14 Easy Eco-Friendly Swaps

Climate change is real and Mother Earth seriously needs our help.


Over the past couple of years, I have been reading up and watching many shows about the environmental crisis we are currently facing. I'll save you some time and say it is SCARY. I have found that the more I learn, the harder it is to ignore. So much so, that I find myself often getting angry at people when I see them take too many paper towels or even drinking out of a plastic water bottle. Now I realize that I cannot be the great, Greta Thunberg, out there fighting for the environment everyday, but I can still try and make a difference in my own little way.


Below are 14 easy eco-friendly switches I have made in my personal life that I know you can do too. My actions alone might not be enough to make a dent in solving the climate crisis but the more people who take action, the closer we will be to making a change.


1. Plastic Toothbrush --> Bamboo Toothbrush

2. Single-use Cotton Rounds --> Reusable Facial Rounds
