If you’re making the effort to become an earth-friendly shopper, it may sometimes feel easier said than done.
3 Earth-Friendly Materials
With all the variety of products out there, how do you even sift through the choices and decide what to get? While being an earth-conscious might be rated high on your priority list, the quality of what you’re buying is probably just as important to you as well. By understanding the benefits of some of the most popular natural materials, you can have an easier time finding products that are not only high-quality but good for preserving the environment, too!
When on the search for natural materials, cotton is one of the most popular materials available today. With even more options, such as organic varieties, you can feel even more confident using a material that’s withstood the test of time. One major benefit of cotton is that it is grown from a plant which is found in many countries around the world, which is good news for those wanting products that are earth-friendly and cruelty-free. After the cotton is harvested it has a variety of ideal uses such as the following:
- Breathable fabrics for clothing and other textile products
- Absorbent hygiene products for everyday use and medical purposes
- Everyday products such as paper, book bindings and filters
Another rising star in the world of natural, earth-friendly materials is bamboo. Different varieties of bamboo can be found globally in Sub-Saharan Africa, South America, North America, Australia, and of course Asia where it also home to the beloved panda. Because its strong, yet fibrous nature, it has a variety of uses. This includes the following:
- furniture construction
- clothing and fabric
- global décor
Since bamboo is durable yet biodegradable, it makes an environmentally responsible replacement for frequently disposed of items. For example, by opting for a pillow from Cariloha Bamboo you can feel less guilty about getting rid of it once it’s time for a replacement every one-to-three years or so.
When you’re perusing the natural products aisle, you’re likely to come across items products made from hemp. Not only is hemp praised for being able to replace paper and plastic products, but it can also be used in many types of health and beauty products. Some of these items can be used for the following applications:
- rejuvenating skin
- nail and cuticle care
- dry skin relief
Hemp comes from the same plant as a popular drug, but it does not have any of the effects that the drug is famous for. So hemp can be used without concern.
With a quick search, you can easily find great quality products to use while helping the earth at the same time. One of the easiest methods is purchasing directly from reputable, environmentally responsible vendors. If you can’t access any shops available locally, getting familiar with popular brands and purchasing them online can be a convenient alternative. Whatever your strategy, you can feel good about using products that work effectively, are good for you, and would get Mother Nature’s seal of approval.
