About 5 years ago now my sister introduced me to the Environmental Working Group which has a huge online data base for you to see what is actually in every product and what the health concerns are if any. Once I was able to see how harsh and unsafe the products I was using were – it was time to make a switch. For good!
Because I am a busy Mom of three and was just learning to forgo the convenient, sweet smelling, attractively packaged products I had always bought; the ones that are easy to buy as they are at any store, I decided I still wanted to “buy” my products. But it had to be somewhere safe. It took a lot of research and searching but slowly but surely I was able to find everything we needed and I actually liked the products.
