Part of homesteading is being sustainable. This shouldn't apply to just being able to provide food for your family by growing a garden and canning. This should apply to other items you use on your homestead. As homesteaders we should try to use as many natural and organic products as we can from using organic fertilizers and avoiding dangerous pesticides and herbicides to seed saving to natural cleaning and health products to sustainable products such as cotton bags for shopping and storage and the tools we use whether inside the home our outside. That's why we have bamboo toothbrushes on our website.
