Happy Earth Day…Free Origins Cleanser and 'Clean Eating' Tips

by Amie on April 22, 2010


Happy Earth Day everyone!  I hope you are all ‘eating clean’ today and everyday, which is not only good for our bodies, but for the Earth, as well.

Today you can receive a Free Origins Cleanser in Exhange for Your Old Product at your Origins store.

Origins has created two cleansers to help you save face: A Perfect World™ contains white tea to whisk away grime, while the kelp extract in Checks and Balances™ helps tame combination skin.

Pack up your used product and head to your local Origins store today, April the 22nd when you can swap your empty bottle (any brand) for a brand new Origins full-size cleanser.

(One per customer while supplies last.)

And Now…For Some ‘Clean Eating’ Earth Day (and everyday) Lifestyle Tips…

As you all know, my food philosophy is ‘Clean Eating’ which resonates well with today’s ‘Earth Day’ celebration.  When I refer to ‘Clean Eating’ I am explaining a lifestyle way of eating instead of dieting and consuming processed foods.  I believe in eating foods in their natural state, a simple principle that our ancestors once followed and now I’m bringin’ it back as ‘Clean Eating’ is the way we should be…eating!


Consuming minimally processed foods such as whole grains, lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes and healthy fats are as simple as the ‘Clean Eating’ concept gets.  We all know that whole grains, fruits and veggies are healthy fare, however lean proteins such as beans, legumes, eggs, tofu and animal proteins fed and raised without hormones are great options to add to your meal, as well.  Moreover, healthy fats such as nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oil, flaxseed oil and cold-water fish such as salmon are fabulous ‘healthy fat’ options that can easily be incorporated into your meals and snacks.

Today and everyday, make it a point to read labels and ingredient lists on every package and when you walk into the food store, grab your basket and stick to the perimeter for healthy fare.  When reading labels and ingredient lists, remember the saying…”If your grandmother wouldn’t recognize it…don’t eat it.”  This is a great moto to live and eat by as if Mother Earth didn’t create it, you shouldn’t be eatin’ it!


So, get out there and pick up some veggies this week in celebration of Earth Day and the beautiful, natural and ‘clean’ foods that Mother Earth has given us.

Try adding a new fruit or veggie to your day…I assure you, you’ll enjoy the taste and get hooked on a new favorite…try a daikon radish or a purple cauliflower..how about white asparagus or a star fruit?  Have fun and experiment with new produce and before you know it, you’re ‘lifestyle’ of eating will be Greener and Cleaner in no time.

Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day!! These are great tips! :)

I celebrated today by taking my first grade class out on the school grounds and we picked up trash. You never would believe how excited kids get about finding as much trash as they can. They really do want to help out the Earth, it’s so sweet!! :)
