Last month, Pilates Instructor, Cat Proudfoot, set off on an adventure to Everest Base Camp. We couldn't wait to hear all about her incredible expedition!
I had climbed Kilimanjaro for charity a few years back and a promise to a friend to do Everest Base Camp had been bought up at dinner one too many times when we finally booked last year, partners in tow.
Trekking to Everest base camp wasn’t a decision I made lightly. It has become commercialised over recent years, however, once you see what the boost in tourism is doing for locals, providing jobs and bringing in income you see that they all just want to be working in the mountains. The Sherpas, ours were only in their 20’s, had great English skills and knew that to help us would mean a worldly tip to them. Our guides were working back to back trips to make sure their children had a fair shot in life.

We know there’s a lot going on at the moment and everyone feels a little lost in all the uncertainty. With the situation and guidance changing every day, we - as a small business - have a lot to think about, including how we can continue to provide our services for our customers and our artisans.
As a sustainable business, we try our best to be as transparent as possible, especially concerning our supply chain. We know all of our artisans personally and have spent a long time forging friendships and working relationships together. Many of our small scale producers rely on our trade as their main source of income, shopping small has a direct impact on these communities. The same can be said for all small businesses, buying their products or using their services has a direct impact on the owners, their families and the groups of people that they work with.
