Green Dream NYC logo.

We are Green Dream, a New York City-based market offering biodegradable (non) plastics and sustainable workshops for all. Our products range from food and beverage packaging to hotel amenities. We started Green Dream in 2017, after a trip to Indonesia that transformed the way we viewed single-use plastics. We saw the irreversible damage that plastic straws and bags have had on aquatic life, and we wanted to be a part of the solution. We came across a company in Bali that was making plastic products out of plants, and naturally, we were intrigued. When we got back to the states…


If you don’t already know, the Wall Street Journal is a business-focused international daily newspaper based in the Big Apple. The Journal is published six days a week by Dow Jones & Company, a division of News Corp. I was able to get an inside look at The WSJ news floor and speak with the Social/Off-Platform Editor and the Senior Platform Editor last week with my Social Media class. Patrick Hedlund and Charity Scott articulated the ins and outs of using social platforms to build WSJ’s audience, all while holding onto the more traditional readers. …


Communicating respectfully online? That’s so 2000-and-late.

I come from a long line of Girl Scouts. My mom, aunts, and grandmother were all in the program, and so was I. I was taught some genuinely important lessons during my time as a Girl Scout, like to “Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver, and the other is gold.”

The Girl Scout Law and how to pee outdoors- all seriously good lessons. But I can’t help but remember the time when I was made to take an etiquette class with my third-grade Brownies troop. When you are in third grade, you’re messy, and you think…


Newspapers are out, and digital outlets are laying off tons of journalists…I’m scared.

Amidst an attack on journalism, and an ever-shrinking job market for journalists I’ve been forced to evaluate my future career path as a Journalism Major. Watching journalists being laid off from digital outlets I’ve looked up to for years is disheartening, to say the least. I’ve wanted to write for Condé Nast since I took my first solo international trip in 2017. I had the opportunity to volunteer in Bali, Indonesia for a month as an English as a Second Language teacher and I wrote every single day about what I experienced. Two years later, I started travel blogging and…


Every day I do the same exact thing: wake up to Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” as my alarm, roll over and check my socials and then maybe get out of bed for coffee.

Thanks, Drake.

Twitter is my one true love because he makes me laugh multiple times a day, sometimes makes me cry, but is literally always there for me. I spend an hour and twenty-two minutes on average scrolling through Twitter daily. Twitter is the only app I constantly have running. I get a little bit of FOMO from Twitter, and I have this thing where I can’t miss…


When people see a post from Margo mid-scroll, I want them to stop and think, “That’s an intelligent, driven young woman who values other cultures and human experiences.”

I would like to be branded as someone who enjoys traveling, going to fun events, and also someone who stays up to date on politics and recent events. There are so many influencers and travel bloggers in the world that in order for me to stand out, I’ll have to focus on my niche. I think that bringing in my political awareness and unfiltered opinions on social issues can help me come into my brand. Not only will I post my travel photos and life updates, but I’ll also keep it real with my followers and let them know about…


Banksy’s Take On Social Media Addiction

You’re about to fall asleep when suddenly you hear a familiar ping a few feet away from your bed. You might roll over and try to ignore the notification waiting for you on your cell, but chances are you’ll jump out of bed to see what all the commotion is about. So why is that, that we can’t hold off until the morning to check our phones? Why do we obsessively check our social media, even when we’re supposed to be sleeping? Studies say it’s because we are addicted to our mobile phones.

I asked 15 students at Long Island…
