Shop and Save [the Earth]: Our Favorite Earth-Friendly Products
We can all do our part when it comes to being more eco friendly. With Earth Day here, we’re reminded that we can all take steps to help reduce our carbon footprints on this Earth. Sometimes, it’s difficult to know what to buy that is actually saving the planet, so that is why we’ve compiled a list of all of our favorite Earth-friendly products..
Metal Travel Utensil Set
When you’re out at your favorite dive, you’ll often be given plastic everything with your food. Plastic straws, forks, spoons, etc. While this is convenient, it’s also really harmful for the environment. Instead, consider bringing around your own metal travel set. They’re great for the environment. They’re reusable. And they’lll ensure you always have a fork handy when you need one.
Just like with plastic straws, toothbrushes are mostly made out of hard plastics that are also bad for the environment. With bamboo toothbrushes, the toothpaste can last a long time. The charcoal bristles are healthy for your teeth and will be biodegradable when it’s ready to throw away. When it’s time to throw it out, the bamboo will break down easily. It’s an easy change that really helps this planet of ours.
Ditch the Bottles With Shampoo Bars
You don’t need to have shampoo bottles in order to wash your hair. Ditch the plastic bottles when you opt for shampoo bars. Same soft clean feeling, but a little more sudsy and a lot less harmful for the environment.
Reusable Makeup Remover Pads
If you wear makeup, then you’re probably using makeup wipes to remove it at the end of the night. Did you know, however, that these wipes are not biodegradable? Instead, consider reusable makeup remover pads instead. You can use one for a month and just rinse them in between uses. It takes off makeup just as good as a makeup wipe and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean.
Reusable Menstrual Cups
Ladies, our pads and tampons are harming the environment. Not only are they wasteful, but don’t break down after use.. Menstrual cups can last months and even years, and all they require for cleaning is hot water and soap. They’re comfortable and easy to use and will help the environment.
Reusable Coffee Pods
Keurig made getting needed caffeine convenient and simple. Instead of sitting and waiting for coffee to brew, all there is to do in those early morning hours is pop in a pod and press a button. Voila! Coffee. However, all of those coffee pods are just adding to waste that the Earth cannot afford. A reusable coffee pod and filters still allow for convenience and delicious coffee while being Earth friendly and delicious.
