Why, oh why, you might ask? The short answer, I’m a devoted environmentalist. The long answer…
Truly, the easiest eco-friendly way to brush your teeth is simply turning off the water when not in use. But if you want to get adventurous with your toothbrushing routine, ECO offers advice on not only how to whiten those pearly things but also keep icky chemicals out of ‘em! And you’ll also save money too!
The key secret to an eco-friendly toothbrushing routine is to make your own toothpaste! All you need is the following:
- 1/2 cup of baking soda (for cleansing)
- 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide (for whitening)
- 1 drop of peppermint oil or other essential oil (for flavor)
Full set of instructions after the jump!
Who doesn’t love pesto? If you don’t, you’re wrong. Come to the Pesto Dinner tonight at 6:00 p.m. at the Snowden Multicultural Center – because there is nothing that brings cultures together quite like pesto. The Wiggin St. Garden Club and ECO are joining forces to bring you homemade pasta with pesto, and there is really no reason not to go. You’ll even have time to run to Peirce afterwards if there happens to be cookie pie. So de-stress and chat with some probably-lovely people over a delicious homemade dinner.
Side Note/Fun Fact: The Snowden Multicultural Center is named after the first African-American couple to be married in Knox County. Their seven children performed in a family band.
What: Pesto all over the place and all up in your face.
Where: Snowden Multicultural Center (walking north, take the little path to the left of Middle Path past Watson, the CGE and the Eaton Center, and you’ll see it on the left).
When: 6:00 p.m.
