A pack of long-lasting and biodegradable
plant-based sponges without added colors and chemicals so you can work on cleaning the planet while cleaning your kitchen counters.
Promising review: "I was very glad to discover the Twist sponge a couple of years ago because it is biodegradable and yet absolutely not a compromise on quality. I had tried a number of other 'eco' sponges and they almost put my family off from the idea altogether, but now everybody's happy. And finding it at Walmart — cheaper than on Amazon or anywhere else I've shopped — made it even better." — FanOfEcoCleaning
Price: $6 (for three sponges)
modular cubby made from zBoards (99% post-consumer recycled paper) that'll work for a whole host of organization needs.
Promising review: "I bought this cube to put on an open shelf under my TV. I wanted to hide all the ugly wires from the various devices used on the entertainment center. It is perfect. I bundled all the wires behind the cube and placed a decorative vase inside it. What an improvement to my family room. The cube arrived within a few days and I was very pleased at how easy it was to assemble. It is remarkably sturdy and extremely lightweight. I'm looking around my house and trying to find more uses for this great, versatile cube. I am going to order some for my closets to organize the jumble of stuff on the floors. I might even try to hang one on the wall for a light-duty shelf in my craft room." — ccgardner
travel tumbler so you can cut down on buying bottled beverages.
Promising review: "The Rambler is a work of art that could hold up to tons of abuse. This is not only a nice looking water bottle but the quality of the build is beyond words. Although expensive, I'll be saving up to buy a second as this bottle will last a lifetime (plus my daughter is quick to take it in the morning if I don't hide it). Well done Yeti. Another fine cooler made for drinks." — Kevin Price: $36.33

A pack of
reusable glass drinking straws, which'll give you the nudge you need to finally ditch the plastic.
Includes two cleaning brushes.
Promising review: "l am thoroughly delighted with these straws. They fit all sizes of my beverage glasses and I love the option of straight or bent. I particularly love the fact that I'm not sending plastic straws into the waste system to harm our oceans or animals." — Patrick
Price: $7.50 (for a set of six)
reusable tote to take around town and use instead of a plastic bag at the grocery store.
Easter eggs made from 100% renewable content (meaning they're plant-based and fully compostable after use) so your holiday can be extra meaningful — not ~plasticky~ and superficial.
Includes: pan paddle, spurtle, solid spoon, and slotted spoon Promising review: "I love these, used every one. The spoons are really deep and hold large amounts of soup or gravies. The angles on the flat utensils are great for stirring pasta down to the bottom to prevent sticking!! — Nick
Price: $32.29 (for four)
Promising review: "I love everything about this watermelon fluoride-free kid's toothpaste. The smell is good, the taste is good enough to eat, and it truly cleans so well. It makes my sons' breath so much better after they brush their teeth. After my 4-year-old brushed his teeth he was so happy and said that it made his teeth so sparkly! We can't wait to get more!" — fairylova326
Price: $7.92 (for two)
Or, for anyone who wants in on the fun regardless of age: a popular
activated charcoal toothpaste (derived from — you guessed it! — bamboo) can do one helluva job removing plaque.
Promising review: "My 8-year-old had yellow teeth that would not improve no matter how much she brushed. After just one brushing with this toothpaste, we saw instant results." — Nubia
A set of
reusable Starbucks cups so you can opt out of a new disposable cup every coffee run.
Promising review: "I love these cups for coffee on the go, whether it's from home or from Starbucks. (One bonus is you get a discount when you bring these cups to Starbucks.) The lid is snug and you have to put your whole palm on the top to push it onto the cup, (kind of like opening kid-proof medicine bottles) but it's definitely leak-proof! These could be great gifts for coffee lovers, and the best part is that we can reduce waste with reusable cups." — littlefoot
Price: $8.94 (for five; available in blue and white)
A bag of long-lasting, organic
soap nuts to take the place of standard laundry detergent.
Price: $33.94 (for two 32-oz. drawstring bags)

transparent office tape made of 65% recycled or plant-based material — look at you, you're on a ~roll~ with this recycling thing.
Promising review: "It meets the high standards that I expect from Scotch, and I like the clean, clear strip for repairing things I need to see through well. I'm happy to know that it is more environmentally friendly, too." — BD Jeepers
Price: $24.81 (for 12)
A set of
nonstick pans that'll skip out on the toxic chemicals.
Includes: 8", 10" and 12" pans
Price: $35.87 (for three)
indoor food compost bin you won't mind leaving out on the counter.

A BPA-free bamboo
bento box you can throw in the microwave and dishwasher.
Price: $21.99 (available in black and white)
A set of washable
mesh bags to hold your produce.
A BuzzFeed Reviews–approved
bidet, because it's 2019 and cleaning your butt with scraps of paper is kind of shitty!
Promising review: "It cleans you better than toilet paper, is easy to install, and saves trees. It was easy to connect the toilet water line to the bidet and easy to use the bidet. The bidet allows adjusted water flow and can be used to clean itself. I believe it will also reduce the need to wash your clothing as often because the bidet cleans your body and removes sweat. It has taken me a while to adjust to this, but I like how clean I am and the saving of trees. Be careful of a strong stream adjustment and enjoy your new world." — bandbi Price: $30.99 (available in blue and white)

swivel chair made of ECO leather — a natural, harm-free aging process — for a sophisticated office accent.
Promising review: "This chair is made from ECO leather, a natural process of preserving the leather versus the harsh chemicals used with standard methods. Well, the chair exceeds my expectations! The leather is soft, the padding is thick, and it looks great! — NH3717
Price: $143.16 (available in three colors)
And a two-pack of
Meyer's laundry detergent, which is biodegradable, plant-derived, and not least of all, very lovely to smell.
@mrsmeyerscleanday / Via
Promising review: "I absolutely love Mrs Meyers products. I recently tried the laundry detergent for the first time. I was extremely surprised when I washed my dog blankets and it removed the odor. I've tried every product on the market and homemade remedies and nothing has worked for me. Thanks, Mrs. Meyers!" — Roofis
Price: $15.34 (for 64oz; available in six scents)
