 Today’s Action: Switch out your products for a healthier planet!

Regardless of whether or not those in power stand up for the planet, it’s essential that we all do our part to reduce waste and pollution. There are already so many small businesses doing the work to ensure sustainable options for everyday products, check out some from this guide and see what you can swap out in your own household!

One of the most important aspects of sustainable living is going zero-waste. That means no single-use bottles, paper products, or most mainstream cleaning methods. You can check out this guide to creating a natural cleaning kit here, but here are some basics to get you started:

  • Simple ingredients and refillable bottles from places like EarthHero and Zero Waste Store are the way to go! Opt for biodegradable paper towels, compostable parchment paper, and products that can be recycled.
  • If you can, making your own cleaning products is one of the best ways to reduce waste. The Kitchen Chemist’s guide and Wild Minimalist have great zero-waste recipes to try!
  • Supporting your local farmer, community agriculture, and considering something like a “food forest” are great ways to help the planet and encourage sustainable eating.
  • Reusable menstrual products like period underwear, biodegradable toothbrushes, plastic free soaps and shampoos, and non-toxic deodorant can help you create a waste-free bathroom.

The average American tosses almost 5 pounds of trash every day. That’s 3 pounds more than the global average, and amounts to a whopping 268 million tons annually. If every person who reads this newsletter works to make even a slight change, it would make a huge difference.

The past few years have produced severe, record-breaking weather events that are only getting worse. Unprecedented mass destruction from tornadoes, wildfires, and flooding these past few years have displaced hundreds of thousands of working families — all while corporations and legislators are continuing to largely ignore and evade these existential environmental issues. We can’t wait around for those in power to take the first step.


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.
