Imagine you’re out to eat a celebration dinner with family and friends. You order a nice cold brew with a salmon filet and settle in for a fun night.

Unfortunately, this scenario isn’t too far from the truth; we are ingesting plastics when we eat certain fish and drink beverages from some areas. F...

I was recently tasked with checking out the “single scene” in Miami for this blog. Cool, I thought, even though I wasn’t sure what the connection to bamboo toothbrushes was…and I was even more unsure what my wife’s reaction would be. Turns out, I wasn’t being sent to mingle with singles in night clubs and bars, but instead was charged with looking into how single-use plastics are being used across the city. Doesn’t sound quite as fun but was probably for the best.As I unpacked my bag, stuffe...

I learned this many years ago as a young single mama and I’ve been paying even more attention lately as I choose to live a more sustainable and mindful life.As a young parent of two children, my morning ritual began when I woke at dawn to sip a cup of coffee and sit in silence with my smooth journal and a fine point pencil. I allowed my mind t...

Making A Difference Together One of the oddest insults we’ve found out there is Tree Hugger. How could caring about the environment be a bad thing when the environment is quite literally the one thing we all depend on for survival? We can sort of see why shortsighted business owners (you now the ones who exploit the environment to make more money) would be angry about people trying to limit their access and therefore hurt their bottom line, because well, they’re ruthless. It’s the actions of th...
