5 eco-friendly products to show Mother Earth how much we care

It is more important than ever that we do everything possible to look after our planet. Remember that story by Loren Eiseley about the child and the starfish? The boy is walking along the shore throwing washed-up starfish back into the ocean when a passerby remarks that the boy’s efforts can’t make a difference. The boy ponders the remark, picks up another starfish, gently tosses it back into the sea, and kindly replies, “It made a difference for that one.” The point is that a seemingly small gesture can have a profound impact. Every small effort we make as individuals may seem as though it couldn’t possibly matter, but the effects could be enormous. The smallest changes of our todays can mean massive changes for our tomorrows. 

We’ve compiled a list of products that are not only eco-friendly but also easy to incorporate into daily life. We all have tremendous potential to make a difference; the plight of our beautiful Mother Earth is in our hands.
