Now more than ever, it is important we use our power as consumers to support companies and products that are good for the planet, socially active, and our good for our health. We cannot trust the current US administration to protect people and planet over corporate profits.
From water protectors to social activists, we are being called upon to move our money from banks and not support companies associated with the current administration and its appointees.
The list is huge, and frankly, inconvenient. For example, this site is supported through the Amazon affiliate program. Do we end this relationship that barely pays our hosting fees because they sell Ivanka Trump shoes? In Amazon’s defense, the CEO Jeff Bezos is not a trump supporter and said he “erodes our democracy around the edges.” Of course, there are other issues with Amazon social and environmental record.https://www.greenbiz.com/blog/2012/12/21/why-amazon-great-not-good
The easiest way to use the power of the purse is to find small companies that use organic, natural ingredients. Many of our favorite organic brands are now owned by large corporations that lobby against our interests for GMO labeling and environmental protections. https://gmo-awareness.com/shopping-list/corporate-organic-brands/
We recently discovered a personal care line the fits our ethos. All Good makes healing, herbal products that are good for the planet and people.
All Good is a lifestyle brand with a clear vision: to live and inspire others to live in balance with nature. We make organic body care products because we want you to feel amazing from the soothing natural benefits of botanical ingredients.
The mission began with Caroline, a massage therapist and outdoor enthusiast who, after working in emergency care on an ambulance, had the vision to create a product that would harness nature’s power to heal. She first developed what was to become All Good Goop healing balm in 1997 on a northern California organic family farm where she lived and worked, initially using her product for herself when rock climbing and farming. Soon she was giving away her balm to family and friends and was humbled by their response. Anyone who tried it raved that All Good Goop was the only thing that helped just about every skin ailment. After giving this magical healing balm away for years, she decided to share it with the world.http://allgoodproducts.com/good-story/

Both of these products are very effective and affordable. The All Good Goop is extremely soothing on my dry winter skin and small patch of eczema. The All Good Lips comes in many lovely shades. It protects your lips from the sun with SPF 18. It is also safe for our coral reefs.
When we choose companies like All Good, we send a message that we support a clean, healthy environment for our families. The growing organic food and natural personal care market is evidence Americans do want protection from chemicals. Please use the power of your wallet to not only protect your own family but the greater environment as well.
