I’m the last person to ever give up leather, and I’m not even going there.
But wouldn’t it be nice to: find a product as supple, durable as leather and eco conscious; not have to worry about what harmful effects are being emitted from WiFI; plug in a light bulb and forget about changing it for 27 years? And, what about the products we put onto our body. We’ve become a society that takes such a close look at the foods with put into our mouths, but not the toxins we slather onto our skin.
Did you know your skin is your largest organ, absorbing whatever you put onto it and drawing those toxins into your bloodstream?
You think I’m crazy right?
I’m not vegan, nor do I pretend to be, but I am conscious about my footprint on this planet, and if I can find easy and sustainable ways and products that naturally fit into my life, I’d be silly not to adopt them, correct?
They may not be huge steps, but they do make a difference. Last year, my family made a conscious decision to go straw-less, opting for stainless steel straws we could wash and reuse. This January I started using organic face care products that performed just as well if not better than my “well-known” (and might I add expensive) beauty counter brand.
So, preaching aside (cause throwing stones at glass houses and all) here are 4 innovative and truly fabulous GREEN products I have fallen in love with – all discovered at the Green Living Show! Which, just so happens to be taking place this weekend March 27-29 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
