This article doesn't promise anything improbable, it won't answer all your environmental questions, but it will show you 5+alternatives to plastic wrap in food storage. I once read that a Harvard professor, in order to find an alternative plastic packaging in food, decided to find a way to make all packaging edible.

On the other hand, if this discovery were successful, you wouldn't be reading this article right now! Can we...
I have wanted to write this article for a long time and I think now is the perfect time to share with you my eco-friendly and less toxic body care routine.
The backstory :
In my overall effort for a more sustainable and non-toxic lifestyle, I notice that the first changes I made were in the way I take care of my body.

As time goes on, I face more and more challenges in trying to be faithful to my love and care for the environment. From the moment I decided I was going to do it right, so it happened. And there were no exceptions. But sometimes, things get a little bit harder and that's where I need to be even more focused and organized. I believe that there's always a way to stay true to our principles, in order to protect the environment and our health. A person who cares about the environment, is/ needs to be organized.

In this article I share with you one of my favorite pastimes! I will show you how easy it is to dry flowers at home. I love to pick flowers and dry them in my special press or in a thick book. I may be from another era, but I consider this #slowliving relaxing activity is truly magical. Isn't it somewhat poetic that we can extend the life of flowers by drying them? Once you put them in the press or the book, you need to completely forget about them for a few days and then come back to see how...

This question is equivalent to "Were Ross and Rachel on a break?” and "Team Jacob vs Team Edward"… but make it Christmas! That’s why the A Shiny Day team, armed with the threefold: trench coat-magnifying glass-hat, turned into Sherlock Holmes, researched and shared their findings through this article.
