Most of us have really good intentions but poor follow through. Many times the lack of commitment is due to inconvenience. We live in a busy world where convenience is a high priority and that is completely understandable. Wowe Lifestyle makes products focused on preserving the planet and helping YOU make a difference. Their 100% eco-friendly products allow you to make small lifestyle changes that can have a big impact. Any of us can commit to one of these baby steps in an effort to make a change in the world.
In the Seattle area where I live, plastic straws have actually been banned. Restaurants, baristas etc. will not give you a straw unless you specifically request one. You can still get them but you’ll have to ask. Reusable straws are a good solution if you prefer to use a straw. I like the Curved Stainless Steel Straws from Wowe Lifestyle. You get 8 stainless steel BPA free straws and 1 Cotton cleaner in a recyclable box. The straws are dishwasher safe and designed to last a lifetime — they will not rust! You can get a set of these straws 50% off with the purchase of anything else from the Wowe Lifestyle website! They also come in “straight” instead of curved if that is more your style. Check out this alarming statistic: In the USA alone we go through 500 million straws every single day or 182.5 billion straws per year. Your small commitment to change can make a big difference. A set of 8 is only $10.97
Another change that I found really easy to make is using a reusable water bottle. We have filtered water at home and with a family of 5, we go through a LOT of water. We each have our own water bottles that we refill as needed to stay hydrated. I really like the Wowe Lifestyle Stainless Steel Water Bottle with Bamboo Top. Stainless steel is my favorite because it’s durable, easy to clean and won’t retain odors should I happen to use it for a beverage other than water. It holds a generous 25 oz and it’s double wall vacuum insulated to keep your hot drinks hot (up to 12 hours) and your cold drinks cold (up to 24 hours). The double wall insulation means it will never be too hot to touch. I love that this bottle is sweat-proof. You won’t get any condensation on the outside of your bottle leaving rings on your coffee table! The bamboo top adds a touch of style to this already cool bottle and keeps your bottle leak proof.
Did you know the average American uses 167 disposable water bottles per year? That adds up to 50 Billion water bottles per year in the US alone. A reusable stainless steel bottle is the way to go. Up to 70% of stainless steel is made from recycled material and is also 100% recyclable. Your Wowe Lifestyle bottle also comes with a lifetime warranty! This is one easy way you can really make an impact and it’s only $28.95
This next product, while great, is one that I have a harder time with but I am going to make a better effort at it! You know those annoying produce bags that are always a pain to open? They are made from fossil fuels. Americans use over 100 Billion of these which means it takes 12 million barrels of oil to create them. We can do better. Wowe Lifestyle Reusable Certified Organic Cotton Mesh Produce Bags come in three sizes and are perfect for fruits and vegetables. They are certified organic by GOTS and can be machine washed. The tare weight is printed on the label so you won’t pay for the weight of your bag at the grocery checkout. Plastic bags make it into the landfills leaking toxins into the ground. Many of them also make it to the ocean killing off over 100,000 marine animals per year. That is a sad statistic! Every plastic bag we can keep from entering the environment makes a difference! For me, that just means making the extra effort to remember to actually BRING my bags to the store and USE them. I’m enlisting my kid’s help. They have a better brain for memory than I do and I know they’d be happy to help with this job considering all the help it’s doing for the environment! Get a set of 6 $12.95 (3 sizes available).
You can feel good shopping at Wowe Lifestyle for a number of reasons, the first being that they are 100% eco-friendly. That’s not all though. All of their packaging is made from 100% recycled material, shipping is free across the US and available on Amazon, and a percentage of sales are donated to One Tree Planted, an organization that plants trees around the world to supplement forest lost. Wowe Lifestyle’s ultimate goal is to reduce the global footprint and preserve all natural resources. You can find out more at www.wowelifestyle.com.
