bait and switch…


100% Organic Apple Juice. Apples are a high-maintenance fruit, needing many pesticides to stave off mold, pests, and diseases. The Environmental Working Group found 47 different kinds of pesticides on apples and deemed them one of the dirtiest produce. I’d previous bought organic juices, but they end up being only 30-40% juice. And the 100% juice I‘d found wasn’t organic.Glad I finally found both and it’s in a recyclable glass jar, rather than non-recyclable juice boxes. Source.

Piggy Paint Nail Polish. A natural, eco-friendly nail polish with a non-toxic, hypoallergenic formula. Originally designed for little piggies, they’ve also released a line of more sophisticated colors for piggies of all ages. And it’s easily removed with an eco-friendly, low odor Piggy Paint nail polish remover. My little miss will need a little pedicure for those summer sandals and non-toxic is the only way to go.

Cage free eggs. The crowded, inhuman conditions of the conventional egg industry is the most obvious reason, but most of the eggs currently sold in supermarkets are nutritionally inferior to eggs produced by hens raised on pasture. Testing has found that, compared to official USDA nutrient data for commercial eggs, eggs from hens raised on pasture may contain: less cholesterol, less saturated fat, more vitamin A, more omega-3 fatty acids, more vitamin E and more beta carotene.
