I guess it’s time to introduce myself! 👋🏽 My name is Cheri and I am a California native, born and raised in the pine trees of Paradise. My journey has taken me from the island of Kauai to the jungles of Perú and soooooo many places in between (check out my other profile @herbanmyth for travel pics!). I’m a dirt lover and a tree hugger and a medicine woman. I’ve been making herbal medicine and natural skin care for 20 years now. Mama Earth keeps me inspired and healthy and I hope to share a little bit of this love with you! You can find all my goodies at HerbanMythBotanicals.com or if you’re lucky enough to live in Nor-Cal I’m not too hard to track down. May the Earth be with you! 🌎🌿💚

Thanks for following and liking my posts. It means a lot. I have been trying to find a litter picker in every state and country to follow on Instagram. I don't love trash but I do love all the like-minded individuals who try to make the world a better place.
The temperature is dropping, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay inside. Now is the time to make sure you’re ready to keep the adventure going with exactly the right kit! The Rab Ascent Women’s Jacket is one that Up and Under have been selling well for a number of years and we have selected it as it feels lovely and soft on, providing a fit that suits a large proportion of our customers.
It works well for cold weather dog walking, standing watching sport, car camping and general cold weather wear. However, it also has a good balance of warmth for weight, pack-size and cost for use on one off trips where someone else will be portering your kit, such as Kilimanjaro, or for use in and around tea houses on a Himalayan or Andean group trek, where normal layered clothing just isn’t warm enough.
Let’s get techy:
-Pertex Endurance is highly water-resistant and is treated with a durable water repellent finish, so you won’t be too out of luck if it does start to rain. This jacket is windproof, breathable, and lightweight - Stuffed with 650 fill power ethically sourced European duck down. The down is also fluorocarbon free Hydrophobic, developed in conjunction with Nikwax. What’s so special about hydrophobic down? LOTS actually - it absorbs less water, it dries faster, and most importantly it retains loft, keeping you warm even when wet.
This jacket, paired with a merino wool base layer, will be my “go to” outfit this winter between high intensity activities
We believe that if you teach your children the comfort found in the ocean at a young age then they will become allies in protecting it later in life. Team rider @kalannijoyce is gearing up to change the world but for now she’s taking it one wave at a time 😊 📸 @luisabrimble
Hawking's Point... Our regular Wednesday social activity. We take a scenic stroll up to this phenomenal look out, guided by our friendly staff. Spot native animals, birds and walk through the changing rock formations that have evolved over thousands of years, to be greeted by the setting sun throwing it's spectacular glow over Picnic Bay jetty. 📷 @photobohemian
It's awful and grey now in the Southern Finland. All the snow has melted and I'm feeling super bad (been having some nasty vertigo for over a week now), so I gotta post an old plogging pic from the beautiful autumn to feel a bit less miserable. Sunshine, come and heal me 💖
One hour walk
With my love in the mountains.
Isn't it romantic
To enjoy nature's beauty together?
Wouldn't it be better
If this walk didn't include all these pieces of trash? 🌏🥀💜🗑️🚮🌲💚 ☀️...................... 1x water bottle
1x plastic bag
1x beer bottle
1x broken plastic pen
1x cigarette butts
1x metal tire piece
1x paper wrapping
2x coffee cups plus lids
1x gummy wrapper
We recently visited the Shoalhaven area in NSW and explored the beautiful coastline. The sand doesn’t get much whiter in all of Australia! There is also a strong community around ocean conservation here. Most cafes encourage reusable coffee cups and if you’re taking food away its provided in cardboard containers removing the need for single use plastic. With environmentalist @iamlaurawells and Surfrider Foundation Ambassador @stellacrick with us on this adventure we were in perfect company to talk about the issues our oceans face and what we can do as individuals and businesses to help. We’re starting by using recycled plastic bottles in 94% of our swimwear range this summer #ForCleanOceans and we have big plans moving forward ♻️💦 📸 @luisabrimble
Always take a moment to check conditions before paddling into the surf this summer. Check where sweeps and rips may be forming as these can make your paddle out easy or very difficult. The same applies for swimmers and for more information speak to a surf lifesaving professional at your local beach or contact @slsaustralia 🌊
probably the most intense #wildlife experience i've had so far. we took the quite new S147 gravel road in @krugernationalpark for the third time in a row already, when @mathias_koczy suddenly spotted the dead #impala in the dry riverbed. we waited until this #leopard mum and her cub decided to interrupted their morning nap and stayed for more than three and a half hours watching them feast, rest and cuddle. unbelievable morning! more footage to come.
Thank you so much Spar for this wonderful treat for me to fish out of the water today 😣. I really enjoyed having to wade into freezing water to remove your trash from our beaches.
Perhaps other forms of promotion would be more suitable... I am pretty sure we can all live without balloons... I genuinely don't think anyone would care if they didn't have a Spar balloon in their life! 🙄🐚🐠🐟🐾
