Veganism + sustainable living in Puerto Rico with @betweenblackandbliss
Have you ever wondered how the food we eat and the clothes we buy affects our environment? Where does all our waste go? How does consumerism culture enable negative environmental impacts? What can we do to better the situation in Puerto Rico? I sat with Ledishla (@betweenblackandbliss), an advocate for sustainable living and veganism who has dedicated her platform to educating her followers on sustainable ways to live, to learn a little more about how we can switch up our diet to one that is eco-friendly and how we can refrain from plastic consumption (and greenwashing, ew) in an island that does not encourage its community to reduce waste or recycle. Through her we will redirect our focus on solutions that work, rather than on problems that don't.

Through social media platforms you can network and establish friendships with amazing people and encounter yourself with the not-so-great. In this episode, I will delve deeper into how social media has shaped me into the person I am today, and how I've worked through the social media bullying in order to never lose the essence of how I perceive myself.

The importance of forgiving yourself
Back from my hiatus with a friendly reminder that sometimes in order to be happy, we just have to accept our faults and find ways to better ourselves with every coming day. Approval and validation of others is not essential to our happiness. To move on is to grow.
