Voices & Activists in the Climate Movement That We 💖
When you think of climate activists, do you think of Greta Thunberg? We don’t blame you, but there are soooooo many more brilliant voices (young and old!) in the climate space who are fighting for our futures and collective wellness every day.
January's Sustainable Book Club Pick Is Here!
We're kicking off January with a fresh new read (and officially toasting to year 2 of our Sustainable Book Club!). Crack open this classic, written by the founder of Patagonia.
Goldune’s Sustainable Book Club is Back (Our November Pick!)
This book may ~technically~ be a kid’s book, but we love all the tips for any-aged folks to dive into a planet-friendly lifestyle. Plus, we 100% agree everyone is old enough to save the planet.
Goldune's September Sustainable Book Club Pick Is Here!
We've been gravitating towards reads and content that explore creative problem solving (hint: our September content theme!) for posterity. Think less doom and gloom and "whatever will we do!" handwringing, and more imperfect solutions that are absolutely worth a shot.
What To Make Of This Month's Climate News (Plus An August Book Club Pick)
It's up to you to decide how you want to participate in this shift, in this movement, and to define what your personal take on climate activism and sustainable living looks like. And it's up to us to support you through that journey.
The Sustainable Book Club Read That's *Not* About Sustainability (!?)
Dedicated by Pete Davis takes a look at commitment-- what it means to commit to a town, a partner, a hobby, a career, or a cause in the era of boundless options and infinite browsing. As it pertains to the climate crisis, we loved the way Dedicated examined what it actually takes to move the needle on policy and public opinion. Think of it as a guide to the "how" and not the "what" of the climate movement.
Drumroll Please! Our Sustainable May Book Club Read Is Here.
This month's read, The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis has been called "The Stubborn Optimist's Guide to the Climate Crisis", which is what sold us right away. If you can't tell from our other picks thus far, we prefer books that lean towards optimism, just like we do.
A Perfect And Sustainable Food, No Matter Your Dietary Preferences.
Consider this not an impassioned ode to dip, but a three-pronged argument as to why dip is the platonic ideal of a delicious meal.
This Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Has A Sustainable Trick Up Its Sleeve!
"Something about the mixture of seaweed, tahini, and chocolate chips creates a sweet-umami masterpiece that's greater than the sum of its parts."
Our New Sustainable January Book Club Pick (And A New Approach!)
While I've read my fair share of sustainability related books, so few actually focus on the real people whose lived experiences have been irreversibly shaped by our consumption of natural resources and emissions of CO2. If you find talking about the facts or the science of global warming to be dull, complicated, overwhelming or anxiety-inducing, this approach might resonate a little more.
The Best Sustainability-Related Books We Read in 2020
Climate change is pretty complicated (well, the basics are really simple, but going deeper gets tricky), so we lean on books when in doubt. These ones are the best for newbies and climate experts alike.
Sustainable Ways to Give Back to Your Community This Holiday Season
Thoughtful, planet-friendly ways to give back to friends, mailmen, family and neighbors. Some involve shopping, some don't, but all are easy and headache-free.
Our Founder Has Sampled A Gajillion “Sustainable” Products— Here are the Gamechangers.
Even before I started Goldune, I had made it my unofficial job to sample every interesting new sustainable product so I could share my thoughts and reviews with my friends and coworkers.
October Quar Book Club
Each month, we host a book club! It's not the kind where we meet in person over cheese and crackers, though we'd really like that. This article is part of our "Round Ups" series, where we share things that inspire us, guide us, or are just really cool. Universal truths: death, taxes, not reading as much as you'd like.
