Vegan Skincare Range For Puberty, Pregnancy & Beyond

When you think about the combination of mainstream skincare products, makeup, deodorant and perfumes, many women are putting literally hundreds of individual chemicals on their skin every single day. This was something that alarmed Australian Morgan Littler, who was constantly on the hunt for holy-grail beauty products after battling common skin troubles. She didn’t want […]

Call To Ban Fur in NSW and Victoria Getting Louder

You probably saw the recent media reports about garments trimmed with real fur being mis-sold as ‘faux’ fur in Melbourne markets. The joint investigation by global animal protection organisation FOUR PAWS and MP for Western Victoria Andy Meddick uncovered a raft of items including beanies and jackets that contained fur from raccoon dogs. Raccoon dogs […]

Australian Shampoo Brand Tackles Single Use Plastic Pollution

Despite the recent focus on single-use plastics, the problem continues to loom as large as ever. Yes, it’s convenient, but it’s also an environmental disaster. In Australia alone, 5.3 million consumers – that’s 27.1% of the population – purchase single use plastic bottles on a weekly basis. These include bottled water, other drinks and foods, […]

I AM SOMEONE exhibition

Photographer Gary Sheppard Gives A Face To Farm Rescue Animals

I walked into Bondi Pavilion’s Gallery not really knowing what to expect. Knowing the premise of the exhibition, I was scared I might’ve been going to see confronting images of rescued farm animals in ways I wouldn’t want to see them portrayed. Yes, they were confronting, but not in the way you would first think. […]

Vegan Fashion Week – Edition 2 Wrap Up

We weren’t quite sure what to expect of Vegan Fashion Week – Edition 2. Headed up by founder Emmanuelle Rienda and run by a small and dedicated team, our communication in the lead-up to the event was somewhat limited. But we jumped at the chance to attend anyway, and promptly booked tickets to LA. Here […]

We’re Saying ‘Nup To The Cup’. Here’s Why & How You Can Too

The ‘Nup to the Cup’ Movement is no longer just a trend. It’s a groundswell movement sweeping Australia. Why not join it?

How Pleather Went From Woe To Wow

Not so long ago, synthetic leather had a bad rap. It was shiny, sweaty and squeaky –basically what you’d buy if you couldn’t afford the real thing. How things have changed. What was once variously labelled as imitation, artificial, faux or fake, pleather now has a new moniker – vegan leather. And with that comes […]

Vegan, Organic, Biodynamic… What Does It All Mean When It Comes To Wine?

Ten years ago, it was a little voice in the wilderness. Today it’s a roar. Organic and biodynamically produced chardonnays and cabernets are the fastest growing wine market across the world, fuelled by claims that they are better for your health and better for the planet. In a report released late last year, wine and […]

What Happens At LA Animal Save’s Pig Vigil?

It’s late on a Sunday night in downtown Los Angeles when we set off in the dark, with some trepidation, to attend a pig vigil outside Farmer John’s slaughterhouse in Vernon organised by the Save Movement. I’m travelling with my business partner, Sally, and we’re in LA for Vegan Fashion Week and to meet with other […]

25 Ways We Can All Fight Climate Change (Even If Your Name’s Not Greta)

The power of one person to create change is a mighty thing. Just look at Greta Thunberg and her ability to galvanise a global movement. The climate strikes have been incredible; hundreds of thousands of people from at least 98 countries, gathering to demand more from our leaders. And while more does need to be […]

Vegan Fashion Week LA Is Back & We’re Going!

It’s back! Vegan Fashion Week, Los Angeles. 10th – 15th October 2019. Given the global success and media storm created when it debuted in February this year, we’re not surprised. Having worked at Vogue and ELLE many years ago, if someone told me a fashion week built around veganism would grace their pages, I wouldn’t […]

Are You Getting Enough Magnesium for Optimum Health?

It’s not unusual for a naturopath or nutritionist to have a favourite nutrient, and, hands down, mine is magnesium. I’m certain I’m not alone in that as magnesium is having a distinct moment in the sun, (which, by the way, I wholly support). This mineral is truly amazing and I’m about to tell you why. […]

How I Survived (And LOVED) Meat Free Week

I’ve always skirted on the edge of vegetarianism – once, I didn’t eat meat for 13 years – and ‘vegan-curious’ is a word I’ve actually used in conversation. Then two small kids come along and, well, to be honest it all seemed a bit too hard. Which is why, when I decided to sign up […]

Is Your Toothpaste A Vegan Toothpaste?

Not so very long ago, toothpastes contained glycerine, also known as animal fat. Glycerin is a humectant – it holds onto water and stops the toothpaste from drying out in the tube. It also prevents dryness in the mouth during brushing. These days glycerin can be made either synthetically or from plant sources, and that’s […]
