I have seen EcoStore all over the internet lately! Of course, seeing them made me want to get to know more about them. I am so glad that I visited their site!
I don't know about you, but I'm not that great when it comes to being "green". I try to do my small part; recycling, turning off lights when I leave a room, not running the faucet when I brush my teeth, and small things like that.
Here's a bit about EcoStore. Their slogan is No Nasty Chemicals™ That means "All of our products are made from plant- and mineral-based ingredients, free of toxic chemicals that bring people closer to nature with non-toxic, environmentally safe solutions that also help to reduce our carbon footprint." They explain how certain toxins in our everyday products can affect our health. Click No Nasty Chemicals™ to learn more.
I don't typically think about the products I use on a daily basis as being an option of "going green". When I got in touch with EcoStore, I was given the option of choosing 2 products to try out. I wanted to try products from 2 different categories so I picked:
1) Citrus Spray Cleaner
This was a nice cleaner for my bathroom. I'm so glad I don't have to leave the room because of the overwhelming chemical smell. It cleaned as well as I expected. I think when you're not used to eco-friendly products, you have to learn how they will perform differently. It took a bit more spraying (not a lot) to get up some stuck on "stuff" from the counter. Patience is not one of my virtues and had I waited even a couple of minutes, it would've come up just fine.
I used it on my mirror in the bathroom and it did great. I have to get decent paper towels. I tend to go cheap and that shows with the paper towels. Anyone have an alternative to paper towels that doesn't leave streaks on mirrors?
2) Rosemary Orange Shampoo
You know, I'm glad I was able to try these out to be the guinea pig. I get to help you save money! Here's how I'll be helping you do that if you purchase the Shampoo...you only need a little bit!
I treated it like it was my regular shampoo, getting a nice handful. Then, when I didn't get a huge lather, I added more. I'm sure if you're not as eco-ly challenged as me, you're probably groaning right now. I learned I didn't need that much. Because the Rosemary Orange Shampoo contains eco-friendly ingredients, you don't need as much. There aren't artificial ingredients to cause all the foaming. That should've been my first realization!
After I washed my hair, I loved the results. I could actually hear the squeak when I brushed through it! It was so awesome!!! Now, let me give you some advice if you purchase the Rosemary Orange Shampoo, because there aren't fillers or bad ingredients, it's not as easy to work through your hair. All you need to do is brush your hair before your shower. Then it's a breeze! I will be buying the conditioner to go along with the shampoo!
