8 Eco-friendly gadgets Grace and Frankie would love
Chances are, you've heard of Grace and Frankie. Because Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda are amazing. And if you've never heard of the popular show on Netflix, what are you waiting for? If you took Frankie and Jane Fonda and combined them into one person, you'd have just about the most eco-friendly person you could conjure up. And in honor of that, we're going to share some of our latest favorite eco-friendly gadgets.
Jane Fonda is making the news. A lot. And not for her role as Grace Hansen. Recently, Jane has a penchant for getting arrested for protesting in Washington. And we kinda love it. The actress is passionate about climate change, and for good reason. The Australian wildfires are dumping tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which will fuel climate change even faster. That, on top of harmful HFC-23 spikes, means we need to be as mindful as we can in our daily lives, and use more eco-friendly gadgets.
From big to small, there are ways we can incorporate more earth-friendly items. It’s important that we don’t rely on everyone else around us to make changes. And every little bit helps. After all, if Jane Fonda is willing to get arrested five times for it, alongside Ted Danson, we can compost, right?
Teracube Long-Warranty Smartphone reduces waste
Designed to last longer than other phones, the Teracube Long-Warranty Smartphone supports the environment.

It’s a long-lasting phone in its own right, but the company doesn’t want you to toss your phone in the trash sooner than necessary.

And you’ll also fund the collection of just as many plastic bottles from places like the Philippines, Haiti, and Indonesia.
Subpod In-Garden Compost System makes it easy to compost
We all know composting is the right thing to do to help our planet, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. But it can be when you have the Subpod In-Garden Compost System.

Once it’s in place in your yard, you simply add food waste and give it a mix. And, there will be no smells, pests, or mess. The results speak for themselves. Not only do you get nutrient-dense compost—though that’s a huge bonus—the emissions saved by your family’s use of Subpod for just a year actually equate to a car being off the road for six months.

Looking to grow happy and healthy plants at home? Look no further than the Steady State Upcycled Plant Food and Sustainable Grow Kits. Featuring a kit for herbs and a kit for vegetables, each one has everything you need to keep your plants thriving. But, there’s a truly eco-friendly approach that other kits don’t have: upcycled phosphorous. These kits actually use phosphorous that has been recovered in its pure form before it can pollute our waters. This essential nutrient for plants is then part of a closed-loop, meaning it’s totally sustainable.
Hopefully, this has you thinking about ways you can incorporate more eco-friendly gadgets into your routine.
