Our advice for @plasticfreejuly challenge
Use alternative deodorants
Most deodorants contain microplastics and also aluminium and other ingredients that don't belong under your armpits.
Therefore it’s important to pay attention to the ingredients of your cosmetic products. It doesn't matter if you make your own deodorant or use products with natural ingredients. It’s important to pay attention to what's inside. We mix our deodorant ourselves and are very satisfied with it. There are different recipes for DIY deodorants, which can be mixed together quickly and cheaply. In addition, there are more and more manufacturers who offer deodorants in jars using natural ingredients.
It’s also possible live without deodorant completely and to feel comfortable at the same time.
It's important to be aware, as always
We’re delighted to have Cove Cake Design on board with Going Green. Owner Suzanne Brady manages the award winning cake business from home in Sandycove. They make the most beautiful cakes and have attracted over 50k followers on Instagram - @covecakedesign . Already prioritising local, seasonal produce and composting her waste, Suzanne has decided to take things further. Her main actions are outlined in the picture above and in more detail on her blog (see our story). Really impressive work! #covecakedesign#goinggreen#glasthulesandycovegreen#plasticfree#plasticfreejuly#sandycove
Problem 🚫 There are so many a**holes that chuck trash out of their windows as they whiz by. Or toss a cigarette butt on the ground. And don’t think twice. But you’re not one of them— you put your trash in the closest trash can so it’s taken away. . .
But where is that ‘AWAY’? That away is either a burning pile — inhaled by all of us 💨 or it is in a (sometimes illegal) dump unsuspecting hungry animals fall prey to—either by suffocation of toxic build-up 🐘🐂🐕🦅
Solution ⚡️ think before WE buy. We are all consuming single-use plastic everywhere; and we don’t have to. There are enough alternatives. Do your part, say no to PLASTIC BAGS, say no to PLASTIC STRAWS, and PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES. With a little bit of awareness it gets easier, we promise. .
The alternative is that our legacy is a grey world filled with waste dumps and our wild animals slowly become a myth.
It’s our turn now. What will WE do? 🌏
Friday is bath day!!! Well. Actually it normally is pants off Friday but Jessie doesn't wear pants.
Anyway, we have been using this shampoo in an effort to help us combat a flea issue and I am happy to report it looks like we are getting on top of it! This soap is better than any other dog shampoo I have ever used. She smells amazing after her bath without that gross 'I have just had a dog bath smell'; and stays smelling clean (until she rolls in something questionable); her itch settles and she is super soft. I cannot recommend it enough!!!

Human soap available too!!! .

Asparagus crowns are in! Home grow your own asparagus faster with crowns, that will continue to produce for 20 years or more. Growing asparagus is a labour of love that we think is well worth the wait.
Home made sensory toy. Lol..Mother-in-law saved this cup from its dumpster fate and made it into a toy for little Rui.
Honestly feel that baby toys are a waste because he plays with it for 2 seconds and gets distracted by the drawer knob which can keep him occupied for the next 30min.
So far I've filled empty mineral bottles with little trinkets and even just tap water and he's very satisfied with them too.
But his favourite thing to play with is still the dustbin and the S hook hanging from the drawer. 💁♀️ #journeytozerowaste#journeytozerowastesg#zerowaste#zerowastesg#repurposed#goinggreen
I like this. A lot. 🌳 👣🌳👣🌳👣🌳👣🌳👣🌳👣🌳👣🌳 TAKING STEPS TOWARD A MORE GREEN FUTURE
Exciting news from our U.S. warehouse -- we're modernizing our packing slips for a more streamlined, eco-friendly experience. We're starting to print your invoices behind the address labels, which is expected to speed up how we process orders -- not to mention, save an estimated 1,440 trees in 2018 and create a reduction of nearly one ton of CO2 emissions per year! We expect our transition to be complete by mid-August.
One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to put safe, plant-based products in people’s hands that can make a big impact in their life. Whether it is oils or supplements for a healthier lifestyle, laundry or dish soap for a healthier home, or makeup or skincare for a healthier self-image, it never gets old to see that empowerment take place!
I am getting ready to send a sample of YL’s new Maximum Strength Acne Treatment to a friend with a teen who wants something effective that works FAST without the drying and chemicals found in other products. The active ingredient in this product comes from wintergreen essential oil 🙌🏻
But I need some help. I’m big into testing our products so I can feel good about them. Typically I test them on myself, but my skin has been mostly clear postpartum so this one has been hard for me and I don’t have teens!
Soooo I’m looking for 5 volunteers to test this product for me! Here’s the catch: you CANNOT be a Young Living member. Y’all, I love our members, but I want some opinions from folks who aren’t used to YL’s products in their homes!
Ideally I would love folks who would be willing to take some photos of their progress (photos do not need to show your identity!) but that’s not required! In exchange for your honest opinion via messenger with me, I will send samples of this Acne Treatment along with another couple of goodies! (You don’t need to be the user of the product if you have a teen or someone else in your home who would rather be the tester!)
Comment below with your email address or send me a DM and I will pick 5 folks to help and grab some freebies in the process!
Not sure about you... but I don’t like when my 🥗 is drenched in heavy dressing 🙅🏻♀️
I like to taste the natural flavor of greens and the crisp texture in each bite 😋
I personally LOVE spraying 🥑 oil directly on to my salad with a little bit of s+p and vinegar... and VOILA!!! There’s👌🏼 salad for me ❣️
How do you like your salad? 😉
