Get Good Goods

2018-07-09T18:30:17+00:00 July 14th, 2018|Clean Living, Clean Made LA, Clean Made Picks|

At a time when many of us are “voting with our wallet,” and buycotting what we don’t believe in, our moral compass directed us to Good Goods, and it’s definitely the kind of match we’d been looking for. Good Goods represents a new way of shopping, and a new generation of makers, business owners, brands, shopkeepers, [...]

Plastic Free July | Better Baggies: Wrap Without The Plastic

2018-07-02T23:17:50+00:00 July 14th, 2018|Clean Living|

Evoware, a start-up in Indonesia, is using seaweed as the basis for a food wrap that is edible, biodegradable, dissolvable in hot water, and even packed with vitamins and fiber! (It’s halal, too, which is comforting news to the majority of Indonesia’s population). Evoware is not stopping at sandwich wrap, either; they have plans [...]

Every single one of Goddess Garden's sunscreen lotions earns a score of 1 (the safest you can get), from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) -- that means the sunscreens are ranked as the top choice for UVA protection, and they've been shown to provide a good balance of UVA protection in relation to SPF.

2018-07-02T23:16:06+00:00 July 10th, 2018|Clean Living, Clean Reads|

A shopping center in Sweden is the answer to our vintage and thrift store dreams. ReTuna Återbruksgalleria is a mall with 14 shops, a restaurant, exhibition area, and conference rooms, dedicated entirely to repurposed products. There’s even an attached training college for studying recycling. It’s all pretty straightforward and very green: Items are donated and [...]

Bugs Be Gone! Clean Made Essential Oil Bug Spray

2018-07-24T14:21:13+00:00 July 8th, 2018|Clean Living, DIY, Recipes|

We’ve been ready for summer since the end of last summer, but the one drawback is bugs. Mosquitos, no-see-ums, ticks, ants, fleas -- depending where you are in the country, you’ll have different creepy-crawlies to contend with, but no matter where live, one thing is universal: Those store-bought, toxic bug repellents are scary, can be actively [...]

Say what you will about brown bag lunches and weeknight dinners, we contend the hardest meal to pull together is breakfast. This is especially true when you're trying to head out the door while wanting something substantial to start the day that also has to be nutritionally balanced for energy and focus without fillers or sugars [...]

If You Aren’t Miserable, You’re Probably Not In Ketosis

...Or at least that's the conclusion Sara Chodosh has come to, in her article, Sorry, Keto fans, you're probably not in ketosis. It's just too hard, she argues in her piece for Popular Science. Unless it's brutal, you're probably not doing it right. The reason for this is the diet's 80 - 90 percent necessary fat [...]

Find Food Love With Jodi Moreno

We're lucky to live during a time when we have so many food options. We can go into most grocery stores -- anywhere in the country! -- and cobble together enough ingredients to make an allergen-friendly feast. Speaking personally, we couldn't even say that five years ago, outside of straight-up meat and veg. On the internet, [...]

Urban Composting: Yes You Can

2018-06-28T11:10:02+00:00 July 2nd, 2018|Clean Living, Sustainability + Earth Care|

If it’s a vegetable, it’ll biodegrade in the trash, right? Wrong. Due to the anaerobic environment of the modern city dump, it takes an average of 20 years for a single head of lettuce to decompose. That means the salad you throw away now won’t return to the earth until 2038. Babies who are born today [...]

Koia Plant Powered Nutrition

2018-06-28T14:32:36+00:00 July 2nd, 2018|Clean Eats, Clean Living, Clean Made LA, Clean Made Picks, Nutrition|

We love protein drinks. We mix collagen protein powder into our coffee to start the day with some skin food and a boost of extra nutrition in the morning. It's our post-workout BFF (best fuel forever). Sometimes we turn to protein drinks instead of reaching for a naughty sweet snack in the late afternoon. Protein drinks [...]
