How To Design the Best Healthy Vegan Home

How To Design the Best Healthy Vegan Home🧚‍♀️ We all want to be happy, healthy and strong don’t we?  We don’t wake up in the morning and shout out “today, I want to be sad, weak and unmotivated!” It’s scientifically proven that most of us crave positivity. Of course we do!  However, we still seek confirmation from the world of science. I recall years ago when  “baloney sandwiches are bad for your health!” made headlines. REALLY??  I had absolutely no  idea that chemically injected, processed, dyed animal meat byproducts weren’t part of an ideal diet for humans! Shocking! Btw, i had to look up the spelling of baloney. Yes it’s been that long since I ate a baloney sandwich. I think the last time was when I was a kid in summer camp. Back to “how to design the best healthy vegan home.” Watch this recorded webinar I did for the fabulous EGE Carpet Showroom in London about the subject (of vegan design..not baloney sandwiches 😏).

Interview: Safe Healthy Home Fabrics

Safe Healthy Home Fabrics. We all want to be happy, healthy & strong. We do our best to eat the right foods and exercise. But many of us are completely in the dark about how our environment can make us sick. Cancer, infertility, neurological issues are just a few of the illnesses that continual contact with chemicals can cause. It’s incredibly frightening to know that we, unknowingly are buying furniture, sheets and fabrics for our homes and work areas that are harming ourselves, our babies and our families. Watch this interview with leading textile expert Patty Grossman. She and I covered how to choose Safe Healthy Home Fabrics.

Health – COVID 19 & Our Dogs & Cats

Health – COVID 19 & Our Dogs & Cats.  I had the pleasure of speaking with Veterinarian Dr. Samantha Saunders about COVID 19. Dr. Saunders is PETA’S  Corona Virus Researcher and she also has her doctorate in Corona Virology.  I learned about the theory of how COVID – 19 pandemic began. It seems to be linked to wet markets, bats and Pangolins. We spoke about whether or not our pets, including cats, dogs and companion animals can transfer the virus to us or we to them. Watch the interview. It’s filled with great information.
