Use a digital camera!  Every year there are approximately 686 million rolls of film developed which depend on harsh chemicals for processing.  You can print the images that you LOVE and store the rest electronically which cuts down on tons of waste!  (This tip is from the The Green Year..great book..full of amazing tips!)

I was flipping through someone’s copy of glamour at work and saw this great tip that is supposed to make your skin look radiant. All you need to do is gently exfoliate your skin and in circular motions apply either almond or grapeseed oil. (you can get both of these at your local health store or I bet even your local grocery store these days)
I just washed, exfoliated and oiled up!
Honestly, It isn’t the least bit greasy, try it and let me know how you like it! (I used grapeseed oil)

Keep it clean..

I don’t know about you, but with all the winter sniffling going on around town..all I can think of is sanitize, sanitize, sanitize!!  Thankfully, I found a pocket size one that I LOVE called CleanWell.  Its all natural, alocohol free, has a light citrus herb scent, and your hands are left super soft!! (not like the other ones, where your hands feel so dry they could crack)

I got mine at whole foods, but have also seen it at many different natural food stores, so Im sure you can find it near you!

March 27th, 8:30 pm local time marks Earth Hour 2010.

Mission, History & Earth Hour 2010  

“On Earth Hour hundreds of millions of people, organizations, corporations and governments around the world will come together to make a bold statement about their concern for climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour. Participation is easy. By flipping off your lights on March 27th at 8:30 p.m. local time you will be making the switch to a cleaner, more secure nation and prosperous America. Last hear hundreds of millions of people supported this effort by shutting their lights off for 1 hour!”  Invite some friends over, have dinner by candlelight, enjoy each others company.

Im so grateful when good people share good information (thanks PA!)..and when they do, you are the first to hear about it..

This one in particular is on a much larger scale than we usually speak about, but important to all of us.   Hesstech, an electronics recycling company was established in 1997 by David Zimet, who prior to Hesstech, worked for New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).   Once he finished his project with the NJDEP, he created Hesstech with the following goals in mind.

  • To balance economic processing solutions with sound environmental principles
  • To responsibly extend the useful life of computers and electronics
  • To provide comprehensive data security and cradle-to-grave documentation
  • These goals are so important today because of the massive amounts of recycling fraud and ewaste.  Hesstech is committed to detailed follow which is what it takes with reycling technology.   Today there are far too many ewaste cemetaries (as bigs as mountains) around the world polluting our air and water resevoirs!  So today I am grateful to Hesstech, because of their high standards in the recycling/eco we all have a fighting chance at really make a change in the world.  Please read more about them..

    Below is a great video by Greenpeace about this very subject.
