Eco-friendly. Organic. These might just sound like nice words or soundbites, but they mean something. They indicate products (and often companies) that have taken another step to ensure they’re leaving the smallest impact on the world as they can – while still delivering quality and affordability.
Did you realize that we create 139.6 million tons of garbage in the US each year? Wowsa. That’s a lot of trash, and there’s really not a lot of space to put it. Landfills are ever-expanding, but the options for recycling (at least where I’m at) aren’t keeping up the pace. Still, we work to recycle, reduce, and reuse as often as possible. We ride our bikes or walk instead of driving in order to decrease our carbon footprint. I reuse sandwich bags and use reusable bags at the grocery store to do a little bit more to help the environment. And when I forget my reusable bags? I use those dang plastic bags on walks with my dog. I know they’re still terrible, but it’s a tiny way to try to do something productive with them.
To celebrate companies and products that are working to help the environment, we compiled a list of our top products from a variety of categories. We looked for items that use natural ingredients, organically-sourced materials, or are using recycled items to create something new. As we looked, we were overwhelmed with the choices and were delighted with the options we found.
