Hey there! This is where I write about the process of learning how to optimize my consumption and maneuver through the many frustrations along the way.
“Consumption” includes basically everything involved in living. Food, cosmetics, clothing, energy, knowledge, whatever I can think of and want to find out more about so I can evaluate my actions and inadvertent effect on the world.
I have a few restrictions to work around: I follow a vegan diet and lifestyle, but I’m also an intense skeptic. I’d probably consider myself a skeptic first and vegan second, since it was skepticism that led me to veganism, and also because there is a lot of bullshit floating around lifestyles such as veganism (anti-science fear-mongering, naturalistic fallacies).
I don’t have a degree in chemistry or anything like that, so you’ll have to bear with me as I figure out things.
My goal is to evaluate companies, products, ingredients, sourcing, and learn about different industries through basic research. I want to be a more knowledgeable person, a more conscientious consumer, and hopefully help someone else learn something along the way.
