Sugar, Wax or Shave?

Listen, laugh & learn with the Green Divas (and Green Dude Scott) anytime – Podcast here!

Fun to be back in the studio with a full crew. We had a lot of lively discussion about personal care today starting with our report from Green Diva Sandy Holtzman about a company in New York making luscious organic shea butter mousse body cream called AH! Romatic Soothers – and they are awesome! We got some samples and totally recommend trying some – like velvet on your skin!

Speaking of skin . . . The Sleeping Naked is Green segment was all about to shave (our legs for green divas) or not to shave – what’s a green diva to do? We found some awesome alternatives in waxing, sugaring (prior to researching this segment, I had never heard of sugaring! Gotta try that one)and even eco-friendlier ways to shave. We love the environment, but we’re not going furry-legged yet. Hear just the fun 5-min segment by clicking here.

Our feature interview was with Kari Whitman, the eco-interior designer to the stars in LA, who talks about her work with Jessica Alba, Emilio Estevez, Martin Sheen, Virginia Madsen, Leonardo DiCaprio and others. She is also a huge champion for animals and has started a animal rescue in LA called Ace of Hearts. When she’s not saving dogs, she’s busy designing very eco-friendly and beautiful custom dog beds made from recycled plastic bottles – they are affordable and ALL profits go to the Ace of Hearts rescue!

Green Diva Lisa’s Take Two segment offered some great ideas for holiday gift giving and how to keep it green, thoughtful and charitable.

We also announced the winner of last week’s Eco Friendly Printer KNOW YOUR GREEN Quiz – Ellen Ruth Levy won a Zipcar certificate! Please go to our facebook page and see this week’s quiz to win a $100 gift certificate for any printing from the Eco Friendly Printer!
