Why It’s Important to Use Eco-Friendly Products

Just because Earth Day has passed doesn’t mean we can’t be environmentally friendly all the time. A lot of times, people don’t see the harm that we do to our planet. To see the change you wish to see in the world, you have to be the change!

Here at Conscious Coconut, we are committed to sustainability and producing products that not only make our customers look good, but feel good about using them. Our Travel-Ready Coconut Oil Tubes are laminate aluminum which allows you to work with coconut oil in all consistencies while also avoiding the use of harsh toxic plastics. Along with that, our 8 oz Coconut Oil Jars are glass, making them fully recyclable and reusable. The paper boxes we use are made of recycled paper to ensure every aspect of production is eco-friendly. To learn more, read more about our sustainable packaging in this Instagram post

Advantages of Using Eco-Friendly Products

You are helping the environment. For example, house cleaners are loaded with harsh chemicals. One thing to note is that you are sometimes releasing them to the environment. If a portion of the product goes down the drain it will eventually reach waterways. Using products that are natural and organic help to reduce the amount of waste that we are putting out into the environment, whether we can see it or not.  

You are promoting a healthier lifestyle. When there are harsh chemicals in the products you use at home, this can be irritating to allergies and asthma. Using natural products helps to prevent inhalation of toxic ingredients that can irritate our lungs and bodies. 

It can be budget-friendly. While some products can be more expensive to manufacture, you will be surprised to learn that eco-friendly products are easy on the wallet. Take coconut oil for example. Not only can you use it to clean grease and grime from your kitchen countertops, but it can also be used to moisturize from head-to-toe and even for cooking! It’s one all-natural product that truly does it all. 

Overall, the more you use eco-friendly products, the more you will be keeping the planet happy. You will be reducing the amount of pollution and toxins we breathe and interact with every day. As a last note, do your research online to see if there are any eco-friendly brands or products you use regularly. Try making the switch to eco-friendly products as much as possible!
