Wishing all of you a peaceful winter and a merry Christmas ❤

I’ve been meaning to share this beautiful “Peaceful Winter” Christmas card illustration by Katharina Rot Illustration with all of you for a while now… and what better time than right now? :) Katharina Rot is a vegan illustrator and animal rights activist from Hamburg, Germany. She illustrates images with messages of love and protecting animals. […]






A town in Japan is on their way to producing ZERO waste

This is so impressive and inspiring! Kamikatsu, Japan is a small town of 1,700 people and ever since 2003 they’ve been working towards their goal of producing absolutely no waste by 2020. They currently separate all their trash into 34 different categories, composting their food waste. They have to wash everything, which is a hassle, […]






How wolves change rivers (aka how nature works it’s magic)

Time for a little break from Lake Como. I watched this video by Sustainable Human when it first came out and I have no idea why I didn’t post it before (actually, now that I think about it, must have been exams and assignments…). I posted it on my Facebook page, but now that I’ve […]






Nature is speaking, are you listening?

When you share petition after petition after petition for years, you hope to one day hear the wonderful news that the change you’ve been waiting and wishing for has finally arrived.

Hope for Orangutans: Kellogg’s committing to sustainable palm oil

Over three years ago, I wrote about two Girl Scouts challenging Kellogg’s to drop palm oil from their Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies in order to protect endangered animals such as the orangutans and tigers, rainforests and tribes in Borneo and Sumatra. It may have seemed like a long time coming, but we finally have […]






Act now to protect the Amazon

I know I’ve mentioned the Amazon rainforest on here multiple times, but to say it is important to our world is an understatement. “The Amazon is the world’s largest tract of tropical rainforest, containing the Earth’s greatest biological reservoir – around 30 percent of all terrestrial species are found there.” (Source: BBC) And that’s not […]






Tag it with these beauties

I love simple features that make something automatically go from bland to extraordinary. These wooden, hand painted chalkboard gift tags do just that to anything they’re attached to. I already was a fan of this type of gift tag, but these take tags to a different level. Since these are hand painted, reusable, and an […]






Why it’s important to protect the Boreal Forest

Today on Care2, I watched this short but very informative video about the Canadian Boreal Forest. I realize that not everyone thinks like me and protecting something because it is part of nature isn’t always descriptive enough. By protecting one place or species, like the Boreal Forest, you are protecting so much more. This video […]
