Put $200 a month or more back in your family budget!
Mother Nature understands you put climate change on the back burner because you have a more pressing problem. Inflation! It can cost a family of 4 an extra $560 a month just to keep up. So, families buy less, Drive less. Spend less.
That’s why I created Mama Nature’s Inflation Recovery Act. You can save an extra $100-200 a month just by making simple changes in your daily activities.
From changing what you eat, to energy proofing your home, to living an eco-friendlier life, small, simple changes in your daily activities can make a big difference. Your children will reap rewards from the collective effort of everyone who treats Mama Nature as kindly as you do.
Of course, even if you can’t take advantage of all Ma Nature’s Savings, and just do half of them, you can still save over $125/month.
Remember, start small, do what you can. Every little thing you do gets multiplied by millions of other Americans who want to leave their children a safer, healthier, world.
Kick Your Paper Towel Habit
Over 13 billion pounds of paper towels are used each year in the U.S. Most paper towel waste winds up in landfills where they generate methane, a greenhouse gas 23 times more harmful than carbon dioxide.
Consider using more sustainable options instead of paper towels --like microfiber cloths, cloth towels, and sponges made from recycled materials.
If you find you can’t do without paper towels, then 100% recycled is the best option. If every household in the US swapped just 1 roll of regular paper towels with 100% recycled, it would save 54,000 trees.
“I know the savings is small. Only $5.70/month. But you’re doing it for the children. Climate change is about leaving children a safer, healthier, less polluted world.”
The Math The Got Us There:
According to data collected from Statista based on the U.S. Census data and Simmons National Consumer Survey (NHCS)**, the majority of U.S. households, 111.4 million people, use an average of 6 paper towel rolls per month.
8 cloth towels for $13.00 at Amazon. Average roll of paper towels at Wal-Mart is around $.95. (6 x .95 x 12 – 13.00 = $68.40/year or $5.70/month) Not counting cost of buying cloth towels.
