Ozone Day, every day

If you are a millennial or a baby boomer, you have heard of the Ozone layer, and how we’ve been opening a huge hole in it for years now. The truth is, that it’s not really a hole, but more of an ozone depletion we are creating around certain areas of the planet. But what is the ozone layer in the first place? According to national geographic, “The ozone layer is a thin part of the Earth’s atmosphere that absorbs almost all of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet light”.

2020: a year for the environment

Meet RACHEL CARSON

2020 is the year of questioning. Bold affirmation, am I right? But the truth is… everyone had a lot of time to think about life, its meaning, the world ending, where are we going as a race? And all those philosophical questions we pondered on while being quarantined. Well, I’m sure most of you got to the conclusion that the environment was suffering… Yes, it got a breath of fresh air during the last months… but this doesn’t mean we can go back to our life as if nothing changed, because it did. We are now aware of how what we do affects our planet, and it’s something we should consider while making everyday choices.

If not google says: verb, reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original.

We had the opportunity of chatting with Patrick Lingle, General Manager at Planta (one the restaurants that was featured on that post) about how a sustainable restaurant works. Is it about the food? The experience? The ambient? How to balance flavor with “good for the planet” ingredients. Let me tell you… we’ve got answers!

GET THAT SUMMER GLOW and take care of your skin naturally

As you probably know, summer is here! That means lots of beach fun, and, rain… because, we’re in Miami. But rain doesn’t mean that UV rays won’t get to you, also, we live in a very humid place that tends to make our skin dryer than usual. This is why we wanted to take this opportunity to talk about skin care, and how important it really is.

Traveling with a purpose

Wanderlust (n.) is a strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world. Being in quarantine in the mid of a global pandemic has us thinking about different ideas, and I don’t know about you, but traveling and discovering other places has been one of the top ones for us. This is why we’ve been researching for the best hotels around the globe that fit our standards, and yes, we might sound “high-maintenance” but taking care of the planet its not something that stops on vacation. Because of this we wanted to share with you some of the amazing sustainable, eco-friendly places we’ve found and where we want to go once traveling gets safer:
