Celebrate Earth Day with #WalgreensOlogy

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser #WalgreensOlogy.

My healthy home is very important to me and I buy the most earth friendliest that I can. Another important factor I look at is cost. Did you know that Walgreens has their own line called Ology that is free to harmful chemicals? Let me tell you about them…I think you will be amazed at what they offer!

Walgreens

I headed to my favorite drugstore this week to grab the products I needed. You won’t just find Ology grouped together in one aisle. They will be spread out in their respectful aisle ~ shampoo with hair, paper towels with paper goods, etc.

The best part was that many of the products were on special with my Balance Reward card. I earned 1000 points which equals $1 on many of my items. I didn’t save at that purchase, but I earned $7 back for the next time I shopped. Not bad!

Walgreens Ology

Mission: Ology believes in avoiding toxic ingredients. Seeking out sustainable raw materials and including natural ingredients. It’s all about leaving behind a healthier, happier world for our children and grandchildren. They are endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World which is an organization dedicated to creating healthy environments for children.

You will find  household cleaners, paper, personal care and baby products!

What you see here is 100% Tree Free paper products. They are made with readily renewable sugarcane husk and bamboo, whitened with H2O2 which is a non-cholorine based bleach, and are biodegradeble.

You know I am mostly a cloth girl, but of course we buy bath tissue. And I even buy paper towels to keep on hand. They aren’t normally my first choice, but are good for certain messes. I always try to make sure I am buying earth friendly and recyclable paper!

When it comes to personal care items I am VERY picky. Just because you don’t eat it doesn’t mean it doesn’t still go in the body. Anything that touches the skin will be absorbed.

Ology products are free from the following 10 harmful chemicals: Ammonia, Chlorine bleach, DEA (diethanolamine), TEA (triethanolamine), Parabens, Phthalates, Formaldehyde, Nonylphenol ethoxylates, Triclosan, SLS, SLES. Plus, Ology does not use artificial dyes or fragrances.

Boost your cleaning from plant based power with Ology Laundry and Cleaning. Again, no harmful chemicals and no animal testing, You can still fight stains and cut through grease with harsh solvents and ammonia. Plus they smell better!

You’ll feel so much better about yourself and your home after using products like these! They are effective, affordable and accessible. Available exclusively at Walgreens.

Celebrate Earth Day and give yourself a gift by checking out the full Ology line!

Stylish. Safe. Smart. Modere

I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Modere I received a promotional item to facilitate my review and to thank me for my participation.

Who is Modere? A company that prides themselves in creating some of the safest products on the market today.

I found Modere last fall when a friend told me their products were right up my alley…eco-friendly and non-toxic. The products range from personal care to household to health and wellness. Not sure why it took me so long to give them a try, but glad I’ve now had the opportunity.

As you know I’m very picky when it comes to my cleaning products and to tell you the truth I don’t really buy many at all. Steam power and vinegar are the top two cleaners in my house, but when it comes to laundy, well I buy only the best.

I’ve never seen anything like Modere’s Laundry Pods before. Three products in one: naturally-derived ingredients for clean clothes, stain boosters, and a light scent of vanilla and lavender. Pods that dissolve easily in hot or cold water! And they are of course natural, non-toxic and hypoallergenic: No harsh chemicals, residues, or chlorine will be found.

 

I also couldn’t wait to test out the Shampoo, Conditioner and Cleanser. What goes on my skin (and in my body!) is even more important then what goes in my wash. And let me tell you that all-natural personal care products are not created equal.

The Combination Skin Cleanser manages oil with an infusion of plant tonics, providing ample moisture. My skin is a bit on the oily side and I like the way this soap makes me feel.

I was ready for a new ‘poo and the Shampoo for All Hair Types doesn’t disappoint. It really does leave your hair feeling soft and natural like it claims and most imporantly lasts where many all-natural shampoos don’t.

Love the Normal/Oily Conditioner. “Packed with nutrients—it’s like the kale of hair products” ha! Powerful conditioner and moisturizing is what I need, especially as my hair gets longer and less manageable.

We have a new bathroom fixture on our countertop. It is as exciting as our new blender in our kitchen. Really it is! It may even be more important when it comes right down to it. It’s full name is the Waterpik Aquarius Professional Water Flosser and let me tell you why we need it.

It is clinically proven up to 50% more effective for improving gum health vs. string floss and proven to remove up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas in 3 seconds.

About a year and half ago we sat down to discuss the beginning of C’Man’s orthodontic treatment plan. He is going to be twelve soon and he is planning on having jaw surgery when he is around fourteen or fifteen to correct his jaw line. Scary stuff! Well it’s not that scary I guess, but there is a lot of planning and procedures we have to do to get there.

In the next few months, he’ll be getting braces. The orthodontist sat him down for a good length of time and explained that flossing is a must. He has to take care of his teeth and all of the dental work that will go into his mouth too. Flossing is extra important when you have braces and actually kind of a pain at the same time since all those metal wires get in the way!

The Waterpik is going to awesome for him!!

Essential for Braces – Clinically proven up to 3X as effective for removing plaque around braces vs. string floss

I’m going to admit to you that this cool device takes a bit of a learning curve…I started laughing so hard the first time I used it because water sprayed everywhere! Even on day 2 and 3 I couldn’t seem to keep the water from soaking everything around me.

Pik in, mouth mostly closed, turn on, clean mouth, turn water off, take out Pik. I had to keep telling myself this over and over…lol. I think I’ve got it down now and let me tell you that this thing REALLY CLEANS! My mouth feels amazing…from just water?!

I even told the kid’s dentist office a couple of weeks ago that we were getting one and they had nothing but rav reviews. Amazon is full of them too. This thing is awesome and happy our life of braces and beyond will go much smoother.
