Environmentally Mindful Periods

As we are all increasing our awareness of our impact not he environment we are becoming more conscious shoppers and looking for alternatives to reduce our waste. One huge waste creator is menstrual pads and tampons. Pads & Tampons make up for around 200,000 tonnes of waste per year and because most of them contain plastic, they take thousands of years to breakdown. Luckily for those that like the traditional period solutions of pads and tampons there are many brands that are now creating environmentally friendly versions. One Australian company doing this is Bamboo Babe, their pads are 100% bamboo, biodegradable and compostable.

Healthy Smoothies for Christmas Morning

Knowing what to eat on Christmas morning can be difficult. I find in my house we try not to eat because we know we're going to have a big lunch but that tends to mean we are starving by the time we arrive at the celebrations and pig out on all the appetisers! We also don't want to get into the habit of eating chocolate and other Christmas sweets on Christmas morning just because it's Christmas.

Is your baby washing in toxins? What are the safest Baby Shampoo’s & Washes?

When it comes to our precious little ones we want to be using the best products but it is extremely difficult to see through all the advertising and ingredients list to pick something that is truly safe on their delicate skin. We also get very conflicting messages, I have heard countless mums tell me how the hospital sent them home with Johnson & Johnson baby soap packs. The very company who is being sued by women who now have cancer after using their talcum powder. I'd be the first to admit that I used the Johnson & Johnson bedtime baby bath with my first until I heard of the lawsuit. I quickly changed brands to one my chemist recommended as a 'good brand', the brand was Aveeno. Advertised as gentle and calming I was none the wise that Aveeno is owned by Johnson and Johnson.
