Unique Eco Chic, Environmentally Friendly Products From Chartreuse

Updated on December 30, 2010

Be Distinctively Green with Organic Beauty Products and Chic Reusables from Chartreuse

Who is Chartreuse? Chartreuse is an eco friendly company offering a wide array of green products that to help you out on your path to going green. Find eco chic reusable shopping bags, biodegradable trash bags, all natural household cleaners, and organic personal care products like the organic facial cream, organic shower gel or herbal tea lotion.

Chartreuse's products are easily purchased online, or through fun, informative home parties that provide a forum to share questions and ideas and sample products. You can find these products at TheGreenerEarth.com. A customer favorite is the paperless paper towels, which will save you from buying paper towels ever again (not to mention save a lot of money!).

Most "green products" come along with a higher price tag. Why is it that these products are more expensive? Smaller companies often produce more earth friendly products, resulting in smaller batches, more quality control, less pesticide use, and the use of products that are just generally more expensive.

Due to outsourcing, importing of overaseas sweatshop produced products, and the use of virgin materials (instead of recycled), larger company giants like Wal-Mart are able to keep their prices down. But at what cost? What is the true cost to the environment and to humans? Over time, if consumers continue to purchase recycled materials from green manufacturers, the process will likely become just as efficient as virgin materials, and much cheaper than their current price.

Chartreuse: A True Passion for Recycling

Chartreuse relies almost completely on electronic forms of communication, from emails to documents and forms. All of the products that are shipped to your door use as much recycled materials as possible. Creative packaging methods are used such as shredded cardboard and newspaper. All "peanuts" are starch, which completely dissolves in water, making it easy to dispose of. Chartreuse plastic bags are completely biodegradable.

Reusable (Paperless) Towels...they Make Sense!

Reusable towels from sustainable trees!

Not only do reusable paperless towels make sense, but they'll save lots of cents if you use paper towels often. If you're like the average household, you might be using 1-2 rolls of paper towels per week...that adds up fast! It also adds up in the landfill, and wastes much needed trees.

With these reusable towels, you'll:

-Save money!

-Save space in your kitchen!

-Be greener by saving some trees!

Read the ten reasons why you should use the paperless towels from Chartreuse here.

A Whole lot of waste!

An estimated one third of all waste in America is packaging material! Eliminate that and you've saved valuable resources like trees, water, and the production of toxic synthetic materials like foam peanuts and tape residue.

Chartreuse uses excellent quality labels and bottles, so there's no reason to dispose of them after a single use. Refills in pre-measured sealed pouches (which can be opened and poured into the reusable bottles) are sold through the site as well. When your bottle or jar has enjoyed a long life, feel free to recycle it and request a new one with your next order.

We don't waste fossil fuels or create carbon dioxide emissions shipping water. Water is the largest percentage ingredient in most cleaning products. We see no reason why you should pay for water or that the shipping of this water weight should release unnecessary green house gasses. We sell our cleaning products in pre-measured concentrates, without the water. Just snip them open, pour them into the bottles provided and fill to the top with your own water. Don't throw the bottles away after one use. Order refills in sealed pouches and reuse your bottles as long as you can. It saves money and the planet.

You Can Save Money by Going Green!

Changing your habits can save you money!

Going green isn't something that's supposed to cost you more money. In fact, the idea is to conserve as much as possible! While some organic products might cost more now, the health benefits down the road are something to consider. I've outlined some of the ways you can build your wealth by going green here, but there are some definite ways that Chartreuse can actually save you money! Here are just a few...

- The reusable dryer sheets will cut down on your normal dryer sheets costs by 50%

- On the average, customers save much more money by using soap nuts to wash their clothing than laundry detergent, since they can be used again and again!

- Paperless towels will save you at least $1 per week, more if you consume more than a roll of paper towels every week!

- Reusable bags will pay themselves back over time. You get a 5-10 cent credit at most places for every bag!

      Ah, I knew that I had heard of Chartreuse products before -- so you are an independent consultant for their line? Great products.

      good lens on being green. I disagree with you though about green cleaning supplies costing more. I did a cost comparison on my lens between common cleaning supplies and green cleaning and you would be surprised. however, when purchasing so called green products from stores like walmart,etc they do seem to charge more because they put the label "green" on it. check out my lens at A Healthy Home

      5 stars to you

      Great to know that Chartreuse doesn't test on animals. Are any of the products certified vegan? If so, I'd love to feature them on my vegan skin care lens.
