Green and Organic: Joining the ‘One in a Million’ Movement

Green choices support happy simple living

“It is more rewarding to watch money change the world than to watch it accumulate.” ~ Gloria Steinem

I just signed up for the ‘One in a Million’ Movement over at Big Green Purse. The idea is that if a million people pledge to shift $1,000 of spending to more environmentally-friendly products, we’ll have a one billion dollar impact in the marketplace.

When you make the pledge, you’re given a checklist of things to commit to switching:

  • organic fruits & vegetables
  • phthalate-free cosmetics
  • fuel-efficient car
  • energy-efficient appliances
  • shade-grown coffee
  • energy-saving home repairs
  • organic cotton/hemp clothing
  • organic milk
  • recycled paper products
  • safer toys
  • compact fluorescent light bulbs
  • furniture made from eco-certified wood
  • water-saving appliances

I’ve been increasingly choosing environmentally friendly products anyway, but I love the organized effort and the impact a million committed people can make.

How about you? What switches are you making for eco-friendly products, and are you happy with your choices?
