5 Easy Sustainable Products You Need In Your Home
Research suggests that the average American produces 29 pounds of garbage per week. When you use non-sustainable products around the house, it may not seem like much, but each item you throw away adds up when it makes its way to a landfill.
Luckily, in 2023, there are many sustainable alternatives to the products you use every day. It's time to go green. Read on to learn about five easy sustainable products you should have in your home.
1. Eco-Friendly Laundry Detergent Sheets
If you're still using liquid laundry detergent, it's time for an eco-friendly upgrade. Standard detergent bottles are made of thick plastic that's just going to take up space in a landfill when you throw them away. Laundry pods seem like a good alternative, but they release microplastics, and the containers they come in are generally also plastic.
Eco-friendly laundry detergent sheets are easy to use, great for the environment, and fantastic at cleaning clothes. You can get them in a fresh spring scent or choose an unscented variety if you'd prefer.
Bonus: even the box is compostable. There's no waste!
2. Reusable Bamboo Makeup Remover Pads
Traditional makeup remover wipes and cotton pads can be harsh on your skin, harsh on your wallet, and harsh on the environment. How much money are you throwing into the garbage every day after you take off your makeup?
There's a better alternative that's just as easy to use, softer on your skin, and totally reusable. Reusable bamboo makeup remover pads.
These black bamboo makeup remover pads come in a pack of 14, and you also get a jar to store them in that will look great on your vanity as well as a pouch to wash them in. Throw them in the laundry when they're dirty, and they'll be ready to reuse!
3. Reusable Bamboo Product Application Pads
Do you love using cotton pads to apply your toner and other skincare products? Cotton can be too absorbent, and that means you're throwing away your skincare product along with each disposable pad. There has to be a better way.
Reusable bamboo application pads are a fantastic alternative to traditional cotton rounds or balls. They're absorbent enough to hold onto your skincare products, but not so absorbent that the products never make it to your skin. They're super easy to wash as well. You just throw them in with the rest of your laundry.
4. Reusable Beeswax Wraps
Plastic cling wrap may seem like the only reasonable way to quickly and easily wrap food, but this is no longer the case. If you're tired of throwing away countless sheets of plastic wrap, switch to reusable beeswax wraps.
Each wrap is made of soft cotton that's been infused with beeswax. The wax helps it hold its shape, making it perfect for covering food containers. You can use it to wrap sandwiches for lunch, cover bread while it's proving, and much more. The wraps can't be used in the microwave, but they can be used in the refrigerator or freezer as well as at room temperature.
5. Bamboo Toilet Paper
Do you ever consider how many trees you're literally flushing down the toilet? Traditional toilet paper is wasteful, but it's hard to avoid. Ideally, everyone would have a bidet, but this isn't an option for everyone, and having some sort of toilet paper on hand is still helpful.
Bamboo toilet paper is an excellent alternative. It's still soft and comfortable to use, and bamboo is a fantastic resource that's in no short supply. Pair it with a bidet for a truly sustainable restroom experience.
