Did you know that this month is #PlasticFreeJuly?
When I found out about this, I vowed that I was going to do my little bit to be more eco-friendly. I have chosen to say “NO!” to plastic bags at all the shops, & carry my own fabric bags with me. If I forget them at home or in the car, then it is too bad for me & I just have to make multiple trips to get everything inside. We don’t get takeaways often, but when we do, I say no to straws. Fruit & veggies at the shops do not need to be put into that flimsy plastic bag to be weighed the whole time, & I am really just trying to take note of how I can make a difference.
Whilst I was sitting back & thinking about all of this, a friend’s post popped up on my Facebook, & I was reminded of her kind heart & what a difference she is making in the world.
Gemma & I met when we were studying Beauty Therapy together, & have stayed friends through the years. Although we don’t get to see each other as often as I wish we could, I am extremely grateful for social media so we have been able to stay in contact & see what the other one is up to! Gem has 2 GORGEOUS little boys, is a super healthy vegan-yoga-loving lady, & in between all of this started up her very own range of cruelty-free lifestyle apparel which promotes a kinder lifestyle. I am SO proud of her & everything that she has achieved, & knew that when I wanted to write something about living “kind”, she had to be my feature.
Name: Gemma Dawn Combrinck
I am so proud of my friend & all that she has achieved. Plus her kindness has taught me a lot, & shown me to be more aware of what is happening around us. If we all made one small lifestyle change, we could really make a massive difference in the world.
