Trying to live a greener lifestyle can be daunting. I know I sometimes feel like giving up when I think of all the environmental things I should be doing that I'm not. But the truth is, why take an all-or-nothing approach? If we all just do a few small things to lessen our personal carbon footprint, it can add up to some real change. And it's shockingly easy. And cheap!
To get started, I just logged on to Amazon and pulled together this list of 37 low-cost products that can set me off on the path to sustainability. For example, I plan to swap out my bottled shampoo for these luxurious all-natural shampoo bars that last three times as long, cost less and are nourishing for the hair. I'm also going to swap out my disposable baggies for these reusable silicone storage pockets and replace store-provided disposable produce bags with these reusable green bags. And I'm never buying regular Post-its again now that I know they make recycled (and recyclable) ones.
I hope this list helps you find a few simple, affordable ways to green-up your life too.
