Thanks for stopping by! My name is Jessica Schlueter, and I write and run The Tree Kisser blog. I live in Denver, CO with my husband and our two rescue pups. I’m a dedicated animal and human rights advocate, a passion that influences my purchases, my politics, and my priorities. I’m committed to using my privilege in the fight for social, environmental, and racial justice.
The Tree Kisser brand started in 2013 as an animal advocacy and sustainability blog, but it has gone through many evolutions over the years. In 2014, I launched The Tree Kisser apparel line, which raised more than $50,000 for animal rescues. Since closing that business in 2017, I’ve become increasingly involved in local and national politics, and my content (particularly on Instagram) has expanded accordingly. Going forward, I’m defining this more as an Ethical Citizen Blog. A Do The Least Harm Possible Blog. A Compassionate Choices Blog. And an Always Keep Learning Blog.
As a vegan since 2009, animal advocacy will always be a part of my life and a part of my content. My commitment to animal-friendly choices isn’t going anywhere! I hope my long time supporters will welcome the addition of content covering the social and political forces that impact us all. I’m always trying to be a better human, which to me means continually adding to the list of causes I fight for. If you’re on board with that, you’ll be happy here!
