New research published in JAMA shows a massive increase in demand for abortion pills after the Dobbs decision — will the morning-after pill be banned next? I tracked some of this in a new essay for Northwest Review. Super proud to be included in one of the oldest and most prestigious literary journals in the country – they ran Ken Kesey’s first story in 1957!
I recently featured LA-based sustainable fashion innovator Ocean + Main in the newsletter. The sustainable fashion innovator crafts limited-edition clothing in inclusive sizes, often from upcycled sources and just released its annual sustainability report and launched a #preloved program. Nope, this is not sponsored but yes I am OBSESSED.
Spring sprung and we celebrated with a newsletter about the new Ask Mommy Greenest column, the book that shook, and an essay I recently published in the Washington Post on drinking that seemed to hit a nerve. Not on the list? Click here to join the conversation!
Today, I’m debuting a new column: Ask Mommy Greenest. Please share your questions in comments on this post and I’ll answer in a new one. Thanks! Jane asks: My daughter wants a sustainable prom dress. There is so much conflicting information out there – how do I know what’s really sustainable? Some of the “eco” brands are so expensive. How can I get her a dress that’s good for her and the planet – without breaking the bank?
I was looking for the perfect sustainable Father’s Day gift online, when I discovered Nordgreen eco watches. Whether the watch becomes an actual gift remains to be seen — it also could end up on my wrist.
It’s almost a cliché, this “going green” stuff. And all the hype can make you want to stick your head in the sand. But I believe that we need to approach the process with respect and without judgement. Everyone’s choices matter—and nobody can make them for you. If you choose to shift something in your life, that decision will stick longer than if someone else tells you what you have to do. So with that in mind, let’s talk about some ideas that could help get you started.
I was so honored to be interviewed at The Entrepreneur Experience, where host Lane Kennedy is determined to prove that moms can and do change the world. Don’t you agree?
In the next 24 hours, I’ll publish two blog posts, participate in three Twitter parties, see several interviews on other people’s blogs hit the web, and appear on KTLA News. (Thanks Stephanie Tsai at Ink & Press PR!) For the past three weeks, I’ve sent info to reporters scrambling for Earth Day related stories, and fielded pitches from publicists who either don’t know—or don’t care—that vegan is a completely different ball game from eco-friendly. (For more on that, check out my What is Green page.) And I’m quickly coming to realize one thing: I hate Earth Day.
