How to be green this Halloween

As much as I adore Halloween with every fibre of my being, it is a big environmental hazard. With so much cheap, over-processed single-use items plaguing the season, I'd say it's just as bad as Valentine's Day for the environment. The only reason it's probably just behind Christmas is because we don't gift people things… Continue reading How to be green this Halloween

Becoming a Cactus Mom: One Year Later

World Environment Day: The Eco-friendly master list

Today is World Environment Day so I've decided to compile a master list of eco-friendly practices to adopt. The environment is at a breaking point, and if we don't all act now and maintain a more sustainable lifestyle and society, there's going to be no stopping global warming and ecological breakdown.
