Green Apple Supply Review

I have three awesome products to tell you about that will help aid you while you are taking a shower or bath or simply washing your face. Whoever came up with these products had a very good idea especially on my favorite two pieces out of the three. The company is Green Apple Supply and here is what they sent me to review:
1.)  Recycled Body Polisher
2.)  Recycled Facial Mitt
3.)  Recycled Exfoliating Gloves
Let's start with the Facial Mitt, which is one of the two I liked the best:
This mitt is an Eco-friendly bathing experience with an exfoliating Facial Mitt made using at least 50% re-cycled PET Plastic drinking bottles. Isn't that awesome? You get a hand mitt that can scrub your face pretty darn clean and it's eco-friendly so we are helping the planet on top of that!
It actually felt a little bit like a smaller scale microdermabrasion skincare polish but without the chemicals that they put into the skincare product. All you do is wet the mitt and use your favorite face cleanser.  And if you don't like the red one, they also have it in charcoal!
Now, this is the 2nd item I liked and it's the Recycled Exfoliating Gloves. These can be used to also wash the face if you wanted, but I wouldn't. You have too much scrubbing going on with all that material on your face at the same time. This set of gloves I used for all over my body to get the exfoliation I need with my dry skin so that the skin softners can work better.
I have been using one of those long handled bath scrubbers for my back but these gloves work much better on my arms and legs and tummy. They really cleaned the skin a lot better than anything else I could have used. Just be careful you don't rub too hard. As with the Hand Mitt, this also comes in Red and is an Eco-friendly bathing experience with a pair of exfoliating body gloves made using at least 50% re-cycled PET Plastic drinking bottles.
Lastly, is the Recycled Body Polisher that is shaped just like a Rose! I liked this product, just not as much as the other two. Nothing wrong with it but I just haven't good luck with these type scrubbers. I can't hold onto them like the Mitt and Gloves because of the RA and Fibromyalgia. Since my RA meds stopped working and that was the last RA medication left, I am basically out of luck with the RA, unless a new drug comes along.
Now, if you have been using these spongy or netted ones like in the stores, then this one will still do the trick as the others but with the added twist of being recycled and eco-friendly to boot! They are made of the same materials as the other two so I won't mention that again. I gave this product to my granddaughter because she has always liked these and loves them very much!
She especially loved the Rose look. This one comes in red or white because they are awesome looking as roses. I don't think any other color would have pulled it off as good as these two colors.
Green Apple Supply has a whole lot more products than just the three I just mentioned. They have art supplies, office supplies, school supplies, bath products, home products, toys and games along with cleaning supplies. There are way too many to list here, but they have just about everything, so I would go and look it over and see what you might like to try.
This is what I found under About Us:
As parents, we want the best for our kids.  And as global citizens, we are all faced with the responsibility to care for our planet, and each other.  What began as an endeavor to feed our family natural, organic foods has grown into a much larger enterprise.  We began to learn about potential dangers to our children, and the planet, in our cleaning supplies, household goods, office supplies…everywhere.   
The worsening state of our environment, climate change, and increasing levels of toxins showing up in children’s bloodwork combined to create a great passion for exposing our family to only the cleanest, most wholesome products.  We were lucky to be able to provide only the best for our family, but we believe that every family should have access to the finest. 
When we inquired as to why individuals were choosing traditional products rather than opting for eco-friendly versions, we were typically given one of two answers: 
1.  Green products are too expensive.
2.  There are too many choices, and some are not effective. 
By utilizing economies of scale, wholesale purchasing power, and personal product experience, we endeavor to make it easier for anyone to purchase Earth-friendly products.  We are keeping overhead low and this is a non-profit effort.   
Products are sold as close to cost as we can, while still keeping the lights on. Why? Because we think it’s the right thing to do.
