Ranging from shoes they can wear on long shifts to wedding gowns for upcoming nuptials.
Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Brown Thursday--all the sales days associated with Thanksgiving are starting to blend together into one big giant shopping-fest. It feels like the anxiety of getting the best deals has replaced the anxiety of roasting the perfect bird (and having to chat with your drunk uncle). Don't worry--we're here to help.
Earth Day is all about guilt, so here are some quick statistics for you: the average American uses 70 gallons of water in a 10-minute shower, but 34% of people polled think that a 10-minute shower only wastes 10 gallons of water. A bit of a disconnect there. (And in case you were wondering, 70 gallons is 1,120 eight ounce bottles of water.) The Body Shop, one of the original eco-conscious brands, has issued the “Earth Lovers Three-Minute Shower Challenge” just in time for Earth Day. Yes, they want you to commit to taking three-minute showers. To help time yourself, the company suggests playing a three-minute song and trying to finish by the end. Or, you could always count to 180 slowly. Could you do this?
