New Ology Products by Walgreens Endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World

We were sent a gift card from Walgreens in order that we could go to the store and pick out which of the new Ology line of products we wanted to try. I have to say, the experience was a bit overwhelming. I am not familiar with drugstore shopping, and I had envisioned all of the Ology products would be on display together somewhere as a featured new product. Instead, they were interspersed with other more mainstream products of the same nature, which makes sense for the average shopper, but it didn't help them stand out.

"Walgreens is proud to be leading the charge by providing 'Ology,' the first nationally accessible and affordable line of household liquid products free of harmful chemicals available in our stores," said Joe Magnacca, president of daily living products and solutions for Walgreens. "Ology reflects our dedication to innovation, our constant drive to improve our customers' quality of life, and our ongoing commitment to help people get, stay and live well."

"Increasing evidence shows that the chemicals included in everyday products could be contributing to children's diseases and behavioral disorders, including asthma, autism and cancer," says Gigi Lee Chang, CEO of Healthy Child Healthy World, one of the nation's leading independent non-profit organizations dedicated to the empowerment of consumers and the protection of children from harmful chemicals. "Until the U.S. adopts better regulations around product safety--like we do in other countries--parents are left to bear the burden of protecting their children's health by educating themselves and making conscious purchases. With the help of Walgreens Ology products, concerned consumers now have easier access to affordable and safer solutions."


The fact these products are endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World is huge! This is an organization I trust wholeheartedly, unlike the Sierra Club's endorsement of Clorox Greenworks.

With our gift card, we purchased the following Ology products to try:

All of the bottles are made from 100% post-consumer materials.

There are a lot of Ology products, and I think it is great that consumers have a choice now in mainstream stores like Walgreens. It seems like there is a Walgreens on every corner in cities and suburbs (but there isn't even one in my rural county).

disclosure: The products described above were sent to us as free samples. Prior assurances as to the nature of the reviews, whether positive or negative, were not given. No financial payments were accepted in exchange for the reviews. The reviews reflect our honest, authentic opinions.
