Sustainable Tips for the New Year with Annalise Braakensiek
The following has been kindly contributed by our guest blogger Annalise Braakensiek, model, actress and passionate animal rights activist.   As 2014 draws to an end, it’s nice to reflect on the year that was. To be grateful for all the blessings and beautiful moments we’ve had, and to learn from the disappointments and tragedies we’ve experienced. I especially like to remind myself at this time of year that although the problems we face both globally and personally can feel beyond repair, we can help to make a difference. Just as the smallest kind gesture can make a [...]
Gifts that Keep on Giving
It’s hard to believe it but the festive season is almost upon us once again, which means it’s time to shop for presents for our loved ones (and for our children’s teachers, our hairdresser, the garbage collector etc. etc…).

Eco Tan I grew up in the early 80s – with a neon zinc-cream covered nose, coconut-oiled body and lemon-juiced hair. The key goal for summer was to get my skin as brown as humanly possible. Sonya Driver, founder of Eco Tan, grew up in the same era. When her sister was diagnosed with melanoma, they began getting [...]
Thumbs Up: Egganic Free Range Eggs
What is it? Egganic Free-Range Eggs Ethical Credentials The owners of the farm that produce Egganic eggs, Jacqui and Jim, place a very high priority on animal welfare and the eggs they produce are truly free range. Their hens are free to roam on pasture, where they are able to peck in the dirt and bathe in the dust just as nature intended. Hens are stocked at a maximum density of 300/hectare (which is even less than the organic standard of 1500 hens/hectare) and they are not debeaked. Jacqui and [...]
