We have so many exciting things happening over at @bayouwithlove , and bringing back apparel is one of them! I am working on remaking a version of my grandmother’s belt-bag in the same cruelty-free material we used to cover the cushions in my van, and I think you’re going to love it! Would you wear a belt-bag? Do you treasure pieces from your family members that you’d love to re-make one day? Wearing hand-me-downs and vintage pieces is also another great way to consider the amount of resources we use, so if sustainable living is important to you, that’s a great option too
🌱🌎 🌱Happy Sunday!

GOOD Morning! As most of you already know every Sunday I donate my social media to my @yearsofliving team to talk about carbon pricing! This week's post is from Kylie Ford, a student at Fordham University in NYC. If you have a second, read our Sunday posts and get involved. Remember it’s up to YOU GUYS! “I grew up biking and hiking through the forests of Southeastern Pennsylvania. My youth gave me a love and respect for nature that has shaped my adult life so far. In many ways, I took for granted the formative role that nature played in my upbringing and my health. My education at Fordham has shown me just how un-typical this upbringing was. Many communities’ lack of access to green space affects not only their quality of life, but also their ability to breathe. Many cities lack adequate trees to purify the air from the smog resulting from vehicular and factory emissions. The smog in the air aggravates asthma in affected areas, intensifying symptoms and leading to asthma attacks. This reality was shocking to me—air pollution had always seemed like a far away problem. Unfortunately, it is a reality for many domestic and global communities, with real, human consequences.

I became involved in Our Climate because I respect the environment and the people who reside in it. Through carbon pricing, Our Climate and the Put a Price on It campaign seek to reduce carbon emissions, a major type of air pollution. Implementing carbon pricing would have positive effects on the local and global scale by reducing damage to the air that people breathe and the health of the planet.

Carbon pollution needs to be drastically reduced, and eventually phased out. As the report issued by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change makes clear, time is running out. We need to reduce carbon emissions now. Lack of action now will result in irreparable future damage in our lifetimes, and will give an undue burden to future generations. Carbon pricing is a much-needed step in the right direction towards the carbon neutral, renewable energy future.”

The perfect way to spend a Friday night. A glass of wine + Moana on repeat.

Missing home. Missing our animals and our garden, our teas, and all of the plant medicine that surrounds us. When we travel, I try to create a space that feels familiar by planting mini herb gardens in the window sill, I bring sprouting jars, I make tinctures and continue our morning tea time. But the truth is after a while you just crave the comfort of being in your space, and today is one of those days for me. How do you take home with you when you’re away? And Mamas, what are some of things you do to create a familiar space for your minis?

I can’t help it. All I want to do is take pictures of this guy. Can you blame me? Two of my favs in one photo #mcm 🖤🌻 🖤

GOOD Morning! As most of you already know every Sunday I donate my social media to my @yearsofliving team to talk about carbon pricing! This week's post comes from Rose Thompson, a student at Seattle University. The ballot initiative in Washington State would be the first carbon fee in the U.S., so we are doing everything we possibly can to win in November! Yes!!! Get involved!!!!!!
“The past couple summers in Washington, I’ve stepped outside my home for weeks on end, only to be able to see a rough outline of a nearby hill due to the choking smoke from wildfires. A nurse walked into the coffee shop I work at expressing just how many patients were coming into the hospital due to smoke-related illnesses. We live in a society where it appears every choice we make is a choice between environmental sustainability and economic growth. According to economists, enacting a carbon price would be the single most effective way at both a local and global level for countries to significantly reduce their carbon emissions.
That is why I'm so excited about Initiative 1631 in Washington State, which will be on the November ballot. I-1631 would hold polluters accountable by requiring them to pay for every ton of carbon pollution they emit; the money raised will support a just transition to clean energy. This would be a HUGE step towards cleaner air and water and a healthier world for generations to come. As a fellow working with Our Climate, we are working to reach out to as many people as possible, to help those who are unsure or uneducated about initiative 1631 understand why we are saying “yes” to clean energy and “no” to fossil fuels. We are the younger generation, the ones who will have to deal with the devastating impacts of human-caused climate change for years to come, the ones who will breathe less easy, worry about how much clean water is left and wonder which forest is next to burn down. Please do your part and say yes to #PutAPriceOnIt, and volunteer to help pass I-1631 at yeson1631.org/volunteer.”

If you ever find yourself in Manhattan or Sedona, please do yourself a favor and visit @thechaispot . I had the pleasure of spending an evening with Khalida and David, listening to the story of how they met and what inspired them to create this space. Over a cup of chai, we shared stories on human connection and love conquering all, while Khalida opened up about growing up in Pakistan and falling in love with David in America. I was so deeply moved by their vision for this space, and the fact that they donate 50% of all the proceeds to building schools for children in Pakistan. Thank you for an amazing evening filled with music, love and the gift that you two are.

For the past 5 years we have worked with @connecther for the Girls Impact the World Film festival to help young female filmmakers around the world tell stories about the disproportionate affect environmental issues have on women. We’ve watched these young filmmakers turn into activists through their storytelling, and witnessed the profound impact their films have had in their communities around the world. Tonight we had the chance to spend a truly spectacular evening benefiting @isfofficial and @connecther with some incredible supporters of both the film festival and my husband’s foundation. Thank you to everyone who traveled to spend the evening here with us. And to the beautiful @thechaispotnyc for hosting us on such a special night.

Last night was too fun! Sharing this stage with such a talented group while being directed by the legendary Academy Award-winning Bobby Moresco in a play that rocked me to my core... What an honor it was to say those words out loud, to live them for two hours on a stage in front of such an amazing audience all benefitting @cultureproject_ highlighting some very relevant issues we are facing today. Women Center Stage is Culture Project’s on going initiative focusing on human rights, gender and racial equality, and the freedom of artistic expression.

How do you stack your @bayouwithlove ? All of our new Classic Collection is 18k gold recovered from recycled @dell tech, with cultivated diamonds grown above ground locally using solar energy to guarantee they are 100% conflict free. I love adding these pieces to my story. Wearing things that look good but also feel good, that’s where it’s at!

Rehearsing a play I hope you all get the chance to see someday. So powerful. So relatable. So relevant. And yes, that is the legendary Bobby Moresco directing us. Pinch me 🙈
