HOW TO BE A HIP­PIE 101

Annex Post - - CURRENTS -

We’ve got you cov­ered on what to eat, wear & lis­ten to.

CRU­ELTY-FREE EATS

For starters, there is the all-nat­u­ral, gluten-free ve­gan food at Doug McNish’s Mythol­ogy Diner. Pop­u­lar chains like Fresh and Kupfert & Kim never fail, but aside from the healthy op­tions (ve­g­ans can in­dulge too!) there are spots like Doomie’s and sweets at Bloomer’s that are too tasty to pass up.

SUS­TAIN­ABLE FASH­ION

Lo­cal de­sign­ers have been tap­ping in to the sus­tain­able fash­ion trend with ev­ery­thing from ve­gan leather to lo­cally sourced labour and ma­te­ri­als. Check out Toronto brands such as the Peggy Sue Col­lec­tion, Matt & Nat, Miik, and Tri­archy who fo­cus on eth­i­cal and sus­tain­able prac­tices.

AC­TIVIST ARTISTS

Lo­cal mu­si­cians from Lido Pimienta to Kaia Kater, Steph Cameron and more are push­ing so­cial and po­lit­i­cal mes­sages through their mu­sic and per­for­mances. It brings us back to the hip­pie hey­day with artists like Buffy Sainte-Marie who are still us­ing mu­sic to inspire and cre­ate change.
