It’s not that you don’t want to make a difference, not that your hearts not in the right place. Just sometimes squeezing good deeds in between the morning’s mad scramble for the train and getting home in time for that yoga class with the flexible, husky voiced instructor (who definitely keeps making eye contact) is just too difficult. And sometimes, it’s just plain expensive.
Well, to make your life just a little easier, and to give you a hand making someone else’s life just a little easier, we have a short list of every day products and services that you didn’t know could make a big difference.
Who Gives A Crap toilet paper.
Not only does this Aussie NGO donate 50% of its profit’s to WaterAid (improving sanitation and access to drinking water for the 40% of the world’s population without toilets); but their paper is also 100% recycled, sans foreign chemicals, delivered to your door and super affordable!
Head over to their site to see for yourself!
Like so many other budget SIM companies, Jeenee seems too good to be true ($35 for unlimited texts, 3GB of data and no contract – that’s cray?!), but Jeenee comes with a cherry on top. The organisation provides $850 worth of mobile connectivity (including a new smartphone, data and credit) to an Australian living with a disability for every 10 $35 SIM packs connected.
That’s right, you’re not only saving money but actually Mak[ing] A Difference too!
This one’s just for y’all down in Victoria. Having recently teamed up with Getup! to fight for the renewable energy target, Australia’s #1 green power company Powershop is the cheapest, greenest, most user friendly energy company in Australia. Powershop is the only energy provider actively campaigning to retain the Renewable Energy Target (RET), alongside their 100% green electricity product.
They’ve also made this handy little video explaining the RET for laymen like you and me.
Make the switch today and join the only provider in Australia to allow users to check how much power they’re using before the bill comes through the door!
So there you have it, now you don’t have to miss that yoga class – making a difference without the fanfare.
