Why do we need more eco friendly products
What are eco-friendly products? Let’s understand the definition first.
‘Eco-friendly means earth-friendly or not harmful to the environment. This term most commonly refers to products that contribute to green living or practices that help conserve resources like water and energy. Eco-friendly products prevent contributions to air, water and land pollution. They also are a better choice for our body because they are made out of materials that are natural and are provided to us by nature in abundance’
Now that we know what the term means, let’s learn a bit more about the benefits of eco-friendly production, processes and the product.
Eco friendly products typically use less energy during their production. A product can in fact only be truly earth friendly when the whole manufacturing process is structured in a way that every step uses renewable and natural sources of energy like solar or wind and saves electricity by using energy saving devices. The reason why organic materials are considered eco-friendly is also because their production uses less energy and saves a lot of water.
Eco friendly products are usually made of materials that come from the earth and can easily decompose back in the soil when discarded. Today most non eco-friendly products use materials that are made out of fossil fuels like polyester, plastic because they it is really inexpensive to produce. But with innovation and technological advancements organizations are now figuring out different ways to recycle these materials and reuse them. Whenever you buy any product always look for a label behind the package to find out the material it’s made of.
When a product is made keeping planet in mind it does not end with just the product but also the packaging of the product is made in a way that is environmentally friendly and can easily biodegrade when thrown away. You will often see products packaged in paper, cloth, discarded materials or anything that is not harmful like plastic and is reusable.
Eco friendly products are made from natural ingredients and conscious materials that are healthy for our mind and body. Plastic by nature is a toxic substance that is man-made and can cause harm to our health. Nature has healing properties and anything that is derived from nature without harming it is beneficial for our health and the society.

Any product that can easily decompose and degrade in our environment in a short span of time and can get mixed in the soil easily is considered to be eco-friendly. Whenever you choose to use a product that is not planet friendly, remember that all those products will remain on this planet for 1000s of years because they do not have the ability to decompose easily and naturally in the soil. Plastic waste problem is a major issue in our world right now and it can only be solved when each one us refuses to buy anything that is made out of plastic and only invests in eco-friendly products.
The above reasons clearly indicate why we need more eco-friendly products. As a consumer it’s our duty to support brands and organizations that are innovating and creating products that don’t harm the environment. Choosing eco-friendly products and living a sustainable lifestyle is no more a choice but a habit we need to inculcate for our own survival, healthy living, and for providing a better world to our future generation.
