The Pay Gap

A while back I wrote the first post for a subject I’ve been learning more and more about in this sustainability journey: intersectional feminism. Ever since I know what it is, I call myself a feminist. I then wrote about what intersectional feminism is. People seem to never really know what it is when I talk to them (and now, I can refer to this post). And even more often, people seem to not see why intersectional feminism is necessary. That’s why I am writing posts on every problem we have when it comes to why feminism is necessary. Today I am starting! Let’s talk about: the pay gap.

The Best Vegan Products – Fish

There are many vegan alternatives to animal products on the market. Vegan egg, vegan tuna, vegan steak. Amazing! The more the merrier I’d say. However, some vegan products are better than others.

News + What You Can Do About It | October 2021

Mainstream news in The Netherlands is depressing. It has to be shocking, sensational and topical. Because of this news gets negative and people who only follow this news feel like the world around them is changing in a bad way. They lose trust in people and companies and they lose hope.

Ethical Veganism

Today, as I am writing this post, it is my vegan anniversary. I finally looked it up and put it in my agenda yesterday. Such a coincidence! I always knew that it was a very random date since I just decided one day: I’m doing it. I’m going vegan! As I said, the day that I am writing this, it’s been 4 years! Woohoo. I thought that therefore it would be good to write about the very base of this lifestyle I’ve had ever since: ethical veganism.

The Urge to Buy Cheap Food

All things I do when trying to life a sustainable and ethical lifestyle feel good. When I’m in the train instead of the airplane I feel good. When I buy secondhand clothing instead fast fashion I feel good. When I get broken stuff repaired instead of buying something new I feel good. However, there is one things that always gives me this shock. For a split second it does not feel good. That happens when I buy food. There’s always this feeling I get in the checkout. Did I spend too much money? Not at all. But why do I have this urge to buy cheap food?

6 Secondhand Clothing Items I Bought

It’s been a while since I shared my last secondhand clothing finds. 8 months to be precise. I wish I didn’t buy any clothing since then.

But as you know me, I bought these items secondhand. Today I want to share these purchases with you. Let me show you the 6 secondhand clothing items that I bought the past months.

Pro-Healthy but not Pro-Diet

Today it’s time for me to make a clear distinction. I talk about health quite a bit on this blog. When it comes to policies, personal behavior or societal behavior I usually have a clear opinion on health. I want people to be as healthy as they can be, because I believe that this makes life for all of us better. However, I did not realize that the term healthy is not a very clear term and that some people take the wrong assumptions when I use the term healthy. That’s why I want to clearly elaborate on this today: I am pro healthy but absolutely not pro diet.
