If A Dryer Ball Can Change The World, So Can You

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
  • Prana
  • Hippo Sak
  • If You Care
  • Malaysian Palm Oil
  • Natierra
  • Pact Organic
  • DermaE

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!
