In Honor Of Earth Day, Try These Eco-Friendly Swaps

As we approach the 50th anniversary of Earth Day (this Saturday!) I’d like to check in with you guys to see how your eco-friendly challenges have been going. I’ve done well with some of my changes, but some of them were more difficult for me. I’m a work in progress!

Besides our contributions at home, there are thousands of companies who are dedicated to developing new technology to lessen their carbon footprint. As much as I love to DIY beauty products, there are some household items you just can’t re-create at home. When I have to hit the store, it’s important to me to continue my sustainable efforts by supporting these businesses who are making an effort to be more earth friendly.

For example, Method started packaging some of their household products with plastic reclaimed from the ocean! And I just learned that researchers have found a way to potentially skip the plastic and create packaging out of unsellable potatoes. There are already some snack foods out there that are sold in biodegradable bags!

Each year I try to add another sustainable habit to my lifestyle. I know I can’t do it all at once, but I’ve found that even adding in one thing makes me more aware of other choices I make throughout the day. I’ve put together a few products that I think I can swap out to do my part with our environment — what everyday things do you think you can live without?

PS: You can click the items to learn more!

I’d love it if you could help me come up with a list of sustainable products! Please send your favorite earth-friendly brands to askjuleshough@gmail.com. I’ll post a list of our recommendations to share!

Hello, Julianne!

I have a challenge for you… If you choose to accept it.

The past few years, I have been trying to pay more attention to the waste/trash I generate. Some people call it “Zero Waste,” but, let’s be serious, you are never going to create zero waste (I’m never giving up toilet paper or tampons, just saying).

However, there are a lot of easy things that you can do every day to start cutting back. This blog is very helpful.

Good luck!
Anne
