They then combine with pure, high quality coconut oil, carefully selected quality plant cellulose and crystal clean water they bring you winning formula variations that naturally take care of your cleaning requirements for inside and outside the home.

 

THEY SUPPORT REFORESTATION

Did You Know…? According to the United Nations’ Food & Agriculture Organisation, 18 million acres of forest, an area roughly the size of Panama, is lost each year to deforestation (2015).

Foresthog have made their first contribution to The Word Forest Organisation based in Lyme Regis and run by Tracey and Simon West! They began this fabulous reforestation program in Kenya a few years ago.

The Word Forest Organisation is a Registered Charity No: 117249 and 4000 trees.

They are very happy to be a part of this special Charity and to be able to see where their valued customers contribution goes.

Our purchases are multi-tiered, helping us, helping others and helping the earth.

THOUGHTS

I honestly love these products and totally recommend them to anyone wanting to switch up to eco items.

If the fumes from commercial cleaners containing synthetic chemicals make you feel a little ugh or you wish to be able to start making small changes for the world then cleaning products using essential oils derived from plants are perfect for you!

With all this collection you can breathe in chemical free air at home, sleep on sheets that have no chemicals lurking in the fibres potentially irritating your skin, wear clothes that have a soft smell of lavender and clean, have chemical free dishes to eat off and drink out of and eat fruit and veg whose nasties you can’t see have been rinsed away. 

Essential oils are all natural and biodegradable and many contain powerful antiseptic, antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties that make them remarkably effective at household cleaning PLUS essential oils from orange fights against viruses, bacteria, and fungus while imparting the loveliest of smells. 

You should go eco-friendly – as all natural products ensure safety from all dangerous chemicals and allows families to avoid risky additives that can cause any of these issues.

Using eco-friendly products improves quality of life in terms of mortality, age, diseases, and illnesses – they ensure the safety of families and the planet!

Price wise yes they are more than normal products, however, we all know natural products such as these will cost that slight bit more but these last long and affordable prices.
