Making small changes can have a big impact! Each of these little changes helps reduce trash, yes, but they also help us make healthier decisions. Many of them reduce the amount of plastic we use in a day. That helps reduce demand for fossil fuels, cuts down on pollution, and is better for your health. We're all for it! If this feels like a lot of changes at once, consider making one change at a time until they all feel normal. #becausehealth #simpleswaps #smallchanges #environmentalhealth #plasticfreeliving #plasticfree #zerowaste #littlechanges ------------------------------------------------------- The people who make the biggest difference are the ones who do the little things consistently 🌎 Here are 7 little “decisions” you can make to change your lifestyle this week.

But, today, we also want to recognize all of our veterans who have worked to protect us so that we are able to live in these environments. Thank you!

In honor of being half a year old, we want to check in with you all - after all, that's why we do what we do! We've put together a short survey (seriously, we didn't want to write a long list of questions either), so that we can collect some input form you all. What do you like about what we do, what burning questions do you have that we haven't answered yet, what do we do that annoys you? Be honest! We want to make sure we're actually being a helpful resource. So, if you are waiting for your friend somewhere and want to look busy, or are just chilling on your (flame retardant free 😉 ) couch and just have a free minute, we would really appreciate your feedback. We'll keep the survey up until the end of next week, but please fill it out now, 'cause hey, you're already here. The live link is in our bio today, or you can find the survey here: https://goo.gl/forms/dVy2LtfYe1AKf0yC2 Thank you in advance!

So while we sip our coffee (from our ceramic mugs - of course!) we want to share a little about what that means for us. To us, environmental health has to do with how things in our environment can affect our health. This is about more than just saving the trees and making sure the oceans aren't full of plastic straws. We 100% support those things, but we also recognize that the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the products we buy all play a big role in our health, too. We want to make sure all of those are healthy and support us in living our best life, no matter what that means.
So, today, we are taking a minute just to think about what we consider to be our environment (big and small) and thinking of ways we can make them healthier. We are choosing to make one decision today that improves how our environments impact our health. Ours was using a real mug and skipping the food packaging (okay, that was two things, but hey, it's kind of our job, right?), what is yours?

" That's pretty blunt and kind of scary. Especially when you keep reading and find out it's because sperm counts are falling, fast. They lay out a lot of different reason why and most of them come back to the environment we are living in today. While that sounds even worse, based on some research we've done, we know that small changes to your routine (both in men themselves and women who might have sons at some point) can help make a change for the better. Two easy changes: 1. Switch from plastic food storage containers and water bottles to ones made of glass, stainless steel, or ceramic. Clean your home more often by dusting with a microfiber cloth and vacuuming. Both are pretty easy and can reduce the amount of contact you have with chemicals that mess with hormone levels. Sperm levels may be on a downward trend, but the trend doesn't have to keep going down. Little changes can have a big impact on health. Thank you, GQ, for bringing this topic to a bigger audience.
Happy Earth Day! No matter how or where you celebrate today, choose to protect the places we all live, work, and play.
