I Attended a Neutrogena Naturals Event with Kristen Bell

One pair of jeans is the equivalent of 2,000 gallons of water. One glass of beer is the equivalent of 20 gallons of water. One steak is the equivalent of 1,000 gallons of water. If those statistics don't put things into perspective for us, I don't know what will. It makes the dire situation of potential water loss scary when it's laid out in such plain language. And it should. It should make us all a little bit nervous, a little bit more willing to educate ourselves -- something that Neutrogena Naturals ambassador Kristen Bell advocates.

When I attended the Neutrogena Naturals Event on October 10, I entered the room and three life-sized posters stared me in the face depicting the above statistics. I knew I wanted to learn more, and not just about our current situation, but about how we can all educate ourselves better and take preventative measures. Lucky for us, the Nature Conservancy has done just that.

The Conservancy has partnered up with Neutrogena to create the Neutrogena Naturals line, a line of products with all the stuff that keeps our skin clean (minus the bad chemicals). Actress Kristen Bell uses the products herself and even takes care to mention that just because the products don't have the chemicals in them doesn't mean they don't work, in fact they work better!
