by Megan McLaughlin

You haven't lived until you try Naked Juice! It is delicious and its creators are committed to making the world a greener place!

"From fruit to blender to bottle to gulp, Naked Juice is dedicated to making it easy for you to contribute to a greener world." And just how are they doing this? They use recycled plastic bottles that can be recycled again and again. They also have big plans for the future...
By 2010, they are planning to reduce their oil consumption by 57,000 barrels a year, which, in turn, will cause them to use 48% less energy in the process!

Now for the best part - the juice: 100% all-natural, 100% juice made from the best fruits and vegetables, they never add sugar, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors! Each of their bottles contains over 3 servings of fruit and they are oh-so-delicious.

Do yourself a favor and give Naked Juice a try! You'll be helping Mother N. out as well! Look for these guys in your local grocer...

Green Your Face

by Megan McLaughlin

Most girls have certain makeup products they can't live without, but if going green is more important than your beauty needs, you should be checking out all of the natural products that are out there today! This one might be for the girls, but there's a few things that gals and guys should know about clean, green, healthy skin.

According to Green Daily, "Unless it says 100% certified USDA organic, there's no certainty that all of the ingredients are organic. And natural can mean almost anything!" This is especially true when dealing with makeup and skincare products. Today, it is trendy to try "mineral" powders, blushes and other makeups that are being marketed as "Natural." However, if you pay close attention, you hardly ever see the USDA Certification. This Organic Makeup and Skincare Resource can point you in the right direction!

This is for everyone (guys listen up too) - SUNSCREEN! Protecting your skin from harmful, damaging UVA and UVB rays is so important. Luckily, there are many organic products that can help you battle these blasted beams of light. Pristine Planet offers some great advice and direction on products that are good for you and the earth. "Kiss My Face" lip balm is great for protecting your lips and brands like "Badger" make an organic sunscreen.
