Making the switch to natural products can change our lives – as a species and as individuals - in a range of positive ways. All too often in our modern world, there is a disconnect between nature and humanity. More and more of us are becoming aware of the huge problems this has caused and are seeking out ways to make a positive difference. Using all-natural products for skincare and household cleaning is one step in the right direction.
Making our own soaps, cleaners and other natural products is one great way to move to a more sustainable way of life. But life can be busy, and sometimes we need a helping hand. That is where Roses Natural range of products comes in. Whether you make your natural products, or buy from us, you can be part of positive change. Here are 4 ways of using natural products and how it can change our lives:
Helps Combat Climate Change
More and more people around the world are seeing first-hand the impact of our planet's changing climate. From wildfires and droughts to flooding and extreme weather events – climate change is a real and pressing problem that demands an immediate response. Synthetic products often come at a higher carbon cost than natural ones. So, making the switch can help us reduce our carbon footprints. They can help us cut the greenhouse gases, contributors to climate change, that are released in our names.
Helps Protects Humanity
Of course, whether we personally see it or not, people are dying every day due to climate change. But synthetic products do not only release greenhouse gases during manufacture, but they can also cause other forms of environmental pollution. Toxins end up in the wider environment, and these can affect workers, and other people who live nearby. Changing the way we live and switching your dish soap and hand soap is one way to help us tackle the existential threats to humanity as a whole.
Helps Protect Wildlife
Unfortunately, human being’s actions not only affect us, but also the other animals who share our planet. Often, the toxins and harmful chemicals contained in synthetic cleaning products leach into our waterways and onto our land. These substances can often harm or even kill the precious wildlife. This is not only an ethical concern – we also rely on a wide range of wildlife to support our food production and, basically, keep us alive. We are losing biodiversity at an alarming rate. Choosing natural laundry soap helps us ensure we are not hastening that loss.
Helps Protect Our Oceans & Land
Everything in the natural world is connected. When we threaten one part of an ecosystem by using harmful synthetic products, we threaten the whole. Even a small amount of a synthetic product sent down the drain could potentially have knock on effects and threaten our oceans and land on a massive scale. Choosing natural products, without harmful substances, means we are helping to protect the precious oceans and land on which we depend.
