Adria Vasil: Safeguarding Against Exaggerated Green Claims [VIDEO]
However, she asserts that we need to remember one important point of the equation: if we didn't get angry about being misled, we wouldn't care about buying more conscious products in the first place. "We're annoyed with these labels because we care," she explains. So, instead of boycotting the entire industry, she suggests that we "actually support the mom-and-pops that are doing it right." While she doesn't recommend that you blindly trust all the labels on your products, she does say that becoming complacent about your purchases altogether is not the answer. Just because many products are indeed exaggerating how green their ingredients and processes are, doesn't mean that there aren't beneficial natural products out there.
In her books and lively talks, Vasil advocates for a more conscious future. Author of the popular Ecoholic series and a regular environmental columnist, she teaches her audiences to live greener, smarter, and healthier lives.
