Earth day is just around the corner. It’s Sunday April 22nd, to be exact. While you may think being eco friendly can be hard at times, there are stores like Lavish & Lime (one of my favorite Canadian Eco friendly online shops) that makes green living easy.
Nearly everything we use in our homes has an Eco friendly alternative. Everything from chemical free nail polish, to bags made out of cotton and mesh for fruits and veggies, to recycled journals. When shopping at online stores like Lavish & Lime, it’s really easy to see where we can make simple changes that are better for our environment.
One area that we could really make a big difference in our waste is in lunch gear. In my family, it’s just my husband and I that take lunches to work everyday. Soon enough, we will also be sending Princess Picky Eater to school, which will mean 3 packed lunches each day. With just a few simple changes to your daily routine, you and the kids can eliminate a lot of material which is usually thrown out. Reusable lunch bags or lunch containers, reusable sandwich wraps and snack pouches, and reusable glass water bottles and heck why not even get stainless steal straws (we have them at home and use them all the time). Otherwise, the plastic bags, plastic wrap, and plastic water water bottles would be thrown out each and every day times 3 or 4 or more depending how many lunches are made each day. Even in my current situation, between hubster and I, we make 520 lunches for work in a year, once Princess I don’t want to grow up starts school our little family of 3 will be making 780 lunches in a year.
We really have to remember this is the only world we have and we are responsible for the outcome. These little changes can really make a huge impact on the future of our world.
