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 love the organized effort and the impact a million committed people can make.

How about you? What are some earth friendly choices you’ve been making? Drop a comment below!

  1. I’m guessing we’ve already done our part but i’ll head over there and check the list to see if we can improve further!

  2. Cool challenge. Good for your for joining it. I too am going to check it out to see if there is anything else we can be doing.

  3. Don’t forget free range eggs. I’m not actually sure that they are more eco-friendly but they are more humane.
