Green products have to be better engineered.
I have very sensitive skin and had been using Shiseido products for years when a friend recommended a particular line of organic skin-care products at Whole Foods. No animal testing. I gave it a try, but my face started looking terrible after a few days of using the products. I switched back to Shiseido and my face went back to normal. Result: when faced with the choice of rabbits suffering or me suffering – I prefer it to be the rabbits. But give me something that works for my skin, and I would be happy to switch.
After several years the score is: No-Animal-Testing Products 0 : Shiseido 4
Cloth diapers don’t work well enough! Many people who do not want to contribute to the landfill buy a whole $300 supply of cloth diapers. BTW, throwing diapers into the trash is illegal and I suppose that makes it the most often committed offense in the country or maybe the world, because everyone does it. Well, a cloth cannot contain a baby’s night-time business and when faced with leaking diapers and having to change a baby once or more times during the night… and the baby not wanting to go back to sleep… you guessed it: gimme Huggies and let me add to the stinking heap of landfill. Huggies work great and parents and baby get to sleep a few hours…
Paper towels work great. When there is a spill there is nothing as effective as paper towels. When a liquid approaches your laptop, will you try to stop it with a cloth-towel or don’t you think paper towels are much more effective…
In short Green products need to improve. We need to stop using trees for paper and start using alternative plant materials, e.g. hemp. Let’s face it, we are not going to stop using paper, but we can make it from a different source.
