Living a sustainable lifestyle doesn't have to be difficult. There are small changes you can make at home that have a big impact on the environment. From reducing your carbon footprint to conserving water and energy, there are many ways to make your home more eco-friendly. In this blog post, let's explore 10 easy eco-friendly swaps you can make at home to live a more sustainable life!


Switch to led lightbulbs 

LED lightbulbs are more energy-efficient and have a longer lifespan than traditional incandescent bulbs. By switching to LED bulbs, you save on your energy bill while reducing your carbon footprint.


Use reusable grocery bags

Over 15 billion plastic checkout bags are used in Canada each year. By using reusable grocery bags, you can reduce the amount of plastic waste in our landfills and oceans.


Switch to cloth napkins

Instead of using paper napkins, opt for cloth napkins. They're not only more durable and can be reused multiple times, reducing your impact on the environment.


Use a reusable water bottle 

Instead of buying single-use plastic water bottles, invest in reusable ones. This can help reduce plastic waste and save you money in the long run.


Plant your own herbs and vegetables

Rather than buying herbs and vegetables in plastic packaging at the store, plant your own. Not only will this provide a sustainable option, but you'll have fresh veggies at home for cooking! Here are some seeds to start this April if you're in South Coastal British Columbia and the US Pacific Northwest.



Instead of throwing away food waste, compost it. This can help reduce the amount of waste in landfills and provide nutrients for your beautiful garden.


Use natural light 

Bask in natural light ✨ Instead of relying on artificial light, take advantage of natural light in your home. Open blinds and curtains during the day to let in the sunshine.


Choose bar soap over liquid soap

Swap out liquid soap for bar soap. This transition not only reduces your plastic usage, and it's also better for your skin! Especially if you have sensitive skin, our 01/ RICE Gentle Body Soap made with deeply hydrating Rice Bran Oil, is a great choice. 


Opt for natural cleaning products 

Many cleaning products contain a long list of toxic chemicals that are harmful to you and the environment. Switch to eco-friendly cleaning products, or make your own! All you need is equal parts of water and white distilled vinegar, a few drops of essential oils of your choice and a spray bottle. Combine and shake well before use. 


Hang your clothes to dry 

Instead of using a dryer, hang your clothes to dry. This can help reduce your energy bill and ensure your clothes last longer.
