Like Minded Series- Dona Bela SHREDS

The Council for Textile Recycling estimates that the US generates an incredible 25 billion pounds of textile waste a year. Only 15% of that gets donated or recycled through organizations like Goodwill or Planet Aid.

That leaves about 85% that goes directly into our landfills. This week's Like Minded feature is actively working to solve this issue. 

Dona Bela SHREDS upcycles fabric remnants into one-of-a-kind creations, ​designing beautiful neckwear and ​headwear that stand out for their style and substance. These accessories are fun and fashionable, whether you’re wearing jeans and a t-shirt or a casual dress but their real beauty just may be how they impact the environment.

When clothing manufacturers finish making a season’s line, they often have leftover fabric. Dona Bela SHREDS, based in Des Moines, IA brings new life to this new, unused fabric and creates fashion accessories that highlight comfort, fashion and individuality. 

The company also donates a portion of every sale to a charity that aligns with their values. When it comes to living mindfully, Dona Bela gets our Like Minded seal of approval!

Minding Your Stress

We all encounter stress on a daily basis: from errands that need to get done, to meetings with other people, to social media that demands our attention, our lives are filled with encounters and tasks that demand energy from us. Mindfulness asks us to focus on turning stress to eustress, or positive stress, whenever possible, and holding space for the negative when we can’t.
