As sales of organic food have risen over the last decade, it has become apparent we are increasingly concerned about the level of chemicals we are putting in our body. But what about the chemicals we put on our body? Most women wear make-up every day, and yet until now it has been difficult to find organic cosmetics that are both stylish and eco-friendly. This is where Nvey Eco comes in. There has long been a flourishing trade in organic and paraben-free toiletries, as we seek to reduce the use of petrochemicals, and the impact of our beauty regimes on the environment and, potentially, our health. Now you can also buy organic, paraben-free make-up that doesn’t compromise on the high standards today’s women expect from their beauty products. Nvey Eco is a range of luxury cosmetics that are not only organic and paraben-free, they also steer clear of petrochemicals and synthetic fragrances, instead using natural plant and mineral ingredients to deliver beautiful and professional looking results.

Organic Fortnight at the Ethical Superstore
The Soil Association’s Organic Fortnight finishes this weekend, but there is still time to scoop up a bargain at the Ethical Superstore. This eco-retailer is holding an Organic Fortnight promotion, offering up to 20% off selected groceries. Many of these are also available in good value multi-buy offers also – and there’s free delivery on all orders over £60. The Soil Association is keen to show that not only is buying organic better for the planet, it doesn’t have to be expensive – with smart shopping, you can still bag a bargain, and the Ethical Superstore’s range starts from under £1!

From bedlinen to dresses, underwear, t-shirts and children’s clothes, there’s now a huge range of organic products available – you can even now buy organic cotton mattresses! And don’t forget beauty products – the humble cotton wool pad or baby wipe – as buying organic versions of these will also help reduce the amount of chemicals that are used. And it’s not just specialist eco-retailers like Ethical Superstore who are promoting organic goods – big high street names like Marks and Spencer are getting in on the act. They now sell a range of organic clothing and household goods (including curtains). Plus, you can buy a stylish organic shopper to carry it all home in…
