In our small company, we like to think about individuals - their style, their story, their inspiration. We often see a customer combine their jewelry in a way we had never imagined, or we hear an adventure they went on that makes us want to follow in their footsteps.
Today, in honor of Earth Day, we want to focus on one individual that has deeply inspired us. When Saskia first heard about Greta Thunberg, she was immediately struck by her incredible strength and determination. If you have never heard of this remarkable 16 year-old from Sweden, you should watch this TED talk about how she decided to walk out of school to protest the adults around her doing so little in the face of climate change. She sparked an international youth movement that has spread across over 100 nations and multiple continents.
What Greta represents to us, and what we strive to embody in our own lives, is a willingness to stand up and use your voice - no matter how small - to fight for your beliefs. We each have more power and agency than we know, and once we discover how to use it, we can move mountains.
Today, in honor of Greta, do one thing to help the planet (we’re riding our bikes to work and cutting out meat). Who knows, maybe you’ll discover the power of your own voice.
