As we are becoming more environmentally conscious, most of us as consumers are trying to figure out how to contribute to the green fight and save our planet. It seems that most of our efforts are inconsequential and a mere drop in the ocean, however, I do not want to get discouraged. Although governments and big companies can make a bigger difference, we can also contribute to an eco-friendlier society. When I was looking up ways in which I can be more zero-waste, I found out that the textile or fashion industry is one of the biggest contributors to the pollution of the planet.

Cooking, cleaning, gardening, colouring with the kids, working out… it seems that our pour hands can never take a break and rest. Since we use our hands to do most of the chores around the house, it is essential to also take care of them once we’ve finished with our work so that they can look nice and smooth. Generally, most women tend to spend the little free time that they have for pampering taking care of their skin and hair and often forget to give their hard-working hands some love

We’ve all had bad hair days at one point or another in our lives but for some of us it seems like most of the year consists of them and it’s not something a simple bun or wearing a hat can fix.
