Do eco-friendly products actually make a difference?

“Environmentally friendly,” “eco-friendly” and “earth-friendly” are just different ways of saying “not environmentally harmful.” There are many ways to define “sustainable” and “sustainability,” but in general, sustainable living can be defined as the practice of ensuring we don’t deplete our natural resources by making eco-friendly, ethical choices as consumers.

Do environmentally friendly have a real impact on the world? Undeniably so! While the impact from simply switching to sustainable products and gifts is not enough to fix everything, it’s certainly a good place to start one’s sustainability journey.

Every product we purchase eventually creates waste, but when does a product become waste in its life cycle, what type of waste it becomes, and how often it’s being purchased are the real questions to be answered. The volume of this waste could be decreased with simple everyday actions & choices – choosing the right products with high utility & reusability that have a minimal impact on the environment is the key!

The case for eco-friendly products is that they at the very least increase awareness and provide those who want to change the world with a decent place to start. While every product we purchase eventually creates waste, the real debate is when a product becomes waste and how often we repurchase it. By choosing products with more utility and minimal impact, we can reduce the waste that we create.

Here are some things to keep in mind as you search for sustainable gifts and eco-friendly products:

Ingredients & Materials: Look for products that are made from recycled, compostable and clean materials. This ensures that the products are not harmful to the environment and can be easily disposed of once they are no longer useful. At Verth, we pride ourselves on offering a curated range of personal care products made from clean & sustainable ingredients.
