The Cost of Going Green

by Janice

I admit, I would love to purchase all green products for my home, but I am sometimes turned off by products that seem to be absurdly expensive. I think it is important to use all natural products, especially for my children, but it can be discouraging when I discover the dent it makes to my checkbook.

On 5 Minutes for Going Green, Teensy Greeny interviewed Debby DeOliveira, the founder and creator of the oopsy daisy! line, to try to get to the bottom of the $18.00 price tag for her small bottle of leave in detangler and conditioner.

Hopefully it will help to shed some light on the competitive eco-green market, as you also try to decide how much is too much green for green?

I to like to go organic or green but there always a budget to stay with in.
Hopeful as green movement becomes more popular it will go down in price.

We do our best but we aren’t made of money so some things we just can’t afford.
