opt for natural fibers.πŸ‘–πŸŒΎπŸŒ

today we will

choose natural fibers.
WHY Synthetic fibers are made of plastic, so when washed/discarded, micro plastic pollutes our water. We will reduce water plastic by choosing natural fibers.

HOW Look at the labels inside garments — most say which fabrics are used. Opt for those with natural fibers like cotton, linen, or hemp. Here's a list of synthetics to avoid.

opt for fragrance-free.

today we will

opt for fragrance-free.
(unless it's 100%, 100% natural.)

 
WHY 80-90% of synthetic fragrances are made of petroleum*...like, the stuff used to fuel car engines. We will reduce our dependence on oil by avoiding fragrant products.
*Those made from natural oils only not included. But, be careful, companies don't have to list all ingredients.

HOW From perfumes to detergents, we can choose fragrant-free products. Or, those without petroleum-derived ingredients on this list
From Subscriber Gabrielle M. on this tip:
"Hi! Would be so helpful to outline exactly what is considered a soft plastic. I want to make sure I'm not contaminating the recycling batch, which is a real issue."

TWW Response:
Of course! Great idea. Here are two resources that I hope are helpful:
One from
Plastic Film Recycling Org.
Another from
NY Government website.

Hope this is helpful!

not eat meat on Mondays.

today we will

not eat meat.
WHY Raising factory farm cattle is one of the top contributors to global warming*. Let's join the positive impact of  #meatlessmonday and help slow global warming.
*With the exception of holistic management.

HOW Order or cook meals without meat. Peanut butter bagel or oatmeal for breakfast. Falafel or hearty seed salad for lunch. Quinoa bowl for dinner. More inspiration here.
From two subscribers on this tip:

Joy C.
"Also add one part white vinegar to three parts water when washing [produce]. This will remove mold spores and keep your produce fresher longer so there is less fFood waste. A quick rinse after washing will get rid of any vinegar taste."

Sarah S.
"I wanted to share that in addition to washing my veggies like this, I will also add salt to the water to remove any pesticides for when I can't find organic (or my budget doesn't allow it). I've read that it's more effective than rinsing under the tap when it comes to nonorganic produce."

Thank you for sharing, Joy and Sarah!

not idle our cars. πŸš™

today we will

not idle our cars.
WHY 3.8 millions gallons of gas are wasted on idling in the US...every day. That's 34,000 tons of CO2*. We will reduce air pollution & our demand for gas by not idling.
*The same CO2 is emitted by burning 36 million pounds of coal.


HOW Turn off our cars when parked for more than 10 seconds. Keep on our coats to stay warm. Note: newer cars don't need as much time to warm up before driving.
