Please welcome A Life Sustained sponsor OpenSky.
OpenSky is a new online shopping resource that offers an alternative to the experience that one might have with a site such as Amazon.com. Although you do have the option to browse all available products, what makes OpenSky different is the use of "curators" who select products and brands that might be of interest to you, based on your interests. In their words:
On OpenSky, you create your own experience. You decide, based on your personal interests and passions, which people to connect with—we like to call them “curators.” They’re a growing group of tastemakers and experts who are deeply passionate about what they do and what they love. You’ll discover what they discover: the most amazing products and brands you’ve never heard of and the stories (and the brilliant designers and artisans) behind them. You’ll be surprised, delighted, engaged.
When one is mindful about shopping, it can be challenging, as I'm sure you know, to find things that fit into the criteria that we set for ourselves. With OpenSky, you can connect with like-minded individuals and then follow their leads to products that might be helpful for you. For example, if a vegan lifestyle is something that you prioritize, you can "connect" with Alicia Silverstone and see her suggestions for products that are vegan-friendly. Mariel Hemingway has some great suggestions of products that are organic and natural. Sophie Uliano has eco-beauty covered. And on and on.
In celebration of Earth Day weekend, OpenSky is calling upon their vegan and earth-friendly experts to handpick items that can help us all live a little bit more lightly on the earth, like this collection of cruelty-free fashion.
OpenSky is generously offering to one A Life Sustained reader a bamboo iPhone case! In America alone, 150 million cell phone cases are thrown away each year. A bamboo alternative is a great opportunity to make a conscious decision about the environment. The pliable bamboo of this iPhone case is stronger than most plastics and will stand up better to scrapes and falls. And when a newer phone hits the market, the bamboo casing is 100% biodegradable.
