I Was A Vegan Until I Ate An Egg
Who would have thought a video about an egg would go viral on social media? To be fair, a picture of an egg did go viral a few years back and became the most liked photo on Instagram, but this scenario was a bit different. Let me explain.
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.
- Second Place in Mindful Gifting Challenge
Gifts for the EarthSecond Place in Mindful Gifting Challenge
Living a plant-based life involves more than just your diet. Every consumer decision we make can put plants (and the health of our planet) first, but it takes time, diligent research and sometimes a few sacrifices in order to make responsible, eco-conscious decisions. That’s why I created this gift guide. I wanted to share the companies that are doing their part to promote environmentalism, protect human rights and create products ANYONE would love.
TO DRINK, OR NOT TO DRINK?
The frat star (and senior baseball teammate) yelled at me in a slurred scream during my first college party. I stood there in the corner awkwardly… not sure what to say… not sure what to do. The party raged on, and I made my first of many premature party departures back to my dorm room.
