Solemates, With People Footwear

It’s obvious things have been rather slow and quiet around here lately, so it took a little bit before taking on any more partnerships and collaborations but I’m excited to have this one underway, to share a modern minded company and include another local favourite to my Responsible Brands Series. People, meet People Footwear.

10 Children’s Book With Ethnic Diversity

I’ve been asked a couple times now if I intentionally choose books “of colour” for Rheo or where I find them, and while part of my answer is no (I choose books that represent him in any way: skin colour, crazy hair, adventurous spirits, frequent travels and so on) also HELL YEAH I DO! Majority of book selections on the shelves just about anywhere, favour one grouping. I’m a big advocate for the idea that representation plays a crucial role in children growing up with self love and understanding, so I make the extra effort to ensure he grows up on various types of media, inclusive of diversity (especially relatable to himself). Looking for some suggestions? I’ve rounded up a few of our personal favourites with characters of colour.
