6 Weird Eco-Friendly Products

Pam For Your Shoes
You’ve heard of multi-tasking products for the kitchen, but those usually don’t expand outside the kitchen. Greenfibres edible shoe cream does. With all of the anxiety around chemicals in personal care products and cooking products, you can banish a few anxieties with the cream. Aside from a shoe polish, the product serves as spread for toast or bread, a substitution for cooking oil, hair conditioner and lip balm. Don’t be surprised if your dog starts licking your feet more than the unusual amount he already did.

Pollution-Sensitive Dress
Our clothing is meant to be an expression of ourselves. If you’re an eco-activist, this dress speaks your language. Designed by Stephanie Sandstrom, the dress’ fabric is intertwined with EPA sensors that can interpret the atmosphere it is in. On days when pollution is very bad, the sensors create kinks in the fabric to make the dress look as if it’s just been pulled out of the laundry basket.

Disposable Diapers
This is one of the few products that is actually cheaper in an organic form. If you think about it, the general definition for anything causing pollution is “waste.” Do the math. Babies are unconsciously contributing to our pollution problem, but they don’t have to be. And neither do new moms. Nature Babycare’s diapers are 99 percent compostable and come in disposable or reusable forms.

These are just some of hundreds of unique ways to green your life.

The site for disposable diapers is awful. Not only do they not provide the price of the item you might be interested in, they dont provide an easy route of asking for the prices. You have to order the item before finding out the price. I wont do that. Not in this day of greedy people that will charge extravagant prices. Just saying.

I think eCoffins are a great idea, but the funeral industry makes a huge profit on all the accoutrements and arrangements involved in our final resting place. Interesting about Pam too, although since it is in an aerosol can be hard to use as a lip balm.
