    1. A sleek compost bin with an adjustable air vent you can mount on your cabinet door if you prefer to keep it out of sight. (Though, it's far from an eyesore!)


    Promising review: "I never knew how awful my metal compost bin was until I got this beauty! Easy to open with one hand, the bag stays in place, and it's lightweight. Everything that's wrong with the traditional countertop compost bin, this bin solves. Life changing." β€”Emma

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    2. A pack of 100% natural cellulose Swedish dishcloths to use instead of the notoriously germ-ridden sponge and extremely wasteful paper towel.


    Promising review: "These are awesome and I don’t know why I didn’t learn to use these in the kitchen and bathroom ages ago. They wipe down countertops, sinks, and everything, leaving hardly any water behind and pick up even the smallest of debris, lint etc. These are great quality and just as good as the Wet-It Branch." β€”Shopper56

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (for three; available in 12 designs).

    3. A set of natural-cork coasters to go sustainable and "coffee-ring"-free.

    Get it from Humankind for $12.95 (available in peppermint, lemongrass, citrus lavender, unscented or as a variety pack for $32.95).

    5. Or, a water-activated powder shampoo for a sustainable alternative to the average bottle, which is 80% water.

    Owa Hair Care

    Get it from Owa Hair Care for $29.

    6. A set of portable straws made of platinum-grade silicone (arguably superior to glass, stainless steel, or bamboo alternatives) so you can convert your whole family to an eco-friendly lifestyle.


    Includes: 10 straws, four travel cases, and four clean-up squeegees. (Oh, and everything is completely dishwasher-safe!)

    Get it from Food52 for $25.

    7. Or a bamboo cutlery set that'll come with a metal straw and cleaning brush (the whole sustainable fam!).


    Promising review: "This is the perfect eco-friendly set. The separate pouches make for clean and cute storage. Which makes this ideal for picnic lunches at the park or camping trips! I’ve used straws like these before and love them. They are easy to clean with the straw brushes provided. Please note these work great for your typical 8-12 oz cups." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. A recycled gift wrap set embedded with hundreds of Wildflower seeds β€” just cover the paper with 1/8" of loose topsoil instead of tossing it in the trash β€” so the gift recipient will walk away with two gifts. Three, if they consider saving the earth one.


    Promising review: "I just received some more gift wrap that grows! I recently started using it to wrap the organic products that I make and sell for my small aromatherapy business. I have actually gotten phone calls from clients who are excited about how beautiful their products look upon arrival and how excited they are about the wrap that grows! The paper is beautiful and is perfect for those who care about our earth and want to give a gift that sets all others apart. And, just an FYI β€” even though it’s thicker, it’s easy to work with and can also be used instead of tissue paper." β€”Debby M

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    9. A pair of New Balance X Reformation dad sneakers that'll make you literally consider your footprint β€” these kicks are made using eco-friendly materials like post-consumer recycled polyester and EVA/BLOOM algae.


    Get them from Reformation for $100 (available in three colorways and in size 5-10).

    10. A handy touch-less "Fohm" dispenser with a paraben-free cleansing solution to turn your existing toilet paper into an environmentally friendly version of "flushable wipes" (which pose a serious threat to marine life, as they don't properly break down when flushed).


    Get it from Fohm for $59 (or get a three-month supply of cleansing fluid for $21).

    11. A variety pack of tasty gum that'll cut out the wasteful plastic β€” Simply Gum uses packaging made of wild harvested chicle (tree sap).


    Flavors include: peppermint, cinnamon, ginger, fennel, maple, and coffee

    Get it from Amazon for $14.90 (for six; 90 pieces in total).

    12. A two-sided cutting board (your new best eco-friendly friend) for the freedom to choose between a juice groove and a clever phone slot.

    13. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker designed with FSC-certified wood and recyclable aluminum housing for a host of green perks that are music to my ears.


    Promising review: "I received this as a Christmas gift and I love it. The sound is great for its size, it is very clear, and I was very surprised by the bass. I also like that it's small enough that I can clip it on my purse and it's not bulky or annoying. It has a very fun look to it as well β€” it suits my style. I especially like the wood. I have had very good luck with Marley products in the past so I am very happy to have received this as a gift. I take it with me to the beach, to do yoga in the backyard, to go for a walk, to listen to while cooking, painting, reading, or working out and other stuff like that, and it's very convenient." β€”Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "Best cup of coffee I've had. I have a collection of pour overs, french press, Vietnamese drip... this one combines all three for a great tasting cup. Not super filtered like a Chemex, but not too oily like with a french press. Highly recommend!" β€”N.J. Terry

    Get it from Amazon for $69.

    17. A delightful tea infuser mug made with biodegradable wheat straw and recyclable borosilicate glass to avoid tea leaves (it comes with detachable tea filters) and unnecessary waste.


    Promising review: "I purchased this to use with my loose leaf teas from Adagio and it is perfect! I just pop my tea in the little fish part and pour my hot water into the mug and let it steep. It’s really fun to watch the tea color slowly spread throughout the water in the cup and everyone who has seen it loves to watch it too! The fish has plenty of room for the teaspoon of tea leaves that I use. It’s relatively easy to empty (I dump the leave so into a cup to go into the composter) and comes out spotless after a trip through the dishwasher. The mug is a nice size and the handle stays nice and cool even when the mug is filled with boiling water. The lid is adorable and keeps the tea piping hot until brewing is complete and I’m ready to drink it." β€”Beth

    Get it from Amazon for $12.89.

    18. A pack of no-plastic bamboo toothbrushes (in an 80% recycled raw-material box) that'll look as good on your counter as they feel against your gums.


    Promising review: "This is the first time I have ever bought a toothbrush and found it to be COMFORTABLE ! It is so soothing. Having dental issues from Lupus, I never paid much attention to how a toothbrush felt, until now. I LOVE them!" β€”Jean Fry

    Get it from Amazon for $7.93 (for four).

    19. And to go with that: a naturally sourced toothpaste and tube roller from a company that is committed to sustainability and local production to make you finally care about toothpaste. Try resisting this pastel and Helvetica packaging β€” you can't!


    Promising review: "I love that the metal tube is recyclable. I give this as a gift. It feels fancy. It tastes mildly minty and isn't foamy. It cleans my teeth better than any other toothpaste I've tried, natural or otherwise." β€”

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    20. A minimalist travel tumbler so you can cut down on buying single-use plastic bottles when you're on the go.

I find it really satisfying to snug these onto cut lemons and peppers and zucchini β€” no bulky containers in my fridge or plastic wrap to throw away. And my half-vegetables look so adorable with their colorful huggers. Just love these!" β€”Melissa Goldman

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97+ (for four; available in three colorways).

At lunch, he opened his bag and found that his container of soup had opened and his fruit was floating in liquid. He poured the soup out and rinsed the inside of the thing with water, and was so surprised [that it didn't leak out] that he showed it to me β€”Β and had me smell the inside of the bag when he got home.
