PAPR Deodorant: Your New Go To

By letscutcarbon | April 7, 2020

I have been exploring natural deodorant options for years from salt crystals to pastes and they all had a couple of things in common. They worked just enough for me to not smell offensive and they all had plastic applicators and packaging. With PAPR I not only don’t smell bad, even after a workout I smell good! There are 5 scents currently available, I am using So Hot Right Now which has sexy musky smell. I think it’s meant for men, but I dig it. The packaging is made from responsibly sourced paper and is biodegradable.

Making The Most of Your Food

By letscutcarbon | March 30, 2020

Amid figuring out our new normal with COVID-19 challenges, I was inspired by this sprouting red onion I found in the back of my produce drawer. Agriculture is the second highest emitter of GHG’s after energy, and one third of food globally is wasted costing America alone $218 billion per year. As grocery store shelves are near empty, this is an opportune time to establish better habits at home to reduce food waste, cut greenhouse gas emissions, and save money.

Know your Joe:What is Sustainable Coffee?

By letscutcarbon | March 7, 2020

Coffee, I could not image starting my day without it. Whether it’s a normal workday, project weekend, or mountain top camping, I always start my day with a hot cup of joe. American’s alone consume 400 million cups of coffee a day. However, not all coffee is produced equally. Coffee is on the brink of extinction according to scientists at Britain’s Royal Botanical Gardens due to worsening climate conditions and deforestation.  Is your cup of coffee helping or hurting human equality and environmental sustainability?
