That may sound sort of cold, but I actually feel it's hopeful. We have power to make change. Complaining won't do it, our politicians won't do it, but money talks. Every time you buy a toothbrush you are voting. And others are watching. With a postive influence you can show people how easy it is to make better choices. People want to make choices that feel good, they often just don't know how or aren't shopping conciously. And if you have someone on your shopping list for this Christmas that is plant based or environmentally concious I've made up a list of alternatives for you to consider the next time you take out your credit card. Check them out below!
- The Bamboo Toothbrush
- Swisspers Cotton Swabs, Cotton Balls & Makeup Remover
- Wooden Hair Comb
- Coolmax Performance Socks
- Altra Running Shoes or Topo Running Shoes
- Lip Balm
- Tooth Floss
- Green Beaver Personal Care Products
- Dom's Deodorant
- Vegan Men's Clothing
- Vegan Purses, Wallets, and Bags
Full disclosure, I haven't tried all of these products, because I don't use some of them in my life, but I've either bought them as gifts, used them personally or have had them recommended by someone I trust. I've chosen quality products rather than disposable ones that will end up in the trash quickly. I tend to believe in purchasing things that last and trying to buy from local vendors. Many of these products are available where you live in health food stores, or ethical local retailers. Since I'm big on running I often visit this website for updated lists on what runnig shoe brands have vegan options in addition to the two brands above which are always vegan. I have no referral bonuses for you clicking through on any of the links, and no affiliation with any of the companies above.
