The War On Ugly
The world we live in is fierce and ruthlessly competitive and this dog-eat-dog mentality has created a lot of ugly. Global leaders with ugly beliefs, powerful influencers with ugly behaviours, businesses with ugly practices, and some ugly ingredients going into our food. All of which means some ugly results in the way we treat each other, our environment, and our health. But globally we are waking up.
There is no room for ugly in this gorgeous world.
