Wishful Thinking

As I'm trying to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle, I'm finding out that making the right choices for both myself and the planet is not as hard as I had anticipated. I love reading and finding out new things about living green and healthily and then later applying this newfound knowledge into my own life.  Whenever I come to the realization that the things I'm craving for - to eat, wear, read or consume in any other way - are actually eco-friendly, and not intentionally so, it makes me very happy. So today I wanted to share a few such things that are on my mind these days.

Homemade bruschetta - which I learned how to make from my cousin-in-law last summer - is something that I prepared quite a few times while in Italy because it was quick, easy, and a perfectly light meal on those hot Italian summer days. This particular day when I took the pictures, I enjoyed it alongside a hard-boiled egg, which made for a wonderfully healthy lunch.

Naked Fashion by Safia Minney - founder of People Tree - is a book that I found out about just a few days ago from Ecouterre, and one that I would love to add to my growing collection of eco-minded books - here's hoping that Amazon will make it available for purchase soon - even though I haven't finished all the books on my summer reading list just yet. Looking through the contents table (available on Amazon) it looks like it is quite a comprehensive book on the subject, filled with a great deal of information as well as a variety of perspectives from notable people in the industry.


  1. It looks iresting!
