Living the good life + Fighting the good fight

Low-Waste Guide: Helpful Links

My family and I try to live a low-waste lifestyle where we try to reduce our impact on the environment by making simple changes every day. Some of the things we do regularly are detailed in my post, Low-Waste Lifestyle: 7 Easy Changes.

Here is a collection of links to educational resources, products and low-waste stores that me or my loved ones trust. I will update these links as I discover new low-waste goodness.

Please comment with any suggestions of brands, products or stores I need to try!
