Eco-Plastic: Pet Bowls That Make a Difference

Eco-Plastic: Pet Bowls That Make a Difference

To me, there are few moments more important in our pets' lives (as in our kids' lives) then meal times. The growing awareness around the food we choose for our families -both our two and four-legged family - shines a light on the all the bad things we don't want our kids to eat. The next step in the food revolution is paying attention to what we serve our food on.

Why a Super Pig May Change How We Feel About Breakfast

Why a Super Pig May Change How We Feel About Breakfast

Since I have a very high capacity for empathy, watching animal exploitation films was difficult. Seeing any creature experience pain causes me to struggle with tears, hyperventilate and look away, which is why I'm excited about Okja - a new film by Bong Joon-ho (watch the trailer here).

To bee or not to bee: the truth beehind honey and beeswax

To bee or not to bee: the truth beehind honey and beeswax

For years, I believed that honey was a natural and healthy option to other sweeteners. And I loved beeswax. I even rolled my own sheets to make candles in my late 20s. When I chose to live a vegan life, I dutifully gave up honey and beeswax but I wasn’t really sure why. I would answer: bee exploitation, when people asked, but my vague answer did little to convince me that I really knew why.

Compassionate bedrooms for peaceful dreams

Compassionate bedrooms for peaceful dreams

The bedroom is the heart of our home, our most intimate space. The bedroom is the room that recharges us, holds our secrets, and provides refuge. No piece of furniture is as important as our bed, the bedroom’s centerpiece. For me, a comfortable bed is key to my bedroom and comfortable for me means soft and warm. Yes, I am a fluff junkie...

Are your cleaning supplies slowly killing you?

Are your cleaning supplies slowly killing you?

Stains, grime and fingerprints – a  detective’s best friends, my worst enemy. A clean house to me is a happy and healthy house.

I never questioned either the values of the companies who manufactured these products or the ingredients found in the products themselves. I trusted these companies in my belief that clean was clean.

Designing compassionate and chic floors

Designing compassionate and chic floors

Flooring is the aesthetic foundation of our homes. From hardwood, to carpet, concrete or rug-filled, our floors define the look and style of our homes and even say a little about us. Floors reveal whether we prefer modern and clean, warm and colorful and, now, if we are compassionate. Can we keep our vegan values in mind when we think of our home’s floors? Absolutely.
