What do Eco-Friendly and
Sustainable Mean for You?

E verywhere you look today, companies and products are boasting eco-friendly, sustainability, and going green, almost as if those words are interchangeable. But are they? What do they really mean, and what do they mean for you?

Let's begin by defining our terms:


"Eco" is short for "ecology", so if something is eco-friendly, it is not harmful to the environment.

T he environment in this context is generally understood to include the air, water, and land in or on which people, animals, and plants live; in short, everything that sustains life.

S ustainability looks at the long-term effects of creating and using a product. It is the main reason for, and the result of, choosing eco-friendly and green products now. Such as using dryer balls instead of dryer sheets.

L ooking at integrated sustainable development, the United Nations defined it as "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Well said.

So much more than simply choosing a product that is labeled "green," "eco-friendly," or "sustainably-sourced" just because we feel like we should, it is an intentional choice that reflects a deeper desire to be in accord with our environment, ourselves, and with future generations.

How to Tell if a Product is Eco-Friendly

An eco-friendly product is produced with human and environmental safety in mind. It will naturally be non-toxic and will use sustainable and renewable resources. The product will also be produced in such a way as to not disrupt or harm the balance of our ecosystem.

Examine the list of ingredients to see what's inside the product. Also, note what is not in the ingredients list; irritating or harmful ingredients that may include but are certainly not limited to:

  • Sodium lauryl sulfate
  • Sodium percarbonate
  • Sodium polyacrylate

Where ingredient lists are concerned, the shorter the better. And in general, if you can't pronounce the name of the ingredient, it likely isn't natural or healthy for you.
