Eco-Chic Shopping: Get Your Healthy Food and Product Shop On With The Natural Store

As many of you know, I’ve made this whole decision to try and eat better and feel better. Part of that has to do with removing the majority of things out of the house that would cause me to continue to live an unhealthy lifestyle. This started with the refrigerator and the cabinets but it’s expanded to every single thing I use on a regular basis in my home: cleaning supplies, paper goods, pet supplies, composting tools. Yes, I actually have a composter in my apartment.

This is why I want to share this little gem of green goodness knowledge: I am now completely obsessed with The Natural Store, which is a division of my beloved posting staple, Drugstore.com. We’re talking literally every single good green label in one store where you can hop online, get your shop on and have it delivered to your house without concern or having to schlep. Because schlepping isn’t green, eco-chic or fun, people, especially if you live in a walk-up apartment.

My recent order was all cleaning supplies from amazing companies like Mrs. Meyers, Method, Seventh Generation and Caldrea. They have pet supplies. They have amazing eco-friendly beauty brands like Burt’s Bees, Kiss My Face and my beloved tarte Cosmetics. Vitamins, trash bags and the food! OH, the food! I cannot live without Cherry Pie Lara Bars. I mean this from the bottom of my heart. They have other brands that I love as well: Tazo Tea, Yogi Tea, Kashi, Luna , etc.

So, yep, basically if you want to surround yourself with things that will make your life easier and healthier while reducing your carbon footprint and generally helping the Earth become a better place, I can think of no better shopping excursion than heading to The Natural Store. They say when you know better, you do better. Ok, so now you know about this amazing gem of a store. Do better.

    Thank you for sharing these healthier alternatives in life. I enjoy reading about others who also follow a healthier life style. While keeping the earth a little bit healthier as well. I have chosen to eat and drink an exclusive Vegan and Organic diet a year ago. Purchasing products you spoke of. Which began eight years ago with elimenating certain meats. Then it exculated with all I have learned about.During my own research of what went into our foods and other things that is being made with chemicals. My health problems had also spured me to take control of my own way of healing. Besides a visit to the doctor. Doing natural healing for my back and allergies and a few other ailments. I feel wonderful for have done so. I own and operate Caring Connections Childcare and feed the children a vegetarian diet and use eco friendly products. Teaching a form of Holistic Preschool. Wanting the children and families to have knowledge of alternative ways to live.
