About Eco Logic

Eco Logic is essentially conversations about living lightly and doing helpful things for the natural world around us. It’s really a reflection of what I hear from friends, groups that I get involved with, readers of Homemakers magazine (where I work), and what I read in comments and feedback from homemakers.com. Every day I see good news happening by people who do good things for their community and the environment. No doubt Eco Logic readers will have great ideas to share with me — and with each other.

I’ll write about my experiences of trying to live green, through the things I’m trying out in my own life at home, at work and beyond, as well as observations about new green technologies, things happening in the natural world, and what people around the world are doing too, since I think it all affects us.

There are all kinds of green projects I’d like to tackle, and chat about with you, to figure out how to make change in whatever way we can. We have habitat loss, we have pollution invading what should be clean and green, we have climate change and more. I think a whole lot of little actions by us and by community organizations, along with a whole lot of expectations of our governments, can make a really big difference.

I hope you’ll share your experiences and opinions, since I think we can figure things out better together than we can on our own.

    Made in the first Eco-Factory in the US, OrganicPedic by OMI is crafted in a chemical-free, smoke-free and fragrance-free environment with an exclusive ozone sanitation chamber. The company uses organic wool from humanely sheared sheep, all wood is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, and the 100% natural rubber is sustainably harvested. The purity of the plant is so closely guarded that employees are forbidden from wearing deodorant, fragrances and even using fabric softeners on their clothing!

    In addition, it is the only brand to receive the coveted GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification as well as the GREENGUARD, LEED and a dozen others.

    I am happy to provide additional info or images.

    Feel free to contact me with any questions!

    I am a long-time reader of Eco Logic. I love that you are constantly up-to-date with the latest environmental issues which affect Canadians. I represent a company, Green Cricket which is a Green lifestyle store dedicated to making the transition to a green home fun, easy, affordable, and hip.

    Green Cricket was started by a Toronto-based mom to make environmental choices easy and reliable for the average consumer. For more on the Green Cricket story, please click here http://www.greencricket.ca/press/pdfs/press_kit.pdf
    I would love to discuss with you ways in which we could work together. If you would like to sample any products you see on the website, please let me know.

    I’ve eliminated using laundry detergent, one of the worst posphate contributors! How? I am using a new technology called Laundry Pure. NO laundry detergent is needed! NO hot water is used! NO fabric softener is needed! NO bleach! NO perfume smell!
    The cold water is filtered through ultraviolet rays, which kill bacteria and clean your clothes. Your colours will be brighter , fluffier and will last longer too
