Reusable Products, Safe Organic Household Cleaners, and Natural Beauty Products: 50 Reasons to Buy from Chartreuse


Have you ever heard of the term "greenwashing"? Greenwashing, put simply, is when a company changes one small thing about their business so that they can be labeled "green," or "environmentally friendly." So many businesses are hopping on this bandwagon that it makes it very difficult to discern the legitimately eco friendly companies from the fakes. So what should you do to try and find those companies?

A company that is using eco friendly ingredients in their products won't hide what they put in it. If fact, they'll scream it, because they'll want you to know. Chartreuse does just that. Items like the ammonia free natural glass cleaner and organic shea butter have every ingredient proudly listed right on the label, and on the website.

So before you believe the eco themed packaging of other companies, always take a look at the backside of the product. If you don't recognize the ingredient, that's a good sign that maybe you should put the product back down. Often times, these "eco upgrades" won't work as well as the original version! Even worse, the ingredients that they replace can be just as bad as the ones they took out.

If you're looking for more reasons to buy from Chartreuse, you can read this to find 50 ways to go green with this eco friendly company. You'll get an idea of what the company is all about, what green things they practice, and what organic and reusable products they carry.
