This week in sustainability

Khala & Co. makes reusable food packaging from sustainable materials like beeswax and hemp. They have reusable food wraps, coffee filters, produce bags, etc. with an assortment of designs.

We don’t get compensated for these callouts, but we are believers in the brands and their work in making less wasteful alternatives available to the masses.

Community tips for living better

“Be a positive energy trampoline — absorb what you need and rebound more back.”

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.”

“As you challenge your fears with easy to win tasks, you get leverage on them. Pretty soon your fear will look small in comparison to your progress.”

“When I put in my 2-weeks notice and got ready to take the leap, I thought that was it. I thought that was the big leap.

It wasn’t.”
