Top 10 Fav Eco-friendly Products I USE.
Hey folks, so I decided I would make a list of my top 10 fav Eco-friendly products I use in my everyday life. Especially because I have recently had a lot of friends messaging me with questions about different products that are out there.
10.) Gardening: since it is spring and time to plant and garden, you’re going to have to prepare for a lot of bugs in your plants, veggies, and flowers. That’s the name of the game folks. I use EcoSmart “Organic” Garden Insect Killer. I put Organic in quotes because it is NOT USDA Certified. However, the ingredients are pretty good, it’s safe around pets and children, and it’s the best I could find SO FAR. I am still on the hunt though, for even better with less chemicals and possibly a certification. Works great though. Smells good. All that jazz.
9.) Cleaning: METHOD METHOD METHOD. I love method. It’s all plant-based chemicals, ingredients are pretty safe, very gentle, safe around pets, and their cleaners always smell great. I use Method wood floor cleaner, glass cleaner, anti-bac cleaner, all purpose cleaner, shower cleaner, and I’ve even used their hand soap, laundry detergent, and dish soap. However, I do have different favorites for those last 3 soaps. I will get to those next.
8.) Laundry Detergent: ECOS. Biodegradable. Great scents. My fav is Lemongrass. Gentle. My skin is very sensitive and I can have some major allergic reactions to certain detergents if I’m not careful. So, I love this stuff.
7.) Hand Soap: I have two favorites. Meyers & Nourish. We just started using Meyers and we love it. Their scents are kinda of for the earthy, non-floral loving folk. We have the Basil and Parsley scented soaps. They also have Radish, Lemon Verbena, and Lavender for the girly girls. Nourish is great because it’s USDA certified Organic. These soaps smell great, feel great, and keep my hands soft.
6.) Lotion: Egyptian Magic is a great lotion. There’s like, 5 ingredients. All of which you can understand. Made with Beeswax. LOVE. However, still looking for the best FACE LOTION.
5.) Toothpaste/Mouthwash: Jason. All the way Jason. DON’T USE TOM’S. STOP IT. Ugh. I roll my eyes to Tom’s. Jason is amazing and they have the best tasting mouthwash and toothpaste.
4.) Toothbrush: Preserve. I’ve never had a toothbrush that makes my teeth LITERALLY squeaky clean. PLUS, the Brissels are made of BPA free silicone, and the handle is made of recycled yogurt cups. Also, the package they come in has a prepaid mailer addressed so that when you’re done with it, you send it back, they recycle the plastic, and the process starts all over. BRILLIANT!
3.) Vegetable Wash: Veggie Wash. For both fruits and veggies. Doesn’t leave a bad aftertaste. Super safe ingredients. Works well.
2.) Shampoo & Conditioner: CAROL’S DAUGHTER. So gentle. SO SOFT. Little chemicals and NO HARMFUL chemicals. Best. Shampoo. Ever. AND my hair smells great all day.
1.) (WARNING- THIS ONE’S FOR THE LADIES) Feminine Products: The Diva Cup. I SWEAR BY THIS THING. BPA free silicone. Wake up. Put it in. Come home. Rinse it out. Put it back in. Go to bed. Wake up. Repeat. CAN’T FEEL A THING. You can swim with it, run, yoga, dance, poop, shower, pee, etc.. It’s amazing. Best part is that you’re saving a TON of money and you’re not sticking pesticide/bleached/chlorine filled cotton tampons and pads in or around your sensitive lady parts.
