Tru Earth Laundry Detergent Strips
Ditch your regular detergent for these slim strips that pack the same cleaning power without any chemicals (or plastic). The compostable and zero-waste packaging leaves nothing behind, and the compact size means these take less energy to ship – and take up less space in your laundry room.
Natural Bamboo Toothbrush
Did you know over 1 billion toothbrushes get tossed in the trash each year? Yikes! You can help end that wasteful cycle with this sustainable alternative. This two-part brush features a reusable bamboo handle combined with a replaceable, 100% plant-based brush head for a much more earth-friendly way to polish your pearly whites.
Easy-Clean Compost Bin
Adding a countertop compost bin is an easy way to dispose of food scraps, cut methane emissions, and create a nutrient-rich fertilizer for your garden. This bin also happens to be easy to clean (and empty) and will lock in all odors while looking good.
LastSwab Reusable Cotton Swab
Cotton swabs have been a bathroom staple for decades, but this single-use item is one of the least eco-friendly products. So consider a switch to a zero-waste Lastswab, which is made of nylon, features two different ends for cleaning ears or applying makeup, and can be washed and reused infinitely.
Tree-Free Toilet Paper
Yep, there are even sustainable alternatives for toilet paper! This tree-free product is actually made from bamboo and sugarcane pulp, a surprisingly soft combination (that’s safe to use with septic tanks too!)
Recycled Plastic Planter
You can double your eco-impact by adding your favorite greenery to this planter – which is made entirely of ocean-bound plastic and recycled materials! Available in 3 sizes and 2 colors, it’s a small sustainable step that we hope will keep growing.
Blueland Glass & Mirror Forever Bottle & Tablet
Switch to this sustainable cleaner and you’ll never toss another empty cleaning bottle again. The reusable container just gets refilled with a tiny tablet that creates 24 ounces of cleaning solution. And you’re left with streak-free glass – and no waste!
