Following the philosophy of trying to be “as green as I can be,” I look at each company and product and really decide if it helps our family live greener, healthier, more natural and sustainable. Will it help us live a simpler, more abundant, joyful life?
Some of the things I look for are:
Natural and organic where possible
No artificial colors or flavors
I prefer no preservatives -but sometimes they are needed for saftey
Non-toxic (free of BPA, phthaltes, or any other unhealthy toxins)
The “5? ingredient rule for food products
2. Environmentally Conscious:
The use of recyclable packaging materials
Support of environmental causes
Eco-conscious beliefs and actions
Minimizing a negative effect on our planet
Renewable energy for production
Organic farming and heirloom crops
