Favorite Sustainability Videos

I wanted to write more sustainability and environmental conservation posts for my blog this year, so I am going to start off with some of my favorite videos that bring awareness to environmental issues! I think that when videos and films are done well, they can leave an inspirational message with their viewers. Especially since nature is so beautiful and the destruction can be so horrible to see, I believe videos can certainly help bring awareness to environmental concerns. I personally enjoy watching them and feel more inspired than ever to spread awareness and help the issue myself.

While there’s plenty of videos and documentaries out there, this post features five of my favorite videos. I feel like these motivate me to research these topics further and look for lifestyles changes that can help the environment. In the future, I’ll probably make a post similar to this one but with my favorite documentaries. Since documentaries are longer, they’re normally more informational and focus more on one topic.

Gift Ideas for Pets

As the proud owner of both a cat and dog, I wanted to share gift ideas for pets!

I treat my pets like people and love to wrap up a few gifts for them to open for Christmas. When I showed my cat, Tigger, how to open her gifts, she quickly learned to tear through the wrapping paper to find her present inside. This year will be my dog’s first Christmas with me, and I’m planning on wrapping up his gifts as well. He’s such an excitable dog, so I think Scooby will be excited about it (as long as he doesn’t get spooked by the crinkling noise wrapping paper makes)!

Should You Get A Pet?

I, like many other people, wanted a dog when I was a young child (okay, and maybe a pony and a guinea pig and a couple more dogs as well). My parents, like many other parents, didn’t immediately get me one. Why? Because having a pet is a huge responsibility.

While I’m all about people rescuing poor animals from animal shelters and rescue organizations, it’s also important to consider if getting a pet is right for you. It’s not going to be beneficial for you or the animal if you’re going to neglect him/her. I’m not trying to dissuade anyone from getting a pet (if you’re ready, you definitely should because they’re the best!); I’m just saying that you need to think about it beforehand. I’ll even help you with some questions to consider!

Being a Vegetarian

Good morning everyone! Today I wanted to discuss a topic that I’m passionate about: being a vegetarian. A few days ago, I actually discovered that this month is ‘Veganuary’ where you can pledge to go vegan for the month (the site has a lot of information about going vegan if you’re interested). Although going vegan interests me and I do eat mostly vegan when I cook for myself, I’m still just a vegetarian for now. Who knows, that may change in the future. Continue reading
