hip.jpgCharlize Theron is a pretty amazing actress. I had the opportunity to watch her in the movie, North Country, the other day and was once again reminded of her talent. It also helps that she’s gorgeous. Anyways, besides her hollywood talents, Theron is also known as an ardent supporter of the environment. One of our favorite sites, Hip & Zen, has recently received her endorsement for their South African Chic Collection. From the article, Charlize said, “”I support any brand that gives back to the community so I applaud HIP & ZEN for teaming up with The Topsy Foundation and introducing the South African Chic Collection.” Of the collection, founder Clothier says, “I was amazed at the wonderful creativity emerging from local designers on my last trip home. I loved the innovative and fresh direction the artisans were taking and knew these unique pieces would bring a bit of the exotic and untamed to the states. And, the products are all sustainable and fairly traded — truly HIP & ZEN!”

Well, cool. A portion of the proceeds from each piece of unique jewelry, handbag, bowl, or whimsical gift item will benefit the Topsy Foundation sanctuary near Johannesburg. The Topsy Foundation was started to help women and children with AIDS. Hit the press release for more on Theron and her support of the collection!

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
