we love … barista oat milk lattes

If for all your own reasons you don’t drink cow’s milk but you love your creamy frothy fabulous coffee espressos. Then like me you have probably been thinking, “surely someone can make a milk than doesn’t come from a cow, but makes that perfect creamy texture and flavour I love”. The happy answer is, they have. The Alternative Dairy Co.’s 100% animal free Oat Milk barista only line puts the power back into the hands of your café-meister’s expertise. Now they can make it, just the way I like it. … and I love it.…

from the editor

Welcome to our first edition for 2020. What a year it has been so far, full of sadness, fear and overwhelming uncertainty. The devastation and loss emanating from the bushfires caused much heartbreak for many Australian families, businesses and communities. We have experienced our precious bushland razed and our wildlife perish. Now we face threats to our health, with the virus challenging communities across the globe and our supermarket shelves cleaned out of basic provisions, as people brace for an uncertain future. But through times of crisis, the best aspects of human nature can emerge. It is imperative that we pull together and look after each other. The word that resonates with me is resilience, as it embodies all the principles of sustainability: creating an environment of self-sufficiency, growing our own food…

zavi

ZAVI is a sustainable fashion brand for men and women. ZAVI’s vision is to provide a sustainable and conscious alternative to fast fashion shopping by making sustainable fashion desirable and affordable. ZAVI’s approach to fabrics has always been very practical and functional. Our current collection is made from 100% biodegradable and natural fabrics. When it comes to fabrics, “natural” isn’t always necessarily a good thing. For example, viscose and rayon are semi-synthetic fabrics, meaning they are made from wood pulp; however, they use trees, which are sacred to us, and we believe they should not be cut down for fabrics; they also require a large amount of chemicals in their processing. So although a lot of brands claim viscose is an “ecofriendly” option, the reality is slightly different. Our current collection is…
