Make Every Day Greener With These Cool Earth-Friendly Products In 2020

With Earth day around the corner it is the perfect time to think about making every day greener by getting into the habit of using environmentally friendly products and materials each and every day. It is the perfect way to bring awareness and reduce our carbon footprint and help us uphold our role as keepers of the planet and its water. Even the smallest of gestures can add up and make a huge impact on the environment….whether it be that you are choosing to use recycled goods, use natural cleaning products, or finding ways to ditch plastic products and bags and instead buying reusable items (or biodegradable ones) made with sustainable, all natural materials. Every little thing that we do every day adds up and it all makes a huge impact.

This shopping list of cool, resuable eco-friendly products that I have fallen in love with will help you to ditch the plastic baggies and packaging, clean with the power of probiotics, stay warm with recycled products made in the USA and more — all in the name of being more environmentally friendly.

3) Jack & Mary Designs Go USA Mittens

Jack & Mary makes artfully crafted accessories from recycled sweaters and each and every item on their site is fabulous! I fell in love with the fact that their gorgeous products are made from recycled sweaters and most especially because they are crafted right here in the USA in Maine! They have a selection of products ready to purchase and they also have a REWEAR shop which is perfect for anyone that has a drawer full of sweaters that they do not wear anymore OR that maybe you have a snag in. If this applies to you then you can take advantage of Jack & Mary Designs REWEAR shop and instead of tossing your old sweaters out…. you can send them to Jack & Mary Designs and they will recycle your old sweaters into beautiful mittens and more!

I picked up a pair of Jack & Mary Designs Go USA Mittens as I have a Navy Wool Peacoat that I knew these would be perfect for and with my growing up in a huge military family, I always love wearing anything Red, White & Blue!

These gorgeously crafted mittens went well above my expectations! These are crafted beautifully and I will cherish them forever! These Jack & Mary mittens are created from recycled wool sweaters, lined with cozy fleece and finished with a button. The wonderful mittens are extremely cozy and warm and are the perfect size for a females hands.

      Karen the benefits are the probiotics keep cleaning for up to 3 days PLUS they eat the dirt and grime deep in the groove sunlike traditional cleaners….even cleaners with bleach! Of… and it is biodegradable and sustainable meaning it is not bad for the planet and water supply.

    Great tips! My family and I are working on reducing our waste as well, I already was using only washable containers for my kids lunches and now we’ve switched to reusable water bottles only vs buying them, and have stopped using plastic bags from the store. It has already made a big noticeable different in the amount of waste we produced.
