Everyday, Forage and Sustain is "helping you live your best sustainable life" and isn't that what we all need? To celebrate Earth Day, we're sharing with you the people who help us the most and inspire us to always take that extra step towards an eco-friendly lifestyle.
Behind the inspiring Forage and Sustain is Arti Jalan, and we asked her a few questions to get to know the person behind all of this:
- Where abouts do you currently call home?
After having lived in 3 different countries, I've finally settled down in Toronto, which is where I was born and raised :)
- What’s your favourite part of having such a loyal following?
I love the community I've built and the relationships I have within it. It's so special to be able to connect with people from all over the world who are like-minded, and have the same interests and vibe as you!
- Who’s your favourite artist and why? (Musician, painter, designer, anyone!)
This is such a hard one, as there are so many! Van Gogh has always held my interest, but in modern times, I've been quite taken by Ai Wei Wei's politically centred art, as well as CJ Hendry who completely amazes me! They're all so different from each other, but each technique and approach is so layered and complex.
- Your favourite city in the world?
Another hard one! I seem to have trouble thinking in absolutes, so I'll give a few of my favourites - Paris, Shanghai, Rome and Matera
- How about your favourite beach?
Probably Nusa Lembongan in Indonesia :) The water is so unbelievably blue!
- 5 things you can’t live without… go!
My iPhone, a good book, pain au chocolat, a really good moisturizer, and creative expression!
- What is your favourite quote?
"Enlightenment is when a wave realizes it is the ocean." - Thich Nhat Hanh
- What is your best Eco Tip to share with others?
Instead of trying to do it all and be zero-waste, first introduce consciousness into your realm. It can be easy to buy all the green living things that we feel we need in order to make change, but the first step is changing our mindset and understanding why. Ask questions, dig deep, and do your research. Sustainability is a lifestyle change and should come with personal transformation, not just cute bamboo cutlery and reusable bags.
- If you could say one thing to our Mother Earth, what would it be?
Mama, your resilience is unfathomable...but I promise, we'll do better.
- What’s one cause that you would want people to rally behind and why?
It's not so much a cause as it is a movement. I want to create a generation of change makers and advocates for the earth and social equality.. I want people to care, to really care, and to see how we are all connected. There is no "you" or "I" - it is only "us" and we need to rally together in literally every aspect of life!

As we’re doing our best to keep ourselves educated and updated on the Black Lives Matter movement, one of our favourite ways to do so is to listen to podcasts. We’ve been loving learning from teachers, historians, and just regular people experiencing racism and issues we don’t even know about.
As we’re launchingour new Signet Rings, why not take the time to learn more about this timeless piece of jewellery?
First and foremost, signet rings represent a wide range of personalized ring, usually representing family symbols, signs, monograms and more. They were used to represent someone’s identity and they were traditionally used to sign into melted wax. How amazing is that?! A unique representation of someone’s signature right on their finger. In that sense, signet rings were extremely meaningful.
As much as I would love to take credit for this delicious morsel of goodness I'm about to share with you, I can not. This recipe was sent to me from a friend as I begun a journey of ridding Gluten from my life.... and this guy has been an absolute saviour! For when you CBF cooking, for when you just want 'toast' for dinner, for when you're fighting every craving for a hearty 'carb-a-liscious' meal when your GF and for when you just want to wake up and not eat cereal. Introducing to you, what has deemed to be named 'Life-Changing' Loaf...
Our necklaces come in a variety of lengths from 18" to 23". Our 18" chain necklace is made from our Fine Chain with the 20" and 23" length chains in our 'Everyday' Chain. These are the same chain design, just slightly heavier in weight for the longer lengths. For a rough guide (as we all have different, amazing bodies) the 23" chain sits around or just above your nipple line...
We're big fans of layering necklaces and I'm pretty sure you are too. All of our chains are adjustable in length by 2" to make sure you can style your layers to perfection and mix them up with other pieces in your jewellery wardrobe.
Although all necklaces are adjustable, for the perfect layered look we suggest that you purchase your necklaces on different length chains. This way you get to see the beauty of both pendants and there's less chance of scratching! We also personally like wearing the smallest pendant on the shorter length and the larger heavier pendants longer. That's just our personal choice though, we're all awesome & individual humans and ultimately you get to decide how you style your pieces!
Below is a little guide of some of our favourite pieces layered and their lengths:
|SALLY T-SHIRT MEASUREMENTS||SMALL (Size 6-10)||MEDIUM (Size 10-14||LARGE (Size 14-16)|
|CLASSIC T-SHIRT MEASUREMENTS||SMALL (Size 6-10)||MEDIUM (Size 10-14||LARGE (Size 14-16)|
It is important to note that different countries have different sizing methods.
Most of the world goes by number sizing which is the easiest and most accurate.
Because we sell our jewellery all over the world, we have decided to stick with number sizing and have put together the below chart to help you out. The most common size for ladies is a size 7 and size 10 for man. If you are unsure of your size you can measure the inner diameter of one of your own rings and refer to the below measurements.
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further issues.
Please also note that if you are ordering a wide band ring, its usually a good idea to go up a size.
Size 6 = Ring Sizes L, M, N. Inner Diameter measures 16.5mm
Size 7 = Ring Sizes N, O, P. Inner Diameter measures 17.3mm
Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, R. Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm
Size 9 = Ring Sizes R, S, T. Inner Diameter measures 18.9mm
If you require a ring in a different size in any of the designs offered, please send us an email here and we will see what our clever silversmiths can do for you.
Luna & Rose chain bracelets also have a 2" adjustable chain length with a clasp. Therefore they have two/three size options for you. They sit at a total circumference of approx 16cm & 17.5cm
