As a family of five, we are no stranger to messes and honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way! Messes are a sign of life being well-lived. A messy home is a happy home. Yet, I do find grounding in having a home that is cleansed and refreshed. One of my big intentions for the new year is making this home the ultimate space of comfort + expansion but also help reduce our footprint as a family and produce less waste at home.
It’s not as difficult as it sounds! The goal is to make lots of little daily changes to be more eco-conscious and truly invest in goods and products with more intention. Not everything I have been given or bought in the past have all been sustainable, but in making the shift now to be more mindful of how I consume I can continue to make my home more sustainable!
I’ve recently have fallen in love with the zero-waste company, Well Earth Goods and they’ve been HUGE in helping us slowly make the transition to a sustainable home while still maintaining a clean and comfortable space.
Why zero waste and plastic-free?
I don’t need to be the first to tell you that climate change is a real + scary. It’s so important now more than ever to be part of the solution and not the problem. I want a world that my children’s children can grow up in and experience the beauty of this planet.
I love Well Earth Goods because of its mission to offer great plastic-free products and stir up a movement plus all their goods are gorgeous.
Plastic pollution affects our lives every day and you may not even know it. Plastic is linked to cancers, can impact fertility and kills thousands of marine animals. It’s predicted that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean if we continue our plastic use.
We can become part of the change by using more reusable products, shopping with reusable bags + totes, refusing bags + utensils if you order takeout, and buying more sustainable products in your home to clean up messes!
Well Earth Goods makes it SO easy to stock up your home with zero waste products and best of all, they’re super affordable (I also included my discount code below!). They have everything from personal care to kitchen goods, cleaning tools, and food storage.
Here are some of the products I’ve been absolutely loving!
Wood Dish Brush and Copper Scour Pad - Both of these products fit the aesthetic of my home effortlessly, but also plastic-free. I love that the dish brush is also completely recyclable and compostable!
Storage Produce Bags and Reusable Canvas Tote - The storage bags are so simple and help keep fresh produce for way longer (so needed in my home!). I love the style of the canvas tote, it’s so great for Farmers Markets!
Wooden Toilet Brush - Love the natural look and is entirely non-plastic and compostable.
