Did you know that you can do your part to protect earth from the clothes you wear? Organic is no longer just a word associated with food. You can wear organic clothes and they’re definitely not not just green and brown if you’re going by this very hip and chic collection from Stewart+Brown.
This is the first in a series of reviews I will run on tried and tested anti-perspirants and deodorants.
This is a swivel up, rub on alcohol-free clear stick type of deodorant which is supposed to eliminate offensive armpit odour.

Darcy Trevor tipped me off on these ingenious clear storage boxes which she uses to store her shoes.
Apparently, these clear boxes have been featured in some of the women’s magazines and are are said to be retailing at S$10 per box. However, Darcy got exactly the same ones at S$1.60 each, which is such a steal!
“I bought a few from one of those odds-and-ends store in my neighbourhood and I thought they are pretty useful. Now, I no longer have to tag or label my boxes as I can see through them, and more importantly, plastic is more durable!”
Handmade by cooperatives in India, the project collects plastic bags that litter the streets and neighborhoods of New Delhi.
The process is a renewing process which uses a fraction of the energy of recycling, where layers of different color plastic bags are placed on top of each other and fused together. The lining is made of polyester, and the trim of rexine/vinyl. In addition to recycling plastic, the process does not require additional dyes or inks which may be toxic.
