The organics greenie movement has become very popular in 2010 and many people are striving to reduce their carbon footprint. The problem is that some of the efforts being made are minimal and don't make sense. A good example of this is the agenda to conserve water and stop drinking water from plastic bottles. These are both very important steps to take toward reducing our carbon footprint on Mother Earth and I certainly do commend them. The problem is that there are those who believe that providing they're conserving water and drinking water from a non-plastic bottle, it's okay and safe to pour toxic petro-chemicals down the drain.
I wholeheartedly disagree with this way of thinking. Being mindful of water usage is important, but it does not make any sense to take a 3-minute shower while washing your hair with toxic petro-chemicals that will damage the indoor and outdoor air, the groundwater, and the wildlife. And please remember, you may be drinking water from a clean source, but if you're using hair and skin care products that are laden with toxic petro-chemicals, your cells will absorb everything like a sponge because the skin is the largest organ.
A true environmentalist cares for his or her personal health and the health of the planet equally. Please stop polluting Mother Earth and learn how products that contain 100% organic herbal plant essences can help you improve your health. Please improve your relationship with Mother nature and show her honor, respect, compassion, and gentleness.
