Every time I visit a big box store, or even a grocery store, I make a beeline for the HBA’s. In retail talk, that’s Health and Beauty Accessories. I look for organic, eco-friendly brands that I can find in other places. I always hope that the one store will have a special little niche that has exactly what I’m looking for- at hopefully decent budget friendly prices. But then I blame Missouri. Not that I should- it can be really great at times. But since we’re literally in the middle of everything, it takes awhile for trends and most brands to make their availability known here if they’re not sold at Walmart. (Thank goodness for Target!).
I feel so lucky to have the availability to ship whatever I want from online sites. Luckily, EcoMom does a heft of work as well- by gathering all those organic, wooden, cloth, natural rubber, and earth happy products and putting them on their site. They’re motto is “We do the research, so you don’t have to.” Unlike a few other green sites that do the same thing, Ecomom has product reviews readily available (you can even volunteer for that). They include upscale make-up for moms, books, kitchen gear, organizing tools, perfect giftsets, and even giftcards! I’ve only ordered a few things so far, as I slowly replace each few plastic toys in our house with something better, but the quality is awesome so I really recommend them. Where do you find green products?
