There are probably millions of vegan, cruelty-free, organic, gluten-free products on the market, and I am sure they are all delectable and worth every penny, but what product choices can I make locally, at stores available to me, to make a difference?
One product line that is ready to help lift ecological footprints is the Walgreens private line called Ology, available in most Walgreens on the island. Ology is a non-toxic, natural, environmentally friendly line of household cleaning, paper, disposable, and beauty products. The paper products are "tree free" and created with a blend of sugarcane husk, and bamboo, one a byproduct from the sugar industry, and the other one of the most renewable sources in the world. The beauty, baby, and cleaning products are non-toxic and cruelty-free.
Puerto Rico has more Walmarts and Walgreens (per capita) than anywhere else in the world. Many of these environmental, ecological, and affordable products are available all over the island! If these are not in your area, check online at www.walgreens.com/q/ology, or ask the manager to start carrying Ology products.
