Green Tip Tuesday - HAB

 Good afternoon.... this week I got some samples in the mail from Garnier Fuctis. I don't use this kinda of shampoo but then I kept on reading about their new initiative, "Pure Clean." They have joined up with TerraCycle, which I support (turn trash into new things) and thought I'd let ya'll know and see what you thought?

Would you pay more money for an item that will be recycled and turned into a new product (sold again)? Me? I really wouldn't, but I thought about it and I have bought "Green Toys." Which are also made of recycled items. And there are some pretty good coupons for these products and I can get them pretty cheap.... You decide for yourself.

Here's some more info on the project.... This new line of shampoo (Pure Clean) is made of 94% biodegradable (Conditioner is 92% biodegradable). This is important because it helps keep the down water cleaner. And they claim that the remaining ingredients are "certified non-ecotoxic." This HAB (oh, HAB means Health & Beauty!) briggade started on April 11th, with a big kick-off in Time Square. Don't know where I was because I didn't hear about it.

You can either join this brigade or just keep on recycling like normal. I usually take my empty HAB bottles to the mall and leave them at the Dillards store... Oh geez, I forgot the name of the company. But it's one of the "natural" make-up counters in the mall. They have a bin, everytime I go it's almost always EMPTY! But when I leave it's like half full, lol.

HAVE A GREEN TUESDAY!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
