Want to find ways to give back to our Mother Earth this holiday season? Studies have also shown that every year Americans throw away 25% more trash during the Thanksgiving to New Year’s holiday period than any other time of year. The extra waste amounts to 25 million tons of garbage, or about 1 million extra tons per week. To help you get into eco shopping mode, here’s a list of my top Earth-friendly picks to check off your gifts list!

1. Earthbaby Compostable Diaper Service

A diaper is the third most common item found in US landfills where they will stay for 500 years. And it doesn’t matter what type of diaper you use. All diapers will end up in landfills for 500 years, even the compostable ones. They MUST be composted at 150 degrees for 14 weeks in an industrial facility to fully breakdown and ensure that the resold soil is safe for reforestation and landscaping projects.

2. U-Konserve Zero-Waste Reusable Food Storage
