50 BEST ECO-FRIENDLY GIFT IDEAS

UPDATE: This blog has been edited to fit the current COVID situation we are experiencing so basically all outdoor activities, concerts, and experiences had been changed.     Sometimes buying presents feel like a burden and you find yourself going around malls, searching online for hours and still have no idea what to give to someone either for graduation, kids' birthday parties, baby showers, and most importantly, the holidays.   Everyone loves presents.

SEVEN PLANET-FRIENDLY FURNITURE BRANDS WE LOVE

UPDATE 09/17/2020 MDF Italia, another brand we work with, just shared this amazing change they decided to do in their own offices. So MDF Italia has chosen to show its green side and give employees and collaborators a sustainable bottle branded 24Bottle, with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of each individual.

PLASTIC UPDATE! 1 YEAR OF MY PERSONAL JOURNEY

People say it's hard to get rid of plastic. Tell me about it! When I decided to cut plastic out of my life, I knew it was going to be a long process and I had very realistic goals about it. I knew it wasn't going to happen over night, I knew I needed to know exactly how much plastic I had to begin with, and I knew I was not going to buy any new plastic, but start replacing what I ran out of with the eco-friendly version. So in January 2019 I took this picture: These were all...

ARE ECO-FRIENDLY, PLASTIC-FREE PRODUCTS MORE EXPENSIVE?

From disposable cameras to disposable diapers, few products marketed to consumers are made to last. We live in an age where everything gets thrown away and technology is obsolete after a few months, but what many consumers don't realize is that this throw-away lifestyle comes with a high cost not only to our finances but to the planet. Not only is your wallet continuously emptied as your limited supply of dollars chases an endless supply of new and updated products, but there is also an environmental price to pay for consumerism. Constant manufacturing of new and unnecessary products uses up virgin...
