Sustainable, vegan, inclusive: How to shop for beauty brands that support the same causes as you Vogue gives you the low down on all the sustainable, vegan and inclusive cosmetic companies. 2019 serves as the end of an exciting decade in the world of beauty—inclusivity, sustainability and environmental consciousness are no longer trendy buzzwords fuelled by marketing bucks, but the standard that consumers hold all brands up to. Over the course of the past ten years, Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty won a spot on TIME’s list of the best inventions in 2017, and Kat Von D’s eponymous beauty brand opted for a complete overhaul to weed out any animal-derived ingredients from their offerings. While it may seem like the major decisions happen in boardrooms and warehouses, as an end consume, you have the power to be the driver of change.

Business / Companies : The Genius of Google One of the advantages of being a behemoth like Google is that every business decision one takes can be easily shrugged off as brand-building and marketing without being scrutinized for further motives. Take for example its latest free mobile application—‘Ingress’. Packaged as an alternate reality game, players are required to go outside into the real world to accomplish tasks. ‘Ingress’, however, is merely the latest step in a series that helped Google build its empire. As far-fetched as it may sound, the game is being used to take on Nokia’s recently announced turn-by-turn navigation for pedestrians. The game’s storyline and rules are plucked straight from the realm of science fiction, where players collect virtual energy at different locations with their smartphones and then spend that at other places ( known as portals) to unlock various missions.

Scratchboard Cards I often get asked if making your own art materials saves money. The honest answer is that sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t, a fact I find true of DIY projects in general. But cost is not the main reason I like to make things myself; I really just enjoy the exploration and I hope to pass on this fascination with how things are made to my kids. Case in point, these fun scratchboard cards! Clean beauty: everything you need to know The clean beauty movement, once a niche trend championed by the likes of Goop, has gone mainstream. A new report, released in February 2019 by the British Soil Association Certification, announced that conscious consumerism pushed the UK organic beauty and wellbeing market to an all-time high, with millennials and Gen Z leading the way. “There is no doubt the tide has turned on sustainable beauty and wellbeing,” says CEO of Soil Association Certification, Martin Sawyer.

Vir Sanghvi How you define an original inhabitant of Bombay or Mumbai (as the city was renamed in 1996) depends on how far back you go. My mother moved to Bombay from Ahmedabad, where she grew up, in the 1940s, when she was in her early 20s. Her mill-owner father would not let her join the family business so she found a job as an industrial psychologist (what we would now call Human Relations) in a British company in Bombay.

Cinderella To the Young Women and Men of Delhi: Thinking about Rape from India Gate Dear young women and men of Delhi, Thank you for the courage and the honour you have brought to Rajpath, the most dishonorable street in our city. You changed Delhi yesterday, and you are changing it today. Your presence, of all twelve thousand of you, yesterday, on Rajpath, that street that climbs down from the presidential palace on Raisina Hill to India Gate, getting soiled by the excreta of the tanks and missiles on Republic Day each year, was for me a kind of purificatory ritual. It made a claim to the central vista of ‘Lutyen’s Delhi’ as a space for democratic assertion in contravention of the completely draconian, elitist and undemocratic prohibitory orders that make the heart of this republic, a zone of the death, not the life and sustenance, of democracy. From now onwards, consider the heart of Delhi to be a space that belongs, first of all, to its citizens.
