Ecostore USA ~ Review ~ The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide

With people becoming more mindful of our earth, recycling and going green, it's natural to consider cleaning products that are also safe for us and our earth.

Ecostore USA offers products that are made from plant- and mineral-based ingredients, free of toxic chemicals, that bring people closer to nature with non-toxic, environmentally safe solutions that also help to reduce our carbon footprint.  

No Nasty Chemicals™ is the foundation of the entire product line and philosophy of Ecostore USA.
I recently tried 2 products from Ecostore USA for the first time.  

The first product I tried was the Plant Based Laundry Liquid.  I have to admit, I was unsure of the scent when I first opened the bottle.  But then when I realized that it's 3x ultra concentrate I understood that the scent when mixed with laundry would be a pleasant and mild.  (Let me add that no perfumes are added to the Laundry Liquid, it's a natural scent from the natural, plant based products used.)  And I was right, our laundry smells fresh and clean, not perfume-y.  Also, because the Laundry Liquid is so concentrated a very little goes a long way.

The second product I tried was Naturally Active Pure Oxygen Whitener.  My 5yr old son is in karate and has a white gee (uniform).  He also has sensitive skin so I don't like to use bleach too often, if I can help it.  The problem is his karate gee tends to get filthy and starts looking dingy.  So I ordered the Pure Oxygen Whitener to see if that would help.  Sure enough it restored the whiteness to the gee without the harsh chemicals from bleach and without the strong, strong chemical smell of bleach.  No skin irritation, either!  It also worked fabulously with our towels.  I love pulling my towels out of the closet now.  They are nice and white with a crisp, clean smell.

Consider doing some of your holiday shopping at Ecostore USA.  Do you know a family that will be welcoming a new baby around the holidays?  Ecostore USA offers a wonderful line of baby products.  You could put a few items in a gift basket with some ribbon.  Or how about the college student, you could do a basket of soaps.  There are even products for our fur kids!  Or how about an e-gift certificate!  The possibilities are endless.

Ecostores USA offers free shipping on orders over $25 and you can find them at Meijer and Duane Reade stores.

I received samples to facilitate this review.  No other compensation was received.  All opinions expressed within the review are 100% my own.

Fur kids? What a great idea. My mother-in-law is obsessed with her cat and it is always hard to find a great gift. This is like giving to two people at once....if you consider the cat a person. ;-)
