Sayonara Single-Use! Leaf Shave is Making Sustainable Shaving Easy
Because disposable razors and their replacement cartridges are made out of multiple materials, they're not recyclable outside of a few specialized programs. This means that the replacement cartridges used by some 160 million Americans as of 2019 will make their way into land fills this year. Leaf Shave will not only save me money, but also guarantees that I'll never contribute to that pollution ever again.

Invest in a Better World with COIN
Sponsored by COIN Conventional wisdom says we should start investing as soon as possible. The younger you are when you begin, the more time you have to build interest and the more money you’ll bank. But, for many of us (at least for me) investing still feels scary. When I think of investing and investors I imagine lots of stuffed suits with overly coiffed hair, carrying briefcases and trying to convince me to put my money in some big box superstore because ‘it’s a ‘sure’ thing’. At this point in my life, those types of investments are completely opposite of who I am as a person. However, the reality is…

7 Things I Learned About Piggies at Better Piggies Rescue
The ‘Better Piggies Rescue’ is a non-profit pig rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption organization. Danielle, the owner of the impeccably kept facility, compares it to having two full-time jobs – if, at one of those jobs, your boss woke up screaming to be fed at 2am. Luckily, her neighbors in the far north corner of Phoenix, just a stone’s throw from Cave Creek don’t seem to mind. Most of them own livestock themselves and know how it goes. Danielle manages the 14+ hour days and never ending workload with lots of humor – her rescues sport names like Picasso (a paint can loving Lothario), Busta (as in Rhymes), Milkshake and Beyonce…

This Week in Vegan News: 11/18
I wanted to test out a new feature here on the blog. So, for the next few weeks, I’ll be doing a weekly round-up of interesting vegan-centric news stories. FOOD + NUTRITION It’s Like Milk but Made for Humans Vegan oat-based milk alternative, Oatly, far exceeded sales goals thanks in part to a clever marketing campaign and has now inked a deal to increase its production 8-fold with the opening of a new bottling plant in Millville, New Jersey. Their success has attracted would-be competition, with Quaker Oats announcing the launch of their own oat milk scheduled for January 2019.
