Next time you reach for a sprig of parsley to decorate your favorite dish, consider this…mint offers a ton of beneficial properties, aside from freshening your breath. Mint is much more complex than just an ice cream flavor or pretty garnish — it  belongs to a large family of over 30 species, the most common being peppermint and spearmint. Let’s just take a minute to honor this little herb and all that it does for us.

best eco-friendly swimwear

tartelettes, May has arrived, and you know what that means: swimsuit season! Although bathing suit shopping sometimes gets a bad rap, this blogger happens to love sifting through all those racks of brightly colored fabric and fun silhouettes. And now, with the growing selection of eco-friendly options out there, it’s even more enjoyable. Designers big and small are incorporating recycled materials, organic fabrics, and natural dyes into their designs, so that green fashionistas no longer have to choose between standards and style!

Here are a few brands who have amped up their swimwear with a dose of sexy sustainability, with looks to suit any beach style.

As the name implies, Eco Swim is all about sustainable swimwear: all their fabrics are made from recycled materials.

Could this bright frilly one-piece be any cuter? Aussie brand Emobi uses earth-friendly, water-based dyes in their signature bright prints.

Vitamin A has been the go-to swimsuit brand for Hollywood’s A-List for years because of their alluring designs and flattering cuts. Now, they’ve launched a gorgeous capsule collection made from 100% recycled nylon.

Odina embodies both functionatlity and responsibility. Their surfer-friendly suits are made from recycled nylon and spandex; their nylon is made from post-consumer plastics. Pretty amazing – and just plain pretty.

bobble makes water better

Yesterday the tarte team got a nice surprise package from Water Bobble! The company, who’s mission is to make clean water portable while helping to eliminate plastic water bottle waste, sent over a big box of their innovative and beautifully designed reusable, water filtering bottles.  The bobble’s filters are replaceable, but each one equates to 300 single-serve bottles. Yeah, that’s a lot of bottles.

Both functional and attractive, we’re psyched to test out our new bobbles. Thanks Water Bobble, you truly do make water better!
