Greenwashing, the fight against eco as a brand

The year 2020 is almost coming to an end, and it might set a new record as the hottest year recorded in history. It’s not an achievement we need to celebrate. The need to make a change is long overdue. Every individual can do their part in the fight against climate change, discrimination, oppression, slavery, …

Eat (your) green(s)

A plant-based diet is without a doubt still the greenest option. You can reduce your impact on the environment and slash your carbon footprint by skipping meat and dairy products from your diet. However, there is no diet that can be 100% eco proof. Some popular foods within the vegan culture can still be environmentally …

Misinformation, a fight against fake news

We need to distinguish two terms in fake news. Misinformation and disinformation. That one consonant makes a difference. They both mean false information, but the latter is set to deliberately mislead. People doing their own research online will easily fall into a web of deception. So it’s hard to combat fake news. As it goes …

Cybermasks

Once Cyberpunk predicted how fashion would evolve. They were inspired by metropolises, technology, and a dark future. Now that future doesn’t seem so far fetched as it used to. The big question now is, will face masks disappear again from the street scene?

Your personal fight against taking things personally

Most of our thoughts during the day are negative. Just a handful of the more than 50.000 things our brain comes up with daily are in fact positive thoughts. Even though the exact number is still debated, it is eye-opening that we have so little positivity inside of us. It’s no wonder that we find …

Technology on the rise

While remote work is becoming the norm this year, it’s clear that we depend more on technology than ever before. Telework forces us to communicate differently and work smarter. A quick call is replaced with a quick chat through video. And somehow it reassures me that we start to believe in the advantages of technology …

Watch out for remote burnout

Why do you travel?

If we can learn something from today’s crises, it’s that traveling doesn’t come without consequences. Either to our own health safety or to the environment. By now we understand that traveling by plane for instance releases a lot of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Have you ever looked at the┬áchemtrails in the sky? There are …

Fine art is a scam

The world of fine art is manipulated financially. Galleries and auction houses drive up the price in all sorts of ways. It’s a small group of people who decide what is good and what is not. They also tend to choose who they will sell the art to. If they sell to prestigious buyers, the …
