Green this, green that.
You’ve probably heard a lot of people talking in recent years about making their home more green. And if you’re like many people, the entire process is a bit overwhelming. Where do you even start?
I’m a firm believer in turtle steps. Now, if you’re the type that goes all in, that’s fantastic! However, not everyone is like that and when it comes to any goal that you set in life, forward steps are the way to go, even if it feels like they’re tiny steps.
You can start with no longer buying plastic straws. Invest in reusable steel straws. You could stop buying bottled water from grocery stores and fill up your bottles with filtered water at home. You can also grow your own food, even if it’s just kale and squash.
Another great way to help the environment can be done in the laundry room. I recently began using Earth Breeze Eco Strips and I’m so happy with this switch.
These strips lighten the load on the environment and are as sensitive to your skin as it is to the environment.
I have to be honest, I was skeptical when I first received my package of Earth Breeze Eco Strips. I opened the bag and thought, “these look pretty similar to dryer sheets. How are they going to clean my laundry?”. I became a fan pretty quickly.
One sheet is enough for one load of laundry. Dirtier clothes? Use 2 sheets. Just drop them in the washer before adding your clothes and they dissolve in the wash and clean your clothes. I use the Fresh Scent and it smells so good.
After looking into the company itself, I learned some cool facts about them. Earth Breeze believes that there’s a better way to do laundry. They wanted to create a sustainable and green solution to the laundry industry that is not only better for the environment but is also better for your clothes.
The packaging is zero waste and requires about 94% less carbon emissions to transport. Laundry is a necessity of life and there IS a better way to do it.
1 pack is $20 but if you subscribe, it will only cost $12!
Some other cool facts about Earth Breeze Eco Strips:
- You can bury the packaging of Earth Breeze as compost 🙂
- You can use Earth Breeze for manual hand washing too. Just soak the eco-sheets in water first.
- Saved 750,000 plastic detergent jugs
- Kept 562,436 pounds of plastic out of landfills and our oceans
- Planted 14,135 trees
- 6 beach cleanups
This really is a no-brainer way to make your home more green.
