Our LTMers really believe that small actions lead to big change and have found ways to mindfully engage in the eco-friendly movement.
If this month motivates you to update your habits, here are just a few of the sustainable swaps we’re implementing in our efforts to go green:

Lately I’ve been purchasing clothes secondhand and thrifting as much as possible to try to get off the fast fashion train. My favorite recent find is a retro scarf that I bought from a small vintage shop in my hometown of Indianapolis. The seller even gave me advice about the best places to thrift the next time I’m in town.
