Great Testimonial from GREEN GROUP !!! You can DO IT !!!!!


I will share a Testimonial or even few from Green Group Members in LinkedIn !! I am Happy to see how many are so AWARE and How Many People are taking actions to keep A Clean , Non Toxic Environment with so easy and No Cost Solutions !!!! Soooo …. TRUE and so Easy to Adopt !!! Yes North Americans , so much in Convenience and Consumming !!! Yes to Educate New Generations in REDUCING , REUSING and MINIMALISING and SAYING NO TO BIG BRANDS !!!!!!

1. vinegar and baking soda for:
a. limescale
b. water rings
c. tubs, toilets and sinks and faucets

2. Lemon:
a. getting rid of bacteria
b. disinfecting
c. mould (like let’s say, you had mould on your tent because you packed it away one summer and it got stinky). I would put lemon on the mould it and sunbleach it, just lay it out on the grass or place it on a clothes line outside on a sunny day BAM!

3. essential oils:
a. be careful not to confuse these with mineral oils OR with synthetics – buying them made of soy is renewable and safe
b. I put a few drops of these in a spray bottle with a bit of vinegar (tbl spoon) and dilute it with water. Then I go to town! Where the dog sits, where the boys came over to watch the big game on the sofa and now the house smells like nachos! I just spray that homemade concoction every where

In my opinion, what needs to happen is LESS subsidies to eco companies trying to make eco products (which I do support. Don’t mistake me, I use these true biodegradable and safe eco-products that I buy locally). Rather invest funds in strategies and tactics and programs that encourage the NEW generations to buy into:
REDUCING, REUSING and MINIMALIZING and saying NO to big brands and box stores and ELIMINATING the concept of CONVENIENCE. As North Americans, we are very motivated by convenience.

CONVENIENCE is ruining the Earth. But, with the proper grants and funds into children’s camps, high schools, etc to rid them of the concept of “but this is so much easier…” then I think we’ve got something.

That’s just my thought.

I’d love to hear others…

Also, if you like the eco-tips I gave there, stay tuned because I am starting my own blog soon AND I post daily “ecoTips” (as I call them) on Twitter @wendyalicemona. Follow me and change your ways!

Thanks for reading and considering.

Are You aware … How To Buy Eggs and What the Difference it is between !? Check the Hens and Conditions !!!


Egg Buying Guide

When you go to the grocery store, you have all kinds of choices in eggs. Package labeling may indicate chickens are organic, antibiotic free, free range, and omega-3 enhanced, among others. Let’s take a look at some of these marketing claims to see how it affects the final product.

Conventional Eggs

If you buy eggs at the supermarket without any marketing claims, in other words, the package is labeled jumbo eggs, you might be surprised to learn what that entails. Chicken farming is far from the pastoral image people have of chickens scratching around a barnyard happily before laying eggs. Instead, conventional eggs are raised in egg factories where the chicken are crowded together in multi-hen cages. These close quarters can be a breeding ground for disease, so farmers often fill the hens’ food with antibiotics to keep disease at bay, and those antibiotics can wind up in your eggs. Likewise, hens laying conventionally raised eggs may be given hormones to amp up production. These eggs tend to be lighter in color, less nutritious, and far less tastier than fresh eggs. By the time they get to the grocery store, the eggs may be quite old, as well. Along with containing hormones and antibiotics, conventional eggs may also contain strains of salmonella, which is a dangerous bacteria that can cause severe illness when ingested. Additionally, the hens in conventional factory farms are often fed genetically modified or pesticide laden feed, which can also show up in the eggs.

Are You Aware of Sun Screen And Fragrances Origins and Compositions !?


harmful sunscreenSunscreen

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) states that the FDA has failed to generate any sunscreen safety standards. Many makeup products, particularly foundation and lip balms, contain chemical sunscreens. According to the EWG, however, the evidence that chemical sunscreen protects you from skin cancer is minimal, at best, and some evidence even shows that chemical sunscreen may increase the risk of developing melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. Likewise, sunscreen blocks vitamin D absorption, and many chemical sunscreens contain potential hormone disruptors that can be absorbed through the skin.

Fragrance

harmful fragranceIt’s understandable that you want your cosmetics to smell nice. Unfortunately, many fragrances are chemically generated and can contain multiple chemical compounds. According to The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, fragrance is considered a “trade secret,” so there’s no way of knowing just what those chemicals are. Instead, you’ll typically find these trade secret scents listed in the ingredients merely as “fragrance.”

Possible problems with the chemicals used to create fragrance include allergic reactions, hormone disruption from phthalates and synthetic musks, and even neurotoxic effects from certain chemicals.
