9 Swaps To An Eco Lifestyle

9 Swaps To An Eco Lifestyle

No individual habit is going to completely save the environment, but little changes lead to a big impact—especially if we all do our part. These few simple swaps are a smart place to start:

1. Be prepared:
Carry a metal spork and straw in your purse, and keep clean food containers and reusable bags in your car so you’re always ready for impromptu take-out and grocery runs.

2. Ditch Single Use Plastic
Say no to plastic cups at coffee shops, and bring your own reusable one instead. Tip: Many major coffee shops will even give you a discount when you bring your own reusable cup or mug!

3. Consider Solar Panels:
Work toward setting aside a budget for solar panels. With rising energy costs, the return on your investment pays off faster than ever before.

4. Limit Baths:
Limit the number of baths you take per week, and save some water from the bathtub to use for watering plants or cleaning the house the next day.

5. Conserve Water:
Always turn off the faucet when brushing your teeth and shaving. It’s a small habit that over time, will help conserve water and energy.

6. Opt for the Dishwasher:
Dishwashers use water more efficiently than hand washing dishes. Despite this fact, it's important to make sure you only run the dishwasher when it's at least 80% full.

7. Skip The Dryer:
When the weather is nice and the sun is strong, head outside to air-dry big pieces like duvet covers, throws, blankets to save energy. If you’d like to soften the fabric a bit more, transfer to the dryer once the load is mostly dry.

8. Support Sustainable:
Try to shift away from purchases in single-use plastic, and support brands that use sustainable, eco-friendly and biodegradable packaging.

9. Go Non-Toxic:
Switch from synthetic personal care products to non-toxic + natural when you can. Not only are some of those harsh chemicals irritating to your skin, but they are harmful to the planet.

Searching for safe, eco-friendly self-care products that actually work? Got you covered, head to toe.
