    38 Of The Best Eco-Friendly Products You Can Grab At Indigo

    We've only got one planet, y'all.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pack of eco-friendly detergent strips that are as gentle on skin as they are on the planet. Since you only need one strip per load of laundry, you won't need to mess around with spill-y liquid detergents ever again.

    Get a pack of 32 strips from Indigo for $16.95 (also available in a fragrance-free option).

    2. This 4-in-1 face mist that'll hydrate, tone, set your makeup, AND give your skin a refresh after a long day. I adore the herbaceous scent, and TBH, it leaves my skin looking its very best (even if I decide to go makeup free that day).

    Some face mists just sorta ~sit~ on skin, but this one feels like it actually continues to work after it's dried down. I have combination skin and don't ask me how, but this spray manages to keep my forehead from getting oily, all while making my cheekbones look like the star of the show.

    Get it from Indigo for $29.95.

    3. A pack of sponge cloths that are way more absorbent than paper towels (and less wasteful, too). Because they're super durable, you can use them to scrub dishes after dinner, or just to clean up spills and messes.

    They're also washable and reusable, so they'll last you for months (up to three, to be exact). And once they're at the end of their life, just toss them in the recycling with other paper products!

    Get a pack of four from Indigo for $24 (available in three styles).

    4. An organic sunscreen stick that'll protect your skin from harmful UV rays (while keeping your hands clean in the process). It'll absorb right into your skin, leaving behind zero residue, stickiness, or greasiness.

    @saltandstone / Via instagram.com

    Think of it like protective skincare — it contains sunflower and vitamin E oils, plush cocoa seed and shea butters to keep your skin feeling hydrated and happy. It's also reef safe, water resistant, and sweat proof!

    Get it from Indigo for $25 (available in two formulas).

    5. An all-natural wrinkle-releasing mist that'll save you from dragging out your ironing kit. This plant-based formula works in as little as five minutes and smells like zippy lemongrass, too.

    Get it from Indigo for $13 (refills also available).

    9. A set of wooly dryer balls that'll soften your linens, help reduce static, and remove wrinkles — all while saving you tons of money on your energy bills. Since they're so absorbent, they'll suck moisture out of your wet laundry and help you cut down on drying time, too.

    11. An overnight dry shampoo that'll absorb sweat, dirt, and oil while you're snoozin'. By spritzing it on before bedtime, you'll allow the activated charcoal and natural powders to absorb into your mane, so you'll wake up with fresher locks (no rubbing or brushing necessary).

    They don't have any BPA (an industrial chemical that's present in a LOT of plastic products), meaning they're safe for things like fresh fruits and veggies. I love that they're dishwasher safe, so I don't have to spend aeons cleaning debris out of them.
