A big shout out to The Sanctuarian for inviting The Savvy Elephant onto their Facebook live event last week. The Savvy Elephant co-founders Lori Falk and Lynn Horwitz were able to say in their own words what prompted them to start the sustainable furniture and home décor online marketplace, what sustainable means to them and ways for anyone to get started living a sustainable life.
We could not think of a better partner than Jocelynn Flowers owner of J. Flowers Organizing. Jocelynn's passion for organization and decluttering extends beyond the physical with an emphasis on alleviating stress and anxiety for the mind, soul and home.
