Holiday Tips from Toad&Co

March 24, 2022

Our partner, Toad&Co, has always been committed to making a positive difference in the sustainability of the apparel industry and to working for good in their communities.  They manifest these core values by educating people on sustainable practices and inspiring folks to live their fullest lives. There is no better time than the holidays to focus these two goals.  During a season that is typically accompanied by increased purchases and by a substantial uptick in paper use (cards, wrapping, packaging), Toad&Co offers a quick list of things you might do to lighten the impact of your holiday.

This season may also hold the most opportunities to live your fullest life. A Grinch might say just the opposite what with all the lists, and traffic, and hurried people, and family dynamics. Nevertheless, moments of joy and fulfillment can be found among all this busy-ness:

Be inspired by Toad&Co employees and volunteer for a cause you care about in your community.

Take advantage of holiday time off to do the thing that gives you the most energy even if it means eschewing it all to spend time on your own.

Practice empathy—it’s a hectic time for a lot of people.

Take it outside so you can experience all the reasons we, The Renewal Workshop, and our partners, like Toad&Co, aim to keep our planet healthy.
