The New Year is almost here. It’s a time of celebration, reflection and resolutions. Organic products make a New Year Greener, more eco friendly. This time of year, I’m always organizing, throwing out old and making room for new. Part of being greener is deciding what I can do to make my lifestyle more eco friendly. I eat organic foods, even grow organic vegetables, but buying organic products also is a great way to lesson your carbon footprint and make your life healthier. Eco friendly products, if they truly are eco friendly, are less toxic to the environment and depending on the nature of the product less toxic for you, the consumer. Not all eco friendly products are Organic products. There is a difference. Take green cleaning products for instance it can be made out of less toxic ingredients, but might not be organic ingredients. When buying such products as green cleaning products, be sure to know the difference. Organic means no chemicals were used. Eco friendly just means that it has less toxicity or less carbon footprint than mainstream. Often times in green cleaning products botanical ingredients might be used, but not organic botanical ingredients. Still, product for product botanical is far better than chemicals, if the choice for organic is not an option. When shopping for your everyday products, it is always good to know how green a product is, how earth friendly and non-toxic it is, before buying it. Generally speaking Organic is the purest and best option.
New Year’s resolutions can be fun! Being greener can be educational, fun and a new, healthier lifestyle for the entire family. It doesn’t have to be hum drum, it can actually be creative, exciting.
