Shop With Environmental Consciousness

One of my favorite quotations is "You must be the change you want to see in the world." What did Mahatma Gandhi mean? How can we BE the change?

What I think Gandhi meant is that we must make conscious ethical choices in our every day lives. The conscious choices are different for each generation. During the time of Gandhi, peaceful resistance was the choice for his people. Today, we must live, advocate and buy with environmental consciousness.

One of the ways that we may shop with environmental consciousness is to read the product label before we buy; shop locally or online; patronize businesses that use organic ingredients; look for companies that demonstrate their environmental consciousness by using green energy. In the case of bath and body products, seek out companies that have a commitment to both animal rights and consumer safety.

Best Bath Store meets all the criteria for shopping with environmental consciousness. I really love the natural soap bars, with luscious scents such as vanilla, honey milk and lavender. These soap bars are handmade with organic extracts, essential oils, and natural botanicals. You may even try these products before you buy, by ordering up to five free samples! You pay only shipping costs. I just ordered these samples: Lemon-Lime Body Bar, Vanilla Bean Body Bar, Intensive Under Eye Treatment, Acne Facial Bar and Detox Bath Salts.

So, be the change you wish to see in the world and smell wonderful while doing so. Some choices are easy to make!

Reading the product label is always a good idea. I try to frequently do this and sometimes, the ingredients quite actually do surprise me...

I agree, we should do what we can to protect the environment. Our simple choices can create great impact. Keep on influencing others with your blogs..

Most Americans are lazy creatures, we can't even get our of our cars to eat crappy fast food! It's too much work! Reading labels? That's just the! It always amazed me how, most of us take better care of our cars than we do our bodies! Reading labels could save so many of us unnecessary illnesses, unfortunately, so many of us are just too lazy to do it! Sad really!


p.s. I nominated your blog for the Lemonade Award :)
