Wholesome Natural Cleaners : Natural Cleaning Products Knowing that so many household cleaners are needlessly overloaded with harmful toxins, Kimberly Jones is a mother and entrepreneur that took it upon herself to create a new line of natural cleaning products. The VeraClean line includes four basic solutions, including a multi-surface cleaner, a bathroom cleaner, a glass cleaner and an antibacterial concentrate. Rather than being made with bleach, ammonia, artificial fragrances and synthetic preserving agents, the products have a much simpler ingredient list of essential oils, natural cleaning surfactants and citrus citrates. By listing all ingredients used, VeraClean ensures transparency, safety and redefines what it means to get your home clean. This natural cleaning product line is now raising funds on Kickstarter, appealing to eco-conscious individuals who value health and honesty.

Neutralizing Natural Deodorants : "natural deodorant" Cassava starch, charcoal and magnesium are some of the powerful odor-neutralizing ingredients in PiperWai's natural deodorant. Alongside these are coconut oil, shea buter, cocoa butter and vitamin E oil, helping to soothe skin as well as deodorize. Rather than taking the form of a roll-on stick, this deodorant comes in cream form, to be applied with the hands. Although learning to apply this paste might take some getting used to for those making the switch to an all-natural deodorant, PiperWai promises benefits for your skin as well. The super absorbent deodorant is said to form an invisible wall between skin and clothing, which helps to avoid wet stains and clogged pores.
Four African Teenage Girls Create a Pee-Powered Generator In the past week or so since Hurricane Sandy devastated a large portion of the East Coast, we've seen people get creative about ways to harness power. From sharing outlets on the street , to using bikes as generators , people have come up with innovative ways to charge their cell phones and other items necessary for everyday life.
