Rêve en vert

From February until July 2016 I was the Editorial Intern at Rêve En Vert. This meant that I was responsible for the Editorial Page of the website. Rêve En Vert is a sustainable luxury e-commerce platform (reve-en-vert.com). It was started out of the conviction that sustainable fashion can be luxurious and stylish. The website is, besides a place for people to buy beautiful sustainable and ethical clothing, an educational platform.

earth hour

Once a year a wave of darkness sweeps over the globe for a very bright cause: Earth Hour. 8:30 local time marks the moment that people are encouraged to turn off their electrical devices and take a moment to think over their electricity usage. A perfect hour to get out some candles and enjoy real-life friends (instead of 'social' digital ones).
