When it comes to your personal relationship with being green, look to the elements in your life you can control. Nasty little anti-green secrets lie within many of your favorite beauty and hygiene products.
Scientific research has proven that the ingredients in your favorite products can cause: cancer, developmental/ reproductive toxicity, allergies/ immune toxicity, neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, and the list goes on.
