When giving or receiving a massage it is important to use a product that is not too greasy. You want to ensure that the skin isn't going to leave the recipient feeling like they rolled around in a vat of butter. If you have ever used greasy oil, you know what I mean...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz A massage should be as relaxing as possible. The addition of organic massage oil with delicious scents and smooth textures add instead of detract from the experience. Remember the skin is the biggest organ we've got and the basic rule applies that if you can't eat it, you shouldn't put it on your skin.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The uplifting feel of a farmer's market is contagious. The energy of the greens plus the efforts of the dedicated farmers shines through. In this urban garden project, the source of that dedication can be traced right to the back yard. Urban gardens are sprouting up every where from empty lots to skinny boulevards to discarded five-gallon buckets. This is real creativity at work, turning unused potential into a market fare.

Do chemicals found in the baby foods really affect your child's health? Many people mistakenly believe that chemicals in our food are digested and expelled as waste; however, in reality, they get absorbed by the body and accumulate. It is safe to assume that, if it happens in adults it happens in babies, too...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: What food a baby starts life with sets the stage for so many outcomes from what tastes the baby will grow up to prefer to what chemicals and toxins we put in their tiny bodies at such a young age. It's time to think twice about those little jars and perhaps consider an organic alternative.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: What a great organic idea: Use what nature gave us to make life better. The true meaning of organic is about utilizing the ingredients on Mother Earth, as unadulterated as possible. Now a grass-cutting goat just makes so much sense. Rent one near you!

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and several State OSHA programs are investigating questions and complaints from hair salon owners and workers about possible formaldehyde exposure from using Brazilian Blowout and other hair smoothing products. Some of these products have been labeled as "formaldehyde-free..."

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Beauty can come at a price. Cost is only one aspect of what is charged. Shimmering hair may soak your body with toxins such as formaldehyde, a price that will may play hard on your health in the future. Brazalian Blowout and other hair smoothing products are being investigated by OSHA as dangerous and the product labeling as misleading. Many countries, counties, and states are not waiting and starting their own call for caution, and in some cases, even removed some lines from the market.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: In a few short minutes, this film explains, with incredibly, clever humor what it is like to "handle" bureaucracy and beat them at their own game. We've all stood in line; made copies; and tackled tough clerks. The inventive humor in this film will hit home for us all (and an extra special smile will come to those who live in Latin American or maybe Europe!)

Crohns disease? What’s that? I had never heard of Crohns until I was diagnosed with it 2005. An inflammatory bowel disease, Crohns can be debilitating, embarrassing, and painful all at once. It is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract. Here I was a perfectly healthy 21 year old girl, just moved in with my fiancé, my whole life ahead of me, nothing to slow me down; man was I wrong! I thought I was invincible...

by Jadda Miller
from Worldwatch Institute’s Nourishing the Planet

My grandparents live on a farm where they grow beans and raise sheep. They’re doing what people used to do in the past, grow food and eat food. What I want to do is introduce urban communities to rural communities and harmonize the two. A city cannot survive without the country...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Most restaurants receive their food from a truck that unloads boxes of canned goods and corporate farmed vegetables. Arthur Potts Dawson, a famed chef, restaurateur, and author works in several areas teaching restaurants the techinques of becoming sustainable, organic, and eco-friendly. This interview gives an insight on how it is possible to become eco-friendly in the world of dining out.

Organic Living


by Annie Leonard

The fact is that many of us already share a Big Idea for a better world. Instead of a wasteful, growth-at-all-costs economy that fails both people and the planet, hundreds of millions of us want a new economy that puts safe products, a healthy environment, and happy people first...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The Story of Stuff keeps pushing the envelope on creating a better life for our planet. The new movie, The Story of Change, brings much of Annie Leonard's work together. The voice of unity, she claims will bring our planet to a place of peace, less toxicity, and more awareness so we can continue moving optimistically ahead for the generations to come.

 

Organic Living


 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: We all know to keep harsh, chemical cleaners away from children. But could using them so freely, as is so often advertised, cause us damage too? Women's Voices for the Earth presents this short animation that gets us thinking about what we spray in the name of "killing all those germs." Plain old soap, vinegar, and things like Borax can keep all those bad germs away just effectively and with a greater sense of peace of mind.

If the only seaweed you’ve ever eaten is the nori wrapped around a sushi roll, then you’ll be excited to discover an abundant variety of sea vegetables...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Seaweed is touted as a super-food. But it's time to unwrap this fabulous, organic, plant for all the benefits it can give a body and mind. Seaweed health benefits are known to many cultures and eaten and enjoyed as a dependable and remarkable food source.
