LOOK GOOD, FEEL GOOD

Source: Daily Vanity I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that we all like to look good. And you know what they say -- when you feel good, you look good. It comes naturally. Thus, we’re going to focus this post on green alternatives to skincare. You can feel good about yourself knowing that you’re saving the Earth, and look good as well! What’s there to lose? That’s a rhetorical question, if you didn’t realise. It’s most definitely a beneficial situation for all the parties involved! Bar Soaps We’ve talked about bar soaps in our previous blog post, if you missed that. Bar soaps aren’t just for your body, they make for a great facial wash as well! Of course, the skin on your face is oft

KEEPING CLEAN, WHILE GOING GREEN.

Source: Sustainable Living Shop We’ve talked about keeping our homes clean, but what about ourselves? Look in your bathrooms, plastic has invaded every area of our lives! It’s everywhere, but that doesn’t mean it has to stay status quo. Read on to discover sustainable alternatives to integrate into your daily routines! In The Shower Source: BodyRefinedbyLaBelle Bar Soaps/Shampoo/Conditioner Everything you could possibly need to keep yourself clean can probably be found in bar form. When getting bar soaps, make sure you don’t buy those laden with chemicals! We’re not sure about you but we’re not entirely jumping at the chance to wash ourselves in chemicals. Look for soaps made with botanical

KEEP YOUR HOME CLEAN AND GREEN

The zero waste lifestyle might seem intimidating when you first start out. Chances are, once you start being more aware of your consumption and disposal habits, you will start to realize the sheer amount of waste you produce. Needless to say, it’s an impossible task to jump right in and immediately eliminate all sources of waste in your lifestyle. That, of course, is not an excuse to not do it at all. You know what parents always say -- good values start from home! This is why we’re bringing the zero waste lifestyle back home this week, with a focus on all the things you will need to start practicing zero waste right in your own home. If you missed it, be sure to check out some of our previo

EMBRACING MINIMALISM

One of the best things you can do for the environment is simply to buy and consume less. Our wardrobe is usually the most salient sign of our consumerist nature. On average, it’s been found that a typical Singaporean owns approximately 100 pieces of apparel. Yet, other studies have shown that we only wear 20% of our clothes regularly -- that makes about 20 pieces of apparel. Now if we just trim down our wardrobe to just that 20% that we wear regularly and stick to it, imagine just how much waste could be avoided. Well, this blog post will help you do just that. Here are two simple ways to trim down your wardrobe and maintain a minimalist, yet still sophisticated closet that can get you throu

HERE'S HOW YOU CAN SAVE THE EARTH, YOUR WARDROBE AND YOUR WALLET AT THE SAME TIME!

Maybe you’ve read out previous blog post on fast fashion and decide that you want to change your lifestyle habits a little, until you open your bursting wardrobe and realize that you’ve no idea how to start. There’s always that constant itch to update your wardrobe that you just can’t help but scratch. If you want to take a small step towards saving the Earth while still staying in trend, here are some tips and tricks to do so! Secondhand & Thrift Stores Source: Refash While the rapid rate at which clothing is being thrown out is not ideal, it isn’t a problem that is likely to go away overnight. This problem does, however, open up a huge market for secondhand clothing. The best part is, it’s

THIS IS WHAT FAST FASHION IS DOING TO OUR HOME

It’s that time of the year again - the Great Singapore Sale! Get ready to buy tons of clothes at discounted prices that you will never wear! See something you like? Get it! But wait, that sign right there says the you can get the second piece for 50% off. You know what that means -- why get one when you can get two! Don’t worry if the second piece isn’t something you love, you’ll find a reason to wear it...someday. On a more serious note, we all love a good deal. If you’re able to obtain a piece of clothing that you really like without giving up an arm and leg, why not, right? But do you really need that piece of clothing on top of that bursting wardrobe you already have at home? That’s ano

NOT ALL FOOD IS MADE EQUAL

Source: Lifeway Kefir “Oh my gosh, that looks sooooo good, it’s making me hungry.” Is that a sentiment that has resonated with you at some point or another in your life? Well, you definitely aren’t the only one. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that we all like pretty things. Or at least, we prefer them to “ugly” ones. We’ll be the first to admit that we’re no exception to that rule. It’s human nature, after all, to prefer more attractive-looking things. Heck, even babies prefer to look at more conventionally attractive faces. In our quest to always look for pretty, perfect things, food has become an unsuspecting victim. These days, our Instagram feeds are flooded with pictures of

WHAT YOU BUY MAKES A DIFFERENCE - SUSTAINABLE PALM OIL

Source: The Asian Parent Singapore This landscape has become unfortunately familiar in the last couple of decades. While it hasn’t hit the 400 PSI high in a few years, the familiar acrid smell of burning still haunts us from time to time. We all know the detrimental effects of the haze, but what has it got to do with food and sustainable living? Well, we first have to take a deeper look into the cause of the haze to find out. The Origins of the Haze If you kept up with the news of the haze over the years, you’ll probably have heard that the primary cause is the slash-and-burn practices in agriculture. In recent decades, the rapid propagation of the palm and paper industry have caused these o

STORING FOOD THE ZERO WASTE WAY

Live to eat or eat to live? Either way, the common denominator there is that all of us still have to eat. Food’s a necessity, but purchasing, cooking, storing, and consuming food all comes with so much waste! Eliminating the waste from this component of our daily lives can make a huge difference when it comes to reducing our impact on the environment. Thus, this week, we’re focused on everything food! In our previous blog post, we briefly touched on some of the ways you can grocery shop without the plastic. Shopping plastic-free is a great start, but you’ll realise soon after that it isn’t always that simple. Leftovers from a meal, that half an onion or lemon, loose herbs and condiments -- t

GROCERY SHOPPING WITHOUT THE PACKAGING

We all need food to survive, we can't simply cut it out just because it has a little bit of plastic on it. However there are alternative ways to obtain your favourite food and drinks while still saving the earth. In our previous blog we discussed about eco friendly ways to prep and pack your bag for a day out. In it we also mentioned the things to bring along when you are out grocery shopping: Reusable Tote Bag Produce Bags Mason Jars Containers (If needed) One of the easiest switch is to ditch the supermarkets. They tend to have their produce in unnecessary plastic packaging to supposedly prevent cross contamination and to keep them fresher. Sure they are convenient but so is your local wet
