Please tell me I’m not the only one who loves the movie Clueless?! Now, I realize how ridiculous of a movie it is, but in a “I love how ridiculous this movie is” kind of way, right?

Turning Plastic Ocean Waste into Activewear | Business with Purpose Podcast EP 182: Hannah Tomita, Kaira Active

By the year 2050, it’s estimated that there will be as much plastic in the ocean as there are fish.

Jobs End Poverty | EP 174: Amy Brewer, Founder of Elizabeth's Voice

How My Faith Impacts My Passion for Fair Trade | EP 170

12/4/2019
I didn’t really grow up in the church. My walk with God as a kid included being friends with a Christian in elementary school until she broke up with me because I wasn’t “Christian” enough for her, a brief stint as the lead singer of a Christian worship band in middle school called Doubting Thomas - they needed a singer and I could sing so I fit the bill, and going to Catholic mass on Christmas and Easter…. needless to say, I did not truly understand the gospel until my mid 20s. I came to...
