The Federal Communications Commission has approved an application from Alphabet — Google’s parent company — to fly Project Loon balloons over Puerto Rico in an effort to provide emergency cell coverage to the island, according to Reuters.
Puerto Rico is still reeling in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, which struck the island on Sept. 20 and paralyzing winds, rain and storm surge. When it hit, it was nearly a category 5 storm, and pummeled the island with gusts and rains for more than 30 hours.Two weeks later, most of the island still doesn’t have power or clean water. And for large portions of the island, cell coverage is still a pipe dream, too.
Herbs and spices are nature’s natural version of pills and chemical potions. They’re concentrated doses of powerful healing nutrients and their flavor packs a punch just as strong!

Most homes will have a plant and it’s considered sacred, not least because of its many medicinal qualities.
Being environmentally and ethically conscious when it comes to beauty often conjures thoughts of prohibitively expensive products or “at home beauty hacks” leaving you with a collection of mason jars filled with good intentions. Don’t worry, these aren’t your only options!
It’s frustrating that the majority of easily accessible cosmetic and beauty brands on the market not only take a toll on the environment, our bodies, and are connected with widespread animal cruelty, but seem to be purely focused on contributing to the profits of major corporations.
Fortunately, there are a number of amazing companies who are providing small production, big impact, ethical and socially conscious products changing the market and offering not only effective but preferable beauty alternatives. Switching to natural, ethical, green brands will, in the long term, be better not only for your complexion but can contribute to positive societal change.
