Your Deodorant – Stinky or Sustainable?

The Daily Green has got to be one of my most favorite daily newsletters. Hot topics, timely topics, fun topics – it has it all.  Today’s edition prompted me to write about deodorants! How many people really stop and think that what they are putting on every day to smell good may be really bad (stinky?) for their bodies.  It’s all about raising awareness for a healthier you and adding  one more sustaible, eco friendly practice to your life. As for me?  I have no doubt that this one is important and was not happy that the top natural deodorants they recommend is not the one I switched to. But switch I shall.

Here’s the scoop from The Daily Green: 

The following are the purest of the pure natural deodorants on the market. These roll-ons, sticks and sprays don’t contain parabens, PEGs, synthetic ingredients including hormone-disrupting fragrance and antibacterials, petrochemicals, or aluminum compounds.

Each is third-party certified. Each contains some and/or all organic and sometimes even biodynamic ingredients that are easy to pronounce and easy to understand. And each comes from brands involved with The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.
