Leading a more eco-friendly lifestyle isn’t limited to what you put into your body and what you put on your body. Actually, becoming truly eco-friendly means that you attempt to use all types of alternative products that will make less of an impact on the environment. Take your cleaning products, for example. Most people have a cabinet at home filled with products for cleaning kitchens, bathrooms, floors, bedrooms and more. That adds up to a plethora of products, many of which contain harmful ingredients. Typically, these ingredients are not only bad for your health, but they are also toxic to the environment.
As an environmental 501 c3 organization, The Gaia Movement USA is dedicated to public education of important environmental issues. We want to address many issues that affect the environment and we focus on problems like global warming, climate change, textile waste and more. We understand that making small changes, like switching to eco-friendly cleaning products, can make a lasting impact on the environment. Thus, our employees and volunteers are constantly researching new eco-friendly products on the market and constantly encourage the public to switch over to products that are less toxic to the environment.
