Great time with my Trini sister @AnyaAyoungChee for @HelloBeautiful. Love how she continues to use her platform to uplift and highlight others, especially the underserved. Link in the bio for the dopeness. #AnyaAyoungChee#DanielleJames#Interview
Ok but can we talk about how TOBACCO is legal yet it's been proven to be linked to cancer and deaths, yet marijuana hasn't? How alcohol has been proven to be more dangerous than marijuana, yet it's the legal one? Just a thought. 🤔 (btw no guys I don't smoke, but I'm not against it and wouldn't mind trying one day)
I am grateful that I have a sister who is as dedicated as I am to animal welfare. I thought my advocacy and active activism life will be on hold after the car crash, coz I lost my means of transportation. Thankfully, my sister Juvel @scenic_owl always invites me to go with her. Carpooling is a gift!
And thank you to @laanimalsave , my vegan family, whose passion keeps me going, especially on my hard days.

Ai Weiwei (@aiww) with the artistic assist during our less than 4-minute photo session @Hirshhorn Museum on June 26, 2017, in #WashingtonDC . His exhibit – Ai Weiwei: Trace at Hirshhorn – opens June 27 and features floor coverings made entirely of #Legos that show a patchwork of portraits of #CivilRights , #HumanRights , and #FreeSpeech advocates. #AIWeiwei is thought to be "one of the China’s most provocative living artists." Accompanying the #Trace exhibit, Weiwei created a 360-degree wallpaper installation titled "The Plain Version of the Animal That Looks Like a Llama but Is Really an Alpaca” - intricate patterns that reveal #surveillance cameras, handcuffs, chains, and #Twitter bird logos. #artist#activist#DoSomething @wangfenfen
People are starting to realize that hemp cars are going to be a wave of the future. It may be hard to imagine a car manufactured from grass, as it may seem to lack the sturdy component needed for a functional car. However, scientists claim that cars made from plants are actually an upcoming trend. Researchers in England and Australia are working towards developing materials made from plants such as elephant grass and hemp that are to replace different car components made from metal and plastic. According to these scientists, the plant-based car materials are not only biodegradable, but can also enhance fuel efficiency, as they weigh nearly 30% less than the materials that are currently used in making car components. A lighter car generally needs less fuel to drive it.
Industrial hemp for car construction
Building car components including the outer shell using hemp could lower the ever increasing number of rusting car body parts from old lots. Hemp fibers are thoroughly cleaned then heated and sometimes blended with a few biodegradable plastic to increase their overall strength. They are then molded to form hardened filling and paneling. Hemp is also considered to be significantly cheaper to produce when compared to the manufacture of other materials such as steel.

@Regrann from @fat_hippie_vegan - "Unfortunately, NARS chose profits over ethics: "We are launching in China later this year and local regulations mandate animal testing on imported cosmetics. We have updated our website FAQ to reflect this global expansion." NARS and their parent company Shiseido are letting cruelty-free customers down. 👎
So if you used to love NARS and no longer wish to support them, here are some alternatives: - Jouer
- Stila (recently cruelty-free)
- Smashbox (recently cruelty-free)
- Kat Von D
- Marc Jacobs Beauty (yes, they're cruelty-free!) I've removed NARS from our cruelty-free list and won't be purchasing from this brand in the future. I hope you'll join me and let your friends know about this change as well!" Via 'Cruelty-Free Kitty' Facebook
Please spread the word so fellow vegans and animal lovers know not to buy from this company any longer!
