Bamboo fabric, better than cotton?

I’ve always been a huge proponent of thrift store shopping, it’s hands-down my favorite stress release activity. However, when thinking about my style and clothing options I began to consider sustainable fabrics. Truthfully, I didn’t know a lick about sustainable fabric. But I did have an inkling that the textile industry is riddled with severe…

Eating Organic on a Budget

I frequently have people asking me “How do you shop so organic, isn’t that super expensive?”, and unfortunately the answer is complicated. I, being eco-fabulous and fabulously broke, try as hard as possible to shop smart. I prefer to go to the grocery store at 7am on Saturday morning when no one is there so…

Your addiction to Amazon is actually good for the planet

E-commerce (also known as your Amazon addiction) is good for the planet and thus, dubbed eco-fabulous. Because what is more fabulous than getting the stuff you need at the push of a button, and helping the environment along the way? Nothing, there is nothing more fabulous than that. Ordering things online is basically a gift…

Before we get started on all of this, I want to put out there that I do not support any vandalism of any property that is not classified as personally yours (except for your mean ex’s shirts, go ahead and burn them). With that being said, conservationists are using a variety of graffiti to save…

Conservation Wednesday: Not your average Cecil the Lion post

The death of Cecil the lion, and any endangered animal is a tragedy and an injustice. The circumstances surrounding Cecil’s hunt, suffering, and subsequent death were purely out of a small man’s need to feel powerful. Any human being whose soul is sewn with any kind of decent thread will measure a man’s power by…

Currently on Tuesday: Ivory on the chopping block

We all know that we Americans don’t do anything without the theatrics, and thats exactly what happened with the ivory crushing event in Times Square in NYC on June 19, 2015. Because there’s no more dramatic way to oppose the ivory trade than to publicly crush one ton of ivory for all the world to…

Props Wednesday: Costumes for Conservation

I love all (most) animals, but there’s only a couple that I go coo coo for coco puffs about. One of those animals is the Giant Panda, the obsession has been real since around 2002. The only reason I actually have a year on this was because my family took a vacation to Washington DC…
