Hello, I’m Melo. I’m the author of this blog and mama to Mills. Sustainable lifestyle choices can empower us. That’s why I’ve passionately advocated for plant based cuisine, zero waste living, eco-friendly parenting, slow fashion, circular economy and maker culture for over ten years. 

Here, I share mouthwatering recipes, DIY ideas, eco-parenting tips and all my sustainable trials, errors and victories! 

As individuals, we are not responsible for climate change or the terrible environmental impacts of industry. Still, individual action makes a difference because of the sum of our collective efforts and because it inspires optimism. 

Ten years ago, I started this blog, originally titled MTL VEG, to share my passion for plant-based food. I’ve evolved, and so has the blog. In 2023, I changed the name to include my daughter’s nickname, “Mills.” It’s meaningful because everything I do is for her and her generation. They are the future and they are why we should care.

As a parent, citizen action inspires me and fills me with gratitude. Whether you ditch plastic, vote for climate or go vegan, your actions challenge the status quo. Caring enough to give a *bleep* gives us all hope that change is possible.
