The recent Earth Day celebration continues to be a pillar in spreading the value of sustainable agriculture and production practices, along with giving emphasis on the value of waste reduction and recycling.
But far from being just an annually celebrated event, everyday days can be spent like how Earth Day is ideally envisioned to be with the everyday use of eco-friendly products which bear plus factors over their non-organic or environmentally damaging produced counterparts.
Here are some of them.
Clothing and apparel items derived from organic cotton, organic hemp, recycled materials and other eco-friendly alternatives of non-organic/synthetic fabrics. Not only are these fabrics softer and more attuned to fit well with wearers, advocating the use of organic clothes helps spread the value of going organic into production sectors, facilitating a shift from conventional norms to the ideals of environmentally sustainable production options.
Chemical-free cosmetics. Users of chemical-free cosmetics aren’t only treated to natural glows and more earth-toned shades, but allergies and chemical reactions on skin are greatly reduced, with chemical-free cosmetic items made from shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil, chamomile and apricot.
Botanical oil-based shampoos. Opting for gluten-free, botanical oil-based shampoos aren’t only items which cleanses and revitalizes hair, but also does its part in keeping the environment clean and chemical free.
Plant-based detergents which work as well as chemically-driven detergent products. Typically, these items are also packaged in recycled containers, lessening the carbon footprint hailing from the production of separate containers.
Paints which aren’t made with formaldehyde or phthalates. With no impact in the emission of volatile compounds which can affect the overall state of the atmosphere, opting for house paints free from synthetic chemical compounds reduces the need for their production, greatly having an impact in the standards of how paints are being produced.
These items, among many, are great to have around, must-have essentials which easily make everyday days Earth Day celebrations on their own.
