Say Goodbye to …

Straws!

We really need to KISS them goodbye.

I also have mentioned before and think they are aging our lip areaย  faster by the pursing gesture as we sip and suck on the straw. Don’t you agree?

I know some restaurants have stopped serving plastic straws with drinks and that’s a great step! But I read an article over the weekend that mentioned how the plastic straw we sip our drinks with and all things plastic and what they are doing to the planet. It really really got me thinking.

Personally I don’t use straws very often BUT with that said…I am going to use the last few plastic straws in my kitchen and really make an attempt to protect Mother Earth and do my share and be more eco-friendly. How about you? Haveย  you already stopped using them or gone to paper or the new reusable straws?

I’d rather see my lip imprint on a glass of iced tea and not choke an animal in the sea!!! Let me know your thoughts.

Give the Earth some love today!

IMG_1052 earth day blogToday is the day… Earth Day.ย  Time to start to be more green or continue our quest.

Plant a tree! I am on the hunt for a lemon tree.

Plant and grow your own herbs. It doesn’t have to be big start small. My new pretty crop outside my kitchen door is filled with basil,parsley,peppermint,rosemary and spearmint.

Try reusing your small plastic and paper bags from shopping and line your garbage bags with them. Grab another for your car to tidy up your car after the day.

Save and recycle those extra hangers you may have from the dry cleaners.Next time you have clothes to be dropped off for dry cleaning again give them to the cleaners for reuse.

Need an instant lip conditioner and don’t have any or want a quick fix?

Dry lips can be smooth in seconds. Just got to your kitchen closet and grab some organic coconut oil. Swipe a 1/2 teaspoon or less into a mini bowl and apply on your lips. Any extra can be rubbed on your cuticles to soften them up.

Make fruit or veggie infused water daily. Fill it in a to go bottle and enjoy on the go all day. Or just have a pitcher handy with a fun yummy mix. So much better for you than a sweet tea,iced coffee or soft drink!

Oily skin or hot flashing?ย  Start using Asian Powder papers. 70 sheets of joy to a booklet that fits in your purse for on the go refreshment and touch ups.

Did you know there are bamboo and other eco-friendly and vegan loving makeup brushes? Give them a whirl.

Shop with using reusable totes.

Say Bye Bye to plastic straws…they not only cause wrinkles around your lips they are bad for the earth.

So enjoy a little green in your life and do some good too!

Take time to smell the daisies,herbs and grass today.

Happy Earth Day!

I hope you are loving her today!

Say no to styrofoam cups,skip the plastic straws and recycle,repurpose and reuse!
