable eating and how also athletes can follow a plant-based diet and still train hard.
Wool outperforms any other fabrics when it comes to moisture-wicking, warmth and odor-fighting capabilities. Merino wool is known for its quality, softness and ability to regulate body temperature even during high-intensity activity. Wool fibers have scales that are removed to make the fiber soft and comfortable using a unique process that is chlorine-free. Weekendbee offers only 100 % mulesing-free merino wool products.
Have you ever dreamed of giving up the hectic life in the city? And moving to the countryside to slow down and get more time for hobbies like running and gardening? This is exactly what Sophia and Michael did two years ago and they couldn't be more happy with the decision.
At Weekendbee we run an ambassador program called TestBees. Active, sporty people are recruited to use sustainably produced sportswear and we ask them to report how they like the products. Here you can read the story from our TestBee Rosie from Munich.
Plastic is so familiar to all of us. The role plastic plays in our everyday life is interminable. Many times we don't even understand where plastic is involved in, for example, cosmetics, toothpaste, clothes, electronics etc. We handle it every day from the food packaging we buy for the computers we work with and the cars we drive. Unfortunately, many of the plastics we touch in our daily life are used only once and thrown away.
As a sustainable online store, our aim at Weekendbee is to operate as environmentally friendly way as possible. But all organizations have operations that cause CO2 emissions that can't be avoided. Our goal is to be climate neutral organization which means that all the emissions that can't be avoided, will be compensated with Karbonautti.
Over the past 6 weeks, I have been part of a sustainability think tank. But not just an ordinary one: a sailing one. Together with 17 other young professionals and students, I crossed the Atlantic Ocean. Our mission: to help a big technology company in the Netherlands become more sustainable and with that: inspire and motivate installers to drive the energy transition.
We at Weekendbee love snowy winters and we want to have them in the future as well. That is why we support Protect Our Winters Finland in their mission to fight against climate change. Together we can raise the discussion and make actions that have an effect for the future.
We got an interview with POW-ambassador Jani Johansén who tells us, why he loves the winters and why he wants to protect them.
The wellbeing of bees and the education of their importance is part of Weekendbee´s mission, so we joined forces with Sugar Daddies Co to spread this sweet message around the world. We talked with one of the Daddies, Ville Rinta, about flowers, bees, and honey.
