Sustainable Kitchens

I posted about Green America and the short buyers guide that they sent in the mail a few months ago.  Here's another list that comes from them and a more indepth article on the subject.  I actually found this one the most helpful as I can rarely remember the names of the ingredients that aren't so good for us or other living beings.

8 Body Care Toxins to Avoid:

1. Mercury (and the mercury preservative thimerosal)
2. Lead – listed as "lead acetate"
3. Nanoparticles
4. Placenta
5. Hydroquinone skin lightener
6. Phthalates
7. Petroleum by-products, ex. 1,4 -dioxane
8. Fragrance

Hope it's helpful for you too
