Eco-Vegan hair care in an aluminum container!

You may have read my post last week about the importance of avoiding plastic bottles. After seeing the documentary Tapped I went home and started recycling all my plastic containers. Then I walked into my bathroom and realized almost all of my body products were in plastic, and I felt defeated. Luckily, I found an answer to the problem at Natural Products Expo West.

There were a lot of natural and vegan body products at the Expo, but Eco Nature Care was offering something really different: biodegradable hair and body wash in an aluminum container. Their signage read, "a plastic bottle is a terrible thing to waste" - I couldn't agree more. I also liked that they combine hair and body wash in one container - saves an unneeded bottle (and equals less clutter in your shower) - and they also have a conditioner. The bottle is entirely made from aluminum, so you don't have separate or sort when recycling, not to mention no loss in performance or downcycling. In fact, they're even thinking of offering a refill program.

Their products are completely vegan (even gluten free) and don't contain parabens, petroleum, sulfates, about hitting all the marks!

I've used the Crisp hair and body wash twice and didn't notice a different from my other shampoos, which is a good thing. It doesn't have much of a scent, which some people might prefer - your hair will just smell clean. I'm very happy with this product and encourage you to try it out. Unfortunately right now it's hard to get, so you'll have to order it online, but hopefully it will be in your local natural grocer soon!
