5 Easy Eco-Friendly Product Swaps
Starting off on a more eco-friendly journey can be daunting. These 5 easy eco-friendly product swaps are a great place to start...
Reusable Facial Rounds
Think how many single use cotton pads/rounds you go through on a daily basis. When I thought about it, I was charging through a solid pack of single-use cotton pads every few weeks. You use them to take off nail polish, remove eye make up, apply toner, clean up excess make up... the list goes on and on. When I realized just how wasteful this was, I decided to create my own pack of reusable facial rounds! Each pad comes with 3 layers of organic cotton and can be used up to 100 times per pad. An amazing swap that is great for not only the environment, but also your wallet!
Bamboo Straws are an easy place to start when it comes to more sustainable and eco-friendly products. So many plastic straws end up in refills each year and they take FOREVER to break down. Like seriously....forever. I love these reusable and sustainable bamboo straws from AllBambu who make amazing cruelty free and vegan products all made from bamboo.
Washable Menstrual Products
One of the best selling eco-friendly products I stock is the reusable and washable menstrual pads and liners from Quebec based brand Smartliners. They create these amazing waste-free and reusable pads and liners from 100% organic cotton. They also have the added benefit of not containing any harmful chemicals, dyes or toxins.
Waste-Free Dish Soap Blocks
These amazing eco-friendly dish soap blocks from Vancouver based brand Make Nice Company replace up to 3 bottles of plastic liquid dish soap bottles and the large replaces up to 6! Not only are you reducing your plastic waste, you are also saving money. A double-win!
This was my first eco-friendly swap that I made. Plastic toothbrushes can literally take a LIFETIME to break down. These bamboo toothbrushes from Brush Naked are an amazing product to start out your eco-friendly journey with. They come in 4 different colours and even in cute kid sizes so your whole family can join in on the fun.
