5 Ways to Do Your Part This Earth Day

Today is Earth Day and here at Seed, we'd like to share five of our favorite ways to do your part for the environment not just on April 22, but every single day of the year. Small changes can have a big impact!

 

1. Still have old lightbulbs? Make the switch to LED or compact fluorescent bulbs. These bulbs last, on average, up to 15 times longer and consume 1/5 to 1/3 of the electricity.

2. Eliminate junk mail. There are apps now that can actually help you reduce your carbon footprint. How? With these apps, you snap a photo of the junk mail you do not wish and it removes you from the mailing list.

3. Did you know that there are over a TRILLION plastic bags out there? Carry reusable shopping bags. 

4. Do you grab a coffee in the drive-thru on your way to work? Think of the amount of cups you are tossing out each week. Most coffee shops have their own reusable travel mugs you can buy and will offer you a discount if you refill them. You don’t have to skip your drive-thru coffee and you will be helping the earth.

5. When you are doing the laundry, wash clothes in cold water. Not only will this save lots of energy, but cold water is better for your clothes. Really? Yes! Check out this great article we found in Smithsonian Magazine.

The best product for shaving? Hint: It's not from the drugstore!

Do you still use shaving cream from the drugstore?

Take a look at the back of the canister when you use it next time. Chances are, Triethanolamine and Propane are near the top of the ingredients listing.

  • Triethanolamine is an emulsifier and pH adjuster; can be especially hazardous when combined with Diazolidinyl Urea. Studies have shown that a large number of cosmetics with TEA (short for Triethanolamine) are contaminated with Nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic. (source)
  • Propane, a hydrocarbon, is a propellant. It helps give the product its mousse-like fluffy foam. It is extremely sensitizing to the lungs in moderate doses. It can be highly irritating to the skin, nasal passages and mucus membranes. More than 6,500 studies have been conducted on propane. It is a skin, lung, and eye irritant. (source)

The 5 best natural ingredients to tame dry, frizzy hair

We have shared many "hacks" using our products over the years. Before we had lip products, Rebecca would apply our body cream to her chapped lips. Before we came out with facial care, I used our fragrance free hand cream on dry patches. I use fragrance free body oil on my eye lashes to keep them shiny and as a cuticle oil, too.

Can Seed products be used on the hair? Yes, absolutely!

Our friend, Tori, uses our Soft Balm on her hair and Susan, one of our valued customers, shares this about our Body Oil:

"You should really include in your summary that this wonderful product is also amazingly healing for dry, brittle and frizzy hair! It has made a remarkable difference where no other product has. Thank you for commitment for excellence!"

 

Let's take a look at why people keep sharing their love of Seed for helping improve the look and condition of their hair.
