I have never been a follower of bandwagons and rarely crazed over the newest fads but this year, I want to be "in". Why? Because I found something worth going gaga about - Organic products. I want to embrace going organic as much as I could. Of course I'm not going cold turkey on the things I've grown to love and I don't want to go bankrupt either. So my goal? To be able to get the benefits of organic products without leaving me with no other options but to sell my organs to afford it. My first target? Organic hygiene & body care products. After hours of research, I finally found one that suites the description I'm seeking. I did a background check on the company and it looks highly trustworthy. It says there that all ingredients are bought directly from local farmers manufactured with no additives. This I gotta try. I know y9u're asking, why not start by going organic on the inside - meaning food-wise. Well, to be honest, I'm not strong enough to fight that battle yet. And like they say, never engage in a war that you're a hundred percent positive that you're not going to win. And in this case, I'm 110% sure!

I think that's a pretty cool move. What are some of organic foods that are nutritious? Although I can imagine most organic foods are healthy. I've seen milk shampoo and stuff like that. I'm guessing how it will smell like. I think I can adopt some of the organic lifestyle into my life. But not all, because I still need my guilty pleasures.. Congrats for this move...

right now, I'm using seaweed facial wash, cucumber shampoo, and mango butter conditioner among other stuff. Food-wise, not yet ;p

hello posham, I have gotten into a bit of organic before when i was working with a non-profit organization that advocates organic products. all i can say is that it's pretty expensive for the ordinary people, the office that i used to work with no longer exist.

That's what's good about the products I'm using. It's really affordable almost the same as commercial products in the market. Like a 200ml of shampoo cost only Php99.75 (around $2 or so). That's why I'm loving it. And one more reason why I'm supporting this product is because they are trying to provide income to relocated people. The owner of this company is the daughter of Gawad Kalinga founder.

ha ha ha ha ha... you are so right about one thing! That you never engage in a war that you are 100% sure you are going to lose! Organic body care products? As in soap, facial creams, hair oils and stuff like that? Does it really make a difference whether you use them organic or not? I do not know. Cos I get really turned off by their prices. Especially when you have to be a purse pincher in an economy that offers no let up in spirally upward cost of living!
