Simple Switch is an Ethical Alternative to Amazon
Simple Switch has even been described as “Amazon with a heart”.
We all know that there are tons of really great products and companies out there that do great things for the world. The problem is that it takes a lot of time and energy to do the research on fair labor laws, work ethics, and environmental impact of every single item you buy. Who has that kind of time?
I don’t know about you, but even though I want to support local and “vote with my dollars“, I still find myself getting overwhelmed when it comes to making purchases. I end up defaulting to Amazon just because it’s the “only option”.
Not anymore! I still have a few Amazon favorites and still love the variety, but Simple Switch has some pretty great deals that rival Amazon. Personally, I love that you can even buy toilet paper from Simple Switch. You can get 48 rolls of Who Gives a Crap toilet paper for $48.
You can shop by impact on Simple Switch!
You can filter products by the impact that matters most to you. For example, I like to shop by environmental impact for products that support a low waste/ plastic free lifestyle.
My Favorite Simple Switch Products
If you’ve been following me for long then you know that I’m super picky when it comes to purchasing new products. I like high quality items that will last a long time. I’ll gladly spend more money on a good product that will last forever. But I’m also just as likely to skip purchasing something I want just because I don’t need it.
On top of that, I also really like to vote with my dollars by shopping local first, then doing my best to purchase eco-friendly products.
All that being said, even though I’m super weird about what I buy, I do have a few favorite Simple Switch products.
This is the same price as Target! Why not support a really cool online shop like Simple Switch? I personally love mine and have saved so much money by not buying tampons and pads.
To know me in real life is to know that I hate thank you notes. Not because I wasn’t taught correctly, but because I think they are a huge waste of resources. I immediately throw thank you cards in the recycling and cringe at the thought of people throwing a thank you card from me in the trash. I love that these can be planted and grown into flowers!
I’m in the process of cutting out paper towels in our home. We never use them for meals since we love using our cloth napkins. However, as a southerner who loves fatty and fried foods, I keep them around for nasty oil spills. I love the idea of keeping bamboo paper towels in the house.
