ENLIGHTENED DETOXIFICATION In keeping with our theme of “saving the world” and living clean and green, we depart from our usual inebriation to give detoxification a go: a spring cleaning of the body, if you will. After all, a little bit of juice never hurt anyone did it? The thing with detoxification though–or the version Read More

W is for Water
It’s impossible to fully articulate the scope of the world’s water crisis in the limited space afforded but the issue has become an increasingly troubling in recent years, swiftly rising to the forefront of global problems we human beings face. Alongside climate change and terrorism, the scarcity of drinking water is a concern that field scientists believe to be at a much more critical state than what was previously thought.
The degradation of water sources and water quality in Thailand, as in many other Asian countries, is impacted further by an increasing population, urbanization, and agricultural and industrial expansion. Adding to the plight of the aforementioned issues that affect the quality of drinking water, the country’s changing climate patterns has led to even more instability and greater challenges for the people and infrastructure, particularly in the Central Plain, where Bangkok is located.

V is for Vegan
Text by Karta Healy
Having been born and raised vegetarian, I became vegan at age 13 out of choice. I believe you must listen to your body and feed it what it needs. Not just what your mouth WANTS. I am a very biased advocate of going V. I don't want to guilt-trip anyone, as there is enough evidence of the damage meat eating does to the animals (obviously!) and to the planet’s ecosystem, let alone your body! Videos like Cowspiracy and the fine work PETA does should convert those with a heart and an ounce of compassion...for all the adorable fuzzy creatures you freaks devour daily (Oops, sorry, not my style) ... I like to inspire. I prefer to share hope and host as many vegan potlucks as I can.
The questions I am asked often are: "Where do you get your protein from? So you only eat vegetables? Don't you get bored of it?" The standard answers I give are: "I never think about what I eat; I follow my cravings, calculate nothing, and yet I am a fully grown man with no deficiencies (dietary at...

U is for Urban Utopia
As cities around the world struggle with sustainability issues under the pressure of swelling populations, particularly poverty, air pollution, and waste management, forward thinking businesses and governments are incorporating sustainable design that aims to address pressing urban issues.
In 2015, France joined countries including Germany, Australia, Japan, and Canada to pass legislation mandating that rooftops on certain new buildings be partially covered in plants or solar panels. Green rooftops have an isolating effect, helping reduce the amount of energy needed to heat a building in winter and cool it in summer. They also retain rainwater, thus helping reduce problems with runoff, while favoring biodiversity and giving birds a place to nest in the urban jungle.
