This Earth Day — as well as the other 364 days of the year — you can do your part to protect the environment by swapping some common household items with their eco-friendly counterparts. Not only will you feel good about cutting down on plastic pollution, you may end up saving money in the long run because you will buy less things. 

Switching just a few products, like trading in plastic straws for metal ones and carrying a reusable water bottle, can help you and your family do your part to make the planet cleaner and safer for future generations. No matter what you choose, you can feel good knowing your small sacrifice will leave a lasting mark.
