Let’s face it, almost everything we come into contact with on a daily basis has chemicals that would harm our health. Such items could range from cleaning supplies, food, clothes we wear and toys the children play with, among others. The most we can do is eliminate what we are capable of step by step.
It thereby calls for making a change to green or organic living. It is imperative to note that the change process cannot just happen overnight. It involves slowly changing and adopting the use of more healthy friendly foods and products.
Start with simple things like growing your vegetables in the kitchen. By so doing, it is both inexpensive and will give better nutrients since the vegetables will be freshly picked and consumed. When you have to buy, opt for the organic farmers market instead of supermarkets or grocery stores as this will save you some money.
Try buying used clothes because these have gone through several rounds of cleaning before and hence most f the chemicals have been washed off. It is also important to buy clothes when there is a sale going on since this will save you a few dollars that can be used for other needs.
Only buy your makeup from organic and natural dealers or better still, research for ways to make makeup with natural ingredients. Save more energy and reduce power bills by blotting and squeezing your hair dry with towels instead of using dryers.
Taking these small steps will have an enormous positive impact in your life over time. This way you will be free of toxic chemicals and the environment will benefit too.
