Karina Lorenc

      In the fall of 2011, I was privileged enough to meet a person of extraordinary beauty. She was one of the very first friends that I made at Green Mountain College and she has been a dear and close friend to me ever since. I would not trade her for anything else in the entire…

Research at it’s Finest- By Seraphina Mallon-Breiman

Deodorant by Krista Shugart

A healthy alternative to wearing deodorant! I could go on and on about how horrible antiperspirant deodorant is for your health. The average deodorant stick contains harmful ingredients that are absorbed into your body through your skin. I encourage you to research what you put onto/into your body. I made the switch to crystal deodorant…
