Flying High!

Although travel has changed dramatically since Covid19, we can see a time when people will gravitate back towards flying. Let's hope, we all think twice about unnecessary trips and in the new age of zoom and video conferencing, we are a little more reflective about whether we really need to jump onto a plane.   Leio McLaren via Unsplash   We love exploring our big country, we love [...]

We all know about the importance of considering the environmental impact of our personal travel habits. One thing we love to see is commercial travel industry entities doing their part too. Hobart Airport is one such company who’s getting on board. This year they have purchased 365 native plants (plus an extra 29, because it’s a leap year - how lovely is that!) for planting at the Polonia Bridge Park [...]

From Alex & Stefan to you!

    Ah, the bonbonniere question. To go old-school with the almonds or bulk buy red jelly beans. To custom print that shot glass or wrap a tiny cactus in a ribbon. It’s a tough one. Bonbonniere were originally intended to realistically represent the couple’s life together: sweetness (sugar coating) balancing out life’s inevitable bitterness (almond). It’s cute. We get it. But today’s couples are forging new traditions for a [...]

In her poem When I am among the trees, beloved nature poet Mary Oliver spoke of trees giving off ‘hints of gladness’. Could anything be more perfect? The list of things trees do for us and for the earth is long indeed, and perhaps the simple fact that we find joy in being around them gets overlooked sometimes. But when we gift a tree to someone we love, part of [...]

Trees for you!

In case you hadn’t noticed, Christmas seems to be approaching. There is an air of well-intentioned panic in the air, as swarms of people race around to purchase material goods for their loved ones, hoping that this year, the candlestick/photoframe/novelty mug won’t end up in an op-shop three weeks later. Gifting can be a tricky business, both on a personal and an ethical level.     But there is a [...]

Pomegranate Global emphasises practical solutions to real-life problems, so it’s perhaps not surprising that Ailsa walks the talk when it comes to her own business practices.
