Vegan Tuesdays like a PRO

It’s Tuesday folks and you know what that means!   Today I have a few firsts to share with everyone.     A few days ago I found out that I have been added to the MLB PRO Blogroll, which is downright exciting.    I started my blog back in March as a way to express myself and commit to writing.   I have really enjoyed sharing my thoughts with all my readers and I am happy to hear that people are enjoying it!  I wanted to thank Mark Newman at MLB.com for being so kind and really welcoming me with open arms.   For more MLBlogs, you can check out the June leaders on MLB.com Blogs Central.
Next I want to share with you my discovery of an amazing green brand whose mission is “To Enhance the Lives of Those We Touch by Helping People Reach Their Goals”.   A few weeks ago I was on the hunt for a job that would afford me the luxury to work from home and what I found was nothing short of a blessing.   Melaleuca is known as a $1+ billion wellness company, which is great, but what stood out for me is the fact that they have been green since their inception, before being green was even popular.  We are talking allllll the way back to 1985, two years before I even saw the light of day.
Being a vegan and someone who believes that it is our duty to take care of the amazing world we live in, instead of taking it for granted, I felt like discovering Melaleuca was divine intervention.    I now rest easy knowing that the products I buy every month are not only safe for me and my husband, but they are also safe for my animals and the Earth.   I have always had legitimate concerns about buying products that are full of toxins and dangerous chemicals and that also test on animals – you would be surprised at how many companies still practice this – but I can honestly say that my worries are at bay.
If you would like more information about Melaleuca, feel free to email me at c.campins@yahoo.com.
Cheers to the Earth and to the animals!

Vegan Tuesdays – Ethical Ocean

I was fortunate enough to come across an invitation-only website dedicated to ethical brands. I can’t even tell you how long I have been on a mission to find brands that do good for the environment and do not test on animals. The website is called Ethical Ocean.
If you are conscious of our environment and animal testing, I invite you to join!

Vegan Tuesdays

I have to admit that coming up with a new vegan recipe that I can try every week was a bit of a stretch for me.  I love a good vegan dish, but I also like to eat my favorites over and over like they are going out of style.  That being said, I have decided to broaden my Vegan Tuesdays to include things that would make animal advocates and vegans proud.    Today I have decided to share my favorite shampoo line with you which is fortunately cruelty free.
I started using Nioxin about 2 years ago when I was having issues with my scalp.   My hair dresser said that the irritation I was having was most likely due to stress but that Nioxin would do the trick.   I instantly fell in love and now it is all I use.   I primarily use their Scalp Recovery line and alternate it with their System 1 Kit for Normal to Thin hair that is not chemically treated.    For more information on their products and a salon that sells it nearest you, visit their website at www.Nioxin.com.
