Finding that Balance

My green philosophy is to always be consciously thinking and questioning my actions and lifestyle choices. Is this necessary? How will it benefit me, and the world around me? And how can I push my self further?

Pushing myself to think about the bigger picture helps me to always think green, even in making small choices. I find a balance that works for me and hopefully this balance will always be questioned and re-evaluated. Being green has a snowball effect, the more green ideas you apply to your life, the more you question other aspects of your ways.

One example of my green "balance" is my nail polish. I am a girly girl at heart and I like to be pretty and that includes pink painted toes poking out of my peep toe sandals. Since nail polish is not really green, due to the chemicals in it, I try to limit the amount of nail polish in my life, but it's summer time now and I like my toes painted. No Miss is a cruelty free nail polish brand and is a balance for me to still try to be green without totally giving up my nail painting ways. The nail polish remover is completely organic and contains no acetone, and ethyl acetate and the nail polishes contain no formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl-pthalate and camphor. You can find these at your local Whole Foods. Click here for more information on No Miss's products.
