January 2016 marks the 7th year of www.Priscillawoolworth.com! My message over the years has always been the same: if we can learn to live a more sustainable lifestyle by wasting less, paying closer attention to what we eat, eating a more plant based diet and reducing our exposure to toxins by the products we use at home, I hope that together, we can inspire others to do it as well. Continue to use your buying power to change the world! Recently, I shared some of my thoughts about my lifestyle and my work with Brandettes: brandettes.com.

I always find it so inspiring to read news stories about how polluted areas are being cleaned up and reborn. This story is about a floating garden that cleans as it grows in one of most polluted waterways in US, the Gowanus canal in NYC.
This start up in Oakland, California is so fantastic! They sell ‘imperfect’ produce to reduce waste, such as the six billion pounds of produce that ends up in our overfilled landfills.
