Go-To Green: Hot Items for the Eco-Chic

BY AMANDA BLOYE, FW Writer

With the disaster of global warming weighing
heavily on our consciences, many companies are
beginning to deem themselves as environmentally
safe. Many of these companies offer products
like shampoos, automobiles, food and even
cooking appliances as friend not foe to the
environment. Here are a few products not only
discovered by the FW staff to be 100% ecofriendly
but hot enough to be deemed our go-to
green products.
Green Beaver’s
Apple Mint Shampoo, Conditioner, Washes and
Lotions

With a desire for environmental and familial
safety as their top priority, the Green Beaver
Company has introduced a line of organic
shampoos, conditioners and body washes in
scents guaranteed to entice. The products
are made from organically grown Canadian
materials and available in scents such as “Wild
P.E.I Cranberries, Apple Mint from Nova Scotia’s
Annapolis Valley and Wildcrafted Lavender from
B.C.”

Green Beaver’s describes their plan to use wild
and organic Canadian ingredients as beneficial
to both their customers and the environment.
By “reducing the amount of pesticides being
poured onto our land and environment” and
“cutting down local pollution”, Green Beaver is
doing their part to make Canada a cleaner, safer
place. For more information on all of Green

Pangea Organics
Pangea Organics is an “ecocentric body care”
company specializing in creating products that
are “always beneficial [and] never artificial”. Not
only are their products such as cleansers, toners,
soaps and shower gels organic and eco-friendly,
but the company is working to help revolutionize
the packaging industry with their “product
boxes made using a Zero Waste process with
100% post-consumer paper and organic seeds.”
Once you’ve opened your product, the box can
be soaked in water for a minute and planted in
the earth. Products we like are their Japanese
Matcha Tea masks, sold $35 per bottle, and
their essential oils, which are sold for $25 per
bottle.For information on the Pangea Institute,

bath and body companies. With over
700 products under its belt, The Body Shop

One product we love is the exfoliating skin

looking healthy and smooth. The sponge works
to scrub the skin and remove the dead skin cells
and stimulate blood circulation for an all-over
glow. For more information on this product and
