Let's Go Organic: Every Day
Organic options are in just about every category of our everyday items. Let's take a look at areas you can buy organic!
This is the easiest section to choose organic, as the options are unlimited! From organic Cheetos to Organic Newman's salad dressing, you can have an entire meal made up of organic ingredients. Buying organic produce is the best and easiest way to support your local farmers. Be supportive of those farmers who are making the change from conventional to organic by purchasing their transitional organic produce. The more farms that are making this change will lead to more organic options. It's a win-win!

(Organic Cotton Sheets by Pact)
If you're anything like me, getting those 8 hours of sleep is literally so dreamy. When I get into bed, I want to be as cozy as a bug in a rug. So purchasing organic sheets makes total sense. If you don't like wearing those cheap "throw-away" T-shirts, doesn't it make sense to have sheets that are made out of organic goodness? Bonus Points: Find sheets that have Modal to make them super soft! That's the secret ingredient in our tri-blend tees!
My nephew's favorite shirts are literally Allmade, I'm not even kidding you. They wear them to school, baseball practice, and while running around San Diego. When I told them that our shirts have organic cotton and 6 recycled water bottles in them, their little brains couldn't handle it. They just loved them for their softness, let alone what makes Allmade so cool.
We know there are a lot of organic apparel options out there, and a lot of companies make full head-to-toe options, so find a brand that is transparent and honest, and together we can make better purchases for our planet.
(RMS models looking beautiful with their organic make-up!)
When I heard the story of how RMS was founded, it changed the way I looked at what I put on my face & body. Rose-Marie Swift was a professional makeup artist and had been breathing in toxic fumes for decades as she did makeup for all the catwalks. She is the pioneer of the clean beauty movement and makes products that everyone can feel beautiful wearing. They never test on animals and all of her products are free of parabens, gluten, synthetic fragrances, GMOs, sulfate, pthalates, and talc.

This category gets overlooked when it shouldn't. Paper towels, toilet paper, and tissue production cause deforestation and chemical pollution in our waterways. Since they are made for single use, they then fill up our landfills. This is an easy category to go organic and help make a difference.
Grove Collaborative has lots of tree-free household paper options to choose from. Who Gives A Crap has great options as well, along with giving 50% of profits are donated to clean water and sanitation projects. Marley's Monsters makes reusable UNpaper towels and face rounds that I just love!
Want to take it to the next level? Omit the paper products on your bum and get a bidet! There are lots of options these days.
