Now that I am going to no chemicals. I am wondering what I should do with this ton of stuff I am not using?

I'd offer it on Freecycle, or donate it to a woman's shelter (if they'll take open bottles) or give it to a friend or relative who doesnt' mind using the chemical stuff.
As for donating "yucky chemicals to those in need"- really, anybody in a shelter situation has more immediate priorities. Getting their family's basic needs met are struggles, dealing with the emotional fallout of abuse is a HUGE challenge- it's just NOT the time to worry about parabens in your shampoo. You're just thankful to have a place to wash your hair and something to wash it with.
Commercial baby care products would be well appreciated in a shelter, and if you don't donate your stuff, part of the shelter budget will go towards purchasing similar items anyway.
