Rent a party-perfect tablescape from The Box/d Society

Perhaps one of the more obvious calling cards of becoming a 'proper' adult is when you start to host dinner parties.

Woefully, this can also be the most time-consuming and difficult aspect to perfect – and that's where The Box/d Society comes in. This fresh-faced company is taking the stress out of party planning with gatho-ready tablescapes delivered straight to your door. more

Plastic not-so-fantastic – ways to help you reduce your plastic reliance this July

Plastic has emerged as one of the greatest man-made environmental disasters of our time. Synthetic pliable polymers made from petrol have transformed the way we live – it's cheap to produce and long-lasting. Unfortunately for planet Earth, it is those very attributes that have cursed the eco-system as nearly every single piece of plastic ever created still exists in some form today. It has infiltrated every aspect of modern life – from the devices we are using to bring you this article to the cars we drive, the bottles that house our shampoos and cleaning products to the cling film that is keeping your lunch fresh in the fridge – it's all plastic and it will outlive you by a few hundred years. In a perfect world we would all pledge to go plastic-free for good, however, the reality is that it may not be possible to do all at once. Anne Marie Bonneau aka The Zero Waste Chef said it… more

The brand is here to save you from the status quo with a stunning range of pretty picnic rugs, cooler bags and miscellaneous goodies. more

David Jones launches Mindfully Made so you can shop sustainably

It is widely understood that fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world (the first is oil, just in case you were wondering) but what isn't as straight forward is where or how to start your conscious shopping journey. One of the reasons for this is that the term 'sustainable fashion' is inherently loaded and to borrow from the beloved green ogre Shrek, it's like an onion in that there are many layers. To help you navigate the minefield, retailer David Jones has joined the likes of Net-A-Porter and The Iconic to launch a platform dedicated to share the stories behind conscious brands and makers to make it easier than ever to shop better. more

Ditch single-use sanitary items in favour of TOM Organic’s eco-friendly and reusable period products

Periods! Okay, now that we've given the gents who accidentally clicked on this story enough time to backtrack hastily, let's talk. Monthly visits from Aunt Flo are largely unavoidable and up until now, it's meant schlepping to the chemist or supermarket to replenish supplies of pads and/or tampons that are ultimately destined for landfill (because we all know flushing is bad). Here's the thing, according to The Fashion Advocate, the average Australian woman uses up to 12,000 disposable pads, liners and tampons in her lifetime, which is a lot considering there are around 12.6-million females in Australia. Thankfully, there's an eco-friendly alternative. Ladies, say hello to TOM Organic's reusable period cup and underwear. more

Ruff stuff – get canine crafty with a DIY bowtie dog-collar kit

If you're a dedicated dog parent with a passion for fashion, then it's safe to say your four-legged friend probably has a winter wardrobe that rivals Mariah's.

Enter dog-accessory label Moo+Twig, which is slinging fully customised bowtie dog-collar kits so you can channel your inner designer.
