The toiletries and cosmetics in our house are slowing turning green. This week I purchased a shampoo that should be safer on the environment and better for my body. Unfortunately, the brand I purchased does not appear in the Skin Deep database (http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/). But, I'm getting pretty savvy at reading labels, and can say that there aren't any parabens, pthalates, fragrances or SLS or other really bad ingredients in this shampoo.
It smells like apple cider (yummy), and leaves my hair feeling clean and soft. DH has even commented on how nice my hair smells. The shampoo was a reasonable price for the "green" component of it, so I am happy to stick with this new brand.
The inspiration for this blog came after reading Vanessa Farquharson's book, Sleeping Naked is Green, and wondering if her new eco-lifestyle was really applicable to a family of 5 that was already fairly environmentally friendly. At the urging of a friend, I took on the challenge of trying to improve my family's "green-ness", using the book as a template. This blog will record our attempts to improve our environmental foot-print one small change at a time.
