The inspiration for this blog came after reading Vanessa Farquharson's book, Sleeping Naked is Green, and wondering if her new eco-lifestyle was really applicable to a family of 5 that was already fairly environmentally friendly. At the urging of a friend, I took on the challenge of trying to improve my family's "green-ness", using the book as a template. This blog will record our attempts to improve our environmental foot-print one small change at a time.

Eco-friendly hand moisturizer (Day 92)
I purchased some new hand cream last week. My old brand was on the naughty list, according to the Skin Deep Database. So, trusting my friends at EWG, I bought a better brand. This one scores either a 4 or 5 (I'm not exactly sure which version of my brand that I bought), which is much better than the 8 I used to use! I like the new product - it's not greasy, absorbs rather quickly, and doesn't irritate the cuts on my skin. I'm not completely satisfied, as this company has some issues with the old formulation of this particular product. I can't be guaranteed that I'm not using the old version, so after this container is finished, I'm going to try to finder a better-scoring brand.
