When I came up with the name for Glitter & Twigs, it was mostly due to a random combination of words. After some profound contemplation it became a fitting juxtaposition of words to describe my core values. There’s a raw, rough and natural side to our existence, and there’s one where all people are allowed to shine and thrive, no matter the amount of light available. Twigs, and glitter. Glitter & Twigs.

Sustainability is intersectional: ethical, environmental as well as economical issues all have to be considered when running a sustainable businesses. Economical sustainability is, to me, a world where small businesses thrive and local communities flourish. Anything I deliver to you has been consciously sourced while supporting passionate, small businesses. To ensure the smallest possible environmental impact, my products and marketing materials are mostly hand-made, recyclable or compostable, and plastic free. Additionally, I choose to work with businesses who demonstrate an ethical and inclusive workplace, and fair pay for their workers.

There’s no sustsainability without equality. I work consciously on using inclusive language, be open minded and educate myself. I support the Black Lives Matter Global Network, and the Mind Out LGBTQ mental health service financially, and as a teacher I believe that sustainability starts with education. I aim to get even better at amplifying this through my channels in 2021, and to hold businesses I work with accountable.

I really hope you share and appreciate my values, chosen with love for you, our communities and the environment.
