In honor of Earth Day (which is today, everyone who has forgotten, or had no idea in the first place), SheFinds has presented you with different ways to go green for the past week. But these choices are a little more complicated than just sorting your plastics from your perishables. We've asked if you'd give up the comforts of luxe leather handbags for animal happy alternatives, or if you would risk offending your office mates by switching from your trusty anti-perspirant to a new age crystal deodorant. Below is a recap of the week's topics.
Which one would you draw the line at when it comes to saving Mama Earth?
Natalie Portman won't go near leather. She went so far as to create her own line of vegan footwear. Would you support the cause and only sport vegan bags and shoes?
You may consider yourself a diva in every other aspect of your life, but would you use a Diva Cup or any other eco-friendly feminine products?
Would you turn in your designer jeans (you know, the ones that go with everything and magically make your butt look smaller) for a pair of organic Levi's?
Just how much willpower would it take to put down that fierce red shade of eco-unfriendly lipstick and carry around some Burt's Bees Balm instead? Fave cosmetics are hard to part with – even if they're anything but green.
Personal hygiene is very, well, personal. So you may not want to mess with your already established choices when it comes to toothpaste or deodorant. But who knows, maybe that crystal deodorant really does work just as well as an anti-perspirant..
What do you think? Which change wouldn't you be willing to compromise on for the sake of going green? Take our poll below and air your thoughts in our comments section.
