Go Green this February! …with Dr. Bronner’s Magic Liquid Soaps
February 1, 2013
Struggling with your New Year’s Resolutions? Well why not make a promise to yourself to do your bit for the planet and ‘go green’! From the 10th-16th of February 2014 the world will be celebrating Go Green Week; a national week of awareness on taking action on stronger policies to tackle the climate crisis. So, whether you feel like protesting to show your passion on the use of more organic materials in the fashion industry, or making your own compost at home (a trend that has become increasingly popular over the last few months), here are few suggestions from the Dr.Bronner’s team to celebrate go green week!
- Feed your skin with organic skincare
Organic and natural beauty products don’t contain harsh chemicals, which means they don’t contaminate the water and help you to balance your skin’s ph. The Dr.Bronner’s Green Tea Magic Liquid Soap is not only perfect for an energising bath, but also, with its 18-in-1 uses in one bottle, this invigorating, fair trade liquid soap, made with organic oils and infused with natural green tea extracts, can clean just about anything … from washing your vegetables to cleaning your face, body and pearly whites!
- Say no to junk mail
Did you know that the average person receives around 32kg of junk mail every year? Opt for e-newsletters, online catalogues and paperless billing whenever possible. Imagine all the trees they had to cut just for a piece of unnecessary paper?
- Drink tap water
Britain consumes 3bn litres of bottled water per year, which equals to more than 30 billion plastic bottles. So, if we take into account that 162g of oil and seven litres of water are required to manufacture a single bottle… why not try flask bottles instead? It saves money and keeps you healthy.
- Cover Up
Having your heating on all day not only wastes a lot of energy but also dries your skin out. Instead, try to turn in on as soon as you arrive and turn in off overnight. While sleeping, the body balances the temperature naturally to keep you warm, so there is no need to have your heating all night on. Having your heating off while you sleep also helps you to breathe better and don’t dehydrate your skin.
- Go semi vegetarian (or completely if you can!)
Try to cut down your meat intake by having a vegetarian meal per week and then per day. Meat costs a lot at the store-and it’s even more expensive when you consider the related environmental and health costs. Buying from local shops also guaranties it implies less environmental damage.
