10 simple ways to use less oil | Greenpeace International

Saw this on Facebook this evening:

10 simple ways to use less oil | Greenpeace International

The simple ways to use less oil in relation to products are:
  • Prefer products packaged without plastic.
  • Buy beauty products (shampoo, soap, make-up) based on natural ingredients, not oil.
  • Prefer locally produced products (less transport involved).
These all apply to our soap- and, in addition, handmade cold process soap uses very little energy in the making- our natural vegetable oils are melted and heated for just a short while, to get them to the correct temperature before we add the lye-water and that's it. Everything else is done by hand. So a lot greener than mass-produced cleansing products. And no parabens or SLS.
