Online shopping has had an incredible growth within the past few years.  Many of us simply do not have the time to go into town to search for the best products, or even the energy to go to the store to purchase the products we already love.  A lot of the times, we pass up the better and healthier products because of the inconvenience that comes along with having to go out and buy them.  The main factor, however, that has popularized online shopping so much is the convenience and effortlessness that it provides us as consumers.  Shopping online versus in an actual store is not only easier, but it also supplies us with an endless assortment of products to choose from, accompanied by the information we need about those products.  When we think of online shopping, organic products and foods are usually the first things that come to mind.  However, there are sites that carry these types of products that are available to us.

            Grocery shopping might seem like more of a hassle than other types of shopping, and all of the different brands of products are overwhelming.  There is a website called Eat It, however, that makes grocery shopping for organic and eco friendly products much more enjoyable to those who don’t particularly love it.  All you need to do is open their website, browse their assortment of produce, dairy products, appliances, health and beauty products, homeopathy etc… fill your virtual shopping cart and place your order.  What’s also great about Eat It, is that you don’t need to apply for a membership or any sort.  You simply shop, and the foods and goods that you purchased get delivered right to your door.

            Natural-e Green, a Canadian online shopping site similar to Eat It, focuses more on health and wellness rather than foods.  On this site you can shop for natural and organic vitamins, herbal remedies, herbal supplements, bath and body as well as baby care products.   What sets this site apart from other similar eco shopping sites is that on top of the supplements and body products, they also sell natural crystal gemstone jewelry, that have been used for many years to treat anxiety, diabetes and stomach disorders. 

 

            If you’re looking to shop online for clothes, rather than food, there are a few sites to consider.  First, Not Just Pretty .com sells modern and stylish, organic clothing from Victoria, BC.  Every item is designed by international designers and is made from sustainable fibers. Second, Still Eagle .com similarly sells fashionably clothing made from organic, fair trade and eco friendly natural fibers.  They also sell stylish accessories as well as artwork.
