    33 Long-Lasting Products To Swap Out For The Disposable Things In Your Life

    Saving the world, one reusable platypus-shaped tea infuser at a time.

    1. A sweet lil' purple reusable Keurig cup designed to work universally in all of its models, so you can not only avoid plastic waste from the disposable cups, but you can save a whoooole lotta dough on expensive K-Cups you've been buying in bulk.

    2. 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.

    3. A rose gold rechargeable electric lighter you can use to replace all your old gas ones. This one is not only chic as heck, but completely flameless, and made with a long stem so you can use it to light gas burners and larger candles without dealing with an open flame.

    4. A pair of comfy period-proof underwear designed to hold two tampons' worth of period blood that will save you a ton of bucks on pads and tampons in the long run — not to mention on replacement underwear from pairs that couldn't handle stains from leakage.

    5. A chic glass-based, silicone-topped reusable coffee cup made with all sustainable and recyclable materials and designed to fit neatly under at-home coffee machines, so you can grab and go.

    6. Or for people on the move, a reusable Starbucks cold cup to replace the disposable ones (sorry to the Starbucks mermaid!!). Honestly, you deserve to have all the magic of Disney at your literal fingertips when you chug your cold brew in the morning anyway.

    7. A pretty pink, super-soft Makeup Eraser to spare you from buying cotton swabs and washcloths with short lives — this long-lasting version wipes makeup right off your face with nothing but water and a gentle scrub. (I've personally had mine for a year and it's still going strong!)

    8. A 42-page Rocketbook Fusion reusable notebook that works the same way all their products do — you can write on its pages the way you would a regular notebook, upload the page onto your devices, and wipe the notebook clean with water to use all over again. Bonus: You can get it in a bunch of fun colors 🌈.

    9. A reusable microfiber Swiffer mop pad that reviewers love not only because it's ready for action again right after a wash cycle, but because it picks up a *ton* more dirt, gunk, and debris than the disposable mops do.

    10. Plus a reusable Swiffer duster head to save money and waste on replacements —this is made with a nonfraying fleece fabric built to pick up dust more effectively and at a broader range than the OG version, thanks to the static it naturally generates.

    11. A set of pastel rainbow silicone cupcake liners for the avid bakers of cupcakes, mini quiches, and bite-sized goodies who don't want to go through disposable paper liners 🧁🌈.

    12. A set of silicone stretch lids for all the leftovers stashed in cups, bowls, and even Instant Pot accessories — not only will it keep it fresh longer than a disposable plastic cover, but it's machine washable as well!

    13. A set of reusable silicone Stasher bags you can get in a ton of bright, fun colors and 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.

    14. Or a kid-friendly version, aka these stand-up silicone containers perfect for stashing and grabbing snacks — they zip up to stay fresh, but are lidless to avoid spilling mishaps (and, of course, the losing of the lids, which is a time-honored sport among all children in strollers).

    15. A food storage box that folds discretely into a bag so if you ever find yourself with leftovers, you don't have to use Styrofoam or paper boxes — you can just pop it in this and be on your merry sustainable way.

    16. 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~.

    17. 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.

    18. A set of animal-shaped silicone tea infusers to cut down on your single-use tea bags and the wrappers they come in. (Tag yourself, I am the platypus.)

    19. A no-waste dish block you can keep on the side of your sink and rub your brush into — it'll create suds that cut through residue and grease *and* keep all your dishes streak-free and squeaky clean (plus no more wasting plastic on dish soap!).

    20. A set of adorable, long-lasting Bee's Wrap food wraps that not only prevent food waste with a body warmth-activated wax sealing that keeps produce and leftovers fresh, but will save you money on one-use plastic alternatives, too.

    21. A set of five machine-washable, rip-proof, suuuper-colorful grocery bags to replace your use of plastic and paper bags. Plus, they fold into neat little squares so you can easily keep them in your car, purse, or bag!

    22. A sleek rose gold waste-free safety razor — these are designed to last a lifetime, so you don't have to waste disposable ones anymore. The only thing you need to replace are the double-edged razor blades, which are designed to give you a close (gentle!) shave to prevent ingrown hairs and skin irritation.

    23. A silicone baking mat for your sheet pan, so you can roast giant batches of veggies with all your favorite sauces and seasonings without wasting parchment paper to prevent a big ole mess.

    24. A Bacon Sponge, aka a miracle towel that absorbs ten times its weight in liquid and will pretty much gobble up all your bacon grease before you can blink. Now you don't have to sacrifice half a paper towel roll when the fam wants BLTs!

    25. A Soda Stream so you can recreate (and improve upon!) all your favorite sodas and seltzers without sheepishly dumping eight zillion cans into the recycling every week.

    26. A set of reusable food huggers so you can rescue your half-eaten apples and peppers from a soggy fate *without* wasting another Ziploc bag (or taking a full reusable bag out of commission).

    27. A set of chemical-free, naturally activated charcoal and bamboo air freshening bags you can use to eliminate odors in your home instead of getting wasteful plug-ins every month or using sprays.

    28. An internet-beloved time-marked water bottle you can get in a bajillion different colors so not only will you prevent plastic bottle waste, but you'll stay hydrated during the day without it feeling like a total chore. A lot of reviewers mention how easy it is to access the mouthpiece by popping a lil' button on the lid, too.

    29. A popular water-resistant Under Armour face mask that's wayyyy comfier and more breathable than the disposable ones — this is designed to sit off your lips, giving you plenty of room to breathe without getting fabric sucked into your mouth. It's also made with the company's Iso-Chill fabric, so it doesn't overheat despite being bulkier than other masks.

    30. A set of glass meal prep containers so you can finally kick the habit of using plastic containers without half as much durability. Bonus: These are also safe in the oven and the microwave, meaning you can cook, reheat, and eat out of 'em without ever bothering to go find a plate (and these lids are tighter than the Pentagon).

    31. A reusable bamboo pee rag (dubbed a "Wander Wipe") you can use on long hikes or camping trips to avoid wasting toilet paper — it's specially designed with a waterproof exterior to keep your hand from getting wet, and a foldable interior to keep the inside from getting exposed.

    32. A set of organic bamboo washable nursing pads for leakproof, comfy protection *without* the extra waste of disposable versions. They're even backed with a waterproof layer to keep clothes dry!
