Buying locally grown food produced by our small-scale farmers and fishers helps address poverty and brings back jobs, especially in the rural areas. Asking about where our food comes from and how food is made is a start in helping food producers adopt practices that do not harm the environment. Supporting fair trade and weekend markets helps keep small-scale farmers, fishers and local businesses in business.

My beauty principle is simple: It has to be sustainable.
And this means that the products I patronize:
- fit my budget;
- can be easily found in the usual beauty shops, drug stores, and convenience stores - especially when there's a sudden sleepover or out of town trip;
- are made of natural products (as much as possible); and
- are produced locally!
