Small Changes, Big Impact

Your choices matter. Discover small changes you can make today to create a sustainable planet.

Get Educated

Expand your knowledge of the social, environmental and economic impacts of sustainability—so you can be empowered to incorporate green practices into your life and help others do the same.

Audit Your Food Waste

About 20% of what goes into landfills is food, which makes it the largest single source of waste in the U.S. Track how much feed you throw away over the span of a week, then try meal planning and strategic grocery shopping to lower your food waste.

Cut Down On Returns

Returning items you’ve ordered comes at a cost to the environment. Every year, the transportation of returns emits about 15 million metric tons of carbon dioxide. Practice buying with greater intent and either donate unwanted goods or swap them with a friend.
