I cannot believe that I’ve had actual arguments these last few months with climate change skeptics! There has been STRONG scientific evidence that proves climate change to be true. In 2013, an analysis on climate change found that 97% of peer reviewed papers took a position that human activity was causing climate change. Issues arise when the press and politicians “cherry pick” individual scientific studies that back a specific position while ignoring the scientific community’s consensus. Can we stop wasting time arguing about something that has already been established as scientific truth and focus on fixing the problem please? 🙏 . . . . . . . . . . . . #climatechange #everydayclimatechange #nature #sedona #arizona #globalwarming #conservation #everydayeverywhere #climatebreakdown #climateemergency #lovenature #fortheloveofnature #greenearth

I love how buildings and spaces let us re-live the past and rather than demolishing an old building, we repurpose it. Yes, I am very into recycling, reusing, repurposing something “old”. @themillshk also features local artists and supports local businesses (some which focuses on sustainability). Great place to explore and grab some food and drinks with friends 😊 📸 by @shadoww_l . . . . . . . . . . . #themillshk #urbanrenewal #urbanism #tsuenwan #artexhibit #art #hongkong #hki g #ilovehongkong #explorehongkong #discoverhongkong #travelasia #wanderlust #heritage

Cute British countryside hotel! I am very tired and mentally exhausted from travelling and work the last two weeks. But I always remind myself to be grateful for the opportunities and for the exposure. 📸 by @ishyvi

I’ve been shopping exclusively second hand for over a year now in attempt to be less wasteful and to be more ethical. I have 3 strict rules when I shop: 1. The material must be vegan 2. The quality must be good 3. It must fit well All these rules I set in attempt to prevent me from throwing it away after a few months of wear. I encourage everyone to try second hand and consign their unwanted clothes. It’s honestly been such a fun experience! And no my closer is not just full of clothes from the 60s... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #sustainability #sustainablefashion #gogreen #bricklane #vintage #secondhand #vintagemarket #spitalfields #london #explorelondon #vintagegoods #shopvintage #ecofashion #fashionrev

A few years ago, this girl was telling me about her fitness and weight loss journey. She told me , “I used to be a little chubby, like you.” Up until then, I didn’t think of myself as “chubby”. This statement alone made me so angry it led me into an “emergency weight loss stage”. I started to work out like crazy and even though I was really against diet pills, I started to look into them. Now looking back at my reaction towards that conversation, I just want to laugh at myself. Why do I let other people’s words trigger me? Let these negative emotions drift away. Btw, this incident led me into a wonderful happy vegan lifestyle. So if anything, I should thank her! 📸 by @iamjtee . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #adventure #doyoutravel #travelgram #hiking #explorehongkong #discoverhongkong #getoutstayout #wanderlust #agameoftones #hkig #wildernessculture #hongkong #naturephotography #naturelovers #keepitwild #stayandwander #ilovehongkong

Why does every other conversation about me being vegan have to be about the flaws in my lifestyle? Or about how little choice in life I have? Or about how bland my food tastes? What about my motivation and intentions? The reason I chose to be vegan is for social good and to reduce unnecessary harm through my lifestyle. I cannot control the number of bugs that got killed in my broccoli. But just because I cannot control every factor, doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t be vegan. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #vegansofhongkong#veganphx #vegan #vegansofig#kindkitchen #bekind #crueltyfree#loveanimals #govegan#friendsnotfood #moralcompass#plantpowered #bethevoice #earthlings#bethechange #veganlife #veganhotspots #feedfeedvegan #happycow

Vegan food never fails to be deliciously creative. It was satisfying to hear people say “mmmhm...so good!!” The food was very refreshing for all of us after many late Deliveroo nights. A very late post but thanks again @tangtiffanyy for arranging and @cheftinabarrat for the amazing food!

I am going through a cactus and succulents obsession phase although one of the cactuses in my apartment recently shrivelled and died 😭. I am learning to become a better cactus mom. 📸 by @shadoww_l . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #discoverarizona #explorearizona #dbg #arizona #desertbotanicalgardens #succulents #cactus #phoenix #phx #cactilover #desertbloom #travelarizona #visitarizona #desert #wanderlust #cactusgarden #exploremore

Replying @shadoww_l ‘s post and want to thank you for being my travel companion, rental car driver, and IG husband 😍. I know I can be a difficult person to travel with sometimes. I do too much research and I want to go to so many places. You have been such a trooper even when I am being stubborn. Thanks for also hearing my rants about family and work. You da best ❤️! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #discoverarizona #explorearizona #arcosanti #sunset #goldenhour #chess #arizona #desertvibes #vsco #vscocam #agameoftones #azlife #murica #visitarizona #exploremore #wanderlust #arizonacollective #weroamarizona

Love the cute desert palms style in Arizona. I’m having fun putting together a list of places to visit in Arizona for our guests 😉. 📸 @shadoww_l . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #explorearizona #discoverarizona #arizona #goodyearaz #resort #palmtrees #wanderlust #arizonaliving #igersphx #pursuepretty #desertvibes #beautifuldestinations #doyoutravel #shetravels #exploremore #liveauthentic #thehappynow #visitarizona #azgrammers

Happy Belated International Women’s Day! Here is a snippet from one of my favourite poems, “If I Should Have a Daughter,” by Sarah Kay. “There'll be days like this, my momma said. When you open your hands to catch and wind up with only blisters and bruises; when you step out of the phone booth and try to fly and the very people you want to save are the ones standing on your cape; when your boots will fill with rain, and you'll be up to your knees in disappointment. And those are the very days you have all the more reason to say thank you...” 📸 by @shadoww_l . . . . . . . . . . . . . #discoverarizona #explorearizona #dbg #arizona #desertbotanicalgardens #succulents #womensday #iwd2019 #iwd #balanceforbetter #cactus #whoruntheworld #phoenix #phx #cactilover #desertbloom #travelarizona #visitarizona

Arcosanti I want to spend more time to read and learn more about this project. I believe projects like this is really inspiring for creatives and we have the responsibility to consider the impact of the work that we put out into the world. There are a lot of important challenges that needs to be addressed in the world today. What I’m most passionate about is the problem of sustainability and environmental issues. When comparing this project to how a city like Hong Kong is designed, I asked the question of whether density really helps with environment and efficiency. Arcosanti aims to encourage minimalistic lifestyle over mass consumption. Again, another topic that I am passionate about. I really encourage people to visit this place and have conversations of how we live and consume day to day and reflect on our own actions! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #arcosanti #architecture #consumption #consumerism #environmentallyfriendly #sustainability #gogreen #archidaily #minimalism #arizona #az #discoverarizona #explorearizona #wanderlust #slowliving #simplicity
