Hello! Today I stopped by Bourbon Coffee. Bourbon Coffee opened its door in Kigali, Rwanda in 2007, and now has coffee shops in DC and Cambridge, MA. Bourbon Coffee is the first coffee chain to originate from Africa. They believe in producing coffee naturally crop to cup. It was a beautiful space where I felt uplifted and joyous. I enjoyed the Virunga roast. The Virunga roast is sweet and vibrant, with a pecan nuttiness and a smooth clover-honey finish (bourboncoffeeusa.com). It was a delightful cup of coffee, and I could tell the beans were grown and harvested with love.
As I was sitting and waiting for my coffee, I thought about our world. We have the luxury of living on such a beautiful, majestic planet, and I feel like we have completely taken it for granted. My mind kept thinking: we’ve got to heal our world. Not just for ourselves, but for future generations.
Being a college student makes sustainable living quite difficult, but I am going to challenge myself to cut down on my plastic use and my overall consumption. I am also going to try and shop with businesses that are taking care of our planet.
I stumbled upon a cool athletic clothing company. Girlfriend Collective takes plastic water bottles and fishing line, and makes athletic workout gear. I think that its ingenious to take something so destructive like plastic water bottles, and use them to make clothing. A great way to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Check them out, and let them know I sent ya! 😉
Today, find a way that you can help heal our Earth!
