Reducing and eliminating our toxin intake has been a huge focus of our personal mission aboard Glorya Marie, as well as an outward mission we wish to spread with the world. When we all take daily measures to use the healthiest and most sustainable (often the most simple) products in our lives, we are working for a healthier population with higher potential and a less polluted planet earth.
Goals for house hold Cleaning Agents and Personal Care Products in a Minimal and Eco-Friendly Home:
>Be Environmentally Safe
>Have Multiple Uses
>Be Safe for Consumption ( A rule of thumb – don’t put anything on your skin you can’t put in your mouth )
