Meditating Market

Meditating Market We were a family stuck in the routine of single use until we realized the cost it took on our planet & wallet. We opened Meditating Market to simplify sustainability by educating & offering products that build a community of growth for our family & yours.

Since switching to a zero waste lifestyle, I’ve been able to reduce so much of what I buy. Instead of mindlessly consuming, I take time to make sure that I’m bringing items that I truly need or absolutely love and bring joy into my life 😃

Minimalism and zero waste share several core tenants, one of them being BUY LESS. So, I wanted to round up 10+ things that I don’t buy anymore 👇🏻

I’ve fallen in love with one of our products, and I want you to know why.

We recently got our first shipment of Kooshoo hair ties and scrunchies. These are zero waste, biodegradable, plant based, and ethically sourced hair accessories to reduce our impact on beautiful Mother Nature.

The couple behind this brand says, “We are accountable for the life cycle of our products from start to finish- from the earth and back to the earth. Our consumption as a species has an impact, both positive and negative. We want to be part of the change. We are here to embody a cultural shift in sustainable living - making better things in a better way.”

They go on to explain how important it is for products to last- but not in a landfill. “Hair. Care.”

It was easy for us to fall in love with their vision. I tested the products myself and I am very happy to say that the whole experience working with this brand has been positive. It’s a great, long lasting product that actually keeps my long hair in place all day long. Plus I am inspired by how hands are they are in insuring fair wages and ethical sourcing of materials.

“Consumers can push back with their voices and choices… Voting with your dollars for the future you wish to see will resonate and will create change on a greater scale.”

I’m at the shop until 6 today and I’d love to tell you more about Kooshoo and share these hair accessories with you! Being a conscious consumer looks good 😍

We spent an hour picking up trash in the creek at Tyndall Park for our Earth Week clean up project. We found tadpoles and fish swimming in and around soccer cleats, batteries, bottles, cans, plastic bags, straws, styrofoam, old piping, electrical cords, underwear, socks and so much more junk! It was a great lesson for our four year old to see nature being smothered by humans’ trash. What an eye opener!! 🗑🌱🌎💚 #sustainabilitysimplified #bethevillage #communitycleanup

🧘‍♀️ Yoga this morning was complete with a sound bath and it was so chill! Thank you to everyone who came out to stretch and connect with the breath. It’s a dream to see you gather out front to meditate in the sunshine.

Yoga at the Station! Follow Natural State Namaste and Meditating Market for all the upcoming yoga dates and times.
When Arkansas mom Robyn Cisar wanted to cut down food waste and single-use plastics in her own home, she found it surprisingly difficult. Now, she's opened a store that aims to make #sustainableshopping and living so easy anyone can do it. Take a tour of the Meditating Market.
I stopped today on Benton, AR to do a story on Meditating Market. I was educated on several simple things I can do to produce less waste. Look for this story coming soon on Pattrn. Here is a little taste.
This truly is a huge deal. Normally $15.25 each, which is already a great deal, but we are knocking of 1/3 of that and selling them for $10 each if you buy 3 packs. We say 3 months, but that's only if you do 1 load as day as these are 32 load packs. This deal is good for online orders too! You don't want to miss it. Happy shopping everyone. www.meditatingmarket.com
