Winter Luxuries to keep your Home Cozy & Cruelty-Free this Season

Okay so I almost had a breakdown while Christmas shopping for people last night. I never understood why people get stressed during the holidays - I love finding unique gifts for and spending time with loved ones- but last night, while squeezing my way through overcrowded stores selling overpriced products most likely made from sweatshops, I [...]

Winter is Coming but Our Earth is Still Melting – Wisdom from a Sadhu

Winter is Coming but Our Earth is Still Melting – Wisdom from a Sadhu

December 1. Today I turned on the radio and heard one of the hosts rave about the weather. Considering how winter is right around the corner, it's relatively warm outside. Too warm. It's more comfortable than experiencing the bitterness of winter, but I hate experiencing this kind of weather in December. Whether you believe that [...]

Fast Fashion is Destroying Lives and the Planet – but there are Sustainable Ways to Shop

Fast Fashion is Destroying Lives and the Planet – but there are Sustainable Ways to Shop

Before 2015, I didn't think much about the way I shopped. I would see "Made in Bangladesh" or some other seemingly far-away land printed on my clothing without thinking twice about it. It appeared that all of America's clothes and products were produced in other countries these days- there was no avoiding it. Or so [...]
