I am a big fan of practical art. Artwork that one uses everyday while going about regular life brings beauty to the mundane. One of my favorite practical artists is potter Jeanette Zeis. Based out of Portland, Oregon, Jeanette has been making pottery full-time since 2008. Her beautifully crafted work consists of houseware items like bowls, […]

Several years ago a Little Shop of Horrors-variety dentist turned what was supposed to be a routine teeth cleaning into a painful years-long affair in which my teeth were incredibly sensitive to cold. Having a glass of ice water or cold green smoothie brought lots of discomfort with it. Rather than living a life of […]
An interview with Janet Meredith of Pure LIving Boutique (+ a special discount!) as our Natural Beauties series continues…
Today we share an interview with Sarah Villanfranco, creator of Osmia Organics, on what inspires her + a look at her own beauty routine…
Our feature interview was with Prince Lorenzo Borghese, who talked about his love of animals and how he developed a wonderful line of organic and healthy pet products, The Royal Treatment. Cute right? Yes, Lorenzo is adorable, but I meant the name!
We finally got to talk to one of our Green Diva heroes, the beautiful and inspiring actress, author and activist, Mariel Hemingway. She is one busy lady these days with a documentary about her life as a Hemingway, Running From Crazy, and her new book, The Willing Way and many worthy projects in between.
Continuing our series, Natural Beauties :: Interviews with Top Natural Beauty Experts today with something special…
With Valentines Day upon us its pretty hard to escape all those heart-shaped, pink and red candies. While they may seem temping, many of them contain GMOs.
Had an excellent ramblin holidaze show this week in the Green Divas Radio Show studio and am thrilled we were able to record AND podcast finally!
We had a great time with Ebru Today talking about getting greener in the kitchen. I kept my tips to things that were relatively easy, low or no-cost or in fact saved money.
Our first guest on November 1st will be the beautiful and definitely green diva, Mariel Hemingway, who recently did a written Q & A with GD Meg about her film project, Stop Monsanto. Expect some serious talk about why GMOs suck and Prop 37, which will be voted on the following week.
Had a great time on Ebru Today talking about how to detox our homes as we prepare to seal ourselves in for the colder months. I focused primarily on cleaning products because I think so many folks don’t realize just how toxic they can be and how important it is, especially when our homes are closed up during the colder season, to try to reduce our exposure to toxic chemicals.
I was introduced to a wonderful new film project that Mariel Hemingway is behind called Stop Monsanto. I’m excited about the film and hope you will be too. I had the opportunity to correspond with Ms. Hemingway about the film and the issues behind it (GMO/GE food).
What we learned back then was that the VOCs that impact our health are not regulated – WHAT?!? Only the ones that are harmful to the ozone are regulated. There are a lot of other chemicals in house paint that are NOT researched or regulated.
Alison currently resides in Brooklyn, New York and focuses on environmentally responsible work with interior spaces in New York City. You can imagine my excitement when Alison agreed to chat with me about green design, a topic that is just now finally coming to the forefront of the industry.
Designer Joan Vorderbruggen is a multi-talented lady. When she’s not creating beautiful shop window displays from reclaimed materials, she’s sewing up stunning dresses out of vintage slips.
You would think that being a Green Diva would mean that I celebrated Earth Day every day. I don’t know whether I celebrate daily, but I do try. The truth is when you’ve been living this lifestyle for as long as I have, this annual Earth Day frenzy can get a little silly.
Listen, laugh & learn with the Green Divas (and Green Dude Paul) anytime Podcast here! A rather fun show this week. Perhaps it was all that talk about food and natural and creative ways to dye easter eggs. Or maybe it was Meghan Van Dyk, being in the studio with us for the whole show. Not […]
We had a remarkably good time this week, especially since our feature interview was with our favorite Green Reaper, Elizabeth Fournier, green funeral director and author of All Men Are Cremated Equal: My 77 Blind Dates. Seriously. You gotta love a woman who has a book with this title! She introduced us to a new eco-friendly way of […]
First of all, we had a special Green Diva in Training, 11-year-old, Zoe Marcus in the studio and she should give us all some hope that the next generation is ON IT when it comes to being aware of the environment and what we need to do to be more sustainable. Check out her Facebook page […]
