"Do everything House" and how to get started!

"Make it all home"! For a while I've been working on private groups through social networks, so I was able to realize a trend that was growing: Fighting against hyper-consumption and the return to nature. 

By this I have seen the emergence of many self-help groups where members exchange recipes to design household products, hygiene, cooking, natural care, etc. with the same goals: respect for the environment, a return to basics, reduce expenses, and the quest for healthy products with impeccable transparency. An anti-consumerist movement that invites action and reflection.

Indeed, the environment is at the heart of the debates between the scandals of the gliphosate, the overexploitation of natural resources, pollution and finally the global awareness of the consequences of a destructive global over-consumption of nature and bio-diversity as a whole. It's time to re-condition our way of living and consuming differently if we don't want to leave a giant waste dump as a gift to our children.

Soils are overexploited, battery animals crammed die in pitiful conditions and we pay the price of food that is increasingly nutrient-poor. Endocrine disruptors present in the majority of our environment are a subject that is of increasing interest to the population: All these household products, beauty and I keep creating new allergies and fears of health concerns …

Motion-surfing apps have been created to help you avoid allergenic products, and guide you during your shopping. All you need to do is scan the barcodes of your products and the app will inform you of all the details:

  • Clean Beauty
  • Flash Labels: provides information on eco-labels from a photo taken on a product.
  • Seasonal fruits and vegetables: information on which fruits and vegetables to choose from depending on the season.
  • Beat the Micro Bead: detects the presence of micro plastic beads in your cosmetics.

I am not necessarily a pro-extremist of this movement, however the more I inquire the more I end up telling myself that it is time to take action!

On a day-to-day basis I start by making easy changes in the way I consume and I would like to raise awareness among my readers with a compilation of recipes and small changes, which exercised on a daily basis could be a significant change for environment, your well-being and your health.

So I'll start by giving you the first easy recipes and tricks to put in place in your daily life:
