    25 Eco-Friendly Things You'll Actually Use Every Day

    Sweaters, sponges, toilet paper, and more.

    1. A set of colourful travel flatware so that you don't have to waste a ton of plastic takeout cutlery. It'll also make your lunch situation the envy of all your coworkers 'cause it's so dang pretty.

    2. A set of plant-based scrub sponges made from cacti. They cost only a little more than the sponges you'd buy at the grocery store, but they'll last a lot longer.

    3. A budget-friendly fleece sweatshirt that uses 5% recycled plastic in its fabric. It's pill-resistant, so you don't have to worry about it getting messed up after a few washes.

    4. A pack of reusable bamboo makeup-removing pads that'll replace your regular old cotton pads. They're machine washable, and each wipe can be reused up to 2,000 times!

    5. A set of zip-sealed sandwich bags designed so that you can use them over and over again. They're leakproof, so you can store soups and sauces in 'em, too.

    6. A jar of Canadian-made natural deodorant that'll last you three to six months, and is safe to use on sensitive pits.

    7. A set of 100% biodegradable cotton swabs that are made of renewable bamboo wood and cotton. Time to kiss your regular Q-tips goodbye.

    8. A 2-in-1 patterned yoga mat and towel made of natural tree rubber, recycled microfibre, and water-based inks. It can fold up small enough to fit in a suitcase, making it great for traveling.

    9. A set of charcoal deodorizer bags to keep your home, locker, car, or fridge smelling fresh. They prevent the buildup of harmful mould, mildew, bacteria, and fungi in closed spaces. Just a little bag solving big problems.

    10. A flat water flask with silicone accents that make it easy to grip from any angle. Not only does it look cute, it'll save you from having to buy a single-use bottle every time you get thirsty outside.

    11. A set of three cotton tote bags that are a fashionable and eco-friendly alternative to plastic grocery bags. They can fold up small enough to fit in your handbag, so you can keep one on you at all times.

    12. A pack of three-ply bamboo toilet paper that's softer than most recycled or tree-free options.

    13. A pair of high-performance ear buds made of wood and recyclable aluminum. Eco-friendly and a lot cheaper than some brands of earpods (just sayin’).

    14. A set of biodegradable toothbrushes with handles made from environmentally-sustainable timber. Even the packaging is recyclable, so you don't have to worry about creating more waste.

    15. A set of microfibre face cloths that'll replace your single-use makeup wipes. You don't even need makeup remover for these to work — just run them under warm water and get down to business. They'll even remove waterproof mascara!

    16. 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.

    17. A set of mouldable beeswax food wraps that'll keep your food fresh for longer, and eliminate your need for cling film. Just use the heat of your hands to put them into action.

    18. A set of cruelty-free makeup brushes that are made from renewable bamboo.

    19. A set of mesh produce bags made from recycled water bottles. Now you won't have to fumble around with the annoying filmy ones at the grocery store.

    20. A set of ultra-long stainless steel straws so that you can stop using plastic ones every time you grab an iced coffee or bubble tea. These ones have removable soft silicone tips to make them more comfortable to drink from.

    21. A pack of magic sponge cloths to clean up all your messes. They can absorb 20 times their own weight in water, which means you won't have to use up an entire roll of paper towels if you have a cooking crisis or a wine spill.

    22. A nonslip bathtub mat that'll keep you from slipping in your tub while you shower. This one has drainage holes that provide fast water runoff. No more standing in a puddle!

    23. A set of reusable Keurig filter cups so you can brew your favourite coffee in single portions. You don't even need a coffee filter with these.

    24. A vacuum-insulated travel mug so that you can take your coffee to go. It has a leakproof slider lid, making it easy to open and close, even when you're on the road.

    25. And finally, a natural and cruelty-free surface cleaner with plant-based ingredients to help rid your home of germs, and keep things smelling fresh.
