Happy Wednesday! I hope life finds you well. I am getting in the groove here at my new office. It is pretty exciting and never a dull moment. I thought I would share some healthier
swaps for an easier, more sustainable, healthier approach.
Ditch your plastic in the kitchen. Use glass for drinking out of and storing your goods. I love mason jars. Mason jars also make great drinking glasses! Stainless steel is great as well. I have some copper cups I love.
For groceries, use either a reusable cloth bag or use paper, and use mesh bags for your produce. Ditch the plastic all together.
Instead of those chemical ridden dryer sheets, invest in some wool dryer balls.
Another great sustainable product is a bamboo toothbrush. Billions of plastic toothbrushes end up in landfill every year. Bamboo is biodegradable, fast growing and quickly replenished. It takes a lot less water to grow bamboo than almost all other wood types.
As old-fashioned as this sounds, bars of soap are actually a really fantastic way of reducing plastic waste in your household. I make a couple of different bar soaps, available in my website store or in my Etsy store.
Whether it’s for the kids, or a lunch on the go for you, it can be easy to give in to single use packaging like plastic take away containers or wrappers. A fantastic swap to consider is the use of reusable containers and bowls. This includes stainless steel bento boxes and ceramic bowls with lids which transform your lunch time experience and simultaneously avoid waste.
I said I would just list a few tips, so that is it for today! I hope you have a great rest of your week. Until next time, much love and light your way!
