Plastic Free July is a global movement engaging millions of people to become part of the solution to plastic pollution. The movement specifically asks each of us – that means you, me, and everyone else who is willing – to refuse single-use plastic.
Creating a more sustainable wardrobe can feel intimidating. Just a toe-dip into the realm of clean and ethical fashion can make you start asking questions like: How was this item of clothing made? Who made it? What’s it made of? How do I spot safer and more ethical items online or on the rack? There’s a lot to consider, we know.
When it comes to conventional fashion, the more you know, the more you start to look at your closet differently. Shopping becomes not just about how a piece fits, how much it costs, and how much you love it. As you learn more about the fashion industry, you start asking yourself how clothing was made, who made the piece, and what it’s made of.
Have you ever thought about what you’re putting on or inside the most sensitive parts of your body? At MADE SAFE, we sure have – so we think it’s time that the sex talk is transformed into the healthy sex talk.
Every woman I’ve ever met remembers her first period, and usually has a story to boot. For me, I’ll never forget seeking the counsel of the school nurse on that day way-back-when. She handed over a pad essentially the size of a diaper. Oh, how times have changed! These days, pads have gotten thinner, tampons are now much more common, and new solutions like menstrual cups and period panties are taking the femcare market by storm. It’s a good time to be alive with a period!
Plastic Pollution is a devastating problem plaguing our planet, especially our oceans. According to the book Plastic Soup, if we continue at the current pace, by 2050, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by weight.
My Grandmother Helen always taught us to save up to buy good jewelry. While I have a few family heirlooms, I’m not sure I’m living up to my grandmother’s mandate. My jewelry box contains antiques from fairs and a funky collection of colorful pieces that remind me of certain times in my life. There are also trinkets and mementos I just can’t part with. A few items are “good” investments, I suppose. But what has the most value is hard to say. Who knows what most of them are actually worth or what they are actually made of?
