Some of the ingredients in beauty products aren’t that pretty. U.S. researchers report that one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, and hormone disruptors. Many products include plasticizers (chemicals that keep concrete soft), degreasers (used to get grime off auto parts), and surfactants (they reduce surface tension in water, like in paint and inks). Imagine what that does to your skin, and to the environment. WearEarth lip balms, sunscreens, and insect repellent do not use harmful ingredients and instead use specific plant and herbs to moisturize, protect, and improve skin quality.
You can avoid harmful chemicals when you use the information below, and audit your bathroom cupboard using this list of harmful ingredients:
Used mainly in moisturizers and makeup as preservatives. Suspected endocrine disruptors and may cause cancer (BHA). Harmful to fish and other wildlife. Read more »

I’ve discovered that going green by using reusable shopping bags, food bins, and baskets is simple and fun. As consumers we need to be conscious about what we spend our money and what we support. By using reusable bags, you are supporting a trend throughout the world to eliminate the use of single use plastic bags that are stuck in our environment and do harm to the planet. I will give you 50 reasons why to use reusable shopping bags and ask you to think about bringing a reusable to your next grocery trip.

Comfrey Leaf- An amazing herb that has amazing healing properties is used in our coconut lime lip balm and lemongrass sunscreen.
One of the best of all tissue healing herbs is Comfrey. We have soaked injured areas in Comfrey tea, taken Comfrey internally and applied it in poultices with excellent results. It helps all kinds of tissues, muscles, bones, skin and membranes to heal more rapidly. Comfrey has a strong history of being used as an external application by itself or in poultices for the mending of wounds and broken bones. Comfrey has been called the “bone knitter.

I’m writing to thank you and WEAREARTH.com for your commitment to protecting the environment as a 1% For the Planet member and to inform you of two groundbreaking global environmental initiatives that may be of interest toyou. Both projects were announced at the opening plenary session of the Clinton Global Initiative and are run by the Ocean Recovery Alliance, a non-profit organization focused on it’s the mission of reducing plastic waste in ourocean. We are a 1% For the Planet non-profit partner, and you can learn more about us at our website: www.oceanrecov.org.
The two projects we would like to make you aware are the following:
1) Global Alert – Floating Trash: a web-based platform thatuses citizen science and community reporting to create a global monitoring platform for hot spots of plastic debris within river systems and coastlines, enabling collective action to clean our waters and prevent waste from reaching the ocean.
2) The Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP): an initiative to encourage the world’smajor corporate and institutional users of plastic to measure and report theirannual plastic footprint, supported by the socially responsible investment community.
Both of these high-impact projects are describedin detail below.
To date, there are no global litter monitoring programs for the ocean. UNEP estimates that 70-80% of the world’s marine debris—and its negativeecosystem, economic, and communal impact—is generated from land-based sources. One of the main delivery mechanisms for marine debris to the ocean is from rivers, which act like arteries that carry plastic waste to our heart: the ocean.
With our partners, including Ecolayers, Millennium Art, and the Baum Foundation, we are building a communication and action tool to reduce, and ultimately help stop, the flow of plastic waste. The specific focus of Global Alert is to provide an open web-based platform for the world’s river and coastal communities to monitor and report on trash hot spots in their waters, creating a global “Neighbourhood Watch” Program. The platform will be based on community knowledge and input that includes the ability to upload photos and video examples, water level information, and other data that allow alerts to be generated when “hot spots” are present. The objective of Global Alert is to inspire the prevention, capture, and recycling of waste before it makes its way to the ocean, while giving the global community an easy way to become engaged in a meaningful way that can help make a difference in their communities.
We have received initial commitments from a numberof organizations for support and outreach, including The Clinton Global Initiative, the Blackstone Ranch Institute, a variety of municipalities, river groups and NGOs worldwide who are committed to using the web-based program.
The Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP)
The PDP, similar in concept to the Carbon Disclosure Project, is an investor-supported global initiative to encourage both companies and institutional users of plastic to measure and report their annual plastic footprint. The objectiveis to create annual management baseline metrics so that improvements can be made in the full product lifecycle, with potential to save costs, improve brand reputation, and decrease waste flow. By including plastic on the list of yearly voluntary reporting initiatives, along with carbon, water, and forest related products, investors and companies alike will be able to make better decisions that can benefit the long-term well being of various stakeholder groups.
This project is unique because it is global in nature, yet does not involve legislative change, bans or taxes on products. Its goal is to have producers and users really think of plastic in a different, more efficient way, so that products and material do not make their way into the ecosystem in the future. You can read more about the PDP here: www.plasticdisclosure.org

If you are looking for a great way to get organized around your home, help the planet, and add some style and decor at the same time, then Wearearth reusable totes are a great choice. There is a large variety of color and size options to choose from in the WearEarth collection, and all of the styles are durable, reusable, and eco friendly. Totes can be used all around the home; in kitchens, bedrooms, garages, and more. The tote bags can be used to organize household items or store items neatly in cabinets or closets. These bags have a low environmental impact, and are stylish at the same time.
Kitchen supplies can be placed in totes under sinks, canned vegetables can be separated in pantries, and paper products can be kept dry in storage areas when using these bags. Do you have a drawer of random supplies that are completely disorganized? Well reusable totes are a great way to organize your drawers and place supplies in the functional pockets for easy access.
Children’s rooms and toys can be organized with these bags, or you can use them to travel with the most important children’s accessories as well. They are great for overnight trips or for carrying toys when you’re on the road. These bags are also great to take shopping with you when you are headed to the store, instead of using the single use plastic bags at the checkout. Just one reusable tote could keep 1,000 plastic bags from polluting the planet each year. Not only are these the perfect way to organize your life, at home and on the go, but also make a great green gift.
The totes from WearEarth are Fair Trade certified, and are recyclable after use. You can feel guilt free carrying around your colorful bag, or giving it away as a gift. These totes are easy to carry, clean, and store all your belongings, with little maintenance. Choose this eco friendly alternative storage option versus filing cabinets or toy chests around your home. You can help the planet and brighten your home all at the same time.
When the whole world is buzzing with the words like going green, reusable and recycable products sometimes get left behind. There are many opportunities for consumers to help save the earth from the fast depleting of its precious resources by living green whenever possible. One idea we have at Wearearth is to use our reusable tote bags in place of disposable, single use bags. This may also encourage others that notice your effort to do the same and create a positive snowball effect.
There are a number of occasions where you can use a reusable tote bag in place of disposables. Take the Halloween candy bag, made from disposable materials, and will most likely reach the trash can in a few days. Instead use our eco friendly Steamboat to carry your Halloween candy this year and reuse it again and again. Our totes are durable and washable and can be easily stored year after year.
Every year during the Christmas season, a large amount of disposable materials are used to create Christmas stockings for gift giving traditions. Stockings can be made out of reusable materials and also reduce the amount of waste from wrapping paper and ribbons. Since wrapping is part of the fun, try using old magazines or newspapers with fun images to wrap gifts. Reusable totes can be used instead of stockings and reused each year to keep Christmas traditions. You can also bring your reusable tote along shopping this Christmas season. Our Jackson tote has space for lots of gifts and can help avoid bringing up single use plastic bags. Even small steps can help reduce, reuse and recycle everyday items.
This holiday season look for Fair Trade certified products and give the gift of supporting companies and products that pay fair wages and implement safe working environments. Supporting Fair Trade companies is not only the right thing to do, but also provides unique gifts for that special someone. Be it a birthday, holiday gathering, or party with friends, think creatively and give gifts that are reusable or made from recyclable materials. You have the power to make a difference; all you need is a little imagination.
