My oldest son’s birthday is on Earth Day. I can’t say for sure, but I suspect becoming a mom on April 22, 2003, may have made me more respectful of Mother Earth than I might have been otherwise, and I do find myself gravitating towards eco-friendly products when I have the choice, from our energy-efficient washing machine to my toddler’s BPA-free cereal bowl. It’s not always easy being green—but fortunately, since I became a mother 10 years ago today, we’ve come a long way, baby, when it’s come to finding eco-friendly baby care products.
Q: Using eco-friendly products is important to me. I know MyChelle natural skincare products are good for my body—but are they also OK for the environment?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetitican Catie Wiggy responds:
MyChelle began with a passion as pure and natural as the Rocky Mountains. Founded in Colorado over 12 years ago, MyChelle Dermaceuticals’ singular obsession has been to create the most effective, nontoxic skin care products in the country. Today, our products deliver powerful, quick and visible results without using nasty ingredients or toxic chemicals.
With Earth Day just a week away, now is a great time to think about changes you can make to help the environment. Seemingly little steps, like bringing reusable bags to the supermarket or turning off lights when you leave a room, can have a big impact when many people take them together! If exercise is a part of your everyday life, here are some things you might do differently to conserve resources and help protect the planet.
We’re all eco-conscious. We’ve come of age in an era in which we learned about turning off the water when we brushed our teeth and recycling our paper and plastic. Yet, what we’ve come to realize is it takes more than conserving water and cashing in our cans.
Like many people, you’ve probably resolved to live healthier in 2013. But if your budget is already stretched thin, you may be hesitant to go on a new diet, start taking supplements or switch to eco-friendly products.
No worries – we have all the money-saving tips you need to achieve resolution success, for less!
Cleaning products that describe themselves as “gentle enough for baby” may sound wonderful when you’re pregnant or have a fragile newborn in your arms, but here’s an old-timer mom prediction for you: After suffering through your first projectile vomiting incident, your first instinct will be to leap for the strongest, industrial-strength cleaning agent you can find. Bleach, abrasive, harsh chemicals—whatever will blast those yucky germs into oblivion…bring it on.
The thing is, those kinds of products aren’t really kid-friendly. That’s why they have all of those poison control warnings on them, often in huge font with a toll-free hotline to call in case your child is exposed to their frightening ingredients.
