I dream that we will no longer sell Junk- chips and Lollies in hospital waiting rooms. I dream that my children will not be offered soft drink at every sporting event. I dream that everyone will think twice about using personal products laden with chemcials on their skin. I dream that toxic chemicals will need to be proven safe before being sold. I dream that Organic food will be called food and the pesticide food will be labelled accordingly.I dream babies won’t have in excess of 200 chemicals in their umbilical chord blood when born. I could go on but I think you get the idea. This is something that I can’t let go of. Once you have the knowledge it is hard to ignore. Please educate yourself, clean out your cupboards, take it all to the tip and ask how to safely dispose of it. Once you change, you will not look back. Your health will thank you for it.
Sometimes this is overwhelming and I certainly felt that way but I recommend replacing one thing at a time. Make the best choice everytime you buy. Remember you are voting with your dollar!
Unfortunately the big supermarkets don’t care about our health. You will need to look else where. I am not saying don’t shop there at all. All fruit and veg is better than No fruit and veg but always search for the best option.
Here are a list of some of my favourite online stores/apps/shops that are doing their bit to make the world a better place.
Nourished Life Online store for make-up and personal products
Bulk Wholefoods Online store for ordering organic and pesticide free wholefoods, personal care products too. Australia wide delivery.
Chemical Maze This is an App which lets you see what additives, preservatives and chemicals are in your food and personal products and cleaners. Search by name and number. This has been a great educational tool when shopping with my kids.
Think Dirty This is a free App. Scan barcoded products to check for ingredients. Not all Australian products are on here but they are adding more all the time.
The Food garden if you live in Central Victoria consider having a seasonal fruit and veg box delivered to your home. They are now donating half their profits to local farmers to encourage organic farming! How good is that.
Young Living essentail Oils No pesticides used in the growing of the plants used to produce their oils. They can effectively and safely be used to clean your home and replace many other products. Young Living thieves household cleaner is the best product I have ever used to clean my bathroom and benches. They have a range of personal care products from shampoos to deoderants and a kids range too. If this is something you are interested in please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0433589675 to discuss how I can help you.
Biome Fabulous online store with the best lunch boxes around. Natural cleaning products and all things eco.
Daylesford Health food and Organics a drive up the road from Ballarat, but a great selection and great prices. Also makes for a great lunch stop.
If I can encourage you to make a better choice that will be my reality, no longer a dream.
