Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day! I agree with the following image that while it's nice to have Earth Month and Earth day... we really should be taking care of our planet EVERY day. We all can do our part in minimizing our carbon footprint. Being "green" used to be such a fashion statement but now it's become more accepted in society with more and more retail stores creating eco-friendly collections like H&M. Here are some ways to go green:





Household cleaning products. My favorite is Seventh Generation. I use almost all of their products including this fabulous smelling Lavender Floral and Mint dish soap.


Shop products that give back. This dress by Green Heart was made by local women in India. Greenheart is an eco-fair trade non-profit shop, carrying eco fair trade products made by artisans from around the world. The purchase of these products improves the lives of real people and the products are made by establishments that take care of our Earth.

Their lip tars are amazing!

Makeup products. Makeup contains some of the harshest chemicals (including lead) and it's amazing we put this on our face! It's good to make yourself aware about what these products are in your makeup. I like to stick with Bare Escentuals as a foundation. I've also discovered OCC Makeup which is 100% vegan and cruelty free.

Donate and shop at your local Goodwill store. Reduce, reuse, recycle baby! Fast fashions may be fun to shop but they're quite damaging on our environment. The best way is to decrease the amount of clothes we are producing and shop at local thrift shops.

How do you go green?

  2. What a great reminder that we can all be a little more eco-friendly in our daily life! I don't drive a car, I recycle my garbage and old clothing and I buy some organic/eco friendly foods and dairy. Could certainly get better when it comes to cosmetics and cleaning products, though!

  3. Great advice. This day came and went for me as I was traveling but I did think of the small ways I might make a difference. An important day...
