We believe making changes and building eco-friendly habits to reduce your impact on the planet should be attainable and feel good. That’s why we developed the One Planet Life app.
One of the most impactful ways to reduce your carbon footprint is by improving energy efficiency in your home or workplace. This includes using energy-saving appliances and unplugging devices when not in use. To help you get started (and have some fun too with others in the OPL community) join our June App Challenge. Unplug your appliances every day in June and track your Joyful Change!

Our Eco-Journey Kits are here!
Every journey you take is made easier with the right toolbox. We created six eco-journey kits to coordinate with each of the six sustainability journeys on the One Planet Life app. Each product in the eco-journey kits has been thoughtfully curated, from its purpose to how it was produced. We invite you to check them out. In addition to our eco-journey kits, visit our store for high-quality, double-insulated reusable bottles, foldable and reversible totes with coordinating travel utensil sets, and large canvas totes.
Topics we are talking about
According to a 2022 report from Greenpeace, an international non-profit devoted to raising awareness about environmental issues, only about 5-6% of U.S. plastics were recycled last year, down from a high of 9.5% in 2014 and 8.7% in 2018. Considering that the world now produces more than 380 million metric tons of plastic every year, it’s easy to see how quickly waste can add up. Refilling your own containers is a fairly easy way to reduce your plastic waste. We share our experience in our blog, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and REFILL to Benefit the Planet.
