Happy New Year! So. Resolutions. I don't know about yours, but mine are the same resolutions I seem to make every few days: get to appointments on time, use the TTC more and taxis less, cook good-for-me foods and cut back on take-out or delivery, drink more water, get more sleep, up my fitness factor, live a greener lifestyle...
Organic Kitchen by Upper Canada is an easy way for me to check at least one thing off my list. The all-natural, made-in-Canada line of kitchen cleansers and care products clean with plant-derived ingredients, such as organic aloe, essential oils, botanical extracts and, in the Counter Spray, natural borax (a natural mineral compound). The biodegradeable line is completely free of sulfates, synthetic fragrances, parabens, colourants, petroleum products, SLS and animal ingredients. Its recyclable, dark-tint bottles are designed to help protect the freshness and effectiveness of the contents in the absence of traditional preservatives.
Anti-bacterial natural borax, a mineral compound, and grapefruit-seed extract help the Dish Soap and all-purpose Counter Spray make short work of grease and keep germs at bay without chemical toxins. The hand soap cleanses with anti-bacterial tea tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract, too, and conditions with organic aloe (the very first ingredient), and vitamins A, C, and E. The Hand Repair cream also has organic aloe at the top of its ingredient list, and includes shea butter (which has vitamins A, E and F, which smooths rough skin), as well as soybean and almond oils, all of which nourish dry sensitive skin.
Scents are light, natural and fresh, and available in lovely Grapefruit Patchouli, Nutmeg Ginger, Lavender Bergamot and Mint Sage. Tune in to The Shopping Channel at 9:40 am, 12:41, 5:43, 8:43 and 9:27 pm for more deets (I'll be on the other side of your screen); watch live broadcasts online here.
Upper Canada offerings are sold in stores, but the deals on The Shopping Channel are crazy. The four-piece Organic Kitchen set of counter spray, liquid dish soap, hand soap and hand repair lotion retails via TheShoppingChannel.com for less than $25 plus shipping.
If only making changes in other areas of my life were so easy.
