    How I Shop Ethically on a Low Income

    Last week, I wrote about being too sick to work. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has kept me out of the workforce for a good year and a half now. And that’s had an impact on our finances. My husband works two part-time jobs, and I earn a little through affiliate sales. But our income hovers right around the national poverty line. I hesitate to call ourselves poor, because we have a lot of safety nets that rarely exist in true poverty. But we live in a government-subsidized apartment and pinch our pennies carefully. Given our financial state, it may seem odd that I often write about ethical shopping. Ethical shopping has…

    If you want to build a more ethical wardrobe, shoes are a great place to start. The footwear industry has long been plagued with pollution, child labor, and poor working conditions.

    Budget-Friendly Ethical Jewelry

    Ethical shopping doesn’t have to be expensive. Sometimes it’s worth it to spend extra to ensure your product was made with fair wages, safe working environments, and sustainable practices. Sometimes ethical companies can’t compete with the ultra-low, sweatshop-produced prices we’re used to. But sometimes you’re on a budget, and you just can’t afford ethical price tags. Or so you think. I’m here to tell you that it is possible to buy ethical on a budget. You just have to know where to look. Ethical jewelry is a great example of this. There’s a huge variety of ethical jewelry brands out there, with a wide range of styles and price points.…

    A $3 Natural Alternative to Plastic Wrap + Mighty Fix Review

    Today, I’m excited to introduce my newest affiliate partner Mighty Nest. I’ve been shopping at Mighty Nest for years, and it’s one of my favorite stores for healthy, ethical, and sustainable home goods.   The Mighty Fix The gem of Mighty Nest is their low-cost subscription boxes. I’ve never been one to pay $50+ for a box of things I may or may not like, but when I learned about their $10 Mighty Fix box, it seemed like a no-brainer to try it. The Mighty Fix subscription box contains 1-2 items that will make your home healthier and greener. The items are always valued at over $10 and in my experience are…

    12 Ethical Products You Can Find at Target

    Want to shop ethically, but don’t know where to begin? Some of your favorite stores may already be selling ethical products. You just need to know where to look. Today, I’ve curated a selection of ethical products from Target. Like many American moms, I’ve spent a lot of time browsing the aisles of Target with a Starbucks drink in hand. But when I committed to shopping more ethically, I worried that I might have to give up my beloved trips to Target. Thankfully, I didn’t. Target doesn’t have a perfect ethical rating, but it does have higher standards for labor and sustainability than most of its competitors. Target also carries a lot of…
