Sometimes you really want to do good in the world by buying your products ethically, even if you need to spend a bit more money. But how do you know the products your buying are actually against animal testing and don't include child labour?
With most Toiletries and makeup products that are against animal testing and don't do it they will either say on the back “AGAINST ANIMAL TESTING” or this little picture somewhere on the back.
With child labour free products it can be a little harder to tell if they actually are. The biggest countries that child labour thrives in are usually in Asia and Indonesia. If it says made in China, Phillipins or India it most likely uses child labour. If you live in a country that has really low reports of child labour, any product that says “Made from local ingredients, Assembled in YOUR country.” its most likely not going to have involved child labour. (Unless you live in China)
Is your product kind to the environment? Do not buy bottled water. If you really must. Buy one bottle, and keep reusing that. The way bottled water is made and used is truly terrible for Earth. To find out more click this link. But if you are going to buy something in a plastic bottle check the bottom. You should find a little triangle with a number in it. Numbers 1, 2, 3 and maybe 4 are okay bottles that are safiest to recycle. Numbers 5, 6 and 7 if it even exists are totally bad not matter what. Do not buy products with this. You know those little bags you put your fruit into? They too are terrible for the earth. So are your larger plastic bags. Some supermarkets like New World have eco friendly and reusable bags that you can buy in stead of these plastic bags. Other places like Pak’nSave make it that you have to buy your plastic bags and pack your groceries yourself to discourage using them.
So that's my first kind of Eco friendly post and I hope this encourages you to think twice before you buy. I know it has for me.
