In Simple Matters, I write a bit about finding allies. In the search for simplicity and sustainability, it can be helpful to have a support team; people who have made it their business to do the nitty gritty research and have emerged on the other side with answers.
MightyNest is an online store that stocks a whole range of products designed to help people along on their path toward sustainability at home. In the quest for a healthy home and a healthier planet, they might be exactly the kind of ally you’re looking for.
The team there has developed a program that they call MightyFix. For a small monthly subscription rate, MightyFix sends subscribers a tried and true product to use in their home. The idea is that the product might encourage a change in habits. (And you know I can get behind habit shifts.) With any luck the month’s fix might replace something that’s not particularly sustainable or healthy in your home, with something that is.
It’s an opportunity to slowly but surely make shifts in your home, with the added benefit of being able to anticipate a bit of happy mail arriving each month. A set of wool dryer balls might replace disposable dryer sheets, for instance. A new water bottle might encourage you to ditch single-use plastic bottles forever. A set of Bee’s Wrap, like you see here, might finally replace the plastic wrap in your kitchen drawer.
The monthly product arrives with a friendly note detailing how to use the new item and a recipe to boot. The Bee’s Wrap fix you see here arrived with a recipe for honey-sweetened jam from Marisa McClellan of Food in Jars! As lots of you might know, Bee’s Wrap is one of the products that we’ve used regularly in our house for the past four or five years. It’s a simple, reusable replacement for plastic wrap and we’ve made the switch without ever looking back.
Beeswrap is made in Vermont from organic cotton muslin that has been coated with beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin. The heat from your hands can mold the fabric into place over a bowl of leftovers, or a block of cheese, or a loaf of bread. We use ours regularly to cover half an avocado, or to keep a bowl of washed salad greens fresh. Simple soap and cold water make it clean again, and when it finally wears out—they suggest a year, but we’ve used some of our sheets even longer—you can compost it. This month, MightyNest is offering a special opportunity for Reading My Tea Leaves readers to bring a bit of this magic stuff home, for just a few dollars, by signing up for MightyFix.
Here’s what you need to know about MightyFix:
+ A subscription to MightyFix is $10/month and each month subscribers receive an item valuing at least $10, and often more. With the code TEALEAVESBEESFIX you can get your first fix—a medium and large sheet of Bee’s Wrap—for just $3. (The code will be automatically applied to your cart with this link.)
+ Shipping on your MightyFix is always free, but more than that, if you want to add other things to your order—detergent or dish soap or sunscreen—you can add those to your order and have all of those things ship for free, too.
+ MightyFix products are always products that would be useful in any household; not for families with children only.
+ You can be a subscriber for as long or short as makes sense for you; there’s no mandatory subscription period.
Here’s what to do: MightyNest is offering RMTL readers a special $3/month rate for the first month of their subscription. That means that if you sign up for MightyFix today, you’ll pay just $3 for the first month and you’ll receive a set of Bee’s Wrap—a large and medium sheet—as your first fix. The fix will arrive to your door within a week or so! To sign up: head this way. (Offer
