Natural Living

By Irene Fogarty

A few years back I was on a cleaning campaign that involved cleaning bathrooms with vinegar. I went to visit my sister in London and while she was at work, I worked on her entire bathroom: the tub, sink, faucets, everything with white vinegar and toothpaste. The place gleamed and I was thrilled with the results until her roommate complained of the weird smell. The nerve! Not only had I slaved for hours scrubbing on my knees but also I had provided a sparkling clean bathroom with no chemicals that just might prevent cancer! That was four years ago, so now I’m proud to announce a new site that’s on the same campaign with more pleasing aromas: Eco-me.com – and it’s for all of us.

Eco-me, is an LA based site that was recently launched by a brave New Yorker, Robin Levine. With a darling sister Leslie, who was suffering from breast cancer for no apparent reason, (no family history and rather “healthy”), Robin began to question what could possibly cause this: pollutants, everyday pollutants we use in our homes, on our skin, in our food, pollutants that surround us.

Out of her studying, Robin founded Eco-me.com to help us keep our lives (and bathrooms) cleaner from chemicals, carcinogens and perhaps from cancers. For this I congratulate her for creating something that makes a difference for everyone.

Order an Eco-Me Home Cleaning Kit for less than $30.00 and you can create your own chemical-free cleaning products for a safe and natural home: The kit Includes:

  • 1 natural fiber storage bag
  • 2 spray bottles for mixing spray cleaner and polish
  • 1 jar for mixing scrub cleanser
  • 1 natural bristle scrub brush
  • 1 handy mixer
  • 1 microfiber cleaning cloth
  • 1 bottle Eco-Me essential oil home blend

Easy to follow instructions show you how to mix ingredients right from your own kitchen. Just add your own: oil, vinegar, water and baking soda
Mix some of ours: Eco-Me essential oil home blend.

Eco-Me’s proprietary blend of essential oils aid in removing dirt, mildew, mold, water stains and other household grime. Remember, one bottle of Eco-Me essential oil home blend will last for 2 fills of each product — that’s 6 cleaning products in just 1 kit!

Think of what you save and what you will do for your bathroom and for the environment. What’s more, of the meagerly $26 dollars you pay for the Eco-cleaning kit, Eco-me donates 10% of the proceeds online sales to charities supporting breast cancer research, education and support. This is a small effort to make a big chance. And for that, and other reasons, I salute Eco-me. I will cover each and every one of the kits so you can safely clean your house, your skin, your pet and in the process, your soul.

Nice work Eco-me…suddenly you’ve made us feel, it ‘s so not about “me”, but all of us. And eh, for my sister’s roommate, checkout eco-news for all the reasons “why we love white vinegar” – not than I’m the revengeful type or anything!

For more info, contact info@eco-me.com and they’ll get a cleaning kit out to you right away.
