Welcome to the EcoLiving Guide
This guide has been created to help you make better product choices.
The products we use become part of our indoor air and determine the air quality in our indoor spaces, and the chemicals we and our loved ones breathe in. However, they don’t just stay around us – they can become a part of our water, soil and travel great distances, and even come back to us via our food.
The Eco Living Guide suggests healthier fragrance-free product choices, information on least-toxic ecological ways of living and some do-it-yourself home-made products, which work just as well, and are cost-effective – while being healthy and good for the environment. You can find a wide range of products – from baby and child care, to household, and even renovations.

You care about the environment
Now more than ever we need to understand the relationship between us and our environment. We are a PART of our environment, and we are impacted by what we put into our environment –including our product choices. The same chemicals impacting human health are also implicated in climate change. It is in our hands to make the change we need.
