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.
