Save Some Green by Going Green: A Beginner’s Guide to Sustainability

Looking to clean up your lifestyle, but are overwhelmed with where to begin? Here are four simple swaps to incorporate zero-waste practices into your life for a sustainable, greener you!

  1. Plastic water bottles are the biggest resident at landfills, the way they are manufactured is harmful to the environment, and they are not biodegradable. All the more reason to make the jump from plastic water bottles to stainless steel. Best part about this swap? Save dollars by refilling your bottle instead of buying, it’s a win, win!
  2. Money saving switch alert! Cutting down on paper towel usage by utilizing cloth towels for your daily mess clean ups makes it environmentally (and budget) savvy by reducing paper waste.
  3. Go paperless! With the wave of technology comes the ability to track bills on your phone. Not only does having everything in one place aide with organization, it won’t waste paper each month.
  4. Say goodbye to BPAs by switching plastic food containers with glass jars. Avoid contamination and utilize one of the most recyclable materials.

Tip: Glass jars have multiple functions from décor to being a vessel for your salad concoctions and overnight oat creations, making them a staple in any household!

Creating a sustainable life doesn’t happen overnight. It is about making little, conscious changes every day. At Seed Phytonutrients our products are eco-friendly, with recycled paper packaging that is both biodegradable and water resistant.
