• Hidden gems in Oslo

    Luckily you don’t have to travel far to take a little break from your daily life. All you need is a staycation! Vacationing in your home city is not only more environmentally-friendly, but it can help you discover some hidden pearls in your hometown, just like we did in Oslo. //Heldigvis trenger man ikke alltid å reise langt for å få et lite avbrekk fra hverdagen. Det kan du få til akkurat der du er, og er kjent som konseptet staycation. Å feriere i egen by er jo også så utrolig mye bedre for miljøet. Oslo er en perle. En staycation her gir rom for å oppdage sider ved byen…

  • Pura vida in Costa Rica

    If you follow us on Instagram, you know that this March we ended up with taking a spontaneous but very much needed trip to the eco-friendly and wellness heaven, Costa Rica. We know that it sucks for the environment to fly and have big goals of stepping down, but we still recognize the value of traveling and the fact that health always comes first. You can read more in this post why we felt the need to go on a trip for the body and mind. Luckily, we are able to combine work and personal purposes – and visit this eco-conscious country with a heart beating for sustainability. We visited two…

  • Where we will spend easter

    Easter is approaching and we are so excited to be heading back to our second home, Portugal. You might wonder why we spend a lot of time there, and that is because our grandmother is Portuguese. Ever since we were born we spent every summer in Portugal and we have a huge family there. This is also where we are able to surf and enjoy more time in the ocean than we do in Oslo. We usually do a lot of beach cleanings in Portugal. Last year we picked up trash at a beach in Peniche together with some cool local girls, and it was heartbreaking how much trash filled…

  • About following your dreams and yoga at the Green Peace Inn

    While traveling the south-west coast of Sri Lanka I stumbled upon a beautiful yoga place in Welligama and instantly decided that I wanted to try it out. When I visited the Green Peace Inn they had just been open for one month, and the place was already buzzing. After meeting the owners, tasting the food and practicing yoga on the rooftop, I quickly understood that this was a magical place. I had a talk with the owners Amy, Martina and Alex to hear more about their life, how they all followed their dream to live in the tropics and do yoga, and their top tips on building a sustainable lifestyle.…

  • The ultimate greenie-guide to Oslo

    If you follow us on Instagram, you may have noticed that we have been running around Oslo lately testing out different cafés, restaurants, and other spots. Together with the coolest Instagram account @oslotips we decided to show you the best eco-friendly places in Oslo. It was a long process, we actually started out with over 50 places and narrowed down the list to our top seven favorites. We wanted to include food, activities, and shops, and in order to really give great recommendations, we also tested out every place, which even involved one of us ending up with red hair (be sure this place is NOT on the list). What is…

  • Glamorous glamping @ Bukubaki eco surf resort

    During the time we were living in Portugal last fall, we planned for a little weekend get-a-way. We were looking for a place that would leave us feeling refreshed, inspired and most importantly, a place that had a low carbon footprint. So we packed our bags, surfboards, and bamboo toothbrushes and headed to Bukubaki in Peniche for a weekend of Glamping! We tried glamping for the first time, a glamorous form of camping (amazing beds inside a tent), together with enjoying surfing, good food, spa and sauna facilities, and exploring what Peniche had to offer. Bukubaki arranged a skate jam Saturday night, which attracted loads of local skaters to come…
