Especially if you’re looking for those that come with an eco-friendly stamp of approval and you want to avoid greenwashing tricks.
So it would be remiss for Green Matters if we did not draw attention to products that come with a legitimate green endorsement.
Thanks to two stories recently published in the Vancouver Sun, some of the frustration can be taken out of that search.
First, there is a lengthy list, with descriptions, of some must-have items to satisfy even the most diehard enviro urges.
And complementing that is an article with an extensive inventory of environmentally-friendly, organic pesticides that use natural, non-toxic ingredients to treat garden pests and diseases.
It’s obvious that no longer are people simply asking for something that kills. They want something that is safe, natural and organic.
How times have changed.
