- Did you like the product? What did you like? What aspects of the products didn’t you care for? Would you buy it again?
- Did the product or company appear to be be truly sustainable? Do you suspect them of greenwashing?
you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want”
This week, I was able to buy a so-called sustainable sunscreen, Alba Botanica, on the personal recommendation of one of my "green" friends. I say "so-called sustainable" because I haven't fully done my research on the company or product yet. The Alba Botanica website does state that they do not use parabens, sulfates, or phthalates and they do not test on animals. In fact their products are 100% vegetarian. So they are off to a great start to being a truly sustainable product.
Once again, when you are looking for sustainable products to buy or test, eco-labels can be helpful, but be sure you know by what standards the label certifies by. Green Seal is one of the most trustworthy sustainable certification companies out there. If you are looking truly sustainable products in the realm of paper products (printing paper, etc), household products (laundry soaps, etc), hand soaps & cleaners, household & industrial cleaning products, paints & construction materials, food packaging, and even hotels Green Seal is a great source. They are now working on their certification processes on personal care products, as well.
We hope you are enjoying the challenges!
