Our washers and dryers work hard for us day in and day out. Just ask any great- or great-great grandmother and they will tell you: the washing machine is one of the world’s greatest inventions! Yet, most of us have never been taught how to clean these appliances properly. That’s right, all washers and dryers (top-loading and front-loading) need regular cleaning to keep them running smoothly and prevent maintenance issues. The good news is cleaning these workhorses only takes a few minutes every few months, and does not require harsh chemicals! Why Bother Cleaning Your Washer And Dryer? The ide ..read more

Most sneakers are manufactured using dangerous chemicals that eek into our environment and bodies. Sneakers are a must-have in our modern world though, so what to do? Choose eco! You don’t even need to google, because I’ve done the trying on and testing for you! The following companies are all doing things in a responsible manner, and look just as cool as any other brand (if not cooler because you get brownie points for supporting small green businesses.)

Trick a Meat Lover With These Insanely Good Vegan Burgers
The Kind Life
by Dr. Eileen Natzuzzi
2w ago
Can a plant-based burger taste good and be good for you? Plant-based burgers are everywhere these days. It is not unusual to see them in grocery stores or on the menu of your favorite vegan or nonvegan restaurants. In addition to fast food chains like Carl’s Junior and Burger King serving up Impossible and Beyond burgers even some mainstream steakhouse restaurants, like the Chart House, are including them on the menu. Initially, as a vegan, I was put off by the production of an all plant food that emulated the flesh of a murdered cow. I thought we should encourage “cold turkey” veganism. But i ..read more

Ethically Made Denim That’s Sexy, Fabulous, and Sustainable
The Kind Life

I’ve been searching high and low for amazing fitting, comfortable ethically made sustainable denim for years and years!  It’s harder than you’d think to find the holy grail of perfect fit, comfort, and a conscious design and manufacturing process. As I wrote in my article on clothing waste, Synthetic fabrics are made from a cocktail of chemicals + plastic and include textiles such as acrylic, nylon, polyester, and spandex. Recent research shows that synthetic fabrics have some down right scary aftermath, specifically when they’re washed.

Critically Endangered Red Wolves Need Out Help
The Kind Life
by Loti Woods
2w ago
Let’s start with a question. What is the most endangered wild animal in the U.S.?  If your pick is the critically endangered red wolf, you are right! Of course, the photos might have given you a clue! Not only are they endangered, but they are also an underdog species — meaning they are unjustly feared and misunderstood. So what makes an animal endangered? Any animal or plant that is so rare it might go extinct is considered endangered. And going extinct means it is gone forever. It is no longer on our planet. Pretty scary. With less than just 20 red wolves left in the wild, they are on t ..read more

8 Ways to Supercharge Your Fitness Results, Plus a Vegan Smoothie to Help You Sleep
The Kind Life
by Brendan Brazier

I’ve come to learn that there’s much more to becoming a successful athlete than simply eating and exercising—calories in, calories out. There has to be a purpose with both. There also needs to be an appreciation and understanding of how training and food impact the hormonal system and the significant value that comes with working this system to our advantage. In my first book, Thrive, I write extensively about the destructive nature of chronically elevated cortisol levels, caused by stress. The first onset of elevated cortisol actually provides a surge of energy and even increased stren ..read more

Natural Remedies for When You Get Sick (Plus: How to Strengthen Your Immune System So You Don’t)
The Kind Life
by Branch Basics
3w ago
One of the most frequently asked questions we get this time of year is, “what do you do when you get sick?” I remember asking Marliee (our co-founder) this question when I started learning about food as medicine, tossing the toxins and natural remedies years ago. I also remember wondering if switching to a non-toxic lifestyle would prevent me from getting sick as often. And it did! However, like everyone else in the world, I still get sick at least once or twice a year (and so do my kids… sometimes more frequently). At first, I thought I must be doing something wrong. But then I lea ..read more
