Turn your morning ritual into an earth-friendly one.

Start by switching over to Fair Trade organic beans, like Newman’s Own Organics Coffee.

According to Nell Newman:

“Fair Trade certification means that farmers in coffee producing countries worldwide can enjoy a better life.”

Newman’s Own Organics uses the profit from their coffee to help women in Oaxaca, Mexico raise chickens organically, to strengthen their household income and provide their families with a healthy source of protein. You can find Newman’s Own Coffee in many of your local stores, and here.

Next, switch to a reusable coffee filter made of cotton, hemp, or gold.

And if you like your coffee light and sweet, use organic milk or soymilk, and organic sugar or sucanat.

Enjoy!

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It

According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
