Reducing the amount of waste you produce may not seem like a big thing, but it can really have a positive effect on the environment. And using reusable items, such as glass straws or compostable-packaged goods is an easy switch to do! If you aren't sure where to start swapping, then take a look through this list of favorites by sustainable living blogger LW (@wherethewildasare).
She says, "With so many options out there online and in stores, it can be hard to choose what is not only best for the environment but what also works well! This list is only the tip of the iceberg in great products, but please always do your research and find out what ingredients are actually going into your home.
As a busy, working mom myself, I understand we don't have the luxury of time. If I give you one piece of advice, it's to read past the terms "green," "natural," and "eco," just to name a few, on the product packaging since a quick list through the ingredients might show that they aren't actually environmentally friendly. Read on to find a few of my favorite products, with no research required."
The things you do now affect us now and will affect our children for the future. Every little change we put into effect can make a big impact (think the butterfly effect), and you may even notice a change in yourself.
We are all on this journey together and don't downplay your role in becoming part of the solution. Reduce, reuse, and recycle. As always, I am always open to recommendations and discussions, and I'm also available for advice!
