Love Mother Nature: Cleaning Up Your Bathroom Routine

Love Mother Nature: Cleaning Up Your Bathroom Routine

With just a few simple lifestyle adjustments, you and I and everyone in our community can work to make our environmental footprint smaller… 

If I were to ask you: is Mother Nature out of sorts lately? Would you agree with me? Hurricanes, earthquakes, maddening temperatures, droughts and floods. It’s during times like this that I find myself taking a step back and assessing my daily life. And I wonder if my lifestyle is either helping or hurting her?

And I realize: I will not cure all of our Earth’s faults by myself.

But, I can make a conscious effort to be kinder to our planet, simply by changing up some of my day-to-day routines. Each week,  I’ll be sharing a few simple swaps that I hope all make my carbon footprint smaller. Take a step back and ask yourself what you can do. Will you join me?

First, let’s look at our bathroom routine.

50% of my morning is spent in the bathroom getting ready, so I thought that may be a good place to start.

Water.

I’m quite quick in the shower, so this was easy for me. Test yourself one day this week — time how long your shower is. Try cutting your time in half — this will save on at least a couple of gallons daily. Also, turn the water off while brushing your teeth.

Hair. 

Look at haircare brands. What are they doing for our planet? After doing a little research, I recently tossed out my shampoo and swapped it for vegan AND organic Yarok. They donate 3% of their profits to preserve the Amazon rainforest.

Try buying in bulk.

Reuse bottles!

Skip the blow dryer. Air drying helps save energy as well as hair damage. 

 

Body.

Wash with a bar of soap instead of liquid. Save a plastic tree. I’ve been loving this Pumpkin + Wild Carrot soap for fall.

And those plastic razors we ALL have been using since mum finally said it was cool to shave? Yeah, they will be in landfills for the next 100+ years. Try swapping to a safety razor and simply learn how to change out your blades.

Smile. 

Give bamboo toothbrushes a try. They can decompose into soil in just one day.

I love setting goals that are achievable, and after completing this list, I’m excited to tweak other areas of my day-to-day. Each of the swaps were super simple, and have become a new normal for me. What are your tips? I’d love to hear them?

Serves 2.
Ingredients
Dressing:
15 oz garbanzo beans (in liquid, no salt)
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp capers
1 tbsp caper brine
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt
Black pepper

1 head Romaine lettuce, split in 2 lengthwise
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup reserved garbanzos
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
1 tbsp capers
1 tbsp toasted pine nuts
1 loaf gluten free focaccia (or bread of choice for croutons)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil for croutons
Salt
Black pepper
Method
Dressing:
Reserve 1/2 cup of garbanzos for garnish.  Purée rest of ingredients in blender till very smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust salt and pepper. (There should be extra dressing to use at a later date for crudités or more salad.)

Summer Berry Cobbler with The Great Kosmic Kitchen

Summer Berry Cobbler with The Great Kosmic Kitchen

Gluten- and refined sugar-free, this summer berry crumble will surely appeal to everyone at your July 4th shindig…

This post comes to you from Sarah Kate of The Great Kosmic Kitchen.

We recommend your sourcing the freshest berries you can find — it will make all the difference. We had so many raspberries in our little garden we were obliged to include them. Blueberries, strawberries or blackberries would work just as well. They are bountiful this time of year.

Since your berry crumble might cry out for some sweet to complement its tartness, consider adding coconut whipped cream! Full of healthy fat and just a hint of sweet, you may start using it on lattes, with fresh fruit, or just eating it straight off the spoon. Both recipes can be made ahead of time and stored in your refrigerator before serving. XO

Cobbler Ingredients

2 cups fresh raspberries, strawberries or blueberries

1 cup gluten free rolled oats

1/4  cup natural sweetener – maple syrup or coconut sugar would be great!

1/2  cup walnuts

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/2  cup coconut butter or coconut oil + 1 tsp

1/4 tsp cardamom powder

1/2 tsp sea salt

Method

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a small baking dish with 1 tsp of coconut butter and add berries. In a food processor, combine oats, sweetener, walnuts, sunflower seeds, coconut butter, cardamom and sea salt. Pulse until a rough crumble form. Test flavor and texture of crumble by pinching a little with your fingers so that the mixture stays together. If it feels too ‘floury,’ add a little more coconut butter or oil and pulse again. Sprinkle crumble on top of the berries, making sure to cover them evenly. Bake for about 20-30 minutes or until crumble top is golden and berries have softened to release some of their juices. Remove from the oven to let cool for a few minutes and serve with a dollop of fresh Coconut Whipped Cream. (This part takes a little planning ahead, but it’s well worth the extra step.)

Coconut Whipped Cream Ingredients 

1 can full fat coconut milk

1 tsp organic vanilla extract

1/2  tbsp maple syrup or sweetener of choice

Method

Pop can of coconut milk into the fridge to solidify the night before making whipped cream. When the summer berry cobbler is just about done, remove can from the fridge and scoop out the top layer of thick cream into a bowl. Store the remaining coconut liquid in a jar for later use. You could go about making the whipped cream a few different ways depending on what appliances you have. From here, you could add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend for a few minutes until smooth and creamy. You could also use a hand mixer or an upright mixer to get the same results. Another option would be to put all the ingredients in a mason jar with a tight lid and shake for about 5 minutes until the cream forms. Makes about 1 cup. Keep any leftovers in an airtight jar in the fridge.

3 Things To Do Today

3 Things To Do Today

Because Sundays are for rejuvenation… 

To break my Sunday cycle, I started off by telling myself this: You are a beautiful, hard-working, selfless being, and you deserve this time. Treat yourself.

So I did. Three things, every Sunday, for myself. I’m sharing them to give y’all some ideas, and hopefully inspire you to take a day off — completely — and cater to your needs. Follow along with this series if you feel like your “you” time is missing.

Visit your local conservatory.

I love visiting Phipps here in Pittsburgh at least once during the spring. Not only does the clean air provide me with some much-needed cleansing, but the trip always inspires me to  incorporate more nature into my home and lifestyle. Spend time walking around, read the signs, and ask the staff any question that comes to mind. If you don’t live near a conservatory, try a local flower farm! Bringing more nature into this world is important, and learning about it will make you thrive.

Plan your garden.

After the trip, it’s time to get to work. Start planning your garden the season/s ahead — ideal location, what you would like to grow… Take what you learned from the conservatory to make a plan. I’ll be planting a flowerbed in front of my house, hanging an indoor herb garden, and adding two new houseplants to my indoor collection.

Eat fresh.

My end goal? To pick and cook from my herb and vegetable garden this year — on a daily basis. As a vegan, I’m always looking for new foodie ideas with fresh ingredients. The best way to find new recipes? Taste them. Make a trip to that new hip restaurant in town (I went to Apteka — take a look at that menu), with a group of friends to understand how they are mixing fresh ingredients into modern, earth-friendly dishes. I’ll definitely be mimicking a few dishes. Oh, and if they have outdoor seating, opt for that!

I’m challenging you to clear your schedule today and do 3 things for yourself. You work your butt off, and deserve some time for yourself. If you try this out, let me know how it went, and if you feel rested and rejuvenated, let’s keep this up.

In most candor, I’m half ashamed/half thrilled to inform you that, today, to commemorate my birthday, I chose to create a visionboard of all of the issues I really hope to attain for this season. I’m nearly certain if this really is from the “Common guidelines of visionboard producing” but I’ll consider the chance and reveal to you a number of of my expectations and desires for this season… Below it moves:

1. Serenity to all creatures on nbsp & Earth;2. A visit to Iceland. Clear, skin that is healthy.

The World works in mystical methods as, significantly less than 12 hours since causeing the visionboard I’m today truly nearer to 2 (along with a bit of 3) of these desires — through my unforeseen launch to my new buddy, Gigja Wesneski, founding father of Origin Technology, a natural skincare point which resources a lot of its extraordinarily effective elements in Gigja’s indigenous nation of… (you suspected it,) Iceland.

Continue reading to determine what Gigja needed to inform me during hellip & our honest meeting;.

Root Science Skincare Products

1. Notify me about Origin Technology. What impressed one to begin a type of organic skincare and what’s your desire (for that organization and/or your lifetime and/or our world)?

It had been a number of occasions that are serendipitous that brought me to find out my enthusiasm that is genuine: natural skincare. But into how Origin Technology found fruition before I leap, I’m willing to open the actual driver that pressed me, about anything I seldom discuss.

After I was just 14 our mom died from head cancer, also it was a significant wake up demand my loved ones. We started initially to & ldquo rdquo regions of our existence, and threw all poisonous cleanup materials and meals.

It didn’t happen it had been decades within the producing, also it was subsequently my curiosity about natural living started. Our mom s moving created me reassess what I put in my body, but I completely overlooked these products I put on my body.

It wasn’ t till 10 years later when my sibling struggled with serious acne that I started initially to re evaluate the wonder items we used. Our sibling had attempted every traditional and prescription choice available on the market, which just deteriorated her situation (and arrived at discover were full of poisonous/carcinogenic elements).

They simply didn&rsquo after I looked for organic items which were impressive .  Quit without any choices, I got it to begin studying acne remedies that are natural. I began producing & ldquo products&rdquo and came across a prosperity of “ superfood skin-healing elements;.

Following a year of error and trial, with my sibling as my check topic, her acne started initially to recover, her marks faded and also to my shock, my recovery products worked! After four decades of creating my formulations for friends and family, with simply no purpose of making it a company, the need morphed into what’s today named, Origin Technology, and naturally increased.

With Origin Technology entirely move, my desire would be to encourage individuals to think by what they placed on not simply and their body the things they place in their physique. I do want to further the elegance revolution that’s presently getting impetus and enhance the club for mdash & elegance elements; which makes it predominant for beauty items to become wholesome clear and efficient.

As my interests outside Origin Technology, I desire to awaken every single day understanding I&rsquo for;ve created an optimistic effect on rsquo & another person;s existence.

I had been born therefore touring the planet is essential to &mdash aswell my joy; whether it s for that easy enjoyment of encountering finding elements for Origin Technology, worldwide food, or giving through function.

2. Thanks much for opening about your life-experience that is challenging. I’m therefore impressed from the reality you channeled it and required a disastrous situation. Inside your viewpoint, why is Origin Science’s skincare items diverse from every other organic skincare organization available?

What truly sets Origin Technology aside from organic skin treatment businesses that are additional is our excessively high-standard for quality, skin-wholesome elements. To put it simply, we’re really specific as it pertains to finding our elements, and we don’t move aside from cost, on quality.

We firmly think quality moves together with outcomes and effectiveness. The larger the standard, the more nutrient-dense the elements, the greater the outcomes are for the customers.

Beyond providing quality products’ significance, it’s something which is usually uncommon to locate within the beauty business, we& rsquo ethics that sets us aside. Our objective hasn’t visited function as the greatest, fastest-growing organization available since Origin Technology was a serendipitous happening.

In Root’s primary Technology is just a little group of people who awaken every single day having a desire to assist people.

We’ve experienced company since 2014 as well as in the final 24 months there has been possibilities to reduce our expenses through more affordable/reduced quality elements, weaken our items with synthetics/water, or join colour/fragrance developments; nevertheless, we’ve selected to not waiver from our objective: to help make the best quality, result-driven, organic skincare accessible — items that function and therefore are advantageous to the skin and all around health.

3. Your point is described by you like ldquo a &; rdquo & relevant multivitamin;. Inform the things they do and me about a number of your elements.

Our ingredients all are selected due to their vitamin information that was natural, and we find to make use of just the many nutrient-dense elements available. Each item is full of nutrients supplements and essential fatty acids all crucial components.

For example oil is renown for getting reduction to problems for example acne, eczema delicate skin its restorative qualities on skin, and calming skin that’s been subjected to radiation. This vitamin giant includes track nutrients and ELIZABETH, A, vegetable sterols.

Another vitamin giant we use our serum formulas in all is oil, that has been analyzed because of its amazing injury healing results on pimples burns ndash; reduce look and it’s been proven to significantly enhance therapeutic period.

Oil includes anti-inflammatory antibiotic and qualities, which gas its capability safeguard and to restore skin. In me might ramble for times these are simply two of the almost hundred elements we utilize, but trust me, the component geek.

4. so what can you reveal about Iceland which makes it therefore unique? I really hope to go to oneday quickly. Where must I proceed? (P.S. I guarantee to not move on the indigenous crops, obviously)

Iceland is unique in my experience since it s among the not many locations on the planet where you are able to encounter effective, uncooked, pristine character in isolation, and where you are able to experience completely secure.

Since the property is marked however noticeably stunning Iceland is exclusive, also rsquo & it;s difficult to not be impressed from the components. I’m hardly humble this little area of only 300 hasbeen an incubator for designers, a lot of gifted artists and artists; and experience thankful and really happy to possess been created and elevated there.

Our suggestion for anybody planning for a journey would be to rentacar and push round the nation, to help you encounter directly all of the views and areas — including thousand-year old lava areas, geysers, falls, glaciers, warm springs, and also the enchanting fishing towns that point the coastline.

I recently went round the nation for that very first time, and came across the absolute most lovable small city four hours north of Reykjavik, named Hofsos. They’ve a residential area swimming (common in most Icelandic towns) that overlooks the Atlantic Sea — it had been amazing. Like I had been skating about the fringe of the planet I thought. There aren& rsquo. It is highly recommended by me!

5. I’m worried about both acne and creases (enjoyment!) Which kind of lifestyle program can you recommend for my scenario? Must my program change during each period?

Maintain your easy that is program. Consume wholesome (an anti inflammatory diet is very good for acne and creases), reduce tension, rest more, workout, and utilize natural, nutrient-dense skincare.  Okay, perhaps that doesn trust that good stuff take some time, and & rsquo audio so easy; simply take baby-steps. By investing in one-product point that works for the themes start wants.

I believe the largest error anybody could make from numerous businesses and is utilizing way too many items. You never understand when the formulations understand which items will work and never working out for you, or works nicely together.

Take a look at skincare mdash exactly the same method you’d your diet plan &; the easier, the solution, the greater the outcomes. Regularity is crucial!

A great program requires cleaning each morning and evening (utilizing a mild, low-draining cleansing), exfoliating one or two occasions each week, hiding once a week and moisturizing each morning and night.

You will find no “ rdquo & weight loss supplements; aka short-cuts in skincare. Overnight change usually includes harmful unwanted effects and is impractical.

Don t overlook that skin that is excellent begins on the cellular-level, which means the skin must be fed by you . Meaning you are able to’t anticipate the skin maintenance systems to complete all of the function and consume lasagna and snacks all day long. Consume a healthier, supplement- rich diet, full of skin-plumping meats and fats. I of consuming healthful fats MA large supporter! Seeds, walnuts, cashews and avocados are a few for after I m on the run of my favorites.

So far as acne can be involved, please don the skin dries out! Among the greatest misconceptions available is that acrylic is the adversary, and the fact that you have to dry up the skin when coping with acne. Yes, aka nutrient oils, packaged oils, are bad; nevertheless, natural, minimally-processed plant-based oils focus on creases and acne, hand-inhand.

A great oil-based serum such as for example Origin Technology’s Childhood Serum, functions to combat acne aggressors for example extra gas generation. Additionally, rsquo & it;s qualities that are antibacterial maintain acne-creating germs away. The EFA’s (Fatty Acids) and supplements natural in Origin Technology’s organic formulations can help wait indicators of aging and fat your skin, reducing the look of current traces.

Whilst the months change, alter your program to meet up the requirements of one’s skin. Along with choosing a wealthier, more moisturizing serum within the winter season you might only have to hide every fourteen days.

On days t provide the skin a rest use any makeup and don& rsquo utilize anything more, allow the skin breath. While increases moisture and increase, choose a lotion that is light and application per week hiding once.

6. What’s the significance of presentation your items in dim-colored glass containers? Because of the ingredients that are 100% natural, should your items be refrigerated by me?

The dim-colored glass, that will be really purple glass, was selected because of its capability to normally protect the elements within by preventing the entire spectral range of visible-light — using the exclusion of the purple element, that has been analyzed for both its defensive and improvement impact on natural substance.

Quite simply, boost and the purple glass containers help prolong our products’ efficiency. This effective mixture keep maintaining their efficiency and decreases the destruction of ingredients, producing organic items keep going longer. Additionally, we consider actions to make sure that our items remain powerful and clean, by utilizing pumps in the place of droppers protecting launch of germs, and our serums from oxidation.

We don’t include some of our items and water, as water is just a breeding-ground for germs. Goggles and your exfoliant are dust based, and our serums all are place gas based. Because they include organic types of additives for example E Vitamin that you don’t have to refrigerate some of our items. We use things that possess a shelf-life of a minumum of one to 2 decades. Essential to efficiency and our quality is our distinctive standard of producing.

We create our items in micro amounts bi weekly, to make sure our clients are getting the finest items feasible. We suggest, that our products are used by our clients again, for efficiency and optimum quality — as it pertains for your beauty items, if they are natural a great guideline to check out.
