Earth day, every day! Our founder & mama, Jenefer Palmer and our CEO, Melissa Palmer share some simple tips to reduce waste and live more sustainably.
Jenefer: Ditch plastic water bottles + baggies.
Prevent hundreds of single-use plastic containers from entering our oceans and landfills by using reusable bottles and food storage containers.
Melissa: Upcycle your empties.
Empty OSEA glass containers can be upcycled into planters, salad dressing dispensers, votive candle holders and more!
Jenefer: Subscribe to a local CSA box.
Get locally grown seasonal fruits and veggies–delivered straight to your door! You’ll be supporting local farmers, reducing your carbon footprint, and eating well!
Melissa: Regrow your veggies in water–without any dirt at all.
Cut off the bottoms of your green veggies and place in a small bowl of water. New growth begins from the center of the plant in as little as 3 days and you’ll have a new half head of lettuce in about 2 weeks! Also makes for a fun homeschool project with kids!
Jenefer: Streamline your routine and keep it clean.
Using multipurpose products cuts down on your shower time. I’m a bather, but when I must shower, I use Ocean Cleanser to cleanse and exfoliate. Steer clear of products with synthetic fragrance that may harm both your body and the earth when rinsed down the drain.
Melissa: Move away from fast fashion.
Fast fashion has been rated as the second worst industry for the planet, right behind fossil fuel. Take baby steps and invest in a few ethically made clothing pieces that last. Some of my favorites: Christy Dawn, Reformation, Outerknown and Patagonia!
