These days the only phrase you hear all around is ‘Go Green’ because the environment has turned so toxic that its creatures cannot endure it anymore.

- Build up a healthy environment – Do not blame others but do it yourself, the rest will follow you. This should be the spirit when its time to be concerned about your surroundings. When you invest in eco-friendly products you are helping yourself by creating fewer waste materials. For instance, you can buy keyboard powered by solar energy instead of battery operated ones. A composter to lessen food waste and a garbage bag made of plastic. You might also invest in toothbrushes made of bamboo and biodegradable bristles. Woollen dryer balls can help to get rid of the chemicals in fabric softener. Plastic wrapping could be replaced by beeswax reusable wrap and finally silicon straws instead of plastic ones. All these items are available in the market.

- Health benefits – When you do well to the ecology, you do good to your health. For instance, green bed linens and green mattresses are of high value and are very good for health than the usual ones. Is your detergent safe?
