Easy Environmentally-Friendly Habit Swaps You Can Make to Say Thanks to Mother Nature
Here at Indie Lee, we believe in paying it forward. Whether that be through acts of kindness, through empowering others by creating a clean beauty collection, or making small but significant changes. We love giving back to Mother Nature through easy everyday changes that have can make a huge difference for our planet. Below are some of our favorite sustainable practices.
Say No To Plastic Straws and Yes to Reusable Ones: A great way to thank Mother Nature is to reduce your single use waste, such as simply saying ‘hold the straw’. If you like enjoying a nice smoothie or cold beverage with a straw like us, we’d recommend Indie’s favorite, Hummingbird Glass Straws or this sustainable bamboo alternative.
Bring a Reusable Water Bottle When You Go Out: By carrying a reusable water bottle with you, you’ll reduce plastic waste and save money, since you won’t have to buy individual and sometimes overpriced bottles of water. We like the tried and true S'well and BKR bottles, or if you’re looking to splurge, we definitely crushing on these Gem Bottles.
Bring Your Own Shopping Bag to the Grocery Store: Find a cute reusable tote and bring it with you when you head out for groceries. You’ll help the planet out by refusing plastic bags. We love this string bag option, it’s also great for carrying produce from your local farmer’s market.
Pack a Lunch: Bringing your own lunch not only saves you money, but also reduces wasted. By packing in a cute reusable to go container like this adorable Prepd Pack, you’ll cut down on single use food packaging and cutlery from takeout restaurants.
We hope you try these simple sustainable swaps and we promise, the planet will thank you!
