    Time to clean up your act.

    2. A Pela AirPod case that'll save your precious earbuds from getting bashed around in your bag. It's 100% compostable, so you can bury it in your garden when it's come to the end of its life.

    3. A five-pack of lined Post-it notes that are made from 100% recycled paper and a plant-based adhesive. They're longer than traditional sticky notes, so you'll have plenty of space to jot down your thoughts.

    4. A genius wooden coffee maker that'll craft you the perfect cuppa Joe without any filters. Using it is simple: just place it on top of your cup, add coffee grinds, pour hot water, and get to sippin'.

    5. A set of machine-washable, reusable makeup-removing rounds that'll replace your regular old cotton pads. They come in a floral storage box, so they'll look cute displayed on your vanity, too.

    6. A handy DivaCup menstrual cup that'll be your BFF when Aunt Flo rolls into town. You can wear it for up to 12 hours (depending on how heavy your flow is), so you won't have to worry about changing your tampon or pad half-way through the day.

    7. A eight-pack of reusable silicone tea bags that are an environmentally-friendly alternative to pre-packed sachets. Each bag has a different coloured tag, so you'll never forget which drink belongs to whom when you have friends over.

    8. A non-toxic soy wax candle that'll fill your apartment with the smell of sweet treats (even when you're not baking them). The holder is just as dreamy as the scent and can be used as a plant or makeup brush holder once you've reached the end of your wick. Congrats on the recycling!

    9. A tit-illating tote bag covered in bazongas of all shapes and sizes that's a fashionable and reusable alternative to plastic bags. It has a zipper at the top, so you won't have to worry about strangers snooping around your stuff.

    10. A pack of lavender-scented dog poop bags made with recycled materials, because you don't need to create waste with waste. They're extra thick and strong, and won't split open when you're carrying a full load.

    11. A pair of apothecary bottles that have wide mouths, so you'll easily be able to decant shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and soap into them at your local refill station. They're also the perfect stylish solution, if all the mismatched, multicoloured bottles in your shower drive you bonkers.

    14. A roll of machine-washable bamboo sheets that are stronger and more absorbent than typical paper towels. They're soft enough to wipe your face with, so you can use them in place of wash cloths, too.

    18. A pack of non-toxic, chemical-free sticky traps that'll catch unwanted pests and look cute doing it. They can be used both indoors and outdoors, so whether you're suffering from a fruit fly infestation in your kitchen or an aphid onslaught in your garden, these are sure to come in handy.

    19. A pack of biodegradable hair ties that are made of organic cotton and natural rubber, so they won't harm Mother Nature when they go MIA. Even the packaging is recyclable, so you won't need to worry about creating extra waste.

    20. A kitchen scrap bin that clips right to your countertop, making it easy to discard your crumbs and compostables, so they won't end up in your trash. It comes with a brush scraper tool, so you can effortlessly sweep away messes without getting your hands dirty.

    23. A pack of pastel silicone straws, so that you can sip your drinks in style without hurting any turtles. They can bend without breaking, meaning you don't have to worry about they getting banged around in your bag.

    25. A pair of floral snack pouches that you can use to tote around treats in your bag. Unlike regular sandwich bags, they zip closed, so you won't have to mess around with any of that press-and-seal nonsense.

    27. A set of metallic stainless steel flatware, so that you can jump on the low-waste bandwagon and finally stop asking for single-use versions when you order takeout. It'll also make your lunch situation cute enough to post on the 'gram (which, in my opinion, is a major plus).

    28. A set of rainbow crystal nail files that last ages, so you won't have to toss them out after a few uses, like regular emery boards. Reviewers say they cause less breakage than ceramic and metal alternatives and leave your nails feeling smoother than ever.

    31. A sleek compost bin that's cute enough to leave on your countertop. It snaps closed and keeps odours trapped in, so you won't be faced with gross smells if you forget to empty your bin for a night or two.

    32. A set of sponge cloths made from wood pulp to clean up your messes without even touching paper towel. They can absorb about 15 times their weight in water, making them real saviours for cooking crises and wine spills.

    33. And finally, a set of BPA-free glass meal prep containers that are safe to put in the microwave, oven, and freezer. The tops have hinged locks to keep them firmly attached, so you won't face any surprise spills in your bag.
