Small Changes Make a Big Impact

 

While sustainability new year's resolutions can be challenging, they truly can make a huge impact for the earth. And it can be as small as changing the roll in your bathroom! Pick one thing you can commit to swapping to a more eco-friendly alternative. For example, each roll of Bim Bam Boo tree-free TP saves 3.2lbs of old-growth forest from getting flushed down the toilet. Over the course of a lifetime, your family can save a small forest and all the critters that call it home! And that can all start with a sustainable new year's resolution.
