Eco-Friendly Laundry

So we’ve all had one, one of those ‘Out of the Blue’ revelation moments. I had often thought about the chemicals and hazards in our environment. The noxious stuff in the air, the “who knows what” in the water and the awfulness sprayed on commercial produce – that’s some scary stuff.

To E-Read or Not to E-Read? That is the question I asked myself a few months ago when I first considered purchasing an E-Reader.

Eco-Pro Tip // Natural Makeup Brush Cleanser

Giving your makeup brushes a nice, natural cleansing might be easier than you think! The other day when I was cleaning out my bathroom supplies (a rare occasion) I thought I’d also give my brushes a scrub (another thing I don’t do often enough). I reached for the cleanser I had used in the past that is specifically made for makeup brushes, but when I read the label I was surprised to find loads of weird chemicals.
