Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera

Because my roommate talked me into fasting plastic this year I’ll present you with a post about the reduction of plastic waste.

 

So some of you might ask yourselves: what the hell does this have to do with Aloe Vera???

 

I’ll tell you…

 

A few days ago I found the link to a PDF-document from the german “Umweltbundesamt” [sorry, it’s in german] where all the cosmetics which contain micro plastics are listed.

That raises the question: what else is in our cosmetics? Do we need that? Ain’t there a way we could get cosmetics that are more natural? Without thousands of ingredients that we mortals have no clue about?

And also there is the plastic packaging / waste…

 

So why don’t we get ourselves our hands dirty and try some Aloe Vera recipes? 🙂

Aloe Vera seems to be endlessly healthy. It helps for example with these kind of things:

 

  • sunburn
  • scars and scratches
  • spots
  • inflammation
  • eye- and ear-drops
  • hairloss
  • skin care

 

You can find some recipes on aloe-vera-finca.de!

So: plant your own Aloe Vera! Buy less cosmetics! Reduce plastic waste!

 

ReThink – Recycle!
