Hello everybody (said in Grover’s voice). Ok, some of you might have heard me mention the website I contribute to – Earth First. Sol, the creator of Earth First, has recently used her enormous talent to bring to the world a gorgeous e-magazine that focuses on the little things we can all do to improve the health of the Earth and its inhabitants. The magazine is available for iPad and the first issue is divine.
The plastics issue may not sound very exciting, but don’t let the subject fool you. There’s an article about her friend’s attempt to live without plastic for one week – it was impossible and shows us how much we depend on this substance in our every-day lives. One of my favourite pieces was an article I did (ok, not just because I did it), on a gifted artist who takes discarded plastic and reinvents it into stunning, ethereal pieces of art – you won’t believe how amazing the pieces are. There is also a fashion spread on a label that uses recycled materials to design sexy, feminine clothes and great info on some decadent, organic cosmetics.
There’s more in there but I’ll let you discover it for yourselves. So if you own an iPad and are looking for a new magazine to love, then this could be it. I would give it twinkly stars, however you may not believe me because I am a little biased. You can check it out here http://www.earthfirst.net.au/earthfirst-ipad-magazine, go on it’s just a little click.
