Eco-friendly and sustainable lifestyle blog Eco18.com has re-launched, and in addition to being a leading source of information and tips for living a more eco-friendly and sustainable life, it will now also feature products for purchase from some of the most eco-friendly brands in the U.S. Carefully curated, eco-friendly and sustainable products available on the site include fashion accessories, personal care and baby care products, as well as healthy foods and snacks.
“I first launched Eco18 when I noticed just how much I threw away every day. Just thinking of all the apartment dwellers in New York City doing the same was a wake up call. I decided to re-evaluate my way of life and make some changes. I had already made significant changes to improve my health, making a few more to protect the planet didn’t seem like such a big deal,” said Sue Taggart, founder and editor in chief, Eco18. “Eco18 started out by offering helpful articles to inspire people to live a greener, more sustainable life, and the next step was to take that philosophy even further to offer products to help our readers make those changes too.”
In honor of its own makeover, Eco18 has selected a few products available for purchase on the site to help people get started making-over their own lives in a more eco-friendly and sustainable way:
- Eco18 soap: Eco18 oil based soaps are made by farmers in Montana with 100 percent natural ingredients. Non-GMO, and contain zero synthetic colors, fragrances or preservatives. Six scents available for $6.00USD each.
