Lots of us want to buy products that are more environmentally friendly, but often a higher cost gets in the way. The new Earth Essentials line from CVS/pharmacy could help with that. Priced at $3.99-8.99, Earth Essentials include bowls and plates that look and act like paper (biodegradable and microwaveable) but are made from sugarcane, a renewable resource. Earth Essentials Paper Towels and Napkins are made with 100% recycled fibers and these are actually recommended by Greenpeace — talk about a green stamp of approval! The bath tissue is also made from 100% recycled fibers — as we’ve discussed, toilet paper can be a huge environmental offender. Check out the whole Earth Essentials line at CVS. Have you seen affordable green alternatives in other stores? Let us know in comments. –Mary T.
