Unusual weather patterns have caused water levels to drop to 2.3 feet (70cm), down by nearly half the average. As a result, boats and gondolas have been left to languish in the muck, and This is not the first time that the Italian...

So maybe you’ve already switched out your deodorant and buy organic or pastured meats and you’re wondering what’s next. Or maybe you have your house all perfectly nontoxic and you are looking for an upgrade. Or maybe you have no idea that lurking in your bath towels are the likes of: urea, PVA starch and wax coated yarn bleach used to whiten towels before dying hydrogen peroxide, caustic defoamer, optical brighteners and other proprietary ingredients added to bleach synthetic or chemical dyes to color towels chemicals to make towels feel softer – KKAP manufactures many of these agents, you can check out a list of potential softeners used here. Welp, they do. So how do you avoid inviting all of these nasties into your home in the form of a towel? Go organic. Safe for your skin and better for the environment.

I didn’t formally make this a goal but it’s something I’ve been meanging to do for a while and with the new year upon us it kind of just hit me like a truck. Just do it already! The resistance comes from doing most of my food shopping at Whole Foods. It’s a lazy man’s approach to food shopping because I know I can get most anything there from specialty items to meats to produce and anything in between without much compromise. Like, I H.A.T.E. the mulit-stop food shop. Nothing gets my goat more than that feeling of wasting time pogoing from one store to the next for organic almond butter here and frozen calui rice there. But one day last year I came out of Whole Foods with three bags of groceries and $300 poorer and I knew I was being had.

Environmental Toxins May Contribute to Aging

by AustinNatural @ Austin Natural Mattress

Chronological age is determined by birth date. Biological age is established by physiological and molecular cells within the individual. The latter is influenced by the exposure of damaging substances in the environment, such as chemicals, cigarette smoke, or even stress (gerontogens). Aging occurs when the body goes through a biological mechanism called senescence. During this process, healthy cells become impaired and they lose their ability to divide. Over a period of time, these impaired cells begin to compile, using resources and releasing hormones with inflammatory characteristics. This majorly contributes to aging and age related diseases. Someday, scientists hope that blood...

So it’s time for us to get a new mattress, and, of course, I’m looking for a natural, “eco-friendly” one. After all, a lot of conventional mattresses are made with harmful chemicals and all sorts of bad stuff and we sleep (and sometimes co-sleep with our kids) on these things for 8 hours a night! …

Do You Have to Be Crunchy to Use Cloth Diapers?

by Kimberly Rosas @ Green Child Magazine

When a stranger learns that you cloth diaper your baby, do they automatically add you to the “crunchy” category? Honestly – we all make judgements every day, every hour, every minute. In a social situation we consciously – or unconsciously – size up the people around us. When I see a woman in a perfectly...

Beauty Heroes X Maya Chia To Ring In The New Year!

by thisorganicgirl @ This Organic Girl

Okay, let’s set the stage for this review. Beauty Heroes is a subscription service that delivers the best of the best green beauty has to offer. Their name carries a ton of weight in the green beauty world and I have even heard brands mention they are working on reformulating so they can meet the Beauty Heroes standard. Now because of this, brands love working with Beauty Heroes and subscribers are OFTEN the first ones to try featured brands’ new releases, new packaging, new formulations, reformulations and so-on. It’s really such a privilege to be apart of the Beauty Heroes community. This subscription is truly for people who not only value what they put on their bodies BUT who also value top notch performance and living on the edge of green beauty technology. That being said Beauty Heroes rang in the new year in 2017 featuring Maya Chia’s The Super Couple and Waterless Wonder Balm and here they are again ringing in 2018 with none other than: Maya Chia! Not only am I loving this tradition (I’m looking at you 2019!) BUT Beauty Heroes is starting off the new year off on the right foot, setting the stage for whats to […]

The Power of Napping

by AustinNatural @ Austin Natural Mattress

As most of us know, it’s very difficult to fit in the recommended 8 hours of sleep per night. However, there is a great substitute for this that a lot of us tend to overlook: napping! This little nugget of luxury is something that gets thrown by the wayside upon adulthood. It’s unfortunate since adequate sleep provides so many benefits and even contributes to longevity. Research by NASA shows that naps escalate performance. Their pilots who took 25 minute naps were twice as focused and more attentive than those who didn’t. NASA also found that taking naps enhanced reaction times...

We all neglect sleep sometimes, whether for our jobs or for movie marathons, but many of us don’t fully understand the seriousness of sleep deprivation.

While napping can’t take the place of a good night’s sleep, it does offer numerous health benefits when done right. The Sleep Foundation points out that over 85% of mammals “are polyphasic sleepers, meaning that they sleep for short periods throughout the day.” Humans are not in that category, but perhaps they should be. Daytime…

Building a Goat Pen: Step by Step Videos

by DaNelle Wolford @ Weed 'em & Reap

In all my years of owning goats… Never has anything proved quite as frustrating as building a strong goat pen. You’d think that goats (being relatively small & docile) wouldn’t be so tough to contain. But oh no. It’s like Jurassic Park over here. Except, instead of being killed and/or eaten, you just have a goat staring at you silently through your kitchen window. Nobody dies, but it’s still hella

Going Gray: Gray Hair at 40 (8 Months And Counting)

by thisorganicgirl @ This Organic Girl

There’s no turning back now guys. It’s been 8 months since I stopped dying my hair and I’m like really gray now. I’m also celebrating my 40th birthday this March and if you had asked me 5 years ago if I would be gray by 40, I would have dyed laughing! But here I am, entering my 40s and embracing my gray hair. So here’s the latest. First of all, at 8 months out my hair is SO DRY! I realize now when I was dying my hair every 4 weeks, it wasn’t only adding color, it was adding shine, texture and vibrancy. Now after going cold turkey, the true condition of my hair has been exposed and it’s not cute. My virgin hair is not dry but the chemically treated section is. And not only is it dry, it’s inconsistent in color. Some parts are darker than others and some strands have fully lost their chemical pigment. Every few months I would have my colorist run my color all the way through the ends of my hair during the last 5 mins of treatment to even out my color and avoid this from happening. And now I have nothing […]

Why we carry Naturepedic Organic Crib Mattresses.

by AustinNatural @ Austin Natural Mattress

When Does “No Flame Retardants” NOT Actually Mean “No Flame Retardants”? Many commonly used flame retardant chemicals are being connected to health and developmental issues. Want a mattress without flame retardant chemicals? Get one that’s certified organic from your mattress store. Otherwise, flame retardants will probably be in that mattress, even if greenwashing marketing suggests otherwise, and you’re going to need to guess what they are. It’s not easy to find out what flame retardants are in your mattress. Let me explain with a little compare and contrast. We say “Naturepedic mattresses meet all government flammability standards...
