Sea Stars in the Big Blue

Sea Stars in the Big Blue

In August of 2023 I had the privilege of traveling to Fiji for my honeymoon (postponed from 2020). I didn’t know much about Fiji except that I really wanted to swim with manta rays, and Fiji has them, along with being known for some of the most robust coral reefs on Earth. (The view from our room) The trip had a rough start; our luggage was left behind in San Francisco so for two days I was stressing. On the first night, one of my teeth broke in half - it didn’t hurt but there was this ambient sense of...

Protect Our Home for the Holidays! Gifts that Give Back

Hi friends! I’m Adalie, the retail associate for Cinder+ Salt! The Holidays are coming up and we all have a lot on our minds. Shopping for deals, getting the perfect present for that special someone, traveling to family and friends, etc. As much as I would love to say that I’m different and not impacted by the upcoming festivities, I’m not and I would be a BIG liar. I love the winter season and all that comes with it. Even the piercing cold weather. BUT…this time of year can be challenging for the planet.
