Living Green, why?

 
 
There are alot of reasons why I choose to live green. I do not want to be exposed to harmful toxins, I do not want my kids to be exposed either.
I have not completely gotten rid of all the bad things, but slowly I drop one thing, then another.
 
But what is the main reason for this? Everyone's answer is different, no one has the same answer, except we want to be healthier. I do it for this reason and because the Bible tell us we are the temple of the Holy Ghost (1 Co 3:16; 1 Co 6:19; 2 Co 6:16) and that God is living inside us. I know the Lord wants me to keep my body {temple} as clean as possible. He lives there, He deserves a clean place to work and stay.
I also feel better when there isn't as much junk in my system.
This includes how I eat too!
 
Cleaning products I have nailed, I am doing great with that! My biggest challenge is body care items. Hair care especially.
I cannot spend a fortune on pre-made organic things, and with all the "green washing" I do not know who and what to trust anymore. {green washing is company's saying 'all natural', 'organic' and not truly being what they say they are!} It's important to know how to read the labels, but sometimes they leave off ingredients because they do not have to label them all.
 
I am on a quest to find great homemade hair care recipes, products that do not cost and arm and a leg and something that will work with my hair type.
This scares me so badly because I made my own shampoo once and thought I was going to go bald! This is not cool!
I live by the scripture that your hair is your glory and it is a shame for a woman to cut her hair (1 Co 11:5-15) so naturally my hair is really important to me. If I get ahold of a recipe that does make my hair fall out I will go crazy!!
 
If you have any tried and true ideas, products you buy or recipes you love please share with me!!!
