What does it mean to be eco friendly? It means choosing natural products to use during your life. It is not only good for the environment, living an eco friendly life is also good for your health.

When is the best time to start living this way? Now! If you start slowly, eventually you will have a lifestyle change that you will enjoy and feel good about.

Decide to reduce the amount of products you’re using that are harmful to the environment. Look at what you can reuse instead of throw away. Start recycling if you aren’t already. Join “green” organizations that put the environment as their focus. Finally, choose eco friendly products. One area to focus on is the bathroom.

Bamboo

Bamboo is a good product to choose for an eco friendly life, because it is cultivated with no pesticides or chemicals. It requires only natural rainfall, which means that water does not have to be piped in. Bamboo is highly renewable. When a cane is cut, it grows up to 12 inches a day. In addition, material made from Bamboo is good for people with skin conditions, because it has a natural antibacterial component. Bamboo rayon is used in bathrobes and towels. The result is a soft, high quality towel or bathrobe.

Organic towels

Look for organic towels made from 100 percent organic cotton. Cotton that is not grown organically is grown with pesticides that are damaging to the soil, air and water.

Soap, shampoo and conditioner

Take a look at the soap, shampoo and conditioner you’re using. Are they eco friendly? Many of these cleaning agents contain harmful chemicals that can be irritating to the skin and harmful to the environment. Instead, choose soaps, shampoos and conditioners made from plants or vegetable oils. Look for homemade products.

Organic Towels

As our world evolves, the environment has become one of the number one concerns of its human inhabitants. These days you can buy eco friendly shopping bags, clothing, cleaning supplies, cosmetics, bath towels and more. Eco friendly bath towels have become more and more popular as a way to dry wet bodies and relax in comfort, but still be kind to the environment.

What is an eco friendly bath towel? It’s a towel made without the harmful chemicals used in standard towels. They are products made from fibers raised without pesticides and artificial fertilizers. Certified combed organic cotton towels are a good example of such products.

When washing these towels, make sure to stick to an eco friendly washing routine, as well. There are various organic laundry detergents available on the markets that are free of harmful chemicals. Do not use fabric softeners or bleaches. And consider removing your towels from the washing machine, shaking them and then hanging them to dry under the sun. If not, stick your towels in the dryer on a low setting.

I have always been fascinated by colors and am totally in my element whenever I’m in a paint or crafts shop where hundreds of hues are displayed for my enjoyment. It wasn’t, however, until I started shopping for luxury towels and bathrobes that I realized I could provide a fix for my color addiction in my very own bathroom.

Quality bath towels and hand towels were on top of my list of must-buys, and I was simply stunned at the number of colors that towels are available in today. Egyptian cotton towels, for instance, come in no less than eight different colors ranging from the fairly predictable white and cream to the excitingly new espresso, meadow, rosebud and air blue. Supima towels, on the other hand, which are made of American Superior Pima cotton, come in such intriguing shades as bisque, merlot and tarragon while organic towels – 100% eco friendly – come in, among other colors, green tea, Aegean blue, coffee and stone. Bath mats were next on the list, and, when I looked at the luxurious Bamboo bath mats, I had a hard time choosing between the mat in adorable aloe, the tubmat in calming cloud and the bath mat in soft sandstone.

The world of bath robes also opened up a world of colors for me, and I was totally in my element exploring the different robe brands and their cleverly creative colors. The Terry kimono robes, for instance, came in sparkling white while the Waffle bathrobe was available in a beautiful shade of beige. The Ultra Soft cotton / bamboo bathrobes, on the other hand, dazzle the eye in coffee and the interesting shade of light blue that’s known as rain, and kids robes – possibly the most fun of them all – are pretty in pink and wonderful in white.

The fact that most of these Turkish bathrobes/towels and pure cotton bath mats are machine washable, of excellent quality and can even sport a monogram will – strangely – always be less important to me than the fact that they come in such gorgeous colors.
