Change is Coming [part one]
New Decade, New Kindred Bohéme
This coming February, Kindred Bohéme is turning 4. A decent amount of time for growth and observation. Over the last 4 years, we’ve changed and evolved as a team and as individuals. And with growth, comes a deeper discovery of our “why”.
No doubt, change can be scary, but what’s the alternative…remain in our old habits and mindset when our inner voice is telling us to leap? As they say, “nothing changes if nothing changes.” We’re choosing to leap. In hopes of living with more purpose and serving you in a way that will speak life into your everyday.
Beginning in January, Kindred Bohéme will be transitioning into a sustainable lifestyle brand. Both our salon and boutique will focus on becoming eco-friendly and offering sustainable goods. Adopting the mindset and habits that love our planet and slow down our days.
Over the past year, we have developed a greater awareness and passion for living a slow, sustainable lifestyle. Therefore, we began educating ourselves and searching for brands who align. We have been carrying sustainable goods since we opened, but know there is room for improvement.
What does it mean to practice a slow, sustainable lifestyle ?
“Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual's or society's use of the Earth's natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet.
Slow living is a lifestyle emphasizing slower approaches to aspects of everyday life. ... People every day are constantly living at a fast pace which is making them feel like their lives are chaotic – but with slow living they end up taking a step back and start enjoying life -- being conscious of sensory profusion.” *
We believe slow living and sustainable living go hand in hand to achieve optimal health and happiness in our everyday lives. And we desire for our space to provide the inspiration, goods, and services to help you cultivate both.
Something new we will be offering is a weekly journal covering an array of topics centered around this lifestyle. We will also be hosting Q&A's via instagram to connect one on and answer any questions you have. AND more exciting changes we will announce in the coming weeks.
If you’ve been curious about slow, sustainable living but have felt overwhelmed with where to begin or how to improve, allow us to guide you through our journey and our business. Remembering that we all start somewhere and our paths will be individually unique, our culture will be one without judgement or intimidation. We’re all in this together. Learning and practicing the art of caring for our planet, each other, and ourselves.
We are beyond excited to join hands with you, embarking on this new decade with mindful action.
