THE FUTURE KEPT GIVEAWAY
Since we bought our tiny (but perfectly formed) boat we’ve had to start looking at life on a very small scale. This means that when we buy things, we’d like them to be special and we’d like them to last.
Realistically, this is the way we should always look at what we consume, whether we live on 28ft boat or in 28 roomed manor. We all know that we can’t continue to live in such a throwaway culture- I mean look at the recent ‘plastic bag law’, we all got our heads around that pretty quickly! The tricky things is, it’s not always easy to find ethical, sustainable products that we like. That was one of the reasons we started this blog, to help us find and share sustainable businesses who make and source beautiful items, not just endless anoraks and hemp skirts (although there’s nothing wrong with that!). And we’re glad to say that we’re slowly growing a little log of some of our favourites.
With all this is mind, you can imagine how excited we were when we found out we were going to team up with the lovely Jeska and Dean, of The Future Kept, to celebrate our ’10k Anniversary’ on Instagram. Their online shop is an amazing archive of ethical and sustainable goods, which they hope will “inspire people to think carefully about the items they have in their lives.”
Well, consider us inspired! Their photos alone could have enticed us into buying the whole shop, but when we found out the ethos behind the company, we were in love. H bought my Christmas presents from them (and tried to pass off their beautiful wrapping as his own- seriously, look at how lovely their wrapping is!), and ever since, I have been eyeing up all of the lovely things that they have to share.
As I mentioned, we’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with them, so we’re giving away one of their gorgeous Recycled Wool Blankets, made in Britain. Please feel free to chuckle away at the above photos of myself and Harrison attempting to model them, and take it from us, they are very cosy and very well made and you need one in your life, right now. All you have to do to enter is make sure that you’re following us (@home_and_roam) as well as @thefuturekept, ‘Like’ the giveaway photo and comment, tagging a friend you think might like to enter too. The winner will be chosen in 1 week (Saturday 5th March 12:00 GMT- because, you know, I’d like a lye-in!).
