She’s alive, beautiful, home… and she’s hurting

This is one of the most powerful videos I’ve ever seen. My friend Aubree shared it with me yesterday and I knew I had to share it with as many people as I possibly could, because it is for every single one of you. The Earth is our home and we need to start paying […]






A wallet that gives and looks good

Not only do these wallets from Holstee look vibrant and fantastic, they help people and the planet, too! The originals were already awesome, but now they’re even brighter. They’re upcycled, fair trade, and vegan. Holstee teamed up with Conserve India who collect plastic bags around Delhi, India and turn them into fashion like these functional […]






Move, learn, eat: a moving little video series

They were ambushed by gunmen. This was no […]

Simple shoes for a happy planet

I found out about Simple Shoes when looking for eco-friendly products on dELiA*s. I not only found eco-friendly shoes, but ones that had “vegan” in the title with the slogan “Going Vegan never looked so good!” They’re the ones I’ve featured below. Unfortunately, they’re no longer available, but I still wanted to know more about […]






It’s easy being green with so many clothing choices

There are so many greenwashing options out there right now that it’s hard to find clothing that not only has a green message on it, but follows that message as well.
