The Kind Planet – For Circular Living
“Habits are formed when we repeat a behaviour and it becomes part of us,” says Eva, the founder of The Kind Planet Blog. She explores with her readers the idea of Circular Living; thinking more about where items we use come from, how they are made, how they are used, where they go and what impact they have on the health and well-being of people and the earth. By educating and challenging us to become more connected to our actions and to think about the impact of products we use, Eva is spreading her flavour of kindness around the planet.
