ECO CRATES of America
South Carolina, USA
Being more sustainable in your everyday life means living a life that can be sustained long term. From the resources you use to the home you live in, to the vacations you take, to the products you buy… as consumers, we need to consider every facet, every purchase, every habit if we want to live more sustainably.
When we purchase products, we want to consider a number of factors to determine it’s sustainability. Questions you may ask are:
- Who makes it? Are the manufacturers treated fairly, and not exploited.
- How is it made? Is there machinery involved, and does it have minimal impact on the environment?
- What is it made from? Are the materials sourced sustainably and ethically?
- Where is it made? Is it locally produced, or shipped from overseas?
The last question, “where is it made?” is more important than you might think. When we shop locally, it eliminates a large logistical need. The closer you buy to home, the less impact on the environment from shipping companies.
If you’re in the US, check out ECO CRATES of America, a subscription model marketplace that only stocks sustainable and eco-friendly products that are made here in the US.
