Interview with an Eco-Fashion Forward Thinker – Justine White from La Scarlet Fox

Posted on by Emily Uebergang Posted in EcoLiving | 2 Comments

I have been busting my inner organs in excitement to share with you this interview with one of my dear friends, Justine White.

She’s a model, stylista and entrepreneurial eco-fashion extraordinaire, to put it ever so humbly (it’s okay, that’s coming from my mouth). What I love about Justine is her commitment to the greater good; an ambition to succeed in this world but to do so carrying the world along with her for the ride. In an industry as fickle as fashion, this is no small feat and one that carries many challenges. Read more ..

Why we are not safe from Pesticides living in the city

If you think we only need to be concerned solely with pesticide exposure from conventionally sprayed fruits and vegetables, then think again.

When this article came out reporting on a study that New Yorkers are exposed to more pesticides than rural residents“, I almost brushed past it. Read more ..

E-waste Recycling and Can it Save the 21st Century - The Urban Ecolife

One word comes to mind when I think about our modern society.


Being the frugal eco-warrior that I am, I then think this.


Essentially, electronic waste.

When more people own mobile phones than toilets and toothbrushes, you know we’re onto something as a society. That was enough to make my eyes pop. Gees, think about all that open waste without toilets – that’s a lot of holes being dug… or not. Read more ..

Are energy vampires sucking the money from you in your home?

As an owner of a rather obnoxiously large television, it may come as a surprise to you that I don’t actually watch that much on it these days. In fact, most of the time, it just sits there on stand-by. BIG MISTAKE. Read more ..

Shocking Facts about Factory Farming vs Sustainable Farming

Posted on by Emily Uebergang Posted in EcoLiving | Leave a comment  

I’m a BIG believer in supporting the change makers of this world and also, personally living out the future that you want to see in the world. As in, living it out TODAY. As in NOW. As in, this very minute/second/millisecond/fleeting, momentary space in time. There’s no point in waiting for a ‘better’ tomorrow. Let’s face the law of logical sequencing in time; if you don’t make the changes today, there will be no results for you to see tomorrow. I think the odds are highly against us in experiencing a ‘Back to the Future‘ time warp. So if you want to see a better tomorrow, you better start making a better today for yourself. Read more ..

Would you survive a Zombie Apocalypse?

When people ask me what I’m into of late, a yellow liquidy substance literally dribbles down my leg as I geekishly declare my love for all things apocalyptic. This image that I’ve so eloquently painted for you reminds me of my brother’s ratbag of a Labrador that has yet to grow some balls and is still basking in his puppy phase where he can’t help but piss himself with excitement when a human comes outside to play. Lovely imagery.  Before you send me to the nut house, may I elaborate? Read more ..

Grass fed vs Grain fed beef and Why does it matter? - The Urban Ecolife

Just like any food you consume, it’s important to know where it’s coming from and what’s gone into the production of said food. Meat is no exception. With steak being a personal favourite treat of mine, let me explain why it is important to choose grass-fed vs grain-fed beef.
