2019 was the year of sustainability in the fashion industry, and 2020 looks to be no different. Episode 20 brings us Nita and Lisa from St. Mary Advocates, a local thrift shop that has been open for 50+ years and donates all of its proceeds {around $40K per year} to local and national charities, like the American Legion, St. Jude’s, and Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps.

Our guests share all about their thrift shop in Hoboken, PLUS all the local thrift shops you must visit in Hudson County, how and where to donate your clothing and furniture locally, other ways to practice sustainability, and the brands that are actually doing “good” in the world to support.

Later in our mini self-care segment, Sara of House of Healer talks about Reiki Master Asha Surti and what a Reiki session with her is like. Spoiler: it’s heaven and will help in ways you may not have imagined!

Plus get some local Hoboken and Jersey City tidbits {aka there are a TON of new spots opening in 2020, and we’re spilling the tea aka local Hudson County news}.

We wrap the episode with a Hudson Hero + Hudson Zero, a very necessary getaway that is perfect for the winter, and our non-profit of the week and hidden gem.
