Spent the day at #pbwc2018 listening to influential women and leaders speak about what they're doing to change gender dynamics in the workforce and how far we've come and have yet to come as women! great experience, from panelists that included ashley judd and #metoo movement to manal al-sharif who has spent years to finally get saudi arabia to allow women the right to drive (as of june 24, 2018!) really puts things into perspective and how lucky we are to live in this country that while progressive, still has a long way to go to represent women equally. i'm lucky to work for an organization that recognizes this and is impacting that change! #standupliftup .
I'm so proud to be able to say @maxhellier and i now work exclusively with ethical and sustainable fashion brands. we've been lucky enough to work with some beauts since the beginning of this year. im so in love with @aikyou_lingerie 's beautiful fair trade intimates made with organic cotton. they also use second hand cardboard boxing and recyclable packaging. 🙌🏻❤️ #fashionrevolution#slowfashion stay tuned for @maxhellier and my full vegan fashion and food editorial featuring a whole bunch of vegan designers and eateries in lucuma issue 13

new blog post.
today's post doesn't have bright photos of me in cute outfits.
today's post is pulling back the curtain to the harsh reality behind the fast fashion industry.
today's post is the reason why i do what i do.
on this day five years ago, 1,100 lifeless bodies were found amidst the rubble, sewing machines, and name brand clothing of the rana plaza factory collapse in bangladesh.
it's hard to imagine that something as simple and materialistic as clothes could cause people to lose their lives. .
i say this not to guilt you, but to let you know. because two years ago, i didn't know. i had no idea that the clothes on my back came at such a high price. you might not have known either, but now you do. and i hope you'll join me in doing something about it!
in this article, i highlight what @fash_rev week is all about, and what you can do to create change! link in bio❤️

When you are cooking up some new recipes in your kitchen, you'll definitely need an apron. made from 100% organic cotton, local canadian designer @cottage_cloth uses plant based dyes on her hand blocked fabrics. gorgeous. •

all i can say is: you so ducking precious when you smile ♡
but this caption won’t be bout sel. it’s about sth serious affecting all of us and i wanna break the silence you know. so a new friend of mine inspired me to that ( so if you’re reading this thank you ♡) anyway..
we are here. on social media.
that means we have a phone/lepton.
probably enough food and an apartment (maybe not a big one but at least we have one). we go out and complain that we couldn’t get the newest iphone.
complain that we have homework (or a lot of work)
complain that we don’t get what we wanted.
but is that what we want really what we need? the answer is clear:no.
why did our generation did get so.. negative?
yes we may don’t have the best phone but we have one! we bought it with money. money other people are dreaming of to buy food. we complain about homework or generally work while other people wish they could go to school or work. why are we so ungrateful? let’s change this!
i am grateful for my family & friends. for my food, apartment, ability to go to school.. what are you grateful for?
we say ‘i’m sorry’ when we see that people died tragically but do we really mean it like this? instead of talking maybe you just should pray for them. don’t say it, just do it.
everyday people are dying in wars, in syria, countries in africa, america.. but we act like we are blind. why?
we only see the numbers. i see humans. let’s bring the humanity back that always get more and more lost. we care more about our appearance than about them? you’re saying ‘but we can’t change it anyway..’ you can! pray! donate!
treat others like you wish to be treated and i think you wouldn’t like to be treated like a number, one of hundreds and don’t even noticed.
so let’s pray, be grateful and happy. don’t see the negative sides of your life, you make it your own negative, see the positive sides.
stay positive. ❤️
i just needed to get that off my chest because.. society make our humanity get lost & positivity and so much more! let’s make a change. we are the change. 💕 -malaika🌼 #selenagomez#smile#positive#wearethechange#staypositive#begreatful

The changes worry civil rights groups, which point out that education secretary betsy devos has already rescinded guidances meant to protect students against s****l assaults on campuses and black and transgender students against bias.crediterin schaff for the new york times
I will never forget my experiences at marjory stoneman douglas high school and in the parkland community. this has easily been one of the most important things i have done with @backtrackvocals.
on sunday evening, we performed at a benefit concert for carmen schentrup... i am heartbroken that i will never get the chance to meet this beautiful soul who was president of her school’s a cappella club, a national merit scholarship finalist, and a loving daughter and friend ❤️ on monday, we surprised the choral students at msd and performed/conducted a workshop. it was haunting to walk the halls of the school in the midst of this tragedy, but also powerful to witness the love, support and perseverance of the students, faculty and staff.
it was truly an inspiration and honor to be a part of this community for the last two days, and even though i am headed back home now, my heart will forever be in parkland, and i am excited to do my part to keep the movement going strong and to continue spreading the love.
special thanks to @mikehinkle for coordinating this visit, to freshmen guidance counselor, deb work, for hosting us and being our temporary mother, and to the students, faculty and staff at msd for opening their hearts to us #msdstrong 💪
