The Friday 5: Oh-So-Human Edition

The top stories of the week at EcoSalon.

In the week of the national explosion of extravagance know as the Superbowl, we ask – are we comfortable that the funding for one advert could give water to 140,000 people – for life?

Starre Vartan wanted us to think about the words “nude” and “skin-colored.”

We looked at 20 foods to give you energy and made you feel like a real person.

Jenine Sheroes turns people into art – more specifically, their hair into leaves.

Finally, we can’t help self-mentioning our popular, bargain-packed EcoSalon Boxes, of which there’s a few left! (Sorry for the plug – but we’re only human).
