Organic non-toxic products are healthier for our homes and our environment. Today most of us search for healthy and all natural food, body and cleaning products. We want products that are:
- Healthy for our bodies and our homes
- Respectful of, and do not harm, our environment
- Made by green businesses.
But sometimes it just doesn’t feel practical to buy organic non-toxic products because:
- They may be harder to find
- The price point is higher
- You might wonder if it is worth it to spend the extra money on organic food, beauty products and cleaning products.
I want to share with you my favorite simple tips for buying organic non-toxic products online:
Whether you are buying food, beauty or cleaning products, reading ingredient labels is essential. Knowing the specific ingredients in the food you are eating, in the beauty product you are applying to your body, and in the products you use to clean your house with is a good practice. When buying online, take the time to read the ingredient list. Ignorance never helped anyone!
Buy Your Favorite Staples In Bulk:
When you buy your favorite organic staples in bulk, you save money and reduce packaging waste. Two keys about buying bulk food are:
- Chose the healthy foods you are sure to eat.
- Purchase goods you know you will use.
You defeat the point if you buy in bulk and never use it! It also ensures that you will decrease the packaging of the smaller portions you buy.
Focus on Products You Love Already
Shopping online takes time and energy. Sometimes it is fun to search for your next favorite organic product. Often times, it is a distraction. You don’t want to be looking for the next best product when you already have favorites. Save time by keeping a list of brands you love and keep reusing them. Talk to friends and family about eco-friendly brands they love. Remember, the idea is not to waste your precious time searching for new products.
