Ecosalon Recipes: Curry in a Hurry

DIY Civil Engineering: Home Grown Cities

A truly modern city is one that’s overgrown. I love cities. In Rome last month, I was fascinated by how Italians utilized every corner of their balconies and gardens (more so in the Republic of Georgia) – admittedly as much for rusting motorbike/moped parts as for greenery. That’s men for […]

Eco Fashion Favorites of 2008

It’s true what they say: time flies while you’re having fun. 2008 at EcoSalon was chock full of fun, from the top of our eco fashionista heads down to the bottom of our little greenie toes. This was a spectacular year for the art and business of green garb. Environmentally […]

Getting Started with Safe, Organic Cosmetics

Ecosalon Recipes: Miso-Sesame Dressing

D.S. & Durga Perfume Giveaway for Scentuous Souls

If I could bathe myself in a scent it would be D.S. & Durga’s Grapefruit. The simplicity of citrus may not sound exotic but the marriage of floral fruit with Jamaican Pirate Seeds from the high seas yields an intoxicating blend. Created by an architect and a musician, the natural […]

Name That Eco Baby!

A for Apple, B is for Beluga, C is for Chullo. Pretty baby! Parents on planet Hollywood and elsewhere are headed in that fruity, foamy and woolly direction in declaring devotion to Mama Earth via naming their young. In the roaring Nineties, when real estate and dot comers were soaring, […]

Exit Stirrups. Enter Lounge Chic.

Remember when leggings first came into vogue? I might be dating myself, but I even remember when they were sold with stirrups. What  a gift that was for gals who hated being confined in structured, fitted pants. Oy. Well, the stirrups are gone and stretchy workout wear is totally acceptable […]

Rub-a-Dub: Paint That Clawfoot Tub

Nothing goes together like a recession and a paint brush. If you can’t afford to remodel (and who can?) and are stuck with a peeling, fiberglass clawfoot tub, tap into some ingenuity and resource non-toxic paints and supplies, pure shower curtains, an organic floor mat and go to town. If […]

Organic, Please: Mountain Rose Herbs Tea

On the subject of tea, I have become obsessed with loose leaf tea. Why mess around with tea bags? Loose leaf tea is better quality, for one. The key is setting yourself up with the right steeping options. But perhaps, more importantly, make sure the tea is organic. Think about […]

Does Tom's of Maine Make You Stink?

I entertained a short-lived green poseur phase back in the beginning of college when my hippie-esque roommate started using only natural products. I quickly switched to Tom’s of Maine everything.
