INDIANAPOLIS — The cost of sustainability can be a deterrent, particularly with the current pace of inflation. Many of us would like to use eco-friendly products but don’t want to spend more.

Enter Jeanine Bobenmoyer, founder of The City Moms and chief mom officer, who just published a list of 10 sustainable swaps you can make now that won’t have a major impact on your household budget.

Among her favorites:

  • Swedish dishcloths that replace up to 17 rolls of paper towels and can be composted when you’re done with them.
  • Using a ‘refillery’ store or service like Indy’s The Sustainery to replace cleaning and beauty products without the extra plastic or packaging.
  • Reusable period products including pads and underwear that eliminate a ton of plastic packaging and can also be put to good use postpardum.
