Make Your July 4th and Entire Summer Eco-Friendly!

Happy holiday weekend!  Here are a few easy ways Everything She Wants has discovered to make your July 4th weekend green:

Fashion





Threads 4 Thought proves that sustainable apparel can also be fashionable. To make its trendy tops, shorts, and rompers, the brand uses organic cotton and recycled polyester fashioned from discarded water bottles. Threads 4 Thought garments are made in fair trade factories and are available online and at select Whole Foods' stores.  A portion of every sale is donated to charity.

Beauty





Get primped for your July 4th barbecue or party with totally vegan Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.  The Pure Cosmetic Pigments (see above images) come in festive red, white, and blue shades. But since they are pure colors, they should be used sparingly or mixed with other natural cosmetic bases such as moisturizers or primer.

Personal Hygiene


Put on Pure Pitz to keep fresh all summer long. Unlike mainstream deodorant brands, Pure Pitz is made with certified organic ingredients and aluminum-free baking soda.  The small but powerful natural deodorant effectively neutralizes odor with a subtle fragrance of pure essential oils.

Cooking


In case you plan to prepare your burgers and franks indoors on the 4th, consider using the Original Green Pan.  This non-stick, scratch-resistant aluminum skillet has an interior coated with Thermolon Endurance, which is completely free of chemicals.
