As the world starts making wiser choices to make a conscience effort to clean up the world of toxins so that our children have a better place to grow up in more and more company’s are turning to producing products that are better for the environment. Walgreen’s has added the Ology brand to shelves to provided a product that includes natural ingredients. Offering products that help us all be as energy efficient as possible.
Ology features a line of baby and personal care products, as well as household cleaners that are free of harmful chemicals. In addition, Ology offers light bulbs and 100% tree-free paper products. Exclusive to Walgreens family of companies, Ology is the solution to the growing consumer demand for safer formulations of everyday household products. I was offered the opportunity to pick up a few Ology products of my choice from Walgreens. We decided to try out the Ology Soft and Strong Bath Tissue, Ology Ultra Absorbent Paper Towels and the Ology All- Purpose Cleaner.
Bath Tissue: Is made from 100% Tree Free. The packaging says its made from Sugarcane husk & Bamboo. 300 Two-ply sheets per roll and is septic safe.
My personal opinion is that I found it was interesting that the paper products are made 100% tree free. The packaging says that traditional paper is made from trees that take up to 35 years to replace. This biodegradable bath tissue is made from readily renewable sugarcane husk that would be otherwise be disposed and quick-growing bamboo that regenerates in as little as 6months. This certainly sounds like a wonderful solution to a product that can offer a better life for all of us in the future. Do I think the toilet paper soft? Not compared to what I normally use but I think making a sacrifice to chose a better product that makes a healthier environment for all is a great choice.
Paper towels: 65 two-ply sheets per roll whitened with non-chlorine bleach.Perfect for quick clean ups and spills. I liked using these great for putting on the paper towel roll. The kids go through a lot of paper towels around here and these did a good job for clean ups.
All- Purpose Cleaner: Citrus Based. No Harmful Chemicals. This is a natural spray for kitchen counter tops, stove tops, and most household surfaces to clean and shine containing no harsh solvents, dyes or ammonia so its safe for you and your family. Seeing that this is a healthier product for cleaning I like that. I’m not too fond of the smell so I do hope they come out with other scents. The one I have is Meyer, Lemon & Lavender. I’m not really smelling lavender which is one of my favorite scents so I’m excited to see if they come out with any of the scents.
