WHY POLYPHENOLS?

Mulberries, Aronia cherries, and Blackberries contain powerful micronutrients called polyphenols. Polyphenols, in fact, are what give berries and other plants their dark color.

BEHIND THE SCENES AT SIMPLY STRAWS

Over 500 million plastic straw are used and disposed of every day in the USA alone!!! Simply Straws makes reusable glass straws that are durable and dishwasher safe. Just check this video to see for yourself how strong these straws are!! #simplystraws wants to help eliminate the absurd amount of plastic that ends up in all the wrong places. Plastic does not ever break down, it just continues to live in smaller and smaller pieces that end up in sea animals and birds. How sad is that?? So, who is with me today and want to #pledgeagainstplasticstraws and #stopsucking ?? 🌏🙏🏻💙

when good things go viral

WHEN PEOPLE #STOPSUCKING TOGETHER 

I am proud to be an ambassador for Simply Straws because they are a responsible brand, with an aim to make this world a better place. By educating people about how harmful plastics, and especially single-use plastics, are for the environment and by providing us with a reusable alternative, they are truly an inspiration to me. Their products are so elegant and I love bringing my straws on my travels. Recently the news channel Buzzfeed created a video where one of the employees challenged her co-workers to stop using plastic straws for a week. The #stopsucking was used to get people motivated to jump on the challenge. Co-founder of Simply Straws, Chanelle Sladics and I went up to LA and handed out Simply straws glass straws to everyone who joined the challenge. A few months later, the video they made has gone viral and been seen over 10 million times online!!  am so grateful and happy to see good things go viral. That is in my opinion what we need - not something silly thing about who married who or what celebrity had a baby. I feel that the anti-single-use-plastic movement is finally picking up some well deserved momentum. In 2002 Bangladesh became the first county to ban the use of thin plastic bags. That is almost 20 years ago now!! With more individuals waking up to the problem and governments jumping onboard, I see a brighter light at the end of the tunnel. Taiwan has for example a goal is to ban plastic straws entirely by 2030. I am so proud to be a voice and extension of Simply Straws and help spread the message to help eliminate plastic straws. So what do you say? Are you ready to jump onboard and #stopsucking ?!!

WHY WE NEED TO STOP SUCKING!

By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. It is fair to say that our natural playgrounds are being polluted and compromised on a daily basis. One of the biggest issues is single-use plastic, like plastic straws. They are used for minutes, then disposed and they never really break down. Therefore they become poison to our marine life, our environment and eventually to us as we eat the fish.

#PLEDGEAGAINSTPLASTICSTRAWS

WHAT IS THE SOLUTION?

SIMPLY STRAWS REUSABLE GLASS STRAWS

SIMPLY STRAWS REUSABLE GLASS STRAWS

We go through soooooooo many plastic straws each day (Americans alone use over 500.000 each day - yes that's almost two straws per capita) - I am officially shocked!

This is a real problem, that needs our attention so we can work on solutions to reverse it. The good thing is that radical things are happening in the STRAWLESS world.  Adrian Grenier (the very good looking actor from Entourage) has started an NPO called Lonely Whale Foundation and they have launched a HUGE campaign that is going viral around disposable plastic straws!! Together with Simply Straws, they challenged me to #StopSucking. Now I'm challenging WHOEVER reads this, to join me and put attention on this issue.

WHAT ARE SOME ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY ALTERNATIVES TO PLASTIC STRAWS?

Maybe you are a sucker for straws and are wondering about earth-friendly alternatives to plastic straws. I was personally never I big user of straws, but when I learned that they can help protect our teeth from stains, sensitivity and erosion, I was intrigued. When I realized we go through soooooooo many plastic straws each day (Americans alone use over 500.000 each day - yes that's almost two straws per capita) I was shocked! As I don't want to create more waste just so I can sip my drinks, I started seeking out reusable alternatives.

Simply straws are at the forefront in providing reusable glass straws that can be used over and over and over again. They go in the dishwasher and frankly, the beverages taste so much better when sipped through glass, compared to plastic, paper or aluminum. Glass does not leak any chemicals that harm our hormone system and to me that makes so much sense. I simply don't want chemicals in my body. Learn more about the  Simply Straws collection and find out what their best-selling straws are.

Use your voice to be a force for good. The less plastic we use, the less end up in our oceans and marine life. Are you in or are you gonna keep sucking? :)

Food For Fall

Fall is a special time of the year. The trees start breaking down the chlorophyll in their leafs and we get to see what's hiding beneath; red, yellow, orange - the most beautiful color combinations to just fall in love to. Fall to me is also about cuddling up in front of the fire inside and making yummy food. Here is a simple recipe for a healthy lunch snack that is easy to make and taste so gooooood. 

- Rye crackers - avocado - chick peas - radish - sprouts - some seeds - fresh lemon - cucumber

Treat yourself with a hot milk tea made with cashews, sprinkled with turmeric, cinnamon and maple syrup.

Happy fall :)
