I hadn’t intended to write this blog, as it’s a bit removed from the running beach/travel/baby theme, but it’s been on my mind this summer with news of the never-ending bushfires ravaging Australia, and the stories from family back home in Sydney indirectly affected by the smoke and ash blanketing the sky. The intention of this blog is to share ways I’ve found to cope with the feelings I’ve felt since the start of the bushfires. I’ve since learnt that a collective name for the emotions associated with the threat of climate change (anger, fear, outrage, grief, loss, helplessness, utter sadness, despair, tiredness and a sense of being overwhelmed) is Ecological Grief, Eco-Anxiety, Climate Change Distress or Climate Despair.
There’s only one week until Christmas, and if you’re anything like me, you’re still running around doing last-minute Christmas shopping, and have yet to wrap them all. Our belief at Mama Qucha is that every step you take towards a sustainable future, no matter how small, adds up and counts towards the bigger picture. Here are some quick last-minute Christmas gift-wrapping ideas that are eco-friendly and won’t cost the earth.
What is it about the beach that leaves you feeling so amazing at the end of a lovely sunny beach day? That feeling of relaxation and achievement, of happiness at the memories you’ve just made, as you drift off to sleep? Mama Qucha shares the magic behind that amazing feeling.
We're happy to announce that from the end of October, we will be posting out all Australian orders in HEROPACKS, a biodegradeable home-compostable mailer bag, that when composted turns into some pretty yummy food for worms in the ground.
