Welcome to Erin’s Eco List. My name is Erin Singh, I am an eco friendly product blogger and offer eco shopping advice about eco products which I have found, in the best of my knowledge, to be of high quality and why I feel they would benefit you.
I’ve come across many products online which have been advertised to being eco friendly when in truth they are far from that fact.
My endeavour is to save you time by ferreting out the companies who walk the talk, so to speak, and give you advice on which eco friendly products may be beneficial to you.
What to Ask Before Buying:
- Is there a full ingredients list?
- Are the ingredients listed written in simple terms and is there a glossary of their meanings?
- Are these ingredients safe for me to consume or safe to use on my skin?
- Are the products stored in safe, BPA free eco friendly packaging?
- What type of dyes are used to color clothing? Are they made with vegetable/plant or soy based dyes?
- Has the furniture or wooden toys been naturally oiled or painted with non-toxic dyes?
- Are the glues used to bind products non-toxic?
- Is the product easy to assemble; such as furniture etc?
- Can I buy spare parts from the company without having to throw away the entire product? This question would apply to products such as blenders etc.
- Can the product be used for more than one purpose? Buying an item which is multi-functional will save you money. A clutter free home will bring you peace of mind.
These are just some of the questions I ask businesses when contacting them for information.
Asking questions before buying will save you time, money and save you the hassle of sending the product back to the company for a refund if it doesn’t meet your expectations.
For some people, the thought of writing e-mails to companies for information can seem overwhelming. If you have a tight schedule or feel frazzled over what products you should buy, I can help you. My quest is to find the best eco friendly products on today’s World market; testing them where possible before writing my reviews about them.
