It’s easy to feel helpless when it comes to helping the environment. People tend to get caught up in the idea that our actions don’t matter in the grand scheme of things, so why bother? But the truth is, if we all just made a few small changes, we could make a huge difference. That’s not idealism, that’s a fact. Plus, there are so many ways to be more eco-friendly that require little to no effort. Sure, you might need to rethink some of your habits, but you don’t have to rearrange your whole life or quit your job and live on a commune to make a real impact. You don’t have to be perfect.

We adore Shailene Woodley and are fascinated with her, um, unconventional ideas about not owning a cell phone and foraging for berries to eat. Girlfriend is very into growing her own organic foods and forgoing products with chemicals. “It’s an entire lifestyle,” Woodley has said. “It’s appealing to my soul.”
But we forgot about another Hollywood actress who has been in this hippie woo-woo game a lot longer: Alicia Silverstone! How could we have forgotten she thinks babies should go diaper-free?

Apparently you can save the whales AND have perky double-D’s. Or so says Belgian biodegradable cosmetics company Biocorner. Their recently published “No need to be ugly to save the planet” ad gloriously frees us from thinking that a unibrow and hairy pits are synonymous with love for the environment. The ad features a “before” and “after” shot — “before” is a pockmarked woman wearing one of the those tragic knit caps, while “after” is a glossy-haired femme-bot in a cocktail dress. The idea seems to be that women who care about the environment are BUSTED, so let’s prove that they don’t have to be that way by…photoshopping them to the point where they look barely human. Yeah, that makes sense. [AdRants, The F Word] Keep reading »
