    7. These lunch boxes are made of wheat husks, making them an eco-friendly tour-de-force. Their handy little compartments will keep meals separated and Insta-worthy! They're also really great for people who are trying to meal prep instead of eating out all the time (aka me).

    8. This natural loofah means no plastic, and no pollution. Loofahs are incredibly resilient, so this bath accessory will last MUCH longer than traditional mesh loofahs. Its exfoliating properties will give their skin a healthy glow and boost circulation, too!

    9. These baking sheets will make any baker jump for joy. They're non-stick and flexible, and will replace a whole host of wasteful products (looking at you, aluminum foil). Some reviewers also mention that their static cling makes storage a breeze!

    10. These microfibre cloths might not be a ~glamorous~ gift, but they're definitely very useful. They're non-abrasive, and incredibly absorbent. The ultra soft finish leaves behind no lint or streaks, either.
