Spring epitomises new beginnings. As we fully emerge out of the cold dark months of winter, we’re filled with a renewed sense of optimism. Tree branches are replenished with bustling leaves of green. Flowers are sprouting from the ground and the fields are populated with the cutest baby animals. It’s a picturesque time of year that not only commemorates the end of the harshest season, but a reminder of natures resilient, cyclical, beauty.
Many of us feel this transformation in nature reflected back into us. We feel energised and motivated to embrace the longer days. We look forward to arriving to and leaving work in daylight hours and taking respite in green spaces to bask in the sun. Such simple joys are kindly reminded to us in Spring and we can often feel intensified gratitude and appreciation of nature during this time.
At Veo, we’re on a mission to make it easy to show appreciation to nature all year around. We believe that, as consumers, we shouldn’t have to compromise on our choices to embrace a sustainable lifestyle. Nor should we have to sacrifice our values in order to acquire the things that that enhance and enrich or bring comfort and ease into our busy lives.
We believe that quality and sustainability are intrinsically linked, that one cannot exist without the other and so we’ve cherry picked some of our recommended sustainable essentials to cover you this Spring, from fashion, to beauty, to sweet treats. So, you can put your best foot forward and spring into positive eco action, by using your consumer power consciously.
