Shopping for eco-friendly home/body/lifestyle products can be just as confounding as shopping for healthy food products. "Natural" is such a vague, unregulated term that it makes separating the good from the chemically-filled challenging. Plus, the fact that eco-friendly products often come at a premium cost that not everyone can (or wants to) pay can make your shopping decisions even more difficult.
Sustainable fashion and accessories have been extensively covered, but there is so much more than just fashion to consider. Click through the above slideshow to learn about the top brands looking to remove chemicals from all aspects of your life — from the paint on your wall, to the diaper on your baby's bum... no compromising on quality involved!

Yoga Mat: Corc Yoga
Corc Yoga mats are made using sustainable organic cork harvested from trees in Portugal. No trees are cut down in the process, making them a 100% recyclable, renewable and biodegradable source. But they also work: They've got a non-slip grip, thanks to a unique honeycomb structure, and are lightweight to boot.
