It’s probably a good time now to initiate a close relationship with Mother Nature. Going green and organic is not just a label anymore but a lifestyle that will be very beneficial to future generations.
This green concept can be applied to a lot of aspects in our daily lives as it involves the use of products and services that do not harm the environment in any way. Whether you are a middle class family, CEO of a company, day care manager or a conscious community, choosing to adopt eco‐friendly activities will make a tremendous impact on the health of the environment.
From eating food, using beauty and skin care products, cleaning, switching off the lights to cycling as a mode of transportation, there are many so many health benefits associated with using green and organic products. If you go green, you will lead a healthier life by reducing pollution and carbon footprints. Products with harmful chemicals deplete the ozone layer leading to global climatic changes that cause heat waves, droughts and floods.
However, when you opt to choose organic cleaning products, no harmful chemicals will be released to the environment thus better quality air and a healthier environment. The products also keep kids safe by removing chemicals that can cause asthma and other allergies.
Going green and organic also greatly reduces costs. When you decide to switch off the lights when not in use, or not wasting water, you save money that you could have spent for these resources. Eco‐friendly cleaning products are also much cheaper compared conventional cleaning products and reduce wastage with recyclable packaging. Companies which use these environmental friendly products also reduce the risk of chemical spills, fires and notice a reduction of sick days for employees making the work place more productive.
An organic lifestyle ensures that everyone around you is safe as you get more nutritious food and tastier food. Chemicals in food have been known to cause birth defects and cancer and many other illnesses. Additionally, conventional cleaning products also release chemicals that burn eyes and skin causing skin burns and blindness. Green and organic products meet the standards of inhalation toxicity and are not corrosive. This makes them pet safe and pet‐friendly also as they do not release strong chemical odors in the air leading to a purer environment.
As more and more people become concerned with their health and realize the harsh effects of the chemicals in their food, skin care products, shampoos and cleaning products; they are going back to the drawing board with eco‐friendly products. Only then can you enjoy a more fruitful and happier life. Go green!
