At this time of year we are reminded of the many blessings we enjoy and encouraged to show compassion for others.  For vegans, this includes non-human individuals and Mother Earth. The Holidays are as much about feasting and compassion as they are about gift giving and this amazing roast is as easy to put together as it is absolutely delicious!

Hosting a meatless meal this year will withhold support for the cruel animal products industry, and save money while saving the planet. Factory Farming, Unnatural, Unhealthy and Unsustainable …read more of Fabulous, Festive Holiday Roast ~ Economical, Eco-Friendly and Compassionate! here

Not long ago leather was synonymous with cutting-edge fashion, popular with rock stars, artists and bohemian types. Consumers these days are more aware what goes into the production of goods and the impact it can have on the environment.

Transforming animal skin into leather requires massive amounts of energy and a noxious combination of lethal chemicals. Eighty percent of the leather produced worldwide is chrome-tanned (chromium is considered hazardous by the EPA) adding to the already toxic mix of mineral salts, formaldehyde, coal-tar derivatives, oils, dyes and finishes, often cyanide-based used in the tanning process. …read more of Mechaly, Cruelty-Free Handbags, Stylish, Eco-Friendly and Affordable here

Have Yourself a Sustainable Christmas… Let Your Heart Be Light!

Walk into stores on the first weekend of November and you are faced with shelves and shelves of Christmas paraphernalia, baubles, tinsel, lights, nutcrackers and the list goes on and on!  With fully six weeks to go until Christmas retailers are all over the Christmas mayhem – let me reword that…the retailers are creating the Christmas mayhem!

Most of these items are of course “made in India” or “made in China.”  And although I do not have a problem with imported goods, I do have a problem with creating plastic junk that ends up in boxes in my house or in the trash.

I always try and look at the bright side of things, so I have decided to try to make sure that I have enough time to prepare for that one day and not give in to those last minute emergency gift buying sprees and think like the eco-conscious girl that I am! …read more of Have Yourself a Sustainable Christmas… Let Your Heart Be Light! here

Green Barbecue Tips

Backyard chefs believe that food cooked over an open fire is especially tasty because the juices stay concentrated in the middle and the surface becomes seared with smoky flavor. Cookouts may well be the quintessential summer pastime but can be unhealthy for people and the planet.

Charcoal Grills:

Burning charcoal briquettes pollutes the air. The smoky flavor in charcoal comes from charred wood and contributes to deforestation. Charcoal briquettes are made from sawdust bound with a type of glue and may also contain limestone, sodium nitrate and coal dust.

Lump Charcoal

Lump charcoal is made from natural hardwood and will generally produce far less ash. Natural wood charcoal will light very easily and does not contain fillers and are therefore free of chemical pollutants. …read more of Green Barbecue Tips here

New Zealand, Back to the Future on this Peaceful Pacific Island

No GMOs in this Nuclear-Free Zone

I have heard that visiting New Zealand is like traveling back in time to the 1950’s; however I would say that it was quite the opposite during my recent visit.

For me, it seemed more like going forward in time to a perfect vision of a future filled with peace and kind and loving people who always greet you with a warm smile.

The unspoiled “Middle-earth” vistas are filled with millions of sheep and cows that live 100 percent outdoors for year-round grazing, due to pleasant weather, which they refer to as ‘long, fine spells.’

The dress code everywhere is ‘hiker chic’ where sage green prevails, reflecting the New Zealand motto of  ‘Clean and Green.’  I found that there were no poisonous snakes, bugs or any sort of dangerous animals to halt you in your tracks on a long hike. …read more of New Zealand, Back to the Future on this Peaceful Pacific Island here
