The pursuit of a more sustainable lifestyle can begin at home with your bath, kitchen, and laundry.  The products you use on a daily basis may contain things that you may not want, but the good news is that there are options.  

As a sustainability consultant, I advise clients to read labels, be aware of the latest product research, and take action on what comes into the house.  Increasing eco awareness can help consumers make more informed decisions and choose products that best fit their specific needs.
 
Ongoing work by the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) and its allies is bringing eco awareness to the consumer and encouraging some of the best selling personal care products on the market to reformulate their products to be safer for human health and the environment. 
 
In a follow-up to a 2008 study, the OCA found greatly reduced carcinogens in some personal care products.  However, a number of other more conventional products continue to have alarmingly high levels of the carcinogen.
 

Home to one third of the earth's trees, the Taiga is the largest land-based biosphere and encircles the globe. Its immense oxygen production literally changes the atmosphere and refreshes the planet. It is this continuous renewal that has shaped Taiga Company's vision to drive similar change in the business world. Taiga Company seeks to be the "oxygen for your business".
