We are pretty green in my house. We conserve as much energy as we can, use cloth diapers, reduce waste, and I try to reduce the amount of chemicals that we use in our home and on our bodies. I feel that not only is it healthier, it is our social responsibility. Earth’s resources are finite and I feel very strongly that we need to start being more conscious of what we consume in order to leave a better planet for our children and grandchildren.
I am always happy to learn about new products that are more Earth-friendly in their ingredients and packaging. Thanks to #CollectiveBias I have now learned of a new greener line of products. I went right out to Walgreens to buy some of these products from #WalgreensOlogy to try.
I purchased a cart full of goodies – Ology bath tissue, facial tissue, paper towels, all purpose cleaner, laundry detergent, shampoo, conditioner, and bar soap.
I was happy to see that Ology products are free of DEA, TEA, parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde and other nasty stuff that are often found in commercial household products. That is the last thing that I want lingering on my countertops and in the clothes we wear. Our skin is our largest organ and when chemicals are absorbed through the skin it leaves our entire body at risk. That’s not a risk that I am willing to take with myself or my children.
Not only do I love natural products for what isn’t in them, but I love how they smell. The scents are more realistic as opposed to excessively perfumy. Ology doesn’t use artificial fragrances and dyes so they smell delicious!
I love that more natural cleaners and household products are becoming more readily available at places like Walgreens. Now I can make sure that this Earth Day and every day my healthy home will stay healthy by eliminating more chemical laden commercial products and replacing them with more natural alternatives like Ology.
What will you be doing to celebrate this Earth Day?
