Jane Goodall once said, “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” Everyone wants to make a difference in the world and one way that we can make a difference is to try and buy the least amount of plastic as we can. For example, we can choose to purchase wooden over plastic when given the option.
One easy way to do this as a mom is to purchase wooden toys over plastic. The benefits of doing this not only save the planet, but the wooden toys are so much more indestructible when compared to plastic ones. I love to buy my littles wooden puzzles and toys. A huge bonus to this is my kids really enjoy them as well.
Another way to shop wooden over plastic is with your decor and household items. Wooden decor will last so much longer than plastic. The Hyggehaus Wooden Storage Organizer will last for years compared to most plastic storage organizers. A benefit to purchasing wooden decor over plastic is that it is less likely to break.
Wooden hangers are another move you can make away from plastic. Wooden hangers will be far less likely to snap into and break. They will hold your clothes up well and usually prevents them from wrinkling.
Wooden items overall last so much longer than plastic items. Not only will you be making smarter money moves and getting longer use out of them, but you will also be helping to make a difference in the world.
