How do you start to lead a more green lifestyle?
The easiest way to start is by going to your local organic market. Typically by buying anything off the shelf in these stores, you are getting an environmentally friendly product. Most natural food stores pick only quality products and if you have any questions about ingredients or options the sales clerks always seem happy to help.
Visiting farmers markets or store that sell local produce is also a good strategy for finding natural food made by sustainable farms. Even better if they tout they are organically grown. Organic products, as well as sustainable farms, are definitely beginning to be a trend in the United States, especially in major cities and places that are health conscious. Keep your eyes and ears open and you will find products that are good for you and the environment.
Although there are human hair wigs available from such manufacturers as Raquel Welch, Estetica, Envy Wigs, among others, I know the alternative hair industry has not fully embraced the concept of the green life style. Although there are 100% Remy human hair wigs available. Most human hair wigs have been treated chemically, striping away the natural hair shade and then dying to achieve other colors. However, there are organic hair products for wigs such as organic conditioners, shampoo, or sprays that creates luster and softness with such natural ingredients as olive oil, Tea Tree and vital nutrients.
Other segments of the green lifestyle consumer market place included clothing made of organic natural fibers. There are many land based as well as online stores offering such products for men, women, and children. The fibers in green lifestyle clothing range from organic cotton, to hemp, and bamboo that often use low impact garment dye. We have always had many natural fibers including linen, wool, silk, angora, cashmere,although the most sustainable, affordable, stylish, plant-based fabrics that are readily available solutions for mainstream buyers are hemp, bamboo, and cotton. One of the great things about eco-clothing is that most of these small niche brands offer natural, fashionable, and super comfortable clothing. Not all are reasonable priced, but many are. They are trailblazing a new eco-frontier.
As more people and industries climb on the green lifestyle band wagon, we will see an even larger cultural shift to local, organic, non-GMO produce, recycling, the installation of solar panels on more homes and building roofs, to more availability and more affordable electric cars. The trickle will slowly build, but every one needs to do their part.
If more people around the world did their part, we could take some very serious steps in the right direction but what are the chances of that happening any time soon?
