Figuring out where to start in the realm of sustainability can sometimes feel daunting, but it doesn't have to be! With so many companies coming out with amazing products, we now have more eco-friendly options to choose from than ever before.
These easy swaps can really make a positive difference over time. Here are 5 simple ways you can start to "go greener" at home...
1. Bamboo Toothbrush
Traditional plastic toothbrushes stay in our waste stream for years and often end up in the ocean. A great sustainable alternative is a bamboo toothbrush.
2. Hand Soap Tablets
Completely cut out the need to buy a new hand-soap container for life (yes you read that right!) with this Hand Soap Starter Set from Blueland. All you have to do is fill the glass bottle with water and drop in a tablet to create a foaming handwash.
Tablet refill packs are just $2 and come in delightful scents like Iris Agave and Lavender Eucalyptus.
3. Stainless Steel Straws
Another easy swap is changing out plastic drinking straws for stainless steel ones. Plastic straws are steadily being phased out in many restaurants (yay!) but it's still a good idea to carry your own for your iced-coffee run or store a few at home for cocktail hour.
This Reuseable Stainless Steel Straw Kit from Responsible Products comes with 4 straws, a cleaning brush, and a pouch for easy-carrying. For a colorful option, sip in style with one of these Stainless Steel Bent Straws from Package Free.
4. Laundry Detergent Sheets
