But what is Eco-friendly?

Eco-friendly means literally earth-friendly or not harmful to the environment. This term usually refers to products that contribute to ecological living or practices that help conserve resources such as water and energy.

Ecological products also avoid contributions to air, water and land pollution. You can engage in environmentally friendly habits or practices by becoming more aware of how you use resources.

Qualifications of an Eco-friendly product
Making a truly eco-friendly product keeps environmental and human safety in mind. At a minimum, the product is non-toxic.

Other ecological attributes include the use of sustainably grown or grown ingredients produced in ways that do not deplete the ecosystem.

Organic ingredients or materials are grown without toxic pesticides or herbicides. Products with "recycled materials" contain glass, wood, metal or plastic recovered from waste products and transformed into something new.

Biodegradable products decompose through natural decomposition, which is less taxable in landfills and the ecosystem as a whole.

Examples of Eco-friendly Practices

You can develop ecological habits to help you use less and make the most of what you have. To start with you could reuse or upcycle things in your own home instead of purchasing new.  Also, supporting local supplies and producers of organic and eco friendly products is another way to develop an ecological habit.

We know that is not always easy to change some habits, but a simple change can change all your life. Don’t be afraid to start to be a sustentable person
