In this episode of Earthy we explore how to use technology to stretch your current waredrob into more outfits and how to let professional desiners dress you with the clothes you already have! Marianna Milkis-Walker shares with us how she and her company has taken out the headache of what to wear and how to minimize your closet. Read our blog post about this interview here.
Through the use of Epytom's Facebook Messenger Bot you can enter your waredrob once and have it dress you everyday thereafter if you'd like. Simply check the current weather conditions and the occasion and the bot will create an outfit for you. This saves you decision capitol for more important decisions you'll have to make throughout the day and time sorting through your closet trying to come up with an outfit. THey claim that they will save you up to 1.5 hours each week by letting them pick out your outfit.
Since there are about 700 unique outfits that this bot can create with a core 40 pieces (including shoes and accessories) it will help you pare down your waredrobe and rid the "I have nothing to wear crisis" which will also reduce your shopping.
For this Urban Farming Friday I had the great pleasure to speak with Queen Bee, Lisa Graham of YYC Beeswax. I had a lot to learn about this sweet topic, and Lisa didn't disappoint.
I had no idea how many products bees produced. My favorite was probably bee's pollen. I loved how Lisa described the pollen traps as doormats for the bees. The pollen simply falls off of their feet as if they wiped their feet before entering their honeycomb home. I learned that the pollen comes in numerous colors and flavors depending on where the bees were and which plants the bees were pollinating from.
Since Graham is a soloprenuer (one person startup) we also had the chance to talk shop, and swap the pros and cons of being and entrepreneur, the challenges a startup offers, and the tools that have helped her shape and grow her company as well as manage the day to day operations.
Minimalism is about joy. Learn about the world of the less and how minimalism will help identify your core values and help you structure your actions and behaviors around those values.
