Dedicate Time to De-Grease: Commit to a Weekend Without Oil with these Top Petroleum-Free Products

Aug 20, 2010 | Updated May 25, 2011

Most of us understand the correlation between oil and cars - transportation accounts for 40 percent of our petroleum consumption. What many of us are not as conscious of is the amount of oil-based products we use every day. Nearly 10 percent of U.S. petroleum is used to make plastic products alone, which equates to approximately 2 million barrels a day! That's why the entire ecofabulous team is excited about participating in The Weekend Without Oil, coming up on August 21st-22nd. Check out the Weekend Without Oil PSA below featuring the cast of MTV's The Buried Life, sign the pledge and then read up on all the great alternatives we've picked - petroleum-free products that are just as stylish as they are sustainable.
