The presentation by Food for Skin during our monthly meeting taught us many things. One of the most important things being that our conventional skincare products contain a shocking amount of micro-plastics. Each lick of cream contains 90.000 units of microplastics. Microplastics that in turn get washed off and end up in our oceans and drinking water. Microplastics that we rub on the largest organ we have, our skin. Microplastics that are unnecessary and devastating for us and our environment.

What is your garden trying to tell you?
If more people start to realize that plants from their own garden can actually support their health, they will most likely be inclined to take better care of their garden. Make their garden ‘greener’, stop the use of chemicals to get rid of their ‘weeds’.
This will not only have an effect on our general health, it will also have an effect on the health of our planet. We have to start to understand that they are inseparable. A healthy planet means healthy people and vice versa. Since for the past 15 months health has been more of an issue than ever before this seems like the perfect time to start. So let’s stop waisting more time, pick those dandelions*, put them in your salad, smoothie or whatever you like. Start healing through that overwhelming power of nature!
