Nicole F. - Ethique Bars
The Ethique bars are game changers! I personally use the shampoo and conditioners which is the equivalent of 3 bottles of liquid shampoo in one bar. They are also designed to last three to six times longer than bottled alternatives! The shampoos make my hair feel super clean without stripping it while the conditioners leave my hair feeling silky soft. I also love that the brand is certified cruelty-free and vegan! Ethique also now has cleaning bars as well like this Multi-Purpose Kitchen Spray.
Instead of cling wrap or foil, I've been using these reusable silicone food lids! It keeps food and leftovers fresh without the need for the disposable plastic. They're soft and flexible, made from 100% food-grade silicone and they're suitable for the microwave and they are dishwasher safe.
These dishcloths are perfect to reduce your paper waste. It's made from natural cellulose cotton making them ideal to replace sponges and paper towels! They absorb 20 times their own weight and are biodegradable. It's been so helpful with my cleaning at home. Once used, you can wash it in the dishwasher or toss it in the microwave to disinfect.
Sarah - Stasher Reusable Silicone Bags
To replace plastic Ziplock bags, I swear by these reusable silicone bags by Stasher. There are endless use to these bags. I personally like to use it to keep snacks in but I've also used it to store jewellery and makeup on trips. Bonus, they can be used to heat food in the microwave, store in the freezer while keeping the contents fresh.
Janelle - Period underwear and cups
An absolute life changer! Since I switched to reusable period cups and underwear, I haven't looked back. I use the Modibodi Classic Thong and I have also tried Intimina Lily Cup Compact Menstrual Cup – both of which I absolutely love. By using these alternatives, you can significantly reduce the volume of waste you contribute during that time of the month!
The Life Basics Reusable Cotton Pads are a sustainable & eco-friendly alternative to disposable makeup pads. Made with 100% Certified Organic Cotton, the soft and durable pads can be washed and re-used time and time again. They are a staple item for my daily makeup removal and face cleansing routine.
LastObject's LastSwab Beauty is an eco-friendly alternative to the many uses of single-use cotton buds without the large environmental footprint. One LastSwap could save up to 1,000 disposable cotton buds from going to landfill! I love using this for makeup touch-ups and cleaning up any makeup mishaps.
