Organic Pet Toys: We just can’t leave our pets out of the organic revolution! Sure most of might know organic pet food is available, but did you know you can get organic chew toys? A favorite I’ve found is by Simply Fido. It’s a plush bone that is great for a puppy’s chewing stage or a larger dogs comfort toy. In the case of my dogs, which were more like the “Marley and Me” kind, it helped as a safe alternative to chewing the couch to bits. Simply Fido sites the fact that by adding pets to our organic list in the home, we do that much more for the environment. It adds up. With 43 million households in the U.S. alone owning dogs, it can make a big difference.
Organic Shoes: Shoes seem to be a natural step in going organic, as our feet are the foundation of our bodies and contain insight into our overall health. Mahalo shoes says its organic line gives a more natural way to put one foot in front of the other. When going barefoot might not be a good option, organic shoes are perhaps the next best choice.
Organic Teeth Whitener: Right in your own cupboard are quick, affordable, and easy ways to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening methods can contain lots of chemicals including bleach. Sometimes making decisions under the glaring light of the dentist’s chair with all those sharp instruments nearby is not the best place to decide on what to do with stained, yellowed teeth. A good place to start the decision making process is at home. Baking soda, lemons, and orange rinds rank as a good place to start getting a brighter smile. Other tips are changing a few habits like drinking staining beverages such as coffee and red wine; using a straw; eating more crunchy vegetables; and simply rinsing with water after you’ve indulged in any of those darker drinks. What better way to avoid the dentist chair than taking charge of your health care right in your own home? Then, if you still can’t do without that super-pearly white smile, at least you’ve gone in informed and instilled with a few more healthy, organic lifestyle choices.
