Soap or Bleach to Kill Germs?

Soap or bleach to kill germs? That question seems to be popping up quite a bit. As a cruelty free designer, focusing on healthy & ethical design, it’s been difficult for me to use products like Clorox that contain bleach during this period.

Viruses: Humans, Animals & Karma

Viruses: Humans, Animals & Karma. The majority of us are consumed and scared about the spread of this new virus. Our lives, in the blink of an eye, have changed. Our routines have changed, we are hiding in our homes.  We no longer hug or kiss our friends and family. Every aspect of our life has changed.

I believe that every action has a reaction.  Karma exists and is real. The manner in which we have treated and continue to treat animals is despicable. It appears to be time for “payback.”  Our inhumane, unimaginable behavior is killing us, literally. If this isn’t a wake up call to stop killing animals so we can eat them or rob them of their skins,  then I don’t know what is. We can no longer hide behind the curtain of ignorance. We know the dark side of what goes on in factory farming. We also know the horrible outcome for animals and for humans.
