School is back and session and summer might be winding down, but that doesn’t mean we’re done with the sun.

What’s Lurking in Your Beauty Products?

I have a question for you, dear readers: How many beauty and personal care products do you and your family members use per day? Myself, I go through the usual products: soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, lotion, sunscreen (sometimes), makeup (sometimes), deodorant. The average adult uses between 9 and 15 products a day, according to a survey conducted by the Environmental Working Group. Here’s what you might not realize: By using standard, conventional products, the average woman puts more than 150…

I’m in Love with a Frying Pan, and I Don’t Care Who Knows It

In our never-ceasing effort to rid ourselves of all of the chemicals lurking in our home, we recently discarded all of our nonstick/Teflon pans, especially after learning that they can kill pet birds and cause flu-like symptoms in humans, among a host of other problems.
