Living longer through sustainability
GUEST ARTICLE EL GREEN MALL
Guest Article El Green Mall The older we get, the more we worry about our health and well-being. We want to remain active and independent for as long as possible and are therefore constantly looking for ways to improve our quality of life. One way to do this is to adopt a sustainable lifestyle, which has critical benefits for our health.
Healthier aging through sustainable products (subheadline)
Sustainable products can help slow the aging process in several ways. Most are made from natural and organic materials that are gentler on the skin and can reduce the risk of allergic reactions and other health problems. This allows natural skin care products to provide nutrients and moisture to the skin without the harmful chemicals found in conventional products.
1. free from chemicals and parabens
Parabens are synthetic preservatives commonly used in cosmetics to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi. However, they are associated with hormone imbalances that can lead to health problems such as reproductive problems, breast cancer and skin irritation. Chemical-free makeup, on the other hand, does not contain synthetic chemicals that can be harmful to our health. Instead, natural ingredients such as plant extracts, minerals and oils are used, which can provide a range of benefits for the skin.
2. sustainable textiles
In addition to skin care and beauty products, unsustainable clothing can also affect our health in a number of ways. Many conventional textiles are made from synthetic fibers derived from petroleum chemicals that can release toxic chemicals during manufacturing, washing and disposal. These chemicals contribute to air and water pollution and can cause skin irritation and respiratory problems. In addition, many unsustainable garments are treated with chemicals such as formaldehyde and flame retardants to improve durability and safety. However, these chemicals can be harmful and have been linked to a number of health problems, including cancer, reproductive problems and neurological disorders.
3. environmentally friendly production methods
Sustainable products often use environmentally friendly production methods that reduce exposure to toxins and other harmful substances. This is especially important as we get older, as toxins can accumulate in the body and contribute to chronic health problems.
4. clean water
Many conventional products contain chemicals such as phosphates, sulfates and chlorine that can be harmful to aquatic life and contribute to the development of harmful algal blooms.
Sustainable products prevent water pollution by reducing the number of harmful chemicals and waste entering our waters. For example, eco-friendly cleaning products use natural ingredients such as vinegar, baking soda and citrus extracts that are harmless to the environment and easily biodegradable. Reducing water pollution is important for protecting our health. When our waterways are polluted, it can lead to a number of health problems. For example, contact with contaminated water can cause gastrointestinal illness, skin irritation, and respiratory problems.
Sustainable products are closely associated with slow aging, but with many large companies joining the trend, it can be difficult to find small sustainable brands. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find products that use only natural and organic ingredients.
The founders of El Green Mall thought so too. Tired of spending hours searching for sustainable brands and products, they decided to create El Green Mall, a place to find all sustainable products in one place.
