EVs Are Here To Stay
Let’s make one thing abundantly clear. Electric vehicles (Evs) are the future. They are unequivocally better for the environment, and with the technology constantly advancing, they are performing on par or better than their gas-powered counterparts. I absolutely love exploring LA’s urban jungle in my Nissan Leaf, and with zero emissions, special parking benefits and access to the carpool lane, the perks are hard to beat.
5 Houseplant Hacks You Need to Try Right Now
We're almost there plant parents. The winter season is nearly behind us, and we must endure just a few more weeks before the warmer weather kicks in. If you're like me, you're gearing up for a plant-filled spring and already have a game plan for all of the new plants you're going to add to your collection. However, with great plants comes great responsibility, and I use the winter season to learn and study new techniques that will take my plant parenthood to the next level. Come mid March, I'll be ready to test out what I've learned and I'm always eager to try new strategies that will boost my skills. Some methods might seem unconventional or foreign, but experimentation is the name of the game. Find what works best for you (and your plants) and run with it.
Vegans like Football Too
I get it... football isn't exactly the top sport that comes to mind when you think of veganism, and traditional Super Bowl menus are full of cheese, meat in all of its many forms and other non vegan items. There’s usually not a vegetable in sight, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone out with friends to watch a game and the only option available to me is the carrot + celery combo on the side of the wings. Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for the afterthought, but why can’t there ever be a gametime snack that happens to be fully plant-based?
The year was 2302 and 88% of the Earth’s landmass was underwater. The ice caps had finally melted, and sea level and temperature were in a race to see who could rise the fastest. The remaining colonies lived on floating barges. The rich lived in walled cities made of steel and screens. The very rich fled for the stars many years ago.
Ten Plant Role Models You Need to Know
The pandemic has had major socio cultural impacts on our entire planet, most of it negative, but the silver lining has been the sudden surge in plant parenthood. Houseplant sales have skyrocketed throughout quarantine, seed companies have been sold out for months and garden supplies can’t keep up with the growing demand. People are realizing how important it is to bring nature into our homes and learn to grow their own food, and now we have a bunch of new plant parents out there who are looking for guidance.
“Hi my name is Nick and I am not zero waste but I try my best to be an environmentalist.” Almost everyone: “Hi Nick! Thank you for doing your best for the environment and inspiring others to make eco-conscious steps of their own.”
My 2021 Plant Resolutions
You always knew it was going to be difficult... becoming a plant parent for the first time... but 2020 was borderline traumatic (for many reasons).
Reflections of a Rational Vegan
Before we kick this off let me be clear on a few things: 1. This is NOT vegan indoctrination propaganda 2. I am not going to shy away from reality (don’t worry - no slaughterhouse videos here)
