What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.

Jane Goodall


Many of us are anxious about the climate crisis and frustrated that powerful corporations and governments aren't changing things fast enough. But where does that leave us in the meantime?

Waiting for change is wasting our opportunities as individuals to have a meaningful impact. Every dollar you spend or piece of trash you throw away is a vote for the world you want. So use it!

The thought of overhauling your life and changing your habits can be pretty overwhelming. But we're here to help!

I'm Alex Gamboa Grand, co-founder of Way of Being — a shop, teacher, and friend offering supplies, education, and encouragement to support a sustainable, low-waste lifestyle where everyday actions create a better world.

The goal is not perfection. We are all about trying our best – one day and one low-waste swap at a time – in whatever ways are manageable for our lifestyles, budgets, cultures, and time constraints.

There are so many ways to make a difference with simple but impactful changes, and we want to make those changes easier and more accessible for you.
