With the growing environmental concern, I have been digging deep to find sustainable products! There is so much we could be doing to help the Earth. In my efforts to do my part in helping our planet I’ve started using sustainable products!
There is a surprising number of products out there that leave no environmental impact! You can likely replace almost all of your regular kitchen items with sustainable ones.
But let’s face it, finding the best sustainable products can be time-consuming. Trust me, I have been through so much trial and error with sustainable products that promise the world, but then fall apart after the first use.
I think I have finally figured out the best of the best when it comes to eco-friendly replacements for everyday items.
Lucky you, they’re linked below!
Okay, does anyone else hate plastic wrap? It sticks together, gets all tangled, and never lays perfectly over the container. Just thinking about it makes me frustrated. When I found these beeswax wraps, I was afraid they would stick together and be gross.
You can get a 5 pack for $15.99 and never spend money on boxes of dysfunctional plastic! Plus you will keep a ton of plastic out of the landfills.
They are the best! They come clean really easy, and you can use them FOREVER. Say goodbye to nasty plastic wrap!
I have a huge collection of plastic produce bags I got from the grocery store. I never use them again, but I don’t ever use them for anything other than carrying my vegetables home from the store.
Plus, who wants to bag every single veggie you purchase? It’s so wasteful! I’ve been bringing canvas bags forever, but I finding these produce bags is a game changer!
You can get a set of 9 for only $8.95! They store easily. We just keep ours in our canvas bags so that they don’t get lost!
They carry a ton, and they’re super durable. Way better than flimsy plastic!
Confession time! I’ve been really into skincare lately. I’ve been spending money on face stuff like it’s going out of style. I can’t even tell you the number of times I have purchased makeup remover pads.
They’re one of those things you have to have! So, I started looking into reusable makeup remover pads and found these little babies!
If you’re good at sewing you can probably make them yourself, but I am hopeless at sewing…
You can get a pack of 16 for $11.90 and they come in pretty colors. When they’re dirty you can throw them in the washer or hand wash them yourself!
They’re pretty thick and they don’t leave little cotton pieces on my face like traditional makeup removing pads, which is always a plus. And they’re good for the planet!
I was pretty skeptical about glass food containers. Scenes of shattered glass in my lunch bag were a reoccurring fear, but I tried it out anyway.
These don’t stain like plastic, they don’t change shape in the microwave, and they never have a weird smell! I’m sold.
They are decently thick, and they have pretty lids. I’ve pretty much gotten rid of my plastic Tupperware. You can get a set of 4 for $39.95. I think they look great in my kitchen, and I’m guild free about using them!
I had heard of keeping reusable utensils in your bag to refrain from using plastic silverware restaurants. Honestly, I didn’t know if I would be disciplined enough to do it, but I figured I might as well give it a try!
They were so cute, I was trying to make excused to use them. Keeping these in my bag is so much better than bringing silverware from home. You can get your set for $8.98.
It comes with a fork, two spoons, chopsticks, a knife, and a straw!
So I never thought about my kitchen scrubbers being bad for the environment. When it dawned on me that every plastic scrubber I have ever thrown away was probably still sitting in a landfill, I pulled up the internet.
Once again, I was skeptical about these, but the reviews were great. It was worth the buy. You can get 3 scrubbers for $11.99 and they last a long time!
I carry around a 64oz hydro flask from Simply Modern everywhere I go. People look at me like I’m crazy for carrying around a half-gallon jug with me, but I don’t care. I want to be hydrated!
I’m not always successful in drinking al 64oz a day, but that’s beside the point. I’m not throwing away 6 water bottles a day, and that’s enough justification for me.
This one is much smaller and reasonably priced at $29.95. It also comes in pretty colors!
This was another product that I never would have thought about. Toothbrushes are made of plastic too!
I tried out these bamboo toothbrushes after hearing about the enormous amount of toothbrushes thrown away each year. They come in a pack of 4 for $9.99, and they feel just like a normal toothbrush.
I will definitely be repurchasing these!
I guess it wouldn’t matter if all of our trash was biodegradable if it was in a plastic trash bag. Man, everything is made out of plastic!
These biodegradable trash bags are only $11.95! They’re green and they work really well! You can’t go wrong when you’re saving the planet!
Even the bottles in our shower are plastic. You can get around this by using bar soaps. They even make bar soap for shampoo and conditioner.
There aren’t a ton of options, but there are enough that everyone should find what they need. You can get this set for $24.97 and never have to worry about a ton of plastic bottles in the shower again!
Oh yes, the classic metal straw! These things started to trend a few years ago, and now I can’t use anything else. There is just something so satisfying about drinking a cold drink from a metal straw!
Plus you don’t have to worry about adding to the billions of plastic straws all over our planet! You can get this set of 6 straws (two metal, 4 silicon) for $6.95!
