In a ‘All About Me’ society where the focus is not simple living, finding companies that practice sustainability is humbling. And knowing every choice made affects someone or something has a sobering effect as to living more mindful. Yet can a dryer ball really change the world?
YES, Here’s How……
A company called B & N Naturals is making a BIG impact on Nepalese women by creating employment in a safe working environment. Each dryer ball is hand-made by a Nepalese woman in return. The end result for these women, living in a third world country, is a job that matters!
And if one California company can choose to have an impact on the world, how much more can our everyday consumer choices make a difference?
With enough sustainable companies that are choosing more ethical ways to practice, our food, clothing, and resource purchases can be made wisely.
Here Are A Few Other Companies Having A BIG IMPACT:
- Wild Planet
- Hippo Sak
- If You Care
- Malaysian Palm Oil
- Pact Organic
Not only are these companies providing employment, for those in other countries, they are EMPOWERING individuals through FAIR-TRADE.
What exactly is Fair-Trade?
“Fair Trade is a global movement made up of a diverse network of producers, companies, shoppers, advocates, and organizations putting people and planet first. … A choice for Fair Trade Certified™ goods is a choice to support responsible companies, empower farmers, workers, and fishermen, and protect the environment.”
Being a ‘conscious consumer’ can be a bit overwhelming. However, starting in small ways will eventually lead to bigger changes.
Some Ideas Include:
- Cloth Napkins
- Re-Usable Paper Products Or Buying Products Made From Corn
- Composting Food Scraps
- Eliminating Plastic Baggies
- Using Cloth Bags When Shopping
- Buying Organic Food As Much As Possible
- ‘Green-Living’ Clothing Purchases, Linens, & Other Household Goods
First changing a ‘conscious consumer’ mindset is how to be an effective agent of change. The IMPORTANCE of knowing how companies source their products is second. And if a dryer ball can help change the world, how much more YOU as the consumer will do.
What a powerful way to have a lasting effect on future generations, KNOWLEDGE IS KEY!
