    1. This reusable laundry egg will save you loads of money on detergent (while we're here, can we talk about how expensive that stuff is?!). Whack it into your machine and the beads inside will clean your clothes just as well as regular powders or tablets do – it'll last you for up to 210 washes!

    2. These recyclable toothbrush heads that fit most Oral-B toothbrushes have charcoal-infused brushes that help to naturally whiten teeth.

    3. Sure, it's great to help save the planet, but it's even better if you can save yourself some time, product, and money while you're doing it, right? Well, guess what, folks – this reusable cloth that removes your makeup using only water fits that brief exactly, and it'll cost you less than £3.

    4. Do you get through kitchen roll really quickly? These bamboo sheets make for a great alternative, and - get this - each sheet can be reused multiple times. Good for the planet AND your wallet!

    5. Look, we've almost all tried adding water to our hand soap to help it last longer, and if you ask me, we were absolutely right to do so. These product-saving foaming dispensers know it, too – you're actually supposed to dilute any soap that goes in these so that its foaming pump can work its magic.

    6. And speaking of saving soap, this soap saver (they really hit the name on the head there) will help to prevent that incredibly wasteful and slimy stuck-to-the-sink problem you always get with bar soaps.

    7. And once you've got one of those, getting a set of those shampoo bars you've probably had your eye on for ages begins to seem a bit more viable. These ones have got some incredibly high reviews, last longer than regular shampoo, and smell incredible to boot.

    8. This ionic shower head will make your water softer, help you to get the most out of your shampoo, and boost your water pressure.

    9. You won't even be thinking about the fact that this reusable, app-enabled notebook is eco-friendly when you're using it, because its features are so futuristic you'll feel like you're living in a sci-fi movie. If you love writing things down physically but wish you could save your work digitally, this one's for you!

    10. This foldable avocado bag proves that reusable products can be cute, too!

    11. This glass file looks better and lasts longer than regular emery boards, and it comes with a stunning case too (yesss).

    12. These non-stick silicone baking mats are so useful that most home cooks will probably have wanted some for a while, but it doesn't hurt that they're a reusable replacement for tinfoil too.

    13. Imagine the sheer satisfaction of using this handy AF fabric shaver from Philips to help save your favourite items of clothing from a bobble-covered fate that would probably end with them in the bin. Plus, you won't have to fork out for brand-new clothes, making it kinder to the environment and your pocket.

    14. There probably isn't much in life that's more annoying than having a frayed charger which only works when you get it at that one, very specific angle. Save yourself the stress of dealing with that problem with some of these cable savers, which will prevent fraying and breakage caused by bending and pulling your wires.

    15. Tumble dryer balls will help your clothes dry faster, feel softer, and become less lint-covered. They're completely reusable, and they might even eliminate the need for fabric conditioner! Plus, how sweet do these guys look?

    16. This magnetised ball will get the limescale out of your dishwasher and washing machine with minimal effort. Just stick it into your machines and you're done for up to five years(!).

    17. Get the most out of your toothpaste with one of these squeezers, which will prevent that awkward (and sometimes gross) wrestling session we've all had with a half-empty tube that's been crumpled beyond all use.

    18. Making the change to a menstrual cup can seem intimidating when you've not used one before, but they keep you protected for HOURS without having to be changed! Customers say this one is incredibly comfortable, and it'll cut down your spending on tampons and pads too.

    You, remembering that these products are eco-friendly on top of everything else:
