waylonlewis Dressing the gentleman. Yesterday was the fulfillment of a lifelong long-armed dream: I've never had money to get a dress shirt tailored to fit my tall self. Off-the-rack shirts have short arms that fit my body or long arms with wide torsos. Jonny (pictured) of @castirondesign and I bussed/biked to @ratioclothingdenver and we both got measured up and ordered a shirt. First of many if works out-- Ratio is all about #madeinusa but off the rack prices (nearly). 97% of clothing sold in the U.S. is made overseas with weak eco and labor protections: for example, did you know all wrinkle-free is so toxic it can't legally be made in the U.S.? #slowfashion #fastfashion #108mindfulmoments 3d

waylonlewis The #KitchenNextDoor in Denver (and mannnny other restaurants) uses plastic-lined non-compostable togoware. :( There's a great option: #TheKitchen used for years and just ordered again in Boulder (kudos) thanks to Geoff--elegant egg carton material clamshell boxes that are home compostable. #plasticisforever #108mindfulmoments 4d

waylonlewis My Friday night: cozy, quiet except for sounds of parties outside and Redford snoring inside. Why? I'm on duty on social media for elephant on Friday and Sunday nights. Grateful that we have enough subscribers that we have enough editors to cover for me most of the time now--for 12 years I've worked 15 hours a day, 7 days a week and loved it, with only rare exceptions. #108mindfulmoments What do you do that you love and don't regard as a chore, but rather duty or service? 2w

  •   mysoulcandance_celisa I agree with @growcreateinspire ....to know the effort and labor I put in will feed myself and others (including flowers and herbs for the flying creatures) is very life affirming and brings me a deep sense of purpose. It's a win win. 2w

waylonlewis Lies, dirty lies! ;) What if I told you almond milk wasn't vegan? Well this almond cheese that I've been buying for years ain't--tho it's in the vegan section. Only took me three and a half years to notice. Damn you, casein! #lisanatti #vegan #vegancheese #alas #alack 2w
  •   waylonlewis @zillahkatz amen but: I didn't say or even imply that everyone is a vegan and I don't and can't speak for all of "EJ." As for fake, stealing milk from a tied up tortured forcibly raped mom isn't exactly natural. ;) 2w
  •   sofiesworld716 @waylonlewis WHAT?! This is my favorite "non dairy" cheese.... Am I just missing something on the label?! 2w
  •   womanunleashed @waylonlewis what a bummer! I buy almond cheese for the same ethical reasons. I ️cows. Now I have to check the ingredients on mine! 2w
  •   vineyard_yoga_syv A lot of the vegan cheeses have casein 😟 it's a bummer because casein is the protein in dairy that's bad for humans (read The China Study). Just this week I found a new vegan cheese called Heidi Ho, made from cashews, nutritional yeast, and lemon juice. It's good! 2w
  •   vineyard_yoga_syv Here's the cheese: @heidihoorganics 2w
  •   mari_qi Better of making your own. I was disappointed in discovering casein is used. I used to buy this for my vegan days. 2w

waylonlewis It's fun to go out, and it's restoring to stay in...but it's fun and restoring to go out *and* go in: #shambhalacenter talk and #meditation with my longtime friend Jim Yensan, who was the director of #karmecholing when I lived there as a boy--his support of my first budding environmentalism changed the course of my life and resulted in low-flow showerheads all over KCL. #108mindfulmoments 2w

waylonlewis Imagine paying writers right, serializing chapters on a site with now-19 million readers/month to build up a writer's readership and social media fans & to AB test titles & subjects, then publishing ebooks, then printing a select few on eco paper with veggie inks in the U.S. or fair labor, distributing free of Amazon, publicizing free through #elephantjournal and supporting indie bookstores. That's the vision of little #elephantbooks--to right a status quo wrong. Our first book, #thingsiwouldliketodowithyou is now serving as a guinea pig on Kickstarter--get your copy and support a mindful community bookolution. Only days left! 2w
