international earth month edition

Every April 22nd, millions of people from around the world gather to celebrate Earth Day. It’s an important reminder to acknowledge our natural environment and various ways to preserve and protect it. In communities across the globe, people attend festivals, talks, and engage in municipal conservation efforts. But what does it all really mean? It’s striking that we only remind each other one day a year about perhaps the most pressing human concern--maintaining our natural resources. What about the rest of the year? Living an environmentally conscious lifestyle is not as daunting a task as it may seem. There are simple actions you can take every day to become more Earth-friendly and eco-conscious. We are taking Earth Month as an opportunity to discuss ways to create a more sustainable world, and…

‘mirror reflections’ with jordan taylor wright own the power to be the change

For a man that prefers to lead a label-free life, Jordan Taylor Wright is many things; he’s a vegan, filmmaker, adventurer, and a proponent of climate change awareness.

He has also created and starred in holiday campaigns for Tiffany & Co., Audi, Ferragamo, and Aloft Hotels.

f-stop gear in review

“Complete with the same key features as its larger Mountain Series counterparts, the Lotus blends in just as well in urban settings as it does in the mountains.” f-stop, a leading innovator in adventure camera carry, created the f-stop pack systems, which is now widely recognized for their rugged build, comfort, and modularity. I never understood the hype surrounding f-stop until I agreed to put the Lotus, one of f-stop’s bags amongst its growing Mountain Series, through its paces. Just as soon as I opened the box I could tell this was a durable, highly versatile bag. At 32 liters, the Lotus is the smallest pack in f-stop’s Mountain Series line-up. But it’s a perfect size for me. I work fast and I don’t want to be switching packs. If you pack…

FTC TRAVEL CONNECTION AMIR ZAKERI PLACE I CALL HOME: HAWAII INSTAGRAM: @AMIRZAKERI WWW.YOUTUBE.COM/USER/AMIRAZAKERI/ What does ‘conscious travel’ mean to you?

It’s about having a different mindset about travel, changing our values and perception of the world and having a common respect for the land of which we visit. The world is ever-changing as people’s mindsets are shifting and consciously waking up. People are beginning to sway away from traveling as a mediocre tourist, not delving into the new domain, learning about it’s people and culture. There is a new beginning of the desire to have more than surface level experiences, people wanting to return home from a trip feeling enlightened and transformed. For me, I feel my first travel…
