PSA: Save your pineapple skins! They have good stuff in them. Lots of fruits hold a lot of their nutrients in their skins but who wants to chew on that?! But we've found the remedy and here are our top 3 reasons to save your pineapple skins and reduce waste! ❤
1. Organic Pineapple Skin Tea- boil skins in 1 liter of water for 15mins or until water turns yellow. Add raw local honey or drink plain. This tea is great for circulation, anti-inflammatory, cleansing, immune booster, & weight loss.
2. Pineapple Pot-Pourri- place skins in a food dehydrator or an oven at 200 degrees and leave until skins crisp. Add your favorite spices and dried flowers for a sweet aroma.
3. Pineapple Foot Scrub- place skins in blender and blend until you get a coarse paste. Apply paste to your feet and leave for 20min.
For every item of clothing donated, 27 lbs of carbon emissions are reduced, based on the fact that there isn't another garment being produced while one is headed to a landfill. Donate to a thrift store or charity that accepts donations, or trade with your girlfriend (you know that dress was made for her anyways 😘). #keepearthsexy
Living sustainable is not only in the products we purchase, but in the foods we eat as well. Most of the foods we eat travel up to 1500 miles before they land on our plates! Talk about a journey! Thats why we are all about eating local & supporting our local farmers market. ❤
