MEET OUR NEWEST SPONSOR: EUROPEAN WAX CENTER

One of the Green Divas standard jokes is that while we are serious about living sustainably, we still shave our legs.  Well, we’ve discovered another brilliant option.  We were invited to the European Wax Center in Denville, NJ where we were given a tour, a demonstration and education about their natural waxing method. THEY DON’T JUST REMOVE HAIR, THEY REVEAL HEALTHY SKIN. IT’S ALL ABOUT SKIN CARE.  And oh how our skin cared.  The patented all natural, 100% beeswax heats at a lower temperature then the traditional honey wax (ouch, ouch, ooch, ooch) and it’s a stip-less system.  So it doesn’t hurt as much.

Try it for free. YUP! for free. When you go for your free service, tell them you heard about them from the Green Divas Radio Show and you’ll have a chance to win a scrumptious gift basket of all natural European Wax Center goodies.

Every week we will discuss an entry from this hilarious and totally practical book, Sleeping Naked is Green by Vanessa Farquharson.

Listen to this week’s 5-min segment - SNiG #11 – Don’t Shave Your Legs

Two billion disposable razors end up in US landfills every year – YIKES!

Aside from the razor, think of the water, soap, packaging, etc.

What’s a green diva to do?

Waxing

Try European Wax Center

  • Spa experience
  • Different, stripless wax. Less ouch.
  • Natural ingredients minimize ingrown hairs and poor reaction

Sugaring?

Similar to waxing, but supposed to hurt less.

GD LISA’S TAKE TWO: Green Holiday Gift Ideas

Give where its needed most
Most of us have all the “stuff” we need and then some. Why not give a gift to someone who really needs it and give in the name of a loved one.  One of the best lists that I found that can help you make a number of choices that are just right for all your loved ones was on Care2.com. Where you can choose from their gift guide from among several really cool options like:

$15 to plant a tree
$20 to provide a soccer ball

$70 to educate a girl
$25 to adopt a wolf
$30 to send an orphan to school
and more… 

Eco board game
Endango 

Kids go green to save the animals.  For ages 6+, it teaches about the far reaching impacts of living green on our planet while enlisting the players to be keepers of specific aspects of the planet like eco systems, forests, oceans and polar ice. It’s great fun.

Trailer Food Diaries Cookbook: Serving up the American Dream one plate at a time!
You don’t have to live in Austin to appreciate this scrumptious cookbook by Tiffany Harelik the go-to-gal for mobile food vending. It is full of great stories, delectable photos and delicious recipes. A perfect gift for the foodie on your list.

DIY – Making mittens from old sweaters
Find a favorite old sweater of your’s or someone you love and turn it into cozy mittens that can be just cozy and/or a loving memory.  Use the sleeves for small mittens and the bottom of a sweater makes good finished cuffs.

If you have to buy, then buy local or at least buy American
If you can’t buy local, I found a great list from CBS News of “made in America” companies.

GD CORRESPONDENCE: Kari Whitman – Eco Interior Designer to the stars
Kari talked about some of her clients like Jessica Alba and Leo DiCaprio who truly care about the planet.

Cafeteria Man

“All across America, school food is undergoing a major transformation to help reverse the childhood obesity epidemic — but not without opposition and challenges. CAFETERIA MAN provides an inspiring, behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to bring fresher, healthier food to the millions of kids in our nation’s schools. The film follows nationally-recognized chef Tony Geraci as he works to revamp school food programs that feed thousands of students in two big city districts — Baltimore and Memphis. Responding to the pleas of Baltimore students who were fed-up with terrible school lunches, Geraci was hired to replace pre-plated foods with tastier, more nutritious meals. But he didn’t stop there. To help students develop a better appreciation for healthier foods, he also established a model 33 acre teaching farm, brought in more locally sourced produce, and initiated student-designed meals. CAFETERIA MAN shows that it is possible to feed our nation’s students healthier, more nutritious meals, and provides inspiration and ideas to win the fight for better school food.

With appearances by First Lady Michelle Obama, noted food author Michael Pollan, White House Chef Sam Kass. "

Beauty and the Breast

“A first time documentary filmmaker offers a compelling insight into a devastating reality of breast cancer, as seen through the eyes of several female patients helping demystify the disease while painting poignant and often humorous intimate portraits of survival. The film depicts the process of learning and accepting the terrifying verdict, and details the complexities of every stage of this disease. All interviewed patients have different experiences living with mutilated bodies while still maintaining strength. This film is not only invaluable as a testament to human resilience but it also proves that it’s possible to blossom in the face of adversity. But as the fight continues, the wisdom and beauty within us can help us conquer the beast until we find the cure.”
