This month we celebrate National Earth Day on April 22nd. I love trying products that not only help reduce waste but also cost. We try to purchase products that will help us long term.
Since we are coming up on Earth Day, I thought this would be a good time to share 5 of the affordable, sustainable, and reusable products we use around our house.

Produce Bags- are a great way to reduce the use of plastic in your home. Produce bags travel easily through the wind and end up stuck on fences and can litter our land, freeways, waterways, and even end up in our ocean. I highly recommend adding these bags to your reusable bag collection and using them when you grocery shop.
Reusable Sandwich bags- We always have reusable sandwich bags on hand and love to use them over and over. Sandwich bags save us so much in Ziplock bags. Interestingly enough, when you think about how many uses your ziplock bag gets; it becomes disturbing. Think about it- You use your bag ONCE. Does this seem so wasteful when you think of it this way??
Mason Jars - Mason jars are very versatile and can be used for years and years. Mason Jars can be used to create salads, dressings, and dips. Their usage doesn't stop there. Mason Jars can also be used to store foods you want to keep airtight and you can even take them to the grocery store to get your bulk items. This saves you a bag AND time!
Bread bags- If you have followed along with me you know I LOVE making bread. Keeping my bread fresh can be tricky. I don't love using plastic bags so we have found bread bags helpful.
Bees Wax - Bee's was sheets are another great way to keep food fresh. We also love wrapping our bread in beeswax sheets which have been a game-changer! Don't stop there, the bee's wax sheets can help keep a lot of food fresh. Try It!!
