This is What Plastic Free Living Looks Like!
August 9 & 10, 10am-6pm
We're in Spokane Washington, the greatest place in the Inland NW, presenting hand-made and retail-ready solutions for your plastic-free life!
We're honored and grateful to be a part of Rings & Things 47th Annual Gem & Bead Show as well as the August Rocks Gem Show.
How do we coordinate with jewelry you ask? Quite well I'd say, but seriously, Russ Nobbs, original owner of Rings & Things was also Spokane's greatest recycling advocate. Russ' son, Skylar thinks reHabits mission is a great way to continue his dads legacy and we couldn't be happier.
If you're in the area come out and see us, if you can't make it Like Us on Facebook, we so appreciate your support.

Something to Smile About
What I’m happy about today.
The Ocean CleanUp Project is up and running! After 7 years of work testing, building & rebuilding the garbage collection apparatus, it's actually doing what it set out to do. Congratulations to Boyan Slat
and the whole team of engineers and innovators out there working on this amazing project.
Clean up is only part of the battle. We are still ill-equipped to deal with the material once it is brought ashore. Refusing and reducing your consumption of single use plastic items is still paramount to fixing this enormous problem.
My plastic epiphany, happened in a major grocery store chain in Denver. Looking at all the shelves piled high with plastic bottles, containers of every sort and hundreds of pallets wrapped in plastic, my brain did the math (one store in one city, there are how many other stores just like this in how many other places in the country and around the world) and my heart took a leap. All I could think of is "we don't need all this stuff!" That's when I started reHabit(ing) my own life, reducing my consumption and working to eliminate my plastic footprint.
It's also when I really started waking up to the very real issues concerning plastic pollution and climate change. As a lover of the natural world and all the awe inspiring creatures that we co-habitat with on this planet I had to do my part to be & create change.
In my career as a kitchen & bath designer I started helping friends, family members & clients "green their kitchens and blue their baths" with home-made cleaners and earth friendly products.
What I really do is help people re-frame their concept of wants & needs. It's really all about simplifying, though at first it feels complicated. That's what this site is all about, assisting you through the transition. Take a look around and please, ask me the tough questions. I may not know, but I'll find out!
