Eco-Friendly or Non-Toxic Products?

Green

Green is an umbrella term for an eco-friendly product. Green products are usually made locally or from recycled materials and many companies have come a long way in providing good quality sustainable products. However, if you want to ensure the product is truly green, look for an accredited logo on the packaging and do not get caught out with in-house accreditation logos or pictures of leaves, trees and sage-green colours on home, food and skin care products created by clever marketing teams.

Want a Healthy Kitchen? Use Green Products

how to eat eco friendly

We have all seen or heard about the floating islands of trash in our oceans, much of it being plastic. As the plastics break down, particles are being consumed with the water and passed through the food chain. Already across the globe, young people are taking time away from school to urge stronger action by governments towards climate change.

Individually, we can all make a change to the future of the planet, through our daily living. The kitchen is the one room in the home that creates the most waste. This includes many single-use products like paper towels, carrier bags, cling-film and food bags, plastic water bottles and much more. You can create a healthy kitchen by removing waste and the use of green products that do not harm you or the atmosphere in which you live.

being eco-friendly is smart

Being eco-friendly is easy to do and can improve your lifestyle whilst protecting the environment.

Guardian Ecostore: About Us

Small changes can make a big difference. Eating green is not about eating cabbage, kale or lettuce, but about how we can be environmentally friendly whilst we still eat the foods we love, in a green and healthy way. Here we have a look at different options to make more changes in a combined shop green guide, and an eat green guide.

From local spade to local fork

The easiest way to be environmentally friendly when it comes to what you eat is to buy food grown locally. This means that you can focus on eating foods that are in season, which saves on transport costs as foods are not flown in from overseas. Sourcing local foods is not only very environmentally friendly, but the food is fresher and tastes better as it has not been sitting in crates awaiting transport. And there is less fuel used in getting the food form the spade to your fork. Whilst not all foods can be eaten raw, save energy and eat raw foods such as salads.
