"Conscious Beyond Convenience"
BE CHANGE

Removing yourself from the constructs of society, entering a place of isolation, and observing the natural world can foster a perspective that drives one to recognize the flaws of our daily consumption patterns. We encourage you to get out and take it upon yourself to make whatever sacrifices you find reasonable in an effort to reduce your physical impact on this planet. Those small shifts may ripple into your networks and collectively we can lead ourselves to a better future. There is no good reason not to try, give it a go…🌎 #OWNIt #KeepItClean #LeaveYourPrintsNotYourTrash #ConsciousBeyondConvenience 📷by @gold_chaynes

11 billion tons of glacial ice melt due to our “warming environment”. Human influence, greenhouse effects, gas emissions and aerosols are studied to be the main perpetrators. So what can we do? How about we find a balance of both, respect and enjoyment? Think of your daily impact as a vote for or against the planet. Everyone’s vote matters. The little things add up and yes you can make a difference. ~ Influence others by limiting your single use items especially plastics, research about diet, carpool when you can, thrift stores for clothes, or buy clothes with lifetime warranties, eat local and or grow your own food, compost and so much more! @kaitlyntolinproductions

Tips and tricks for the minimalist Nomad: • Reusable cloth bags • Silicone baggies • Silverware • Towel • Sponge • Camp Stove • DIY toothpaste/deodorant • Snacks in bulk for the road • Research hostels, bulk food stores, farmers markets and local restaurants. 4,228 miles away from San Luis Obispo we landed on the island of ice. The urge for uncharted journeys is vital in the human connection with nature. Through generations we slowly began to lose that sense of connection as the amenities and simplicities of modern society became an every day comfort. I believe it’s time to go back to the basics to minimize your footprint while at home and on the road. Because every little bit does matter, and we must start now. @kaitlyntolinproductions

November 17-19💦 We’re excited to be in the process of becoming a formal non-profit and stoked to be a guest at the @pismobeachopen this weekend. It will be a #DeepBlueEvent which pushes for sustainability. Our booth will be hosting a refill station with water donated from Culligan so bring your canteen’s and if you slip up we will still have a solid alternative with cups provided by @reducereusegrow so plants will be planted for every cup served. Perks: We’ll be raffling off a $500 value for a custom shaped @wahlboards and as we transition away from apparel and begin to focus on community outreach all of our remaining inventory will be on sale so come get a deal. It’s rad to have the @wsl.qs come to our community and we’re happy to be a presence. #PismoBeachOpen #OWNit #KeepItClean #ConsciousBeyondConvenience

Happy Sunday y’all. #5 on the 7 Wonders of D-Bob’s World list is the northern lights of Iceland. At the turn of 2013 I circumnavigated the country with Mr. Iceland himself @chrisburkard. Iceland winters are dark (10am sunrise, 3pm sunset) so we spent our nights marveling at the dancing and transfixing aurora borealis. Iceland itself is a spectacle of roadside attractions and its no wonder so many people are drawn to explore its countryside. – @dbob Insta takeover.

We’re stoked to announce that the #StrawsUponRequest Campaign we launched last July has been finalized in the City of SLO & will be in effect March 1. This does not ban the item, but transitions to a system reliant on consumer demand. This slight shift is easily replicable by other cities and if scaled out can reduce a lot of avoidable waste heading to our landfills. More importantly may it serve as a trigger point reminding us that there are many single-use items we consume regularly that we as individuals can aim to reduce our usage of. A big thanks to all of you that helped in one way or another. It’s a great demonstration that as individuals and as a collective we can make a difference; one step at a time. #ConsciousBeyondConvenience #KeepItClean #OWNit
