Eco-Friendly Alternatives to These Household Staples

You can lower your waste and increase your sustainability with these eco-friendly alternatives to household staples.

Confession: my household throws so much away. We’re only two people, but we manage to fill an entire recycling bin every week, not to mention multiple trash bags. If there’s one thing we know how to do in this house, it’s throw away… stuff.

But we’re trying to change. Even though a couple months have gone by and the Marie Kondo konmari craze has mostly evaporated, we still find ourselves asking, “Does this bring me joy?” about stuff in our lives. And the answer is usually no. Today I decided to start asking myself, “Does the trash you put out every week bring you joy?” It doesn’t. It just brings guilt.

So if you want to stop asking yourself, “Why did I buy this thing just to throw it away?” and you want to start living a more eco-friendly lifestyle, these are some great products to help kick-start that journey.
