Day 247: Used Tea Bags To Settle My Eyes

Day 247: Used Tea Bags To Settle My Eyes

After making the kombucha, I took the cooled down tea bags and put them on my eyes to soothe them.

This helps to reduce swelling around the eyes and is better than any of the harsh chemical laden products that are out there.

When done, I put the tea bags into my compost.

Besides not using potentially harmful chemicals, items that were otherwise going to be tossed were reused.

Next time you are using a cosmetic product, whether it’s soap, deodrant or a lotion, check out the ingredients as to what’s in it. A lot of the ingredients are reportedly bad for your health and the environment.

Check out the Cosmetics Database for more information on cosmetic safety.

What was your simple green act for the day?
