Going out of your way to be more earth-friendly is super hard when you are just trying to survive another day of managing young kids, work and other commitments. These small adjustments are easy to implement for a greener you!
1. Static Free and Waste-Free too
Use dryer balls instead of dryer sheets. One-time dryer cleans are made of chemicals and go straight into landfills.
2. Knowledge is power
Teach your kids about recycling with a board book and postable images.
3. Brusha’ Brusha’ Brusha
Use a this toothbrush or this biodegradable one. Why fill-up landfills with plastic one-time use toothbrushes when you don’t have to?
4. Store It Eco
Use Sustainable food storage products such as beeswrap, reZip bags, and glass tupperware sets.
5. Shop Earth-Friendly
Go to the grocery store with reusable totes like these lightweight ones or these heavy duty ones. Bring your own produce bags. No more landfill plastic waste for one-time food carrying!
Bring your own amazing tumbler for coffee at Starbucks. I love my Yeti!
Don’t wrap presents in one-time wrapping paper. Instead use re-usable gift bags.
8. Crafts & More
Reuse packaging, paper and shipping containers for fun crafts and science experiencements with the kids!

Swap your toilet paper for this eco-friendly brand.
