There are small changes that you can make everyday for the earth. For me as a parent this means being more conscious of products that I bring into my home. That being said I am also always looking for products that are functional. During a recent trip to Walgreens I discovered such a product line with Ology, a unique line that provides products for a healthy home. Free of 10 harmful chemicals (Ammonia, Chlorine bleach, DEA (diethanolamine), TEA (triethanolamine), Parabens, Phthalates, Formaldehyde, Nonylphenol ethoxylates, Triclosan, SLS and SLES), I really appreciated that this line offers families safe items that are also better for the environment as well as paper products that are 100% tree free.
This includes a line of products for the household cleaners, paper, personal care and baby products items that are situated right next to the "traditional" products you have been familiar with for years. In making such a simple switch, all you have to do it simply try them instead of the products that you are used to- it is that easy.
With this simple swap, you will get a range of effective and gentle products that are not only free of 10 harmful chemicals, they also do not contain any artificial dyes or fragrances. Another big bonus for me is that Ology is endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World, an organization and resource that is dedicated to creating healthy environments for children.
At my recent shop to Walgreens, I discovered everyday staples like the Ology Bath Tissue, Ology All Purpose Cleaner, Ology Spring Lavender & Vanilla Detergent, Ology White Pear & Cucumber Shampoo, Ology White Pear & Conditioner, Ology Paper Towels, Ology Cube Facial Tissue, and Ology Oatmeal & Honey Bar Soap. I was so happy to discover that these everyday products that so actually safe, affordable, and are readily-available with a listing of 'no harmful chemicals' clearly labeled throughout their packaging.
The product that I use all the time is their All-Purpose Cleaner. With daily clean-ups of food (which is often on the food), I love how it gently cuts through grease and grime without containing any harsh solvents or ammonia. Another favorite is the Ology Household Paper Products (specifically the toilet paper and paper towels) that are ultra-absorbent, made 100% tree-free materials, biodegradable and septic safe - all of which you can't say for many brands out there.
Another favorite is the Ology Hair line featuring the Ology White Pear & Cucumber Shampoo and the Ology White Pear & Conditioner. This plant-based line has no parabens or sulfates as it works to nourish and treat the hair. I also love the light scent where I clearly noticed the difference from the heavily fragranced brands I have tried in the past.

The simplest way to make a changes for the Earth and your family is to a little each day. For me that means becoming a conscious consumer where I have been adding products such as Ology that are effective, affordable and chemical-free - making it so easy to make the switch this Earth Day and everyday.
