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

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

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    6. This dish bar that'll help you scrub up after meals, while forgoing wasteful packaging. It's free of synthetics and scented with zesty grapefruit essential oil, so your dishes will smell as good as they look.

    7. A pair of silicone baking mats that'll help you say "good riddance!" to annoying aluminum foil and parchment paper. They're flexible, reusable, and best of all, won't tear when you're trying to flip your food.

    8. A set of slim metal straws that'll make you wonder why you ever used plastic ones in the first place. Not only will they stand up to all kinds of beverages without ever getting rusty, the kit also comes with a handy cleaning brush to keep your straws in tip-top shape.

    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.

    10. A set of eco-friendly food containers that'll let you (finally) ditch those plastic ones in your cupboard. They're made of sturdy borosilicate glass and have silicone-rimmed bamboo lids that'll minimize spills and leaks.

    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).

    12. A set of candy-coloured nesting bowls that'll never rust or chip. They're made of biodegradable bamboo fibre and can be tossed into the dishwasher after you're done whipping up a delish meal.

    13. These stretchy silicone lids that'll slide right over your bowls of leftovers and keep them fresh 'til you're ready to chow down. They work with hot food, can be used in the microwave, and are flexible enough to fit over just about anything (even a watermelon!).

    14. This powdered detoxing face mask that'll gently draw pore-clogging impurities out of your skin, while promoting circulation and speeding up healing. It uses activated charcoal and bentonite clay in tandem with kelp, spirulina, and burdock root — it's basically a green juice for your face!

    15. This minimalist tumbler that'll let you take your caffeine on the go (and skip the non-recyclable coffee shop versions). It's decked out in a matte silicone outer layer that'll keep it from slipping out of your hand during brisk lunch time walks.

    16. A set of sleek bamboo toothbrushes that'll make your routine a lil' more green. Each one is tipped with soft, BPA-free bristles that'll keep your chompers looking their best (while being kind to the earth, too).

    17. This laundry egg that'll get your clothes and linens looking brand-spankin' new. It's packed with chemical-free mineral cleaning pellets that'll help you skip the harsh detergents and powders.

    18. A chic compost bin that'll help you make your own fertilizer (and keep organic waste out of your trash bin). The charcoal carbon filter helps to keep odours locked inside, instead of stinking up your entire kitchen.

    19. These reusable nail polish remover pads that'll help you break up with their wasteful cotton cousins for good. They're made of textured bamboo felt that'll play nice with your remover and easily scrub away all kinds of polish (even the glittery kind).

    20. An oversized water bottle that'll help you stay hydrated throughout the day. It has a huge capacity (enough for five cups!) and is totally insulated, so you won't have to suffer through another tepid beverage.

    21. A full set of ultra-slim cutlery that's designed to replace all those plastic forks and knives in your takeout bag. It's made of stainless steel, so it won't bend or break when you're chowing down.

    22. An underarm soap bar that'll fight stubborn stink and help you transition to natural deodorant. It uses activated charcoal and apple cider vinegar to kill bacteria, so your skin will stay fresh as a daisy (no matter how sweaty you get).

    23. This period care bundle that'll make your monthly present a little more bearable. Whether you're suffering through a migraine, cramping, or breaking out, consider this set your first line of defense.

    24. A set of reusable organic cotton pads that'll help you ditch the single-use versions for good. The best part? They won't shed their fibres, so you won't have to pick shreds out of your eyes after removing your makeup.

    25. These food-safe silicone bags that'll give you a place to stash snacks, fruit, makeup, or even wet clothes. The pinch-lock system protects your stuff, so you could even use them to cook your dinner ~en sous-vide~, if that's more your vibe.

    26. A pair of bath bombs that'll turn your ordinary bath into a luxe soak. They're made of all-natural ingredients, so you won't need to worry about them irritating your skin or causing annoying flare-ups.

    27. A trio of reusable nylon bags, because let's be honest — NO ONE needs that many plastic bags. These will never rip or tear when you're lugging groceries home from the store, and thanks to their incredibly slim design, they'll tuck right into your pocket or purse.

    28. A bottle of produce wash that'll remove the pesticides, preservatives, and other gunk living on your fruits and veggies. It's completely odourless and tasteless, so it won't ruin the flavour of your yummy greens.

    29. A dry oil that'll soften your down-there hair and make breakouts, irritation, and ingrown hairs nothing but a distant memory. It's completely residue free and won't stain your clothes, so you can smooth it on and get on with your day.

    31. A T-shirt dress that'll keep you comfy (and stylish) on the days when wearing pants just isn't going to happen. It's made of silky-smooth eucalyptus fibres that are not only free of chemicals and dyes, but are super breathable, too.

    32. A pack of compressed towels that'll expand to their full size with just a few teaspoons of water. These compostable wipes are completely hypoallergenic and pH balanced, meaning they're perfect for every body part.

    33. This acne-fighting facial oil that'll calm, soothe, hydrate, and help prevent scarring. The star of the show is the black cumin seed oil — it's naturally anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, so it'll chill out even the feistiest zit.

    34. This flexible ice pack that'll conform to whatever container you put it in. Its fabric sleeve means it won't get covered in condensation (or make your food soggy in the process), and will never crack or split like its plastic cousins.

    35. This detoxifying charcoal deodorant that'll pull gunk out of your pores and keep you smelling fresh as a daisy. It's extra gentle on skin (even the sensitive kind!), won't stain your clothes, and contains zero synthetic ingredients.

    37. This reusable cloth that'll do basically anything you need it to — use it as an eco-friendly alternative to gift wrap, swaddle a baby, or tie it like a scarf on cooler days. It's super soft to the touch, too!
