Today is a very special day, not only because it’s Friday, but because it’s Earth Day. It’s a reminder to make smart, sustainable choices, in favor our Earth, everyday. Little things like walking and biking places when it’s not necessary to drive, updating batteries and light bulbs for more sustainable options, turning off the lights when you leave a room, taking shorter showers, and so on. It’s also important to “vote” with your dollar and support businesses with eco-conscious values. For instance, buying organic or locally grown food, using cleaner makeup, hair, and nail brands, searching for secondhand clothing first, and much more. It’s important that we take care of our planet for generations to come!
Favorite Dessert (These Earth Day potted plant cupcakes by The Chalkboard Mag are so clever!):
Favorite Reusable Shopping Bag (Using this one from The Little Market is a great way to make a smaller footprint, not only because it’s reusable, but because it’s made from sustainable materials from women artisans in Bangladesh, who are able to provide a better life for their families):
Favorite Garden Smell (This body oil from Cap Beauty not only feels amazing, makes you glisten with a subtle golden shimmer, but it absolutely smells like you just rolled around in a garden. IT IS WORTH THE SPLURGE to use for very special occasions. The highest quality ingredients are used, straight from the earth — a perfect way to celebrate today):
Favorite Healthy Living App (This app from the trusted resource, EWG provides ratings for more than 120,000 food and personal care products with just a barcode scan. It provides reviews and recommends better choices):
