La Dolce Vita...
An old-fashioned Italian phrase meaning "The Sweet Life" - The idea that we might have our cake and eat it too.
While everyone might have their own version, we find our fullness in simplicity:
Mixing a love for plants with the love for our city to create a large impact with a small footprint.
It would be inevitable that our worlds would collide with The Sweet Life of Being Vegan - a local educational platform, brought to you by the ever joyful Meaghan Marton. As committed vegan for over 4 years, Meaghan engages with animal lovers of all kinds through the creation of educational initiatives like the Compassion Classroom. Meaghan has created a Meatless Mondays support group for transitional vegans, and hosts vegan potlucks for the community regularly. Beyond her ambitions with The Sweet Life, Meaghan serves as a volunteer coordinator with Charlotte's Freedom Farm - a hobby farm in Essex County that serves as a home for over 60 animals from the farm industry.
To Meaghan, the sweet life isn't just about living life to the fullest, it's also about sharing your kindness and compassion with others.
Want to connect with the Sweet Life of Being Vegan?
We were psyched when Meaghan approached us to collaborate in a Thrifting Give-A-Way. Over the years, thrifiting has become one of our favourite hobbies. There can be such a thrill in finding a hidden treasure that the donor did not see. But, when we broke it down to what we LOVE about thrifting, we all took something a little different out of it.
Why Do You LOVE Thrifting?
Your Trash Is Another's Treasure TOO!
Thrifting can be joyful in both giving and receiving. If you have a gently used item that you're aren't using - donate it! Give it to a friend who will get more use out of it, or drop it off at any one of Windsor's second hand boutiques. Make more room in your life for things you will routinely use and enjoy. Create a sense of community around your love for thrifting by encouraging others to join in with you.
