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. Climate change isn't going… Continue reading World Environment Day: The Eco-friendly master list

Earlier this week I went to what's called the "Happy Market" in my university. It's an annual event held by the environmental society where students can sell unwanted clothes, last time I found some gems there as seen in my sustainable fashion haul so this time was no different.

The Circle of Life: Why You Should Care About Climate Change

The thought of our planet falling apart right in front of our very eyes is what keeps me up all night. In a movie, heroes would save the day from some sort of evil entity and all would be well. Life isn't a movie, and although we hate to admit it, we are the bad… Continue reading The Circle of Life: Why You Should Care About Climate Change
