Wow, I can’t believe it’s already that time of the year again! Have you started your Christmas shopping, or are you the one who had all of your gifts purchased months ago? If you’re like me, I’m still shopping. It seems like I do it later and later each year.
If you’re still in need of some gift ideas, I wanted to share with you a few non-toxic gift suggestions. These gifts provide some healthy and unique options for everyday needs along with some educational opportunities. I also want to remind you that there are some great organizations who have certified products to be non-toxic. One of those organizations is MADE SAFE. MADE SAFE “screens ingredients against a Toxicant Database of known harmful chemicals.” They also examine ingredients for bioaccumulation, persistence, and general and aquatic toxicity.
