5 Eco-friendly Ways to Treat Yourself

Thanks to Neutrogena® Naturals for sponsoring today's discussion on ways to provide eco-friendly treats for yourself and the earth.  

To be present for your family, you have to be good to yourself. If mama isn't happy then nobody is happy. We do so much for others and oftentimes it's difficult to find a space, a time, or even a moment for ourselves. Small changes help and the below listed can create a brighter day for you, your family, your community, and the earth.

Eco-friendly Ways to Treat Yourself


1. Treat someone else. Change the world for the better by volunteering your time or donating money to a charity organization that speaks to you. Plant a tree. Organize a neighborhood clean up. Give money to support these efforts. It feels good to give. Giving of time or money allows you to receive a treat for yourself.

Neutrogena® Naturals are a treat for the face using the best ingredients such as Peruvian tara seed, willow bark, Inca inchi oil and yerba mate tea leaf. It's also a treat for the earth with packaging made of 100% recycled paper and 60% post-consumer recycled content. The recycled paperboard cartons uses 75% less water in processing than virgin paperboard does.

3. Treat your body. Instead of reaching for a sugary afternoon pick me up. Go with water and fresh cuts of fruit tossed in. Get a little exercise and take a leisurely stroll. Crank up the music and dance like no one is watching. Seriously get into it. Move every part of your body for a complete and total de-stressing feel good. Bonus points if you get sweaty.

4. Treat your closet. Shop the kind way. Visit a thrift store and treat yourself to something special to add to your closet. Thrifting is economical. It helps the earth and if retail therapy is your stress reliever, you can feel good about a stylishly affordable thrift session.

5. Treat your old clothes. Don't toss your old garments just yet. Think about refashioning into something new. Give some pieces from your wardrobe a new look. Maybe sew on some newly trendy patches or embroidery. Change the pant leg of those great fitting jeans. Take up the hem on a favorite skirt.
