My Top Three Sustainability Watches Might Shock You

Sustainability is a much broader topic than one might initially think. Sure, you can go traditional when you choose your sustainability viewing material and watch documentaries like The True Cost, Cowspiracy, Waste Land and such, but there are some real lessons to be learned in the most unlikely of viewing pleasures. You don’t have to watch serious to do some serious learning. The following three movies are my top picks for...

Global Goals

Have you ever spent some time thinking about what changes you would like to champion? Yes? Excellent. Then this week is right up your alley. No?

You might assume that someone like me would have known about this to give you an advanced warning. Sadly, this is not the case. I’ve been...

Conscious Coupling: Eco Dating is a Real Thing.

It’s safe to say that as a married woman my dating prowess is a  little rusty. I do go on lots of ‘dates’ with people that I have met online, but these are all sustainable fashion related, not romantically inclined outings. I was super surprised to find out the other day that there are ways that you can now date to fit your environmental values. A fantastic idea that not only saves you the time and hassle of trying...

If you are eco minded it can be even more challenging to stay positive as we are hearing an increasing number of facts about the negative impact that our  actions of past are having now, and are expected to have in the future. While it’s important to be aware of...

Sleep Well and Look Good

Sleeping Beauty had it worked out. We all know it but not all of us are game to admit it- no amount of coffee or concealer will make up for a restless night. Sleep is one of those wonderful things in life that is free, makes us look and feel good, and can be as easy as closing your eyes. However, for some of us (my dear hubby included) sleep isn’t all that easy! We have busy schedules, parental demands (fur babies included), and...

From August first to the eight Meat Free Week are encouraging you to take a breather form your meat consumption and spend the week eating like a cow (as opposed to eating a cow).

Stylish Ways To Burn Rubber

When our discarded waste takes revenge. I recently watched one of the craziest movies I have ever seen. It was called Rubber and was a random Netflix find. The story goes that a car tyre comes to life in the middle of a desert dump. It finds it’s momentum, starts to learn how to move on it’s own, and before long it’s rolling around squishing things. Not satisfied with just squishing things it decides to up it’s...

A Plastic Pollution Source That May Never Have Crossed Your Mind

Sun, salt, and sand is a cure all. And as many of us already know, a blissful trip to the beach can often be spoiled by the presence of litter, especially those nasty non-biodegradable plastic types. Plastic in our oceans isn’t just unsightly, it is also damaging to marine ecosystems with many animals mistaking our litter for food. From the picture below it’s pretty easy to see why a hungry sea turtle might mistake a...

Cacti With More Than Just Good Looks.

  The Prickly Pear’s history in Australia In the 19th century there was a decision to introduce the spiked, hardy, and now-very-on-trend cactus, the Prickly Pear (mostly the species Opuntia stricta for those who like their fancy latin names)to Australia to use as natural agricultural fencing (with additional industry benefits we will discuss in a bit). Unfortunately this prickly little fella was pretty darn happy living in...
