I came to the group to send a friend info on gmo's and butterfly disappearance connection. Then I saw the comment Bobbi posted on the hair dyes. That is a great post- more people need to know about the damaging effects these chemicals have on your body and the environment! Thank you for sharing. I did not see anything on henna there, something I have been wanting to lean more about....

Let's keep these important conversations going- thank you all for caring and questioning!

Please do not support companies who use GMO crops; ( Genetically Modified Organisms - organisms whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.)

Another thing you can do to help the precious Monarch it to plant Milkweed! I planted one Milkweed and now they have sprouted all over the garden! The butterfly and other insects transport them during pollination, it's really amazing to see :)

Feng Shui says that the microwave is potentially the most dangerous of all household appliances. They have been found to emit low frequency radiation far in excess of that known to cause lymphatic cancer in children and are also thought to corrupt the molecular structure of food.

Also, microwave ovens can damage your health if they leak. You should have them checked annually as you would any other household fixtures.

They are not well regarded in Feng Shui.

I was thinking about the tip I posted about buying glass instead of plastic, and I'm really not sure which is better because with glass it is much heavier and therefore takes more energy to distribute. I guess even better would be containers made of recycled plastic. That way no more plastic is actually being made.

Green Tip
Make a conscious effort at the store to buy products in glass containers instead of plastic.

This is where I've gotten my shampoo and bodywash for the past few years. In my few years of searching this has been the best and cheapest I've found. Not only do they give you a list of all ingredients, they explain what those ingredients actually are. Also their perspective on SLS. www.commonsensefarm.com

Also, a while back when I looked up parabens I found this, "Parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen, which is known to play a role in the development of breast cancers." That was enough for me to order the paraben free lotion base. It's cool, you just add any scent you want and distilled water for your own desired thickness. www.naturesbouquet.com/body_lotion_hand_lotion.htm

Oh and about hair conditioner. Apple Cider vinegar helps with shine, but in order to detangle (especially for us with curly hair) you need something to condition You are absolutely right about commercial conditioners. The average mass produced ones have cheap/ bad indgrd. and are from a cruel company.

for everyday conditioner- I like / recommend Burts Bees, most of their products are vegan some have milk / honey/ beeswax.

for a deep conditioner ( once a week- once a month)- coconut oil is amazing as well as grape seed oil and just plain ol' olive oil works great too.

Jimmy~ I think 'Tom's of Maine' brand is great. I believe they are natural fragrance from lavender and calendula oil. I first found out about them from their toothpaste (which is great btw). Don't use Crest / Colgate / or any of the mass brands, they have so much bad stuff in them! so do the mouthwashes...

Kimberly~ I recently found out about a great nail polish line, which is vegan and free of bad chemicals http://www.sparitual.com/nail_lacquers/
