Become an informed consumer. Research green claims made by companies you regularly support/buy from. Ask questions like:
Do they test on animals? What kind of energy do they use to power their factories? Is your tuna dolphin-friendly?
Then find out the answers!
Free thinkers are dangerous, especially to big companies. Once you can make informed decisions about what you want to support with the purchases you make, you will become their worst nightmare. I promise.
Educate your family and friends about what it means to live sustainably.
what does living sustainably mean!?
Using Earth’s natural resources carefully and responsibly to make sure they will be available for future use. Always consider the next 7 generations and how they will be affected by the choices you make today.
I found Red Alert, a feminist zine at the Toronto Reference Library. It was made and produced in the 90s by Concordia QPIRG, a group of Québécois grrrls. They want to take ‘men’ out of menstruation and called it FEMSTRUATION! Why is it called menstruation anyways!?!?
These girls essentially wrote a vagina manual. They glorified PMS, taught me how to do my own breast-exams, explained the dangers of commercial feminine hygiene products and even had a fold-out pattern for DIY re-usable pads… plus lots more.
Red Alert helped me decide to take the risk and get my hands dirty ;]
I’M GOING ALL THE WAY, LADIES! I’m not ashamed of my lady parts.
♥ I l-o-v-e them ♥
+ Life’s boring without a bit of blood. So I bought myself re-usable pads. (more…)
