What are your plans for Earth Day? Will you be celebrating by spending time in nature? Maybe you’ve been thinking about starting a vegetable garden or planting some flowers – check out some great ways to save our pollinators below. Another great resource – Earthley has put together this wonderful FREE guide on how to grow your own food, stock your pantry, preserve food for long-term storage, and easily compost your food waste! If you’re looking for a way to make your own compost barrel, check out my husband’s demo of how we made our own here!

Something else not to miss this week – to celebrate Earth Day, the entire Earthley website is discounted 15% off now through this Friday (4/22). Just use code EARTHDAY22 for the discount at checkout. They offer free shipping on orders of $50 or more AND there is a 30 day money back guarantee on every product, so you really have nothing to lose. Below are just a few reasons I love Earthley and their commitment to non-toxic products that are also sustainable.

Below are some of my Earthley favorites, but feel free to reach out on Instagram or comment below with any questions you might have about what they offer. Their products range from herbal remedies to home care, body/skin/hair, baby care, and nutritional supplements. I also love that their website clearly describes the ingredients in each product and safety (suitable for what ages, pregnancy/breastfeeding, etc).

Feel Better Fast is my go to when I start to feel like I’m coming down with something. It tastes good enough to take by itself, but you can also mix it with juice if you prefer.
Immune Aid powder is a great whole food source of VItamin C that I take daily. Much more effective than synthetic vitamins and easier for your body to absorb.
Soothing Skin Balm is great for skin issues from eczema to dry skin to psioriasis
Black Drawing Salve has helped me when I’ve had splinters, and is also great to have on hand for bug bites, rashes and acne.
All Purpose Salve is the first Earthley product I ran out of because I used it so much! Burns, cuts, scrapes, rashes and even chapped lips! It really helps to apply this when you cut yourself shaving.
Mineral Deodorant – I was skeptical of this after trying about 20 other brands of natural deodorant that all left me with rashes or smelling funky at the end of the day. This one keeps me fresh without any rash, and also provides extra Magnesium which my body desperately needs!
Sinus Saver – if you suffer from seasonal allergies, this is a game changer. Can help with itchy eyes and nasal drainage. Comes in an alcohol free version as well.

Interested in other ways to live more sustainably?

Look into replacing your single use plastic water bottles with a water purifier bottle like this one. We take this with us camping and hiking – it can safely filter any water source in less than one minute just using pressure. Even if you’re not a big outdoor person, it’s great to have in case of emergency.

How about switching from foil or plastic wrap to these reusable beeswax food wraps? I use these to keep our leftovers fresh!

Instead of using single use cutlery on the go, make a small investment in this reusable bamboo set. Great for road trips, picnics, camping and even flights.

What’s one thing you enjoy doing or would like to start doing to live more sustainably? It can be as simple as making an effort to recycle each week. Let me know in the comments.

Thanks for reading and happy Earth week!
