Choosing to use environmentally friendly products.
As consumers we have the power to cause real change. Every time we select truly green products, we step away from the products that cause harm to us and our environment and step closer to a healthier, cleaner, better world. More and more eco friendly products are available to choose from.
What Environmentally Friendly Products are Available for Our Use?
It is the search for environmentally friendly products that has led to the creation of this site. There is a growing desire to make healthy product choices and to choose ways to protect the environment at the same time. Our objective is to improve awareness about environmental issues and assist people with buying eco friendly products. By consistently making green and organic purchases we gradually shift the economy away from toxic alternatives. We will continue to seek out new earth-friendly products and where possible, make them available through this site. Please support us in this effort.
Awareness is growing of the toxic build-up in our own bodies from toxins in the air, water and soil. A growing realization is that organic gardening and farming methods are critical for the protection of healthy soil and to stop the toxic run-off into rivers and lakes.
Many scientists believe that our ever-increasing use of fossil fuels is the main cause of the climate changes we are seeing all over the world. It is being suggested that unless there is a rapid move away from the use of fossil fuels the dramatic weather patterns we are seeing will get much worse.
During the last few years there has been an impressive increase in the development of alternative energy sources. These include photo-voltaic solar panels and solar heat collectors. Wind turbines are being utilized by individuals for off-grid applications, as well as large solar and wind-farms to generate electric power for energy providers. There are plans to harness energy from the ocean tides. Another alternative is geo-thermal heat which draws heat from the earth, or goes even deeper to tap the extreme heat of the earth's inner core.
