There is no denying that global warming is real. I am committed to purchasing environmentally sound products whenever available and affordable to me. Please help those of us who make planet Earth a priority to keep from getting fooled in the supermarket aisles. I also choose green products because I know they are also less harmful to the health of my family, including pets.
One recommendation I have is that if a product claims to be compostable it must be tested as a safe food because people will put that in their home compost bins and then onto their gardens!
Another recommendation: If a product claims to be biodegradable, let's set a standard amount of time for that biodegration to happen.
Thank you for the opportunity,
Emily, big fan of planet Earth
