There are many different ways to begin living a cleaner lifestyle. Some people start to buy products that are environmentally friendly, sustainable, and that use only natural ingredients. Other people declutter their homes and get rid of belongings they don’t need anymore. Still others begin to reduce their commitments and create a schedule that reduces stress.
Another way to transition into a cleaner lifestyle is to change some of the things you put into your body, such as the tea you drink every day. Jem sells several teas created by Lake & Oak Tea Co., a Toronto-based company “dedicated to fostering self-care rituals that help bring a little joy and balance to your life.”
