    1. A silicone straw that folds up and fits into a small carrying case, so you can easily bring them wherever you go and always feel good about helping to save those turtles.

    2. A counter compost bin designed to not stand out on your kitchen counter (in both looks and smells) and give you a place to easily store food waste before you take it to compost.

    3. Some bamboo utensils to replace the plastic ones that don't even hold up that well anyways.

    4. A SodaStream that'll basically revolutionize the way you drink water at home. No more lugging cases of seltzer home from the store. With this machine, you can make your own in seconds.

    5. A silicone travel bottle set so you can, once and for all, stop buying the travel size from the drug store. This way is even better because you get to bring the products you use at home with you, ensuring that your routine won't change that much.

    6. A countertop greenhouse because we're all not lucky enough to have a garden, but with this, you can grow your own herbs with ease.

    7. A set of food huggers that fit on both produce *and* cans or jars to keep your food fresher for longer so you can actually enjoy it (and not throw it out).

    8. An air purifying bag made with bamboo and charcoal to absorb bad odors in your home without having to spray anything artificial to cover them up.

    9. A bento box bowl so chic you'll be inspired to make your lunch at home more just so you can bring this in and show it off to your coworkers.

    10. A reusable cover for your sweeper that you can just throw in the wash when you're done wet or dry-mopping your floor.

    11. A biodegradable bento box with four compartments to fit different kinds of food so you can bring a complete lunch to work *and* feel good about saving money at the same time.

    12. Makeup remover pads that are not only better for the environment but also save you money because you won't have to take that monthly trip to the store to get makeup wipes that also ends in you buying 20 other things that weren't on your list.

    13. A compostable sponge that works just as hard (or harder) than the sponge you currently use to give your dishes the deep clean they deserve.

    14. Or a set of glass storage containers you'll feel so much better about microwaving food in. Plus, they're great to bring with you when you got out to dinner and know you're going to have leftovers. You paid for the food, you can bring it home!

    15. A pack of dryer balls because you've been frustrated with your lack-luster dryer that really doesn't dry your clothes for too long. Stop yelling "You have ONE job" at it and add these to your loads to make everything drier in a quarter of the time.

    16. A set of produce bags to take to the grocery store with you so you can keep your produce fresh and stop using all those plastic bags.

    17. A reusable silicone bag with so many uses, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. Need to steam vegetables? Check! Freeze fruit for smoothies? Double check! Pack a lunch? Triple check!

    18. A water bottle with TempShield installation that keeps hot drinks hot for six hours and cold drinks cold for 24 hours. That means you can put ice cold water in and still have a refreshing drink when you inevitably forget it on your counter and come home to it hours later, parched.

    19. A foldable reusable bag designed to fold up small and fit in your bag so you can use it when buying groceries, picking up something from the drug store, or even buying clothes at a store.

    20. A set of cloth napkins you can totally use every day. Cloth napkins are not just for special occasions. Just think about how many paper napkins you won't have to buy anymore.

    21. Some natural loofahs that are biodegradable so you won't feel bad about tossing them when they start to get gross from being in your shower for too long.

    22. A pack of beeswax food wraps designed to replace your need for plastic wrap all together. All you have to do is use the warmth of your hands to mold the wrap over a bowl, container, or food item, and as it cools, it will create a seal to protect it.

    23. Some silicone stretch lid covers that fit over bowls, cups, glassware, jars, and even fruits and vegetables to keep freshness in and plastic wrap out.

    24. Some bamboo towels that'll replace six-month's worth of paper towels, so you can keep your home clean, feel good about the impact you have on the environment, *and* never have to worry about using tissues to clean up a spill because that's all you have left in your house because you forgot to pick up some paper towels from the store on your way home.

    25. A set of snack and sandwich bags designed to look so good that everyone will be asking where you got them from so they can get their own. You'll turn into the trendsetter you've always wanted to be. 😎

    26. And a silicone mat baking sheet that'll make baking a breeze and eliminate your need for oil, sprays, or parchment paper.
