I found this article when surfing the internet.  This is so cool, I hope we see something like this in the United States at some point.  What a great way to live with !  This building is in , Italy; it is a 5 story mini-forest.  Trees grow right within the apartments!

Not only is it different, but also functional as the trees offer, what they do best, cleaning the air of CO2 pollutants.   Planted in pots, they have room to grow too!  How about you?  You game to live in a real live “”?

Natural Doesn’t Always Mean Good

Are you what you eat?

The old adage “you are what you eat” isn’t always true. And these day’s it’s good to remember if you can’t eat it you probably shouldn’t be putting it on your body either.  May people believe they are getting products that are good for them and their families when they go shopping. Did you know that there is no requirements behind using the words healthy. Sad but true, companies can label their products however they want. When it comes to this type of hype, and many consumers are none the wiser, whether it be food or products. With a little research it’s easy to learn how to differentiate what you’re buying for your family.  Here are few tips.

The U.S. Needs Chemical Policy Reform

We Need Federal Chemical Policy Reform

Out of nearly 100,000 being used in the body and skin care industry today, less than 10% of them have been tested for safety! Did you know… the FDA does not require pre-market testing or health studies before products are sold.  They have left it up to you, the consumer, to read the labels and do your own research; to check out what all those ingredients, you can’t spell or pronounce, are doing to your body.

Since 1976 the US has banned only 5 chemicals to the 1500 that have been banned in the European Union; and we’ve only banned a total of 11 in our history!  That’s right, just 11! AND we haven’t passed any new regulatory laws on cosmetic ingredients since 1938!

We did pass the Toxic Substances Control Act  in 1976, but it falls far short of what is truly needed. Our government is getting ready to update the but it’s leaving it to the Chemical Companies, lobbyists, to write it!  Unbelievable!  We need real reform and States need the ability to enforce any regulations that are put into place.

Breast Cancer Funds – Why Needs Reform

Toxic chemicals are know to create major health issues including, Infertility, Birth Defects, Reproductive Problems, Learning Disabilities, not just Skin Allergies and some studies even include Cancer in this list!  In her average daily skincare routine the average woman uses over 500 chemicals everyday.  With the skin absorbing between 60-80% of what you put on it and being the largest organ in the body, we should adopt the stance “if you can’t eat it and you can’t pronounce it, you probably shouldn’t be putting it on your body”.  Studies show that percentage increased in children by 40-50%, putting them at an even higher risk for disease when exposed to these toxin ingredients.

These toxins are lurking in our homes, kitchens, and our bathrooms.   Have you read the ingredients in your favorite products lately?  You might want to check them out.  Here are a couple of great apps that can help you evaluate the products your family uses.
