Braiding Sweetgrass: Our (Timeless!) Sustainable Book Club Pick for March

Braiding Sweetgrass: Our (Timeless!) Sustainable Book Club Pick for March

This article is part of our "Round Ups" series, where we share things that inspire us, guide us, or are just really cool.

In January we kicked off a new tradition, and we picked up Climate Justice by Mary Robinson (former President of Ireland and UN climate leader), and dug deeper into it. By February, when we cracked open All We Can Save, we were picking up steam-- we shared more of our favorite parts on Instagram, and started seeing folks tag us as they got their copies. There's truly nothing quite as delicious as all learning and growing and reading together, and we don't see ourselves stopping anytime soon. 

It's not a coincidence that all of the books we've read so far were penned by women and women of color. While it's not a hard and fast book club rule of ours, we find ourselves gravitating towards those stories, and they feel aligned with our ethos, goals, mission and vibes as a company. White dudes definitely get enough play in the climate space as is. 

Our pick this month is anything but "climate bro" fodder-- it's Braiding Sweetgrass, by Robin Kimmerer. We're excited to return to Indigenous wisdom, knowledge, and tutelage. 

We hope you'll join us, and we'll keep sharing our favorite parts on social. Comment, tag us, or shoot us a note or DM if you join us-- whether you're starting from the beginning with January's book or jumping in at March. No matter your order of operations, we're glad you're here.
