Nothing better than checking on Rides A Bike to feel inspired during UKs National Bike Week – 16th to 24th June 2012. Looking at some mesmerising photographies dedicated to movie stars and their self-propelled vehicles, AnOther magazine interviewed Steven Rea,  a film critic for The Philadelphia Inquirer and founder of the blog.

Here, some of my favourites!

Be a “Green” Diva

The DivaCup is a non-absorbent menstrual cup that simply collects menstrual flow. It is inserted and sits at the lower base of the vaginal canal. It is worn internally, yet because it is soft and smooth, it cannot be felt nor will it leak when inserted properly. DivaCup is the most clean and convenient method of feminine hygiene protection. No need to touch the flow. It is worn low in the vagina, not near the cervix, so it is easy to remove and without mess.

Women around the world are increasingly aware of how they can make a significant, positive environmental impact by switching from disposable tampons and pads to The DivaCup. This simple change is as significant as switching from plastic to canvas bags. DivaCup is reusable and made from silicone. This makes it an important, environmentally responsible feminine hygiene choice.

Women, on average, experience a lifetime menstruation span of 41 years (11-52). From use of disposable feminine hygiene, an estimated 12 billion sanitary pads and 7 billion tampons are dumped into the North American environment each year (1998). More than 170,000 tampon applicators were collected along U.S. coastal areas between 1998 and 1999. Our revolutionary, reusable product is a modern, viable alternative to disposable tampons and pads.

Panache-3

Here is a new line of eco-friendly shampoos, called Concept Vert: Privé. But, this post is also here to remind us what is not good to have in our daily shampoos ingredients:

Sulfates, gluten, phalalates, DEA, TEA, mineral oil, paraffin, PABA, paraben, or artificial coloring.

Concept Vert has its bottles feature patented air powered technology that equates to twice the washing and conditioning in reusable bottles. The products are designed to be recycled as well as being refilled and reused via the manufacturer through the salon of purchase. In addition, they use pure organic exacts. The color safe formula is enriched with Amazon Açaí and Babassu Oil to rejuvenat, nourish and cleanse the hair.

Accordind to testimonials, Concept Vert makes your hair “softer, shinier and much more manageable”.

DIY Deodorant

Life Hacker posted this week how to make your natural & homemade deodorant. So, I made a shameless copy from them. See the ingredients bellow:

  • Corn starch
  • Baking soda
  • Coconut oil
  • Essential oils (opt. – adds smellpretty!)
  • Vitamin E (opt. adds ooohskinsoft!)
  • An empty container to be filled with your new deodor

See how to make it here.

It’s important to remind: “This product will not keep you from sweating. Aluminum is the key ingredient in antiperspirant, and that’s the bad guy in our story here.”

Cooool!
