10 Products My Family Uses to Be More Earth-Friendly
You might think being eco-friendly is basically impossible, but while, yes, it's difficult to actually implement green practices into our daily lives, a tiny change in your routine can make a difference in the environment. Take this statistic: the United States generated 38.5 million tons of trash in 2018, and that number is projected to rise. That daunting fact might make you think "I give up," but believe us when we say this planet really needs you to think "it all starts with me."
Small changes can create a shift in perspective that trickles down to the people around you — in my case, that's my kids and family. I'm not the perfect eco-friendly living example, but by implementing small actions and habits into my family's life that support sustainability, I'm molding my kids to follow healthy habits, so that hopefully they'll grow up being mindful of the waste they've created and how to reduce it.
For us, the changes started with a few product switches that support less plastic and chemical use, as well as waste. Here are our favorite environmentally friendly picks.
