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.

Comments I Hate to Receive as a Vegetarian

Since it’s ‘Veganuary’, I wanted to publish some sort of vegetarian themed post. This might not be a beneficial topic, but hopefully it’s something you can relate to! I know vegetarians and vegans tend to get a bad reputation for pushing their lifestyle on others, but I don’t feel like I’m very vocal about it. I don’t want people to be rude about my diet, so I don’t want to be rude to others about theirs.

Sustainable Gift Ideas

If you’re looking for gift ideas for a friend or family member who is trying to be more eco-friendly (or if you want to be more sustainable when it comes to giving gifts), you’ve come to the right place! These gifts can also be useful to people who are not as sustainable-they always need to start somewhere (although you might also want to gift them things more suitable to their interests as well)! A lot of sustainable practices reduce waste/trash anyways (who wants clutter around their home?), so it’s a win-win.

Going Cruelty Free

While I have tried to be cruelty-free the past few years, I haven’t taken it as seriously as I need to. Sometimes I felt like it took me too much time to research which brands test on animals, but is that a good excuse? No. I have decided that there’s no reason not to be cruelty free, so I’m no longer going to purchase any products that harmed animals to create.

Should You Get A Pet?

shouldyougetapet

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!
