As we start out 2019 and continue our journey to a healthier and greener lifestyle, let us strive to remove the toxic products we use each day. With this in mind, I want to remind you of the series we shared with you last year on removing toxins from your life. You can read all about it by clicking on the image links below.
A great tool at our disposal is a website called “EWG“. This website rates numerous health and beauty products on a scoring system with regard to their toxicity level. The lower the score, the healthier and cleaner the product. Products with higher scores should be avoided or removed from your life. You can read more about the EWG scoring system by clicking on the image below.
I encourage you to score the products you use on a daily basis and swap them out for better options. Start with the highest scoring products first and work your way down. Remember, this is a journey and the small steps you make towards a greener and healthier lifestyle add up over time.
EWG has an app to help you evaluate products. This is super-convenient while you are out shopping. The app will also help you evaluate foods and we will cover that topic in a future post.
As always, if you have any questions for us, do not hesitate to ask.
