One of the best ways to make it happen is to opt for your own earth-friendly holiday decoration. The beauty of it is that this costs you very little, as it is possible to recycle and repurpose things you already possess.

As much as I love to use completely natural brands (you guys know which ones I love), I also love the results I get from using brands that combine nature with advanced scientific ingredients & I don’t feel the least bit bad or inauthentic for using them either! 😛 See, I believe that science and nature can co-exist as long as certain criteria are followed.

These thoughtfully selected ingredients are carefully blended using the latest “green” cold pressing technology in order to maintain their integrity, while also minimizing their carbon footprint.

While most people I know are making Italian dishes on Sundays, I’m usually making Coconut Curry or Aloo Palak! Of course, I also need to have naan bread and basmati rice to go with!
