Transitioning from unhealthy to healthier and more beneficial snacks can be difficult to do. It’s so much easier to grab that bag of chips or an already packaged processed meal. It can also be just a habit of ours, we want things fast. We don’t have time. But is it really that we don’t have time or we don’t attempt to make the time to nourish our bodies with the right stuff?

Here’s one helpful tip for you to start making time to prep those healthy meals. Let’s say you spend 30 minutes on the phone. Scrolling through your favorite social media app. Try cutting that in half. Now you will be spending more half of that time making a snack or prepping a small meal for your next workday.

Second Annual Ocean’s Coastal Cleanup 2017

Second Annual Ocean’s Coastal Cleanup 2017

Hello! My name is Abril Esparza. Born and raised in the Monterey County. On the weekends I drive to the coast and take a jog or walk by the ocean. After my jog I come across trash so I always take a bag with me to pick it up.

My brother blessed me with my fourth nephew this year. For me, an aunt to four little ones, has been life changing and also has enlightened me to see things through their eyes. To think about their future. I have been diagnosed with PCOS( Polycystic ovary syndrome) So, i been taking care of my body more than I have in my life. Lately, I’ve asked myself, “people do so much to take care of their body and their families bodies, to be healthy, to live as long as they can. But we don’t do much to help keep another important body clean, the ocean.
This thought came to me because of my nephew, Ethan Ocean. I am helping my sister raise my nephew, Ocean, teach him as much as i can. teach him how to eat healthy. I have this tiny ocean that will grow and become a bigger ocean. I want to teach Ocean how to keep the worlds ocean clean and beautiful as I know one day he will be. And so I thought it would be great to create the event on the day of Ocean’s birthday. Like I said I want to make it a year round cleanup event  for adults and kids. But my main focus is to teach the kids on how to be good to the earth and help keep the earth clean as possible


I need help buying material we need for that day. Such as trash bags, bins, gloves, etc. I would also like the kids to leave with a small goodie bag. It would mean so much to me. So whatever amount you can donate is great!

IKEA launches first kitchen units made from recycled plastic bottles and reclaimed wood

IKEA launches first kitchen units made from recycled plastic bottles and reclaimed wood

Life & Soul Magazine

IKEA has launched its first ever eco kitchen entirely made from recycled plastic bottles and reclaimed industrial wood.

Made in collaboration with Swedish design studio, Form Us With Love, the KUNGSBACKA units utilise 25 plastic bottles for every 40x80cm unit.

With a suggested lifespan of 25 years, the kitchen’s main structure is formed from reclaimed wood, while the coating is made from plastic bottles. Form Us With Love opted for a simple silhouette in a matt grey to create a “timeless” design. As with most IKEA kitchens, the cabinets are modular, so they can be arranged to fit any space.


Describing the design process, John Löfgren, creative director at Form Us With Love, said: “We wanted it to feel like a black T-shirt, tuned to fit right, practical and still precious.”

With sustainable products often expensive to produce because of the extensive research and development required, IKEA and Form Us With Love had to…
