As some of you may know, April is Earth Month! And although it can seem overwhelming to live a completely eco-friendly lifestyle, here at Humble Brands, we think it’s super important to incorporate small, sustainable actions into our daily lives all year long. So brew up some local, organic tea in your reusable mug and get cozy while we share some of our team’s favorite ways to make a difference!
“I only do two to three full loads of laundry once a month with bio-friendly laundry soap and avoid softeners and dryer sheets. All my laundry is also air dried.”
- Chris, V.P. of Operations
“I buy most of my clothes, furniture and household items secondhand and prioritize buying local food. I also volunteer at a community farm to support our local food systems and plant native flowers in my garden to support pollinators.”
- Calli, Photographer & Social Media Manager
“I love to get crafty and creative by upcycling and repurposing old objects that aren’t serving me anymore!”
- Marisa, Communications & Brand Partnerships Manager
"We try to purchase only locally grown produce to help reduce our carbon footprint and compost our food waste. We also converted to LED lights throughout our home to help reduce our electrical use.”
- Brandon, Chief Financial Officer
“We recycle and repurpose everything we can in our household. My boys and I also limit our use of water with five minute showers every other day.”
- Eloy, Production
“My wife and I keep a simple wardrobe and most of our kids' clothes are hand-me-downs from friends. We always pass along the hand-me-downs once our kids have outgrown them or donate items that we no longer need.”
- Eric, Director of Operations
“I pick up trash. From roads, trails, sidewalks. Anywhere trash drops, I'll pick it up.”
- Ryan, Human Resources
“I regularly attend permaculture classes and tree planting days at local land trusts, parks, and farms. I am a soil, food, and farming advocate and my water use is very limited.”
- Glen, Production
