December 5 is World Soil Day. What does this mean, and why should we care about soil health? It’s a lot more important that you might think! Here, I’m delighted to share with you an interview with Holly Rose. She’s an environmentalist, a writer, and a regenerative agriculture advocate from whom I have learned so much since first following her blog and Instagram. If you haven’t heard of her or regenerative agriculture before, you’re in for a treat! I sincerely hope you enjoy this interview, and I highly recommend following her online to learn much, much more.
Today is World Food Day. I can’t think of many issues more important than food. Food is political, powerful, and even more of a concern in a warming planet. Here are some of the many action items when it comes to food issues, as well as fantastic people to learn more from.
It’s a huge question: how can we evaluate companies, and which ones are best? How can we tell the difference between a company that’s doing good, and one that’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing? Sometimes it’s harder to judge than we think, and we’ve probably all fallen victim to marketing at one point or another. I know I have!
In the following paragraphs, I’ve attempted to put together a few tips and strategies for evaluating brands and becoming conscious consumers. We’re talking about greenwashing and corporate social responsibility here, so it’s a huge, and often confusing, topic!
Please note that these are general tips, and there will always be exceptions to these rules. Still, hopefully, these strategies will help serve as guiding principles.
