5 Simple Sustainable Living Apps with Eco-friendly and Green Living Tips - Prosperity Candle Blog

Living more sustainably can sometimes sound a little intimidating, but it is really as simple as making conscious choices and being mindful of how you impact others and the planet. Surprisingly, you can make an incredible difference for the environment without changing your daily routine in any major way. With the right tools at your fingertips, living a sustainable and eco-friendly life is easier than you may imagine.

Each of us has the power to reduce our carbon footprint and give back to communities with our day-to-day choices. One powerful way to cast your vote for a brighter world is with how you shop. With the B Corp movement, conscious consumers and dedicated brands are making it a priority to give back to artisans and the environment. It's why February is B Corp month and is celebrated as a time for positive change.

It only takes one small shift to start creating a greener world. Here are 5 of our favorite apps that make it fun and easy to make sustainable and ethical choices, wherever you are.
