1. GreenUP, a subscription that'll provide you with the resources and inspiration you'll need to go zero-waste in one area of your life each month.

What it is: A subscription that'll help you to use less plastic in a different area of your life each month, via curated boxes with four to six eco-friendly, reusable items — like cotton mesh produce bags, bamboo travel utensils, stainless steel lunch boxes, and more.Promising review: "Our first GreenUp box came last week and we couldn’t be more satisfied. It was filled with fun, quality products that we have already used multiple times. We’re most excited about the cotton produce bags and the (super cute) bamboo mug. We are the kind of people that always forget reusable bags in the house, but we’ve been so excited to use the produce bags and canvas tote that we always grab them before we leave the house! The bamboo mug has replaced all plastic to go coffee cups from our favorite cafe. Cant wait to see what the GreenUP team sends us next! 10/10 would recommend this subscription box." —ZoeyPrice: $42.95+/month
