    23 Reusable Things That You'll Actually Use All The Time

    Because throwing everything in the trash ain't cool.

    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 non-toxic, reusable dryer balls to help soften your clothes and make them dry faster. They're good for the environment and your hydro bill.

    3. A stainless steel kitchen bar that'll remove smelly cooking odours from your hands and won't melt down like regular soap, so you can use it over and over again. You don't even need water to make it work!

    4. 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.

    5. A pack of 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!

    6. 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.

    7. A petite menstrual cup that you can wear for up to 12 hours (depending on how heavy your flow is) and will save you hundreds on tampons and pads. Many reviewers claim that it has reduced their period cramps significantly, which is obviously a huge bonus.

    8. A set of bestselling silicone cupcake liners so that you can bake all the goodies you could ever want without wasting a single wrapper. They're also great for whipping up individual omelettes or egg bites, if you want to prep your breakfasts in advance

    9. A set of silicone pastry bags that are a serious step up from flimsy single use bags. Reviewers love how durable they are and how easy they are to clean.

    10. 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.

    11. 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.

    12. 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.

    13. 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!

    14. 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 (the actual worst part of shopping).

    15. 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.

    16. A sleek metal razor that you won't have to toss out after just a few uses. Congrats! Your shower routine just got a little bougier and a lot more eco-friendly.

    17. A pair of exfoliating konjac facial sponges that will help brighten your complexion, improve your skin texture, and rid your face of impurities.

    18. A patterned sandwich pouch that's so stunning you might mistake it for a makeup bag (which you could totally use it for, too).

    19. A set of silicone face brushes that you can use to evenly apply serums, moisturizers, and masks without getting your hands all goopy. No more mess and zero waste.

    20. A set of silicone baking mats to replace your rolls and rolls of parchment paper. They'll keep food from sticking to your pans without the help of oil and are super easy to clean.

    21. A pack of machine-washable training pads so that your four-legged friend doesn't ruin your carpet while they're being house trained. They have a moisture-wicking top sheet that controls odours, so your house won't get smelly, either.

    22. A zippered wet bag that you can use to carry damp clothes or wet bathing suits. Great for taking to the pool or in your carry-on for laundry.

    23. And finally, a foldable reusable mug that's totally leakproof and will probably get you a discount at your local coffee shop. Later days, single-use cups.

    You talking to everyone who doesn't use reusable products:
