Our March Magazine
This month differs a little from our previous two issues. In January and February, we provided a campaign-based offering. If you’re new to our Magazine, our campaigns are themed (usually with an associated hashtag) and may have been running on our website and socials for several years. For our March issue, we’ve opted out of campaigns to share some of the behind the scenes here at Sustainability in Style in readiness to launch our new creative baby, the Time is a Non-Renewable Resource, self-coaching sustainability program and planner. In this issue you will also find links to mindfulness-based downloads, tools, musings, and resources.
