This is THE list I check before purchasing anything that goes on or in our bodies ...or is used in and around our home. From cleaning supplies and groceries to sunscreen and lipstick, it's likely on this list at the Environmental Working Group website. I think you'll be surprised at how toxic some things are to us. Pick up your hand lotion, bath soap, laundry detergent, lipstick, bug spray and plug the name into the database and see how it rates on a scale of 0 to 10. Also note the ingredients listed in a product. Some items will surprise you in how inexpensively you could make them yourself!
Embracing the idea to Live Simply began as a way to save money but it has become so much more. I want to make every choice count. Life's short. I don't want lots of regrets. I want lots of good memories and the good health to take me there. The return for us has proved to be so much more than monetary. We feel better. We eat better. We have more time for the important things in life. We have more choices available to us...not less.
What I've found is that I can do a lot MORE for a LOT LESS and improve our health and happiness in the process.
