This marks the last green tip from Summer in our 31 days of Red and Green here on Mom Start. Hopefully Summer will grace us with many more green tips and steps on making our lives more eco friendly in the future. Her last tip is about buying chemical free products and these are her chemical free product selections.
Are you ready to begin the New Year? Moreover, is your house ready for the New Year? Try and make yourself greener in the New Year by purchasing products not tested on animals and chemical-free. It is ok to start off with small changes in your toiletries. You know, small changes like in your shampoo, conditioner, make-up, lotions, toothpaste, etc. are a great place to start. I’ll share with you some of my favorite chemical free products:
Shampoo, Conditioner, and Body Wash – Trader Joe’s Refresh (for about $2 a bottle it’s a steal)
Lotions – St. Ives lotion
Deodorant – Arm & Hammer Essentials Natural Deodorant and Tom’s of Maine (make sure there’s no antiperspirant and that it’s aluminum free)
In finding and using products like these I feel good about my body and the environment. If needed, take little steps to introduce products such as these into your home. These are products I actually use and love. Be sure, as with any new product, that you test new products on a small area of skin if you have sensitive skin or believe you may have a reaction on a product.
Thank you for joining me in my red and GREEN December 2010 adventures! Hope I gave you some great ideas that made you and yours healthier and happier. Happy New Year!
