I've been on the search recently for more natural fibers and materials when it comes to the clothing I wear, especially my gym and yoga wear. Which is mostly polyester and synthetic (yours is too, check the label). Little did I know how bad this fabric is for our environment. After a bit of digging... it's not so good, to say the least!
Cities are more important than ever in efforts to address climate change. By 2050 global city populations are expected to almost double in size, but urban areas already account for nearly 75 per cent of total carbon emissions. Cities all around the planet have the opportunity to transition "from grey to green."
Humans are naturally drawn to watching animals, it's one of the reasons why we have zoos, aquariums and sanctuaries exist, unfortunately that curiosity is leading ot widespread abuse of many animals around the world thanks to wildlife tourism.
A man's skin is very different from a woman's, in most cases it's oiler, the pores are larger and it's more sensitive due to the daily shaving routine, I've rounded up my top tips (with product recommendations) for the perfect shave.
What was once thought of a fad, is now a bonafide, legit business. In fact, so legit, that it's now become harder and harder to know which eco skincare product is right for you and whether the "natural" and "organic" claims are true. So I am going to break it down for you.

H&M's attempt to practice the closed-loop fibre strategy is a needed initiative in fashion sustainability. It is an interesting solution, not just for its environmental benefits, but also for its commercial and economic potential.
Eat sage everyday, it improves digestion and breaks down fatty deposits that cause cellulite. Enjoy a cup of coffee, but keep the left over grounds. They are a great natural cellulite treatment. Simply rub them on the problem area, rinse and apply your moisturizer.
Sure, we all work hard, but why are all of those office building lights still on at 3 am? Your cell phone charger that is plugged in (that is warm even when not charging), the wireless printer that is always on (we see the glowing light) and that computer you never shut down are all offenders in the perpetual energy (and bank account) drain. Unplug, people!
What is an ecosexual, you might ask? It's about looking at the Earth not as 'mother', but as 'lover' -- calling to reduce our carbon footprints and revolutionize how we each truly impact our environment. What's a better trend than being eco-friendly and increasing your pleasure capacity at the same time?!
