BYO (Bring Your Own)!

April 16, 2016

We're dedicated to helping you live more sustainably. We’re asking our friends to make three simple changes in their daily habits starting today. Are you ready to get closer to zero waste in your life?

Habit #1: bring your own bag

Chico Bags
Did you know that a typical year of single-use plastic bags for one shopper is about 500 bags — all of which overflow our landfills and clog our oceans? Tame your "bag monster" and always carry your own!

Habit #2: bring your own towel

People Towels
Check out these 100% organic fair-trade cotton reusable squares that can help put an end to the 3,000 tons of paper towel waste in the United States that ends up in a landfill each day. Stop waste before it starts.

Habit #3: bring your own water bottle

Liberty Bottles
Kick the plastic water bottle habit and carry these U.S.-made recycled aluminum bottles to stay hydrated.

Let's make a difference this Earth Day — and every day after. Tell us in the comments below what you're doing for the planet and share with our readers tips and tricks that help you get closer to a zero-waste lifestyle!
