Let these ethical bloggers inspire you to live with less consumption.
Endless consumption isn’t the way forward. Mindlessly filling your shopping cart with poorly-made products that will fall apart in months can never help you on your path to holistic balance with the planet and yourself.
At Daria Day, we know that well. We’re incredibly inspired by the effort that these ethical bloggers put into making it easy to find slow fashion and well-made lifestyle products. We take that same energy and put it into our curated collections of ethical gemstone jewelry.
In the spirit of these lifestyle and fashion guides, we’ve written about how to spark your outfits with meaningful jewelry. Flawless accessorizing and creativity can take the clothing you already own and make it into something fresh, new, and exciting -- without the endless cycles of entire new wardrobes.
