Sustainable Nashville: Where to Eat, Where to Shop, Where to Stay

Nashville has plenty to offer the conscious consumer: locavore restaurants, great shopping, and good cocktails, all with a down-home vibe. I'm pretty sure Brooklyn hipsters stole their style from Nashville – mason jars, beards, flannel – yup, there's a lot to love.

    2 Sustainable Days in Barcelona Guide: Green Hotels, Organic Food, Things to Do

    Our stay in Barcelona was far too short. We planned for three days, but we had to leave early for Ibiza, which left us two days to cram in as much as possible. Which is especially hard in Barcelona, because tourist attractions involve long lines and an abundance of patience. I wish we had eaten...

    3 Sustainable Days in Amsterdam: Green Hotels, Organic Restaurants, Ethical Shopping, and Things to Do

        Updated in April 2017. I fell in love with Amsterdam within just a few hours of arriving to the city. I know the exact moment when I started pondering whether I could actually move there.

    1 Sustainable Day in Paris: Organic Food, Eco-Friendly Shopping, and Green Hotels

    Sustainable City Guide: Where to Eat and What to Do in Miami

    I wasn’t sure if I would like Miami. In my mind, it was an overpriced tourist destination where people go to spend too much money on bottles at the club and really expensive, really short skirts. But Miami is actually quite sustainable! When I decided to take a last-minute weekend trip with my girlfriends, I managed...

    Local Food, Rare Wildlife, and Pristine Nature: What to do on Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

    Green City Guide: Frolicking About the Sustainable Joshua Tree for Desert and Denim

    I had just finished interviewing Hall Newbegin of the sustainable wilderness perfumery Juniper Ridge on the phone, when he invited me out to his trade show, Desert and Denim, in Joshua Tree. Now, I’m not so into trade shows. Usually they’re held in large, fluorescent conference centers, vast warehouses filled with booth of unsustainable items. Every time I go,...

    Sustainable City Guide: Where to Shop in Boston for Ethical and Eco-Friendly Finds

    So, you only have one day to do Boston? I gotcha. I can’t speak to the touristy stuff, but I’m sure you can turn to any number of people to find out about that oyster restaurant and in which mom-and-pop store to get a delicious (albeit not organic) pastry. I’m here to point you in...
