But even if you eat a healthy vegan diet, you're doing your body (and the planet) a disservice if you're wearing synthetic chemical-based cosmetics and clothing. In the following articles you'll learn what products are safest, most eco-friendly and effective, and find out how to make some yourself!

Today I went to an event at the T Salon in West Hollywood. I have been to the cafe/store before and really enjoyed it - almost all of their desserts are vegan, the building is very eco-friendly, and their tea is fabulous (video review coming soon). I wasn't sure what the event was going to be like, but I was excited because there was going to be a demo on how to make organic skin care products. I was also intrigued after hearing rave reviews of the book Gorgeously Green, so I looked forward to learning about Do It Gorgeously. The event turned out to be fantastic!

Winners: Melanie, KrisL, and Vicola!

Once you start using one you'll wonder what took you so long! There are a lot of different options, but the one I've used the most is called The DivaCup.

You may have read my post last week about the importance of avoiding plastic bottles. After seeing the documentary Tapped I went home and started recycling all my plastic containers. Then I walked into my bathroom and realized almost all of my body products were in plastic, and I felt defeated. Luckily, I found an answer to the problem at Natural Products Expo West.
