In a small town of Tržič (Slovenia), an old cotton spinning mill now houses the Shoe Doctor team. A cobbler workshop specializing on repairs of climbing, hiking and mountaineering shoes. We chat with founder Miha Jazbec a third generation cobbler/climber about their mission, care and repair.
Here are some of my favourite ones. I love podcasts, but I am definitely not an expert. I mostly listen to them while travelling, cooking, editing photos … and some of them had a big impact on the way I …
They say a picture is worth a thousand words and I very much agree. That´s why I am back (after a while) with some photos from the Global climate strike. As you probably already know Salzburg is one of Austria’s …
Sometimes best trips are done without much planning. I´m not much of a trip planner anyways, actually, I´m pretty bad at it. 4 of us ladies, 1 big lady dogs, 1 small lady dog and a Twingo without AC. Do I need to say more? Here is our trip in some photos and video.
If we are trying to reduce our car use, limit the amount of water we waste, become more ‘energy-efficient’ and generally lessen our environmental impact, we must also examine the most important factor of our personal ecological footprint: what we eat. Here are 5 reasons why I´m vegan for cca. 5-6 years and why my passion for it is only getting stronger.
My priorities a consumer and a human are to not harm anything or anybody with my choices, create less waste and choose the healthiest options for myself. That´s why I try to buy as many used products as I can, avoid food waste and make sure to choose cruelty free (animal or human) products when buying anything new. I have definitely not written about veganism enough. But we reached climate crisis and I can´t keep my mouth shut anymore.
In honour of Fashion Revolution Week I want to show you that you can find cheap, sustainable, unique and beautiful thrifted clothes. Trends come and go and we don´t need to destroy our planet for that. You can find all the trendy or basic pieces in 2nd hand shops, you just need to look better. Plus it will make the planet and also your wallet really happy.
Today is Earth Day and also the start of Fashion Revolution Week. Your voice is a powerful tool. Together we can demand change, clean up the mess, say slow down, we have enough.
Using less plastic and switching to eco products it takes time, especially when so many brands are greenwashing and making us believe we are buying truly eco products from them. Using only a few products made that transfer and cleaning so much easier, healthier and cheaper for me. This is how.
I´m not here to tell you to stop flying or to judge you if you do. I would just like you to know the real price of your flights, of all your flights. And that you are not too small to make a difference, your carbon footprint matters, your choices matter. Your future, my future and the future of next generations matter.
What is a carbon footprint? How do you calculate it? And what you can do to lower it and reach a worldwide target to combat climate change. I believe everyone can be part of creating a carbon-neutral future.
In this month I will (try my best to) create a series of post for you that will hopefully answer some questions or give you useful tips for low impact living, sustainability, climate change, activism, veganism, fair fashion. Together we can find some eco-friendly, healthier and cheaper alternatives for all of us.
