I was looking for a good non-leather belt that wasn’t stiff or prone to shredding to sport my favorite Heidi Abra belt buckles when I learned about Cliff Belts. ¬†Cliff Belts are made from sustainably harvested cork.

Like most people I never considered what animal was being destroyed to make my warm calf-high boots, I just liked that they were indoor/outdoor and easy to put on. […]

How To Take Off Years With One Trash Bag

Biodegrable Trash Bags

A while back I became obsessed with trash. At my house we recycle diligently (ok maniacally, have you ever seen a land-fill? Gross). I have two trash cans in the kitchen and I am proud to admit the one for recycling fills up faster. But one thing that was always on my mind as I […]
