Why is Being Eco-Friendly So Expensive?

So, I have a problem. A huge one in fact. It’s difficult to be eco-friendly, especially when a harsh, chemical laden product costs a fraction of that environmentally friendly product you’d much rather buy. Governments need to step in to do something about this for change to happen on a mass scale. Ban plastic bags in supermarkets flat out. Provide more support for green initiatives and enforce tougher laws. I’m not knowledgeable in the politics of such matters, so I’m going to shut my mouth here. But what I do know is that as human beings, innovation runs in our blood. I’m positive that we will be able to come up with a good solution after we take away these first world ‘needs’.

Why I’m a Huge Fan of iHerb

As some of you may already know, I’m a huge fan of iHerb. The article where I showcase my favourite products is perpetually within the top five posts on my blog. This might also have to do with their awesome, customer-focussed referral and reward system.

To begin with, iHerb offers a 10% rewards credit to both the referrer and referred for the first time. Everyone with an account has their own special referral code. Subsequently, you can continue to earn 5% reward credits whenever someone purchases something from iHerb using your referral code, and vice versa. I get emails every couple of days updating me on my latest cash rewards.

This adds up over time, and now it’s an ongoing top up kind of thing. I can finally buy greener products for my household, for my body, and for the environment. I can buy drain uncloggers that use biological enzymes, instead of toxic chemicals. I can afford laundry detergent and cleaning products with more natural ingredients. My regular shower gel and soaps are mostly ‘free from’ and are all from iHerb as well. Probiotics and vitamins can cost quite a bit but I ‘buy’ them for free, using my iHerb credits.

Get Started Now

I would highly recommend using iHerb if you aren’t already; their reward system is probably one of the best out there. They also have an impressive range of supplements, pantry supplies, household products, and more. Do a search to find what you need. Treat your body and the environment right by finding a healthier, more eco-friendly alternative here.

    I also find eco friendly products in the UK are generally far more expensive, so every little helps with finding ways to save. iHerb sounds like a great choice with a good variety in terms of their product line, and I’m often tempted by rewards schemes (or freebies, I’m a sucker for those too! ?) xx

      Exactly…the irony of it all :p Yes reward schemes aren’t always ‘real’ rewards, but in this case, it really is! 🙂
