INFOGRAPHIC: Demystifying “Natural” and “Organic” Labels on Personal Care Products

Comments Off on INFOGRAPHIC: Demystifying “Natural” and “Organic” Labels on Personal Care Products

When you go grocery shopping, chances are that you notice that most (if not all) produce items have labels on them to signify whether they’re organic or not. Well, just like food, personal care products have a variety of different labels that get slapped onto them as well. These labels are meant to inform customers about the fabulousness within said products, but certain terms are often used to obfuscate, rather than clarify. A blanket term such as “ botanical ” may just mean that a tiny percentage of the ingredients are plant-based, while “natural” can imply that one of the additives came from nature once upon a time… regardless of how much it was altered before being used in that face scrub you’re holding. This label cheat sheet should help you to navigate your way through the local health food store’s beauty product aisle so you can find just what it is you’re looking for, and feel good about using it.

Comments Off on Michael Jantzen Designs Solar-Powered Global Climate Change Pavilion

Prolific designer Michael Jantzen completed a conceptual proposal that uses engaging design to spur greater global climate change debate and education. Titled the Global Climate Change Pavilion, this large public structure houses research and interactive exhibits that explore the relationship between the earth and its rapidly warming climate. Wave-shaped canopies topped by solar panels surround the globular pavilion and provide shade and shelter. The solar-powered exhibition dome is made of self-cleaning photocatalytic concrete and is also designed with rainwater collection and reuse systems. + Michael Jantzen The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on DIY: Care for Fabulous Feet—Hooves Need Love Too!

Feet don’t get the respect they deserve, do they? We plod around on them and take them for granted, but few of us take the time to really care for these amazing appendages. The winter months can be especially hard on our hooves, as they can end up dry and sore , or peeling and pungent from being trapped in clammy boots all day. If you’re looking forward to scrunching your toes in the sand and walking barefoot in the grass this summer, it’s good to take a bit of time to pamper your paws in preparation.
