#1 Natural Cleaning Supplies
Most typical cleaning products contain ingredients and chemicals that are harmful to the environment and harmful to breathe in. Brands like The Honest Company and Mrs. Meyer’s have a variety of household products that will not only leave your home sparkling, but they will also let you breathe easy. Both brands feature home cleaning products, as well as laundry detergent and body care. These are just two brands available, but there is a wide variety of brands that focus on natural cleaning supplies. Find the perfect supplies for your home!
#2 Opt for Reusable
When packing lunches, putting away leftovers, or preparing for a party, it can be easy to reach for those plastic bags or paper plates and plastic silverware, but you can easily reduce your carbon footprint by using reusable options. For lunches, invest in a lunchbox to carry your meal in, and to actually store your individual items, there are several reusable sandwich and snack bags to replace the throw-away plastic bags. When hosting friends, opt to use your plates and silverware instead of purchasing disposable ones. You can also stop purchasing plastic water bottles and use a refillable one throughout the day.
#3 Go Digital
Decrease your carbon footprint by increasing your digital one! Whether you travel all the time, enjoy concerts, or are setting up bill payments, almost anything can be purchased, stored, or sent to your phone or computer. Don’t print off your boarding pass or ticket, keep a photo of it on your phone that you can easily scan. When setting up bills, you can opt to pay for everything online that will not only reduce your paper waste, but also reduce the amount of times you have to check your mailbox for important documents.
