10 terms to start your cnscs_vocab

Welcome to the first Sustainability School article!

So, for our first article, we thought we would share ten terms to start your cnscs_ vocab. We hope that these…

Style: DIY Beaded Bag

In our recent cnscs_ eye candy shoot, you may have spotted a beaded bag. Masego has two (which she adores) and they are both thrifted vintage bags. After crushing on them for ages, I decided that I wanted one too. I find working with my hands very cathartic, and I’m always up for a good…
