The List.

I am constantly asked: "what do YOU use, Erin?" So I have finally decided to create a list of what I use and love… category by category, item by item. These are my picks for the best of the best in eco and ethical living. This is not what I am "supposed" to tell you I like, this is what I honestly have with me, on me, at my home, in my suitcase all the time. REALLY TRULY. Everything below passes my test for excellence in safety, sustainability, and efficacy. It works; I promise. This is by no means a comprehensive list (it's rather stream-of-consciousness), so if you are curious about a specific product or alternative, please just ask! I hope this helps in your journey from conventional to conscious.

 

And we are always updating Erin's Pinterest board with visuals as well!
