Sustainable Table – Old School shopping  

It’s time to start preparing for the holidays. Make it special, but make it sustainable and try to limit the amount of waste you produce. Everybody loves saving when buying groceries, so why not reduce your rubbish and save money by buying in bulk!   Here are 5 good reasons to start buying in bulk:   Plastic Free – We all need to take care of our planet and reduce the amount of plastic we produce. So how about we start with plastic? Usually people recommend to use BPA free plastic safe, however, the plastic used as an alternative can still be just as harmful, so choose a glass bottle instead!   Less waste – Use reusable rather than disposable containers when bulk buying to cut down the amount of rubbish produced.   Buy what you need – Bulk-buying gives you the opportunity to control how much you buy. You scoop in whatever you need. This helps you save money as you are only paying for what you need!   Natural Ingredients – The more natural ingredients …

I try to live a fairly green life by doing small things that help reduce my footprint but I know I could be doing so much more. We are teaching our 3-year-old daughter important things like recycling, not wasting power, saving water, re-using paper for art projects (instead of …

Actress Carly Schroeder (25) has been in the spotlight since the age of 3, starring in advertising roles as well as in TV shows, such as Port Charles and General Hospital, Dawson’s Creek and Lizzie McGuire and several films.  She’s a vegan, animal activist and extreme sports advocate, who spends much of her time climbing mountains as a free solo climber, when she’s not running marathons or in the water surfing or paddle boarding.  Here she shares her health and beauty secrets. What does being naturally beautiful mean to you? I’m an actress/model and I’m a free solo climber (no ropes) so, I’ve learned that “actress/model pretty” is never natural!  Natural is when I’m rock climbing. You can’t have a ton of makeup on with all the sweat and dirt and rocks falling at you. Natural beauty is the color of your eyes, the sun-kissed glow of your skin, the flushed lip color with a big smile. A little cover up, Chapstick and waterproof mascara never hurt though haha 😉 What is/are your healthy diet secrets? I’m …
