We care deeply about the delicate environment we live in, and infuse all of our products with sustainably sourced, nutrient rich ingredients from the sea. Local fishermen sustainably hand-harvest our seaweed in a way that allows it to regenerate and regrow to the same size or larger than we found it within 36 months.
You too can support sustainability in your home.
- Change your lightbulbs to a compact fluorescent light (CFL) or eco-friendly bulb. These bulbs last way longer and are more energy efficient, using about a quarter less energy than regular bulbs. You’ll save more money with these babies because they can last anywhere between eight and fifteen times longer than regular bulbs.
- Compost! Composting is a great way to use your food scraps and enrich the soil in your garden, rather than using fertilizer or plant food. Composting is simple and yields nutrient-rich soil that in turn yield nutrient-rich foods. Our Whole Seaweed Detox Bath also acts as a great fertilizer for your garden because it has more than 65 minerals to enrich the soil. Many soil imbalances can be fixed by seaweed, making it the perfect, natural additive to your soil.
- Replant your food scraps. No, really! You can regrow several typical grocery store items like green onions, celery, mushrooms, ginger, pineapple, and more! Check out our pinterest board for some more ideas on what produce to regrow.
- Buy less, swap more. Instead of buying a new outfit for an upcoming occasion, host a clothing swap with your friends, hit a retail store, or rent something for that special occasion. There are so many options for minimizing your impact and contributing to “fast fashion”. Companies like Rent the Runway offer a variety of clothing styles for women for any occasion. Resale websites like ThredUp also exist for selling your old clothes or buying other people’s clothes. By using what’s out there already reduces the demand for fast fashion and textile waste.
Use solar power. If you can and are ready to make the initial investment, add solar paneling to your home. The cost of solar panels have dropped in the last several years, but can still cost quite a bit up front. However, according to Houzz contributor and Forbes writer, Christine Tusher, “Solar panels can decrease your household’s carbon footprint by an average of 35,180 pounds of carbon dioxide per year.” Bonus: People who install solar panels may qualify for federal or city tax breaks. Not ready to make the investment or live in an apartment? No worries, there are other ways to incorporate solar power in your day-to-day life. For instance, charge your electronics using a solar-powered charger. This window charger is easy to stick on a window in your office or the window of an airplane when traveling. There are also solar powered walkway lights and solar-powered hanging string lights to spruce up your porch or patio.
How do you incorporate sustainability into your lifestyle?
