Please Share Your Top Sustainable Products and Companies This Earth Day
Each year since 1970, we’ve celebrated Earth Day on April 22. Earth Day was founded by a U.S. senator from Wisconsin named Gaylord Nelson, who wanted to bring awareness to the public about rising air and water pollution.
Today, Earth Day is celebrated in over 100 countries. It is a great day for reflection about daily decisions we make that impact the environment. As we all know, sustainable living is now easier than ever. What I love about this movement is that it compels us to share information with each other. I would like to share some of my favorite sustainable products from companies that are consciously making a difference. These are products that I personally use daily, and I’m making an effort to incorporate new ones weekly. I would love if you would leave a comment here and share yours.
