This year I want to continue to create habits and use products that are more eco-friendly. I have slowly been implementing these habits, like composting and using LED light bulbs, but I know there is so much more I can be doing. In an effort to be a more conscious consumer, I am testing out a few “green” products every month and will report to all of you my experience with each!
5 Eco-Friendly Products I am Testing
I don’t use an electric toothbrush so I think this switch will be pretty easy for me. The Isshah package comes with 4 toothbrushes that will last 1 year. This toothbrush is better for the environment than my other ones because it will break down in a landfill. It is made of all-natural products like bamboo and charcoal.
This is the habit that I am eager to kick! For years I have used the makeup remover wipes that I use one time and then toss in the garbage. Of course, this makes it easy for me to remember to remove my make-up at night, but I need to do better. I am excited to try out the Odoxia reusable makeup pads and cut out the single-use wipes.
Reuseable Sandwich Bags
Here is another bad habit that I want to eliminate for good. Whenever I pack my sons’ lunch, I try to use reusable containers but always run out of space. I am excited to try these reusable bags and cut out the saran wrap and single-use plastic bags for good!
Dropps – No Plastic Laundry Pods
I was immediately intrigued when I first saw the ad for dropps. The packaging is all compostable and recyclable and the detergent is wrapped in a water-soluble film that can be broken down at the water treatment facilities. Plastic entering our waterways is a HUGE issue right now and eliminating our consumption is one easy way to start helping the planet.
Biodegradable Food Wrap Bee’s Wrap
This is another product that has been tempting me through Instagram ads. I am interested to see how well this Bee’s Wrap remains pliable when it is being used frequently in the kitchen. My goal is to completely eliminate single-use products in the kitchen and reusable wrap for containers and food will help tremendously.
Are you interested in creating more environmentally friendly habits this year? What are some of your favorite “green” products that I should be using?
