About 2 weeks ago I received an email from Sherry D., a new reader of The Good Human. (Welcome, Sherry!) She is a new convert to trying to live a greener lifestyle and asked me about what kind of products I use in my every day life. While they can vary from month to month, depending on what is on sale at either Whole Foods or Natural Grocers or if I feel like making something from scratch instead, I figured a photo essay of the products I use here at my house might be of some interest to a few other people too, as well as Sherry. So let’s take a look, shall we?
Well, there you have it – all the personal and household products I use in my own home. I do make my own cleaners a few times a year as well (I figured taking a picture of a spray bottle filled with clear liquid wouldn’t be that exciting though, so I left those out) and I also sometimes use bars of soap in the shower to avoid more plastic packaging. Could I do even better by making ALL of my own cleaning and personal care products? Yes, of course! However, a few of the known alternatives such as baking soda toothpaste & deodorant don’t work for me – so it’s the packaged stuff for now. The key is to try to do as best you can. So Sherry, I hope this helps point you in the direction of a few popular “green” products, and welcome to the club!
