    31 Affordable Environmentally-Friendly Products Reviewers Swear By

    Including unbreakable plates, a shampoo bar, and suuuuper soft undies.

    1. A set of three adorable, machine-washable Swedish dish cloths that are super absorbent and designed with a cross-hatch pattern for easier scrubbing. Each one of these can replace over a DOZEN paper towel rolls. The Brawny paper towel man is shaking.

    2. Or a roll of reusable bamboo paper towels designed to replace six whole human months of them, since each one is washable and reusable up to 120 (!!) times.

    3. A set of reusable silicone Stasher bags you can get in a ton of different sizes to help significantly cut down your plastic use, saving both your money *and* the environment. Plus, these work in more than just the fridge — they're freezer- and microwave-safe, too.

    4. A pair of period-proof underwear with full leak protection that'll significantly reduce your use of pads and tampons, even if you're only able to replace them with these for just a day of your period.

    5. A set of delightfully rainbow reusable metal straws complete with a traveling case and cleaning brush, so you can not only replace disposable straws, but do it with ~style~.

    12 rainbow tinted metal straws in four different shapes, a cloth case, and two straw-cleaning brushes

    6. Or a sleek, compact reusable straw keychain, so you can help save the environment AND make it that much easier to find your darn keys when you're rooting around for them in the abyss of your purse.

    7. A moisturizing semi-matte lipstick that's also vegan, paraben-free, nontoxic, and cruelty-free, and comes in so many tones you're bound to find your ~perfect nude~.

    8. A set of lightweight, degradable wheat straw plates that are also — much like Kimmy Schmidt — unbreakable.

    9. A sleek compost bin you can keep next to your kitchen sink, with an easy-grip handle and a flip lid that prevents odors from wafting out (I'm looking at you, banana peels).

    10. A set of see-through mesh produce bags so you don't have to waste plastic using the ones in the grocery store.

    13. A bamboo cutlery set that rolls into a tidy carrying case, so you can take it with you on camping trips or just keep it in your bag just in case (in this world of many delicious ice creams, you'll never regret having a spare spoon on hand, TBH).
