  • How can I help Ukraine?

    War and civil unrest disproportionately affects women, children and disabled people. This is applicable to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, in fact, the United Nations have admitted that black and brown refugees have also faced discriminatioN whilst managing the displacement from their homes. War reveals the cruelty and depth of love within humans. So even as we work out the questions within our minds, here are some ways to show support.

  • Have a drink, plant some trees!

    Research carried out by the National Academy of Sciences, has concluded that extreme climate changes in the tropics could make it more difficult for many children to attain a secondary school education and will impose “new barriers on children’s learning” in the years to come. So that is why we, here at Setovilla, are dedicated to offsetting our carbon footprint as much as possible.
  • Sharon’s rose: an ancient gem with a new hype

    But, here at Setovilla, Hibiscus is more than just an ingredient, it’s a loving memory and reminder of my childhood. Growing up in Nigeria, I would spend my lunch money on hawkers who stood outside of the school gates selling homemade Hibiscus infusions in wheelbarrows. Creating their own, unique recipes at home, they would sell them proudly to my friends and I in used plastic bottles. For the hawkers, selling their concoctions in pre-used plastic bottles must have been an economical choice, however, now I consider them to be innovative recycling champions. For us kids, we were not bothered by fancy brands or pretty aesthetics, we were just excited to enjoy each refreshing mouthful in the cool shade after a busy day at school.
