Green Teen Week: Rebel Responsibly

Teenager Now that school's out for summer, green teens can focus more on their eco-friendly deeds. With that in mind, this week's tips are geared toward youngsters.

Tip #2: Walk the Wild Side

Teen years are often a time of bold experimentation – but you can change your appearance without changing how you treat the environment. If you like to match your hair color to the season, consider dyes that use natural, organic ingredients, such as Ecocolors (but remember that any permanent hair dye contains trace amounts of toxins).

As for tattoos, the inks haven't been FDA-approved, but some artists use vegan pigments free of harmful chemicals. Health concerns considered, you’re better off with body piercings – but buy your new hoops and studs from organic, eco-friendly jewelers such as OneTribe.

Tell us: How do you rebel responsibly?
