Welcome to HippieandHeart.com! I’m Carly, the founder! : )

When I’m not going on bike rides through Chicago, traveling, listening to podcasts, or reading a book, I share on HippieandHeart.com brands and retailers that are environmentally and socially conscious. I’m a much different consumer than I was just a few years ago. I used to spend much of my time shopping at fast fashion retailers, without any thought about how my purchases were affecting the planet and the people making my clothes. Thankfully, while studying the fashion industry in college, I learned from experts about its devastating consequences. I had no idea that the fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope we get to talk soon about your conscious consumer journey and the brands you love!

With a lot of heart,
