Not all heroes wear capes - - - some carry reusable bags + metal straws.
We believe that one person can inspire change + it’s the everyday small decision that truly make a difference. Not only is being environmentally conscious better for all of us but it can also be easier on the wallet. Here are five very easy ways that you can make a conscious effort to make planet earth a better place.
By carpooling just twice a week, 1,600 pounds of greenhouse gases can be kept out of the air each year + taking the HOV lane can cut your commute time down by as much as half. And who knows? Maybe you’ll make a new friend or two along the way!
It's estimated that we use over 500 million plastic straws a day + most of those end up in our oceans, polluting the water and killing marine life. And if you plan on diving deeper into how plastic straws can hurt marine life, have some tissue on hand. The pictures alone will break your heart.

Every time you shave minutes off your use of hot water, you also save energy and keep dollars in your pocket. Save some $$$ + the world at the same time.
Women's hat sizes are fairly intuitive. The average women's head size measures around 57cm. If you are unsure of your hat size the Gigi Pip small/medium hat would be the best starting point. The small/medium hat size is made to fit 57cm + can be adjusted down to 55cm. If you know you have a slightly larger head go with the 59cm size. As far as Gigi Pip sizing goes this is a medium/large, made to fit a 59cm head size + then can be adjusted down to 57cm. The largest size Gigi Pip offers is a 61 cm, labeled as an XL, like our other sizes the 61 can be sized down to 59 cm. For women who feel they have a slightly smaller head than normal we recommend an XS which begins at 55cm + can be sized down to 53 cm. In select styles we offer kids sizing which begins at 53 cm + can be adjusted to 51 cm.
In short- the most common hat size is a S/M (57cm). While this is the most common hat size, remember that properly sizing your Gigi Pip hat will ensure the best fit.
There are two primary methods of measuring your hat size + are based on the style in which you wear your hat. You will need to take both measurements (shown below) + then use the larger of the two measurements to determine your hat size. Once you've received your hat, you can decide how you would like to wear it + adjust your hat size accordingly.
TIP: If you don't have a textile measuring tape, use a string or piece of yarn to measure the distance around your head. After you have marked the yarn around your head, lay it out flat on the ground or table + measure the straightened out piece of yarn with a measuring stick or regular measuring tape.

Hat Sizing Tape Instructions
Hat sizing tape is an additional option for tightening the fit of your hat. Place the foam tape on the inside of your hat, behind the sweatband, with the sticky side facing towards the hat wall. Wrap the tape completely around the hat for maximum size decrease or cut tape length in half for a more moderate decrease. Size to fit prior to removing the adhesive cover. Once the fit is correct, remove the adhesive cover, press firmly into place, and wa-lah.
