If you have ever taken a moment to decipher the ingredients in your favorite cleaner you'll find some pretty nasty stuff. Bleach, ammonia, petro-chemicals (meaning they're derived from oil products) and other carcinogenic ingredients are common place in just about every household cleaning product. But this doesn't have to be! Did you know Apple Cider Vinegar can clean dirty floors and give you shiny hair
? Or that the acids found in citrus fruit can do a mean job cleaning soap scum as well supply you with vitamin C? Mother Nature is more powerful than we think, so toss out those toxin filled bottles and use cleaners like Ecover Ecological Cream Scrub
. Made with ingredients you can pronounce (water, clay) this cleaner has plant based and biodegradable components, and will still clean the heck out of your bathroom and kitchen. Paper Goods
Conventional baby wipes, toilet paper, diapers, and tampons are all made from cotton which is grown using toxic pesticides, then bleached with chlorine. This means every time you use them your body is ingesting these pesticides and toxins into your blood stream. Now that you know the ugly truth, get smart and buy eco-friendly products from Seventh Generation
. They're made with 100% organic cotton and are free of synthetic dyes and perfumes. This brand also makes biodegradable cleaners, laundry detergents, and other household products.Skin and Body Care
A few years ago I made the switch to all natural beauty products and save for my favorite blue mascara and eyebrow powder, my beauty regime gets a green stamp. Of course like everything in life finding the perfect skin care products involves trial and error, and of the hundreds that I've tried, there are a few I swear by. A recent addition to my favorites is Kiss My Face Jojoba and Mint Facial Scrub
. After having a bout of acne, I've renewed my commitment to exfoliating, and this creamy scrub stands out from others. Just one use and my complexion was brighter, my skin was softer, and overall I looked as if I just had a mild peel. Considering I wasn't expected these kind of results, I'm pretty impressed all this can cost only $14.99. Some of my other favorite all natural beauty brands are MyChelle, Alba, Jason, and Skin By Monica. Their Perfection C Cream
gives just the right amount of moisture to my oily prone skin.
There you have it. A few ways to go green, help save our environment, and stock up on cash back! For more tips check out the Shop Green
