AGROINDUSTRY SNEAKS INTO NATURAL PRODUCTS

AGROINDUSTRY SNEAKS INTO NATURAL PRODUCTS

If you are currently using Castille Soap, Baking Soda, Borax, White Vinegar, Essential Oils, Charcoal, and plant based items your are shopping non-toxic right?

Weeeell, not exactly. If it uses toxic ingredients, or makes toxic by-products in production, it’s toxic.

Mono-crops, imports, agroindustrial ingredients, petrochemical-reliant products and items with hidden animal ingredients abound under the guise of eco, green, natural and non-toxic. We need to at least discuss the eco-credentials of:

  • Lye/Soap— one of the two core factories for all the soap produced in the USA is in Louisiana’s ‘cancer alley’, where there are a cluster of brain tumors among workers. Every soap bar in America is made using factory made chemicals.
  • ‘Natural’ Boar hair brushes that rely on the carbon polluting and cruel meat industry.
  • Petroleum-based white cleaning vinegar. This stuff isn’t plant-based at all, so you might be better off buying something cheaper that actually is.
  • What do we know about Baking soda, Colloidal oatmeal, Activated charcoal, Cornstarch/rice starch, etc, etc, etc? These staples of modern life are often born and produced from the petrochemical industry and other questionable sources.
