Nothing like seeing a designer take matters into his own hands. Designer and artist @someguy.is is raising funds to produce & distribute disaster preparedness guides to San Fransisco residents (beginning with the most economically distressed neighborhoods first), offering key information for what to do pre- and post-disaster. . You might wonder, what’s the purpose of a printed brochure when we have the internet? Well, please consider this: in the aftermath of a disaster (an earthquake; or in the case of South Florida, a hurricane), electricity is down; internet service is down; cellphones and landlines go down. Your information sources are extremely limited which is why this printed guide is such a great idea. . “Basic Safety Net was created to address a gap in our approach to dealing with emergencies: what happens immediately after a major disaster, and how to prevent additional risks to health and property damage. . “These guides probably won't convince everyone to make their plan. Some will, but many will simply put the guide in a kitchen drawer, and that’s where we want them to end up. Because after a quake, you just might need to know how, or when, to shut off your gas. You might need to know how to purify water without electricity.” .

Wrote a manifesto about why Dream Nation was created. Read below. . I know there are a lot of good people on this planet. If you're reading this, then you're one of us. . Good people care about all living things. They want to leave this planet in better condition than when they discovered it. I am forming a #Lovernment and Dream Nation is it's humble home on the interwebs. A place for us to connect and find solutions. I'll develop Constitution soon. . During my short life span (I prob have 40 more years left if I am lucky) I'd like the years to be filled with spreading love, light, peace, and health. I'm here trying to make this journey on Spaceship Earth a little less painful for all. Free of war, pain, disease, oppression. I can't do it alone, that is why I created Dream Nation. It's also a great way to pass the time between episodes of @rickandmorty . Here are a few things that I'd like to see in my lifetime. 1: An Earth Peace treaty. 2: Use the tax money from medical cannabis to set up STEAM and meditation programs in public schools 3: Encourage corporations to help local communities. I think these are small changes that can have a big impact. . I'd like for everyone to live in LOVE. I hope we have this shift in consciousness before our next Nuclear Apocalypse. Btw, how are Nuclear Weapons still legal here? . I'm exhausted from waking up and reading about terrorist attacks and hate. I'd like to increase the vibration on this planet. Tune everyone to LOVE. It is the only way to survive. Everything that we do each day affects others. From our choice of words to how we spend our money. We must amplify LOVE and bring this planet into a more harmonious frequency. Love, it's powerful stuff. Be the change you want to see in the world. I believe in you. . . . . . #sustainability #podcast #podcasts #consciousness #conscious #environment #STEM #medicalcannabis #cannabiscommunity #cannabis #love #startup #socialimpact #socialchange #environmentalist #frequency #highfrequency #lightworker #inspire #diversity #manifesto

💄💋👄I’m totally a lip color girl! Give me a reason to wear that bold lip color! 💄💋👄 Then I found out about all that is hiding in lip colors. ☠️ No thanks! So I happily wore the more subtle tones in the lip sheers and glosses knowing I wasn’t exposing myself to hidden contamination, heavy metals and harsh colorants. Then came color intense... Game on bold lip color! . . link to shop is in my bio💋 This article is from @instylemagazine . . . #boldandbeautiful #betterbeauty #lipstick #longlastinglipstick #beautymadesafer #thistimeitspersonal #everyonemeanseveryone #beautycounter #socialchange #socialimpact #cleanbeauty #transparencyinthebeautyindustry #sourcingmatters #bethechangeyouwishtosee #hellogorgeous #colorintenselipstick #cleanbeautymakeup #longlastinglip #mompreneur #wellnesswednesday #humpday #pursueprettythings #healthyglow #momsohard #mybeautysecret

These two artisans are enjoying a beautiful day while putting the finishing touches on some of their intricate knitwear. The artisans that we partner with are able to choose where and when they want to work. A flexible schedule is important because many of these women have children, crops, and livestock to tend to as well. #andesgiftsartisans #fairtrade #socialimpact
