Green Beauty!

I pulled out some of my everyday green toiletries to show you my green ways. Back in December 2007 my mom and read a list of ingredients that are toxic and are in most
shampoo's, lotions, face washes and soaps. Our skin is huge organ and absorbers every thing we put on to it, so knowing the ingredients is key! Although my and Mom and I were doing pretty well, we did read through all our labels to make sure we were toxin free. Here are some of the products I use that are good and green! From left to right, my body brush that I use to brush toxins off my skin and it stimulates blood in the skin, Ergo Soy candle, Earth Science Aloe Vera Toner, Trader Joes (TJ's) Aloe Moisturizer, Tom's of Maine toothpaste and deodorant,
TJ's Vitamin E oil, Earth Science face wash, TJ's Refresh shampoo and conditioner and TJ's Next to Godliness hand soap.

And a great way to Green you bathroom is by purchasing 100% recycled bath tissue every so often. I pick mine up at Trader Joes.
"If every household in the U.S. replaced just one roll of 500 sheet virgin fiber bathroom tissue with 100% recycled ones, we could save:

* 448,000 trees,
* 1.1 million cubic feet of landfill space, equal to 1,700 full garbage trucks,
* and 161 million gallons of water, a year’s supply for 1,270 families of four! "
