Ology -- Walgreens Affordable, Non-Toxic, Eco-Friendly Line of Products

4 years ago

By now most of you know that I’m a BIG proponent of going “green” on a lean budget and convenient manner.  I won’t ever suggest you go off the grid and overhaul your entire home, instead I try to offer simple, actionable steps you can take to make healthier choices for your family without going broke.

I find it frustrating to see people purchase products with known chemical hazards when there is an eco-friendly option available for a competitive price. That said, I was super excited when I recently stumbled upon a new line of store-brand products that are not only eye catching but affordable and – drum roll please, good for the planet!

Ology exclusive to Walgreens’ family of companies, the brand features a line of baby and personal care products as well as household cleaners. The new brand would falls in line with legislation presently under consideration — The Safe Chemicals Act — that if passed, would require that ingredients be determined safe for human health before being used in everyday consumer products. The pending legislation has led several industry leaders to pledge to remove potentially harmful and carcinogenic chemicals from several offerings over the next several years.

What I really like about the presentation of Ology, it that all of their products are placed right next too leading brands in specific categories such as personal health, baby and home. This type of layout in my opinion, provides consumers the chance to easily select what they feel is a greener choice. Those looking to clean in a manner that is safer and healthier no longer need to visit a specialty store or order their eco cleaners online. Having greener products accessible to everyone means that more people are likely to buy and use them.

Ology brand products are available at Walgreens and Duane Reade locations, as well as online. Items are  available nationwide  and are value priced compared to conventional formulas of leading brands.

Ology liquid products are free of most harmful chemicals and include:

  •             Baby Care – lotion and 2-in-1 body wash
  •             Laundry – liquid detergent and fabric softener
  •             Cleaners – glass cleaner and all-purpose cleaner
  •             Personal Care – adult shampoo and conditioner

Ology brand products also include light bulbs and paper products that are 100 percent tree-free and made from readily renewable resources.

  •             Paper – bath and facial tissue, paper towels and copy paper
  •             Lighting – compact fluorescent light bulbs

At this point, I’ve only purchased their toilet paper, so stay tuned for an additional reviews on their personal care, baby and home products that I plan to incorporate into my household.
