Green beauty: do you care for green packaging?

recyclable packaging Green beauty: do you care for green packaging?

I have one question for those of you who are into natural and organic beauty products: do you realized that many of the packaging are marked as recyclable? If it’s not recyclable plastic, then it’s biodegradable paper or something. I actually find that very interesting and wonder how many people who use these products actually care for those labels.

A Method to keep yourself & your household clean

Method Hand Wash A Method to keep yourself & your household clean
I have to do housework. Yes. I. Do. Much as I like to indulge in beauty and blogging, my real life offline involves getting my hands dirty at times and handling laundry detergent, dish washing liquid and bathroom cleaner. I don’t really give a lot of thoughts to these items because most of the time, I’ve got my gloves on when I’m doing my housework.

I’ll admit upfront that I know very little about dental care but I’ve been toying with the idea of switching to a herbal toothpaste recently. The only thing that is holding me back is, there aren’t that many herbal toothpastes available on the store shelves here, and this is not an item I feel compelled to incur shipping cost for. But perhaps more importantly, I wonder if it’s all that wise to switch to one that is fluoride free.
