    20 Small And Reusable Products That You Can Keep In Your Bag

    Your bag just got a little more eco-friendly.

    1. A set of stainless steel utensils that are both aesthetically pleasing and super functional. You can use them to eat your lunch instead of the single-use plastic ones, and they come with a little container, so you can carry around them with you.

    2. A silicone food bag, if you want to take your favourite munchies to go. It has an airtight seal that'll keep your snacks from leaking, so you won't have to clean up crumbs or fruit juice from the bottom of your bag later.

    3. A facial roller that'll render your blotting sheets obsolete. The volcanic stone will help absorb excess oils on your skin, leaving you with a flawless matte finish. Plus, the rolling action will give your face a mini massage, which is always a bonus.

    4. A glass coffee cup, so you can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while you're on the go. It comes with a heat-resistant silicone sleeve, and it's small enough to store in your bag for future caffeine cravings.

    5. Or a collapsible cup that'll take up even less real estate in your bag. It's big enough to hold a large cup of coffee and comes with a flexible straw for the times you order an iced coffee or other cold beverage.

    6. A pack of food wraps that'll preserve your small and awkwardly-shaped snacks you didn't get a chance to finish like cheese, fruit, and sandwiches. They respond to the warmth and pressure of your hand to shape and seal them.

    7. An eco-friendly notebook that you can scan using the Rocketbook app to create digital copies of all your notes. The paper is reusable, so once you're finished with your notes, just wipe the paper with a damp cloth to erase everything.

    8. A set of reusable silicone straws, so you never have to use a plastic one again. They're super flexible, easy to clean, and a great alternative to metal straws, which can be hard on teeth and change temperature depending on whether you’re drinking a hot or cold beverage.

    9. Or a set of straws that are made of durable borosilicate glass. They come in a variety of beautiful colours that'll make anything you drink look a little fancier.

    10. A pack of dental brushes that'll help you remove every last piece of food from your chompers. They're more durable than floss and toothpicks and you can use them for up to two weeks before you have to replace them.

    11. A pack of shopping bags that'll come in handy on the days you make an impromptu purchase of groceries or other items. Each one can hold up to 50 pounds, but they fold up into tiny squares, so they won’t take up a lot of space in your bag.

    12. And a pack of mesh bags that'll hold your fruits and veggies. They're made of 100% cotton and are way more durable than single-use bags, so they won't tear if you put a bunch of produce in one bag.

    13. A menstrual cup that'll replace the stash of pads and tampons you normally carry around. The extra-large size will give you enough protection on your heaviest days, and reviewers say it's softer and more comfortable than other cups they've tried.

    14. A pack of flannel cloths that'll save you from buying paper towels, napkins, and tissues. They're made of cotton, which makes them soft and absorbent. Plus, they have round, stitched edges that'll keep them from fraying, so they last longer.

    15. A waterproof bag that'll store your wet, dirty clothes and other linens until you get home to wash them. They're made of durable polyester that'll trap moisture and odours insides, so they don't stink up the rest of your bag.

    16. A Nalgene water bottle that'll keep you hydrated throughout the day. It's practically indestructible and the narrow mouth makes it easier to drink from without spilling water on yourself.

    17. A pack of silicone tea bags that'll give you the convenience of disposable bags, without the waste. They'll keep even your finest loose leaf tea from spilling into your drink and they come in a variety of colours, so you can fill them with different flavours and know which one is which.

    18. A placemat that'll sit on your lap like a napkin, making your meal a mess-free affair. It has a pocket at the end to hold your utensils and it rolls up, so you can easily stash it in your bag when you're not using it.

    19. A pack of mini containers that'll hold two ounces of dressing, dips, or condiments, so you'll always have hot sauce in your bag (swag!). They're small enough to put in your lunch bag or backpack, and they have airtight lids, making them completely leakproof.

    20. And finally, a retractable lint roller that comes in a more travel-friendly size compared to regular lint rollers. It'll fit easily into your bag, so you can keep your clothes fuzz free, even when you're on the go.
