People’s Climate Movement NY

I had a wonderful opportunity to attend a People’s Climate Movement of New York event today. The evening kicked off with PCM‘s very own Leslie Cagan speaking and opening the floor for what the rest of the event would be like.

Some Triumph for African Lions

Image source: ABC News (2015) Most of us aren’t aware of how African lion hunting actually takes place. So although this article regards some triumph for African lions — I equally want to disclose that it’s not a full ban on trophy hunting of these marvelous felines. A private U.S. pro-hunting group Safari Club International hasContinue reading “Some Triumph for African Lions”

10 Necessary Factors for a Sustainable Environment

1. Combating poverty is a central goal because poverty reduces access to healthcare, education, and other essential components of development. 2. Reducing resource consumption is a global consideration, but wealthy regions are responsible for most of the world’s consumption.

Stop Wasting Paper!

Climate change is real. Environmental issues affect us all. Whether we feel affected by it personally or not doesn’t change the affect it has on other people and parts of the world.

Ivory Victory in China

Image source: National Geographic (2016) It’s with much contentment to announce that China has finally banned ivory.

Elephant populations declined at an alarming rate fromContinue reading “Ivory Victory in China”

Real Trees vs. Artificial Trees

We are officially 20 days away from the Christmas holiday and, of course, the environmental conversation continues. I want to address our thoughts on real Christmas trees versus artificial ones. At first thought, you would think that artificial trees dominate because they can be reused over & over, year after year, but that’s actually wrong. I knowContinue reading “Real Trees vs. Artificial Trees”

Back to Nature

I had an amazing opportunity over this past weekend (which was also my birthday weekend) to go to the mountains in Catskill, NY. I’m a nature lover as it is so I was excited to say the least. I only stood for 3 days and 3 nights but that was more than enough time toContinue reading “Back to Nature”

What is Social Responsibility?

Social responsibility is always on my mind. The reason why I write is because of social responsibility. The reason why I feel a strong desire to educate people about the environment and self-care is due to social responsibility. The reason why I devote my time to express what are non-traditional ideas is all owed toContinue reading “What is Social Responsibility?”
