Sustainability Requires Social Equity and Celebrating Hispanic Heritage is Important

Sustainability Requires Social Equity and Celebrating Hispanic Heritage is Important

There is no sustainability without social equity. In order to preserve all of nature's wonders we have to respect our surroundings, not just the natural resources provided by our glorious Earth, but all people and cultures found around the world. 

Last month we wrote about the importance of education equity and gender equity. Today we want to share an incredible 30 day virtual event hosted by WAFI Revolución is celebrating Hispanic Heritage month with a wide variety of exciting discussion panels, people spotlights and articles highlighting the excellence of Latin culture through a range of entertainment platforms.  Check out the full schedule of events taking place Sept. 15 - Oct. 15th.

“The Latin Community is extremely diverse, Revolucíon looks to showcase that diversity and unity through its interviews, panels, articles and more; because now more than ever representation matters”

The Savvy Elephant thinks diversity is essential to sustainable living. Our suppliers produce products preserving heritage skills, patterns and materials to celebrate their culture and we bring these unique, eco-friendly, ethically crafted furniture and accessories into your home.
