OLivia Rodrigo's New album sour

I've been anticipating this album to come out for months! I was so stoked when it came out! Her album consists of 11 tracks which envelop "melancholy and mischief", as one website quotes. This collection of tunes is what every fan, including myself, has hoped for! Now you can find her new album wherever you get your music from!

Legally Blonde

Elle Woods has it all. She wants nothing more than to be Mrs. Warner Huntington III. But there is one thing stopping him from proposing: She is too blond. Elle rallies all of her resources and gets into Harvard, determined to win him back.

Ways To save the planet

Lately, people have finally realized that global warming is a rising problem. Most people you know have probably told you about how to recycle and ditch plastic straws. Those examples are okay, but ways that you really can lower the amount of carbon emissions and reduce your carbon footprint is by reducing your amount of waste and reusing materials.

EasY Sustainable Swaps

~Upgrade your grocery bags to reusable ones

Next someone asks paper or plastic, try reusable!

~Use a sustainable shampoo

Unfortunately, shampoos have done lasting damage to our water supply. When you rinse your hair the shampoo goes down the drain, leaving them to be sent down into the water supply, polluting a variety of environments including wastewater, surface water, sediment, groundwater, and drinking water. Then there are the plastic bottles used to hold your shampoo. Many of them are either only partially recyclable or cannot be recycled, so they end up in our oceans and landfills.

~Start cooking plant-based foods

Plant based foods are not only good for the environment, but good for you! It is proven from the research from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health that you can decrease your risk of type 2 diabetes. A study published in Frontiers in Nutrition investigated the diets of 34,000 people and concluded that eating regimes rich in fruits and vegetables were better for the planet than those high in animal products. If you can't stop eating meat at least try to cut back the amount you consume regularly, it could help our planet.
