The last piece I published in 2015 was also one of my favorites. I covered how a public health crisis in London, incorrectly attributed to miasma, ended up saving lives (even though the science was wrong!).
Aw, this one was so kind! What a great way to end 2015:
Starre Vartan, founder and editor of Eco-Chick, was one of the early bloggers and writers around the eco-fashion space. She has been out there building content and educating people. Education has always been a really important propellant in driving this movement forward, so I applaud her work.
I’ve written lots of articles in my time, and I’ve had plenty go viral, but I think this is the first one I’ve ever had to go super-viral! And it’s one of my most favorite things I’ve written about too. Check out the full article on MNN.com here.
Check out my first contribution to Conde Nast Traveler: “Italy’s Free Coffee Tradition and Other Acts of Kindness” What an inspiring way to start the New Year!
As a long-term environmentalist, I have followed Paul Hawken’s work with interest for some time. Though I don’t always agree with him on every issue, I admire his forward-thinking writing and his new project, Drawdown, sounds amazing. Read all about it in the interview I did with him for the December, 2014 issue of Metropolis.
My second piece for Pacific Standard is about how long the effects of rape can last (hint: it’s a lifetime) and why (spoiler: PTSD).
I took a deep dive into feminism, the law and the real-life repercussions of domestic violence on both the battered and the batterers for Pacific Standard. A difficult, intense article to research and write, but fascinating.
My line of original photographs printed on organic cotton fabrics is now available on Ecohabitude. I’d love your support for my project and they DO make great holiday gifts!
