Everyday, the global environmental issues we face become more and more apparent, and what we can do to help build a better place could be the most challenging – because it doesn’t happen overnight.
Climate change has destroyed our planet largely. By changing our old habits, like using eco-friendly products, we can help build a better world. Not only that, we can protect ourselves from harmful chemicals.
What are the benefits of using sustainable products?
* Healthier living
* Lower Costs
* Reduces carbon emissions
We made a list of 10 eco-friendly items to help you get started on plastic-free living.
1. METAL STRAW
Plastic straws can’t be recycled and can harm our environment – what’s worse is getting eaten by marine animals when thrown out in the ocean. Use metal straws that are durable instead.
2. CLEAN ZIP POUCH
Is plastic-free! Anything you want to store - be it food or your personal belongings, you’d rather use a Clean Zip Pouch. It’s safer and healthier unlike plastic zip bags.
Not only will you help the environment but also the people who made them by hands for their source of income.
4. COCONUT COOKING OIL
Yep. Recycling cooking oil helps cut back on waste and supports clean renewable fuel. By disposing of used cooking oil can lead to illegal destructive consequences. Try using Coconut Cooking oil instead. It comes from the third extraction of virgin coconut oil and doesn’t undergo chemical processes.
Instead of using disposable masks that have chemicals which are harmful to both consumers and the environment, buy washable and reusable Face Masks.
6. MENSTRUAL CUPS
For all you ladies out there. Switch from using menstruation pads to cups that are made with either silicone or latex. Unlike tampons and pads, menstrual cups are reusable which decreases the amount of waste and discarded packaging.
7. LUGGAGE COVERS
Durable luggage covers have become quite the hit! Again, we don’t want to risk your health as plastic is easily absorbed by human bodies. Replace yours now with our luggage covers.
8. BAMBOO TUMBLER
Made of responsibly sourced bamboo and stainless steel. Can keep your beverages got or cold for hours. Bamboo tumblers are long-lasting and reusable.
9. SUGARCANE CONTAINER
Rather than buying single-use plastic containers, tupperwares etc., switch to Sugarcane containers. It is compostable after 90 days, microwave and refrigerator-safe!
10. MESS 2.0
In case you’re wondering, Mess 2.0 is a set of stainless steel essentials (utensils) that’s light and compact. These can be used when you eat out or order take outs.
