  1. What an interesting read! I particularly like the sound of 58 and Co. initiative of used plastic taken from the ocean to resurface their front yard as well as Laura Sevenus Swimming Tuition use of the UV light sanitisation system. A special mention to Displaced Fragrances; their whole ethic sounds fantastic and makes me want to go and buy some Candles from them!
