WHY Take the #SwitchtoSustainable Challenge?

Living a more sustainable lifestyle will help reduce waste in our personal environments, as well as our global environments, thus restoring a balance to our planet {that is MUCH needed}.

We need your help in order to make an impact and undo some of the damage we’ve done.  Together when we take baby steps to living more sustainably we create the change we so desire.  If every single one of us just made 1 switch, it would make a HUGE difference; for our generation, all generations to come & for our Planet! Let’s do THIS!

Get Informed! Be Part of the solution!

Switch Ideas:

  • Switch from plastic disposable diapers to cloth diapers. Even one diaper switched for cloth per day can save 365 disposable diapers per year from landfills!
  • Use recycled materials where you can.  Are you a business that ships packages?  Commit to reusing packing supplies like mailers, boxes, bags and bubble wrap!
  • Switch items with plastic material to more sustainable materials (glass, stainless steel, wood, clay, fabric, aluminum, etc.)  Reusable snack bags and sandwich wraps are affordable and easy to care for!
  • Buy some re-usable stainless steel or glass water bottles instead of plastic ones.  Reusable bottles typically keep drinks colder and/or hotter for longer so don’t delay, make the switch!
  • Buy some re-usuable stainless steel or glass food containers.  Glass containers are more durable than you think and are microwave safe!
  • Buy in BULK, taking your re-usable containers in to fill up. I LOVE this bc I don’t have to transfer my bulk items to containers after I get home..I just unload from the car straight into the pantry…reduces time!
  • Choose to Reuse. Reuse Containers and other items where you can.  Reusable shopping bags are popular and super affordable.  Ditch those plastic bags and switch to reusable shopping bags once and for all!

Feel free to switch as MANY things as you’d like (just don’t overwhelm yourselves!). Baby Steps Peeps! Don’t stress or get all “perfectionist” like I do! I know it can be intimidating sometimes, so just focus on your one little baby step. (:::

Plastic Free July (the organization that started it all), has their Challenge that we highly recommend doing. You can find more info. on it & sign up HERE:

Check out what Beth Terry of My Plastic-free Life & Ecology Center are doing in the Bay Area, CA all month long as well!
