ECO FRIENDLY MAKEUPS: What are you doing to help our mother planet?

Do you ever wonder what you can do to help the earth? Maybe you don't care right now, but think of your grandchildren and how their lives would be if we don't start to take some actions now! Why do you think we emphasize so much on global warming? Because the cause of that is US!!

Here is some fun facts to know:

*One 98 foot tree with 200,000 leaves can absorb 11,359 gallons of water and breathe it into the air in just one growing season.

* I guess you can't hear this one enough compact fluorescent light bulb (LED) consume up to 75% less energy and they last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

*Appliances like TVs and microwaves keep using electricity even when not in use, so be sure to unplug before leaving for the holidays.

*The average home can accumulate as much as 100 pounds of household hazardous waste in the basement, garage, and storage closets. I have one word for you - declutter! And do it right by disposing of waste appropriately. Go to your local recycling centers website for details on what waste goes where.

*An average family of four uses 400 gallons of water every day. Evertime you flush the toilet, it takes 1.6 gallons of water.

* Shortening your showers by 1- 2 minutes, you can save up to 2600 liters of water per month.

*Make recycling easier by putting recycle bins inthe rooms where you use the product.

*Restrict use of plastic shopping bags. Plasticbags are not biodegradable – they do not decompose fully.In addition, the ink is made up of cadmium and is highlytoxic when released. Paper bags are reusable andbiodegradable. Choose paper instead of plastic. OR simply purchase a cute reusable tote like this:

*Don't release helium balloons outside. It mayappear to be a beautiful experience – but releasingballoons into the air is dangerous. The balloons cancause suffocation or starvation in animals by blockingstomach or air valves. Metallic balloons can cause poweroutrages when they get caught in power lines.
