05_15_09_shampoo.jpgWith spring cleaning in full spring, we're looking beyond just the countertops and turning to the bathtub. And we're not just talking keeping the mildew to a minimum: what about the products we reach for at every shower?

The body wash is all-natural and biodegradable, the facewash is organic... but one thing that's yet to go "green" is the shampoo (we know! We're bad people!). Since we're not ready to go 'poo-less, read on to find out why we'll be switching to a natural choice as soon as the current bottle is empty.

We've made one green move toward sustainable shampoo by using less to cut down on waste, but after reading these few words from Grist, we're ready to take the plunge into an all-natural bathroom cabinet.

Since many widely available shampoos contain chemicals, and some even sport those scary carcinogenic pthalates, Grist recommends turning to an eco-friendly alternative. Not to mention, if you're collecting stray shower drops in a bucket to water the plants, you'll want to make sure that water contains Earth-friendly soaps.

Check out their reviews, and be sure to let us know what you use that leaves your locks feeling fresh.
