"Any harm done to the environment, therefore, is harm done to humanity." - Pope Francis
Over the past couple years I have been making an effort to be less wasteful. Our environment is clearly hurting which at times can really get me down. When you do the research it is hard to feel like there is anything we can do. But, there are simple swaps that will help you create less waste this year. Here are a few products I've recently been gifted that work wonderfully and reduce your environmental impact.

These little guys were on my Christmas list and I was lucky enough to receive a few. Using the warmth of your hands these replace plastic wrap and aluminum foil and cover up your food. These are said to last about a year and are a simple way to cut back on trash.
