We are all trying to be more environmentally conscious and mindful of ethical living and for many a huge part of this is taking steps to ensure that we are making great use of the huge variety of organic products that are available to us these days. Here is a list of 5 of the most common and useful categories of items that we might consider purchasing for the home.
Supply of Healthy Food
Where else would we start other than our diets? It is the most common thing we start to think about when we hear the term organic is food. It is now the case that there is a much bigger variety of organic produce than in the past. Pretty much every fruit and vegetable can be had as an organic version. But the one area that we have seen a real rise in recent times is all other products, there are pizzas, ready meals, and even desserts. So as you can see the choice is ever increasing and the more it becomes standard the more available, accessible and affordable it will be.
Cleaning products are essential and you’ll find them in every house in the land. But one big problem with this is the environmental damage that harsh chemicals can do to the water system. This can easily be avoided by using organic cleaning products, they are really widely available these days and are only a little more expensive than regular ones.
Oils & Scents
Another thing that is becoming much more common is the use of essential oils for massages and scents in your home. You can get essential oils for headaches and other such ailments. Even the use of alternative therapies such as CBD oil has become much more common.
It should come as no surprise that given the range of products that are on the market that we’ve covered so far that soap and other personal cleaning products are available as organic now as well. It’s not just simple bars of soap as well, we can have shampoos, conditioners, and other things as well. One thing that is very important to remember is that although the product itself is organic is the packaging organic or sustainable? If it is plastic packaging then the answer is almost certainly a no, although if it has to be then at least check if it’s from a recycled source.
Following on from what we’ve just said about plastic and the increased awareness of the very real plastic pollution problem that the world is facing. It’s not until we think about it we realize how much of our food storage is made from plastic. Tupperware and sandwich bags are good examples of this. We can use alternatives quite easily such as bamboo tubs and coffee cups or disposable bags made from products such as compostable bags. There are also reusable food wraps and containers as well available.
