The beauty of Nepal will take your breath away.
However, lack of proper waste management in Nepal is beginning to degrade some of that beauty. In many places, around 70% of waste is dumped in rivers or burned on the side of the road. This has contributed to pollution and disease in Nepal’s communities.
It is Taylor’s mission to change that. She is currently working on creating a sustainable waste management system in Chitwan, Nepal. She then plans on replicating it in other regions of Nepal.
Taylor has already helped educate tens of thousands of locals and recycled over 800 tons of recyclables that would have otherwise ended up in the streets or in landfills. Way to go Taylor!

Here’s to taking a stand for the land & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

Wikipedia (ahem, my favorite source) defines “pay it forward” as “an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying the kindness to others instead of to the original benefactor.”
In other words, when someone does something nice for you, you do something nice for someone else, sparking an awesome chain reaction of kindness :)
Season’s greetings to you and your family!
We hope you have a great thyme this season doing your favorite holiday things: from cumin together with your family, to wearing warm and comfy cloves, to chili-ing out and taking some time off to rest. Oh and have fun opening presents too, just remember that “it is always pepper to give than to receive.”
From all of us at Taaluma, we wish you a rose-merry Christmas and a dill-lightful New Year!
