So what does greener and cleaner mean to me? I try to look for three main things:
• Ingredients: Products with identifiable ingredients and no synthetic fragrances.
• Materials: Things like glass, recycled materials, and other alternatives to traditional plastics, such as silicone.
• Company mission: I try to find companies with a conscience that work to reduce their carbon footprints and cut back on unnecessary consumer packaging.
And while that might sound like a lot, I found it usually only took a super-quick search to find products that are well reviewed and even similar in price to the ones I already used!
I consider myself pro-environment and have always tried to do *the right thing*, but I realized there were so many products I've used for so long that I didn't even think twice about what was in them.
