Surprisingly not clickbait conversations with Jane Goodall and other inspiring women leading the fight against climate change around the world.
“Sacred lands are at stake, but our lives are even more sacred than that!” Queen Quet Marquetta L. Goodwine talks about her advocacy work with the United Nations, the history of the Gullah/Geechee, and how we can help after Hurricane Florence.
This summer, Starbucks announced their plan to go straw-less by 2020 with the help of new, sippy cup-style lids made of a plastic called polypropylene.
