Choosing eco-friendly products is not always easy, and I’ll be honest, I have not been good about recommending them here on P&P nor have I made enough of an effort to incorporate these items into my every day life. But I’m amending that now!
Putting my everyday dollars, meaning the money I would normally spend on household and personal goods, towards options that are more eco-friendly and brands that are striving to be more environmentally conscious is something I can do today to reduce my negative impact!
As I discuss in this post about strategies for going green, clothing and plastics are two of our biggest problems contributing to greenhouse gases and environmental damage. Making some simple swaps to avoid plastic packaging and support brands using recycled materials and organic fabrics, is easily done if we know where to shop and what to shop for!
