I strive to be environmentally conscious both in my personal life and at work. I believe in healthy people as well as a healthy planet. As such, I incorporate earth friendly practices whenever possible. Here is some of what I am doing.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
While some disposable items are necessary, I try to cut back on those that aren't. I recycle everything that I can.
Ambience and lighting
I use CFLs instead of conventional light bulbs. They last longer and use 75% less energy.
Did you know that up to 60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bodies. Many drugstore creams contain chemicals that can be irritating to the skin or even carcinogenic. From my massage lotions and oils to my cleaning products and laundry detergent, I use only products with natural ingredients. No toxic chemicals. All of my massage lotions and oils are organic. I use pure jojoba oil which is hypoallergenic and will not clog your pores.
I believe in supporting local. Whenever possible I purchase locally sourced products.
