Some of the most common harmful ingredients found in our everyday beauty products: . 🍂Parabens: Parabens are the most commonly used preservatives that prevent the growth of yeast, bacteria and mold in beauty products. Parabens are known endocrine disruptors and can lead to hormonal imbalance. . 🍂Phthalates: Like parabens, phthalates are endocrine disruptors and can cause hormonal and reproductive problems. . 🍂Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)/Sodium Laureth Sulfate(SLES): These surfactants are major skin irritants and are widely used in shampoos, face washes, shower gels, toothpastes and many other beauty products. . 🍂Formaldehyde: Formaldehyde is used as a preservative in cosmetics. It’s a known carcinogen that is also linked to asthma and neurotoxicity. . 🍂Mineral Oil: It’s a petroleum by product that contains contaminants that could affect our health. It also clogs pores and increases the risk of acne and blackheads. . 🍂Synthetic Fragrance: Often the ingredients for Synthetic Fragrances are not listed in the ingredients list of products yet include harsh toxins like benzene derivatives, aldehydes, toluene, phthalates, allergens, endocrine disruptors, and irritants. . 🍂Triclosan: It's found in some toothpastes, antibacterial soaps, and body washes. Some evidence suggests it can mess with our thyroid hormone, which regulates metabolism. . 🍂Lead: Lead is a neurotoxin that can cause brain damage. Traditional eyeliners and lipsticks contain lead. . . . . . #cleanbeauty#greenbeauty#organicskincare#safeskincare#cleanbeautymovement#greenbeautymovement#crueltyfree
🌲🌲The Trump administration on Tuesday took a step toward opening up the pristine woodlands of Alaska’s Tongass National Forest to logging and road construction, saying it would prefer an end to all road-building restrictions throughout the forest🌲🌲 The move, which was widely expected, comes after years of prodding by successive Alaska governors and congressional delegations, which have pushed the federal government to exempt the Tongass, the nation’s largest national forest, from a Clinton-era policy known as the roadless rule, which banned logging and road construction in much of the national forest system. A final rule is not expected until next June.⠀ ⠀ The Forest Service announced that it had prepared a draft environmental study analyzing the impacts of altering or lifting the Roadless Rule in the Tongass forest, which includes 165,000 acres of old-growth hemlock, cedar and spruce trees. The study, which will be published this week, analyzed six possible changes to the rule. One option would maintain restrictions in 80 percent of the area currently protected by the rule, another would open up about 2.3 million acres to logging and construction, and another would lift all roadless rule restrictions from the forest.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ The Forest Service, backed by Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, called the lifting of the entire roadless rule in Tongass the administration’s “preferred option.”⠀ Supporters in Alaska said such a move would be an economic boon to their state, while conservationists lamented the possible destruction of vast areas of pristine old-growth forest.⠀ ⠀ What do you think? Should we put economic growth over forest destruction? _______________________________________________________
My absolute morning joy. ☀️ When I start my day this way, it’s always a good day. I’m refreshed, my cup is full and I can pour in to my busy day without feeling depleted. Self care isn’t always about spas and baths and a massage. Usually it’s 15 minutes of being quiet and intentional. A stop at @ob.beans for coffee on my way to the beach, watching the waves crash, quiet meditations, some gratitudes and a walk back home the long way along the beach. Perfection. What’s your perfect morning look like? #morningmotivation#fillyourcup#morningcoffee

Second time this week at @instock_nl restaurant, where all the items on the menu are made from surplus produce. Even the beer is made from rescued potatoes or unsold bread. The food is delicious and the beetroot brownie is to die for! Food coma 🤪 Instock has rescued over 800,000 kgs of excess produce since their start in 2014. #zerofoodwaste#teamfoodrescue @iamsterdam @dutchreview @visit_holland @klm
