The Best Eco-Friendly & Vegan Shoes for Guys & Gals (that you’ve never heard of)

I don’t even remember how I came across the website for NOAH’s Italian made vegan shoes but I’m glad I did. I really thought I knew every vegan & eco shoe line out there but somehow the 3 year old NOAH line remained elusive. Not anymore. NOAH has shoes for both men and women but […]

Eco-Friendly & Vegan Valentine’s Day Gifts

Most of you know I’m not very big on shopping.  My idea of a great Valentine’s Day would simply be time with your sweetheart.  Be it a picnic at a gorgeous park, a gourmet homemade meal, or hours set aside for one on one time (no cell phones allowed).  But lets face it, sometimes gifts […]

Eco-friendly Handbags to Fall in Love With

The other day I was killing time with friends at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas.  We wandered into the gift shop to see what sort of cheezy Vegas memorabilia we could giggle at.  Among the Vegas rhinestone T’s, and Elvis mugs I was shocked to find some eco-friendly products.  Laser cut wood earring, a […]

Is your yoga practice toxic?

Yard Sale Love

Despite being such a green girl, I forget how awesome yard sales can be.  I’m not avoiding yard sales but they just aren’t on my radar.  I might see one walking the dog, but I don’t make the effort to wake up early,  fill my wallet with ones, and go in search of good sales.   […]

Why I Stopped Shopping

In January of 2010 I decided I was going to stop shopping for new clothes/shoes/jewelry/ etc.  Anyone that knew me knew that was going to be a challenge.  Despite being an environmentalist I didn’t admit the connection between the environment and my clothes.  I shopped out of boredom (Macy’s was in walking distance), shopped because […]
