Choosing eco-friendly products like No.2 is easier than ever. Here are 7 ways you can make a difference just by swapping out your everyday products with a more sustainable alternative.
Choose Green Cleaning Products
Certain ingredients that are common in drugstore cleaning products can pollute the air and our waterways, harming both humans and wildlife.
Companies like Squeak are disrupting the cleaning product industry with products that are actually clean.
Switch Up Your Soap
In light of all the hand-washing we’re doing lately, it seems totally natural to make the switch to eco-friendly soap.
Public Goods’ hand soap is Vegan and free of parabens, synthetic fragrance, sodium lauryl sulfates, phthalates, and formaldehyde.
Stay Hydrated With A Reusable Water Bottle
Opt For Bamboo
Bamboo is a renewable resource that positively impacts soil and releases 35% more oxygen than trees (you can read more about bamboo here). Bamboo’s strength and sustainability is why it’s the cornerstone of No.2’s ingredients.
In addition to buying bamboo toilet paper like No.2, you can also adopt a more tree-free life by swapping out your toothbrush with a bamboo one.
50 million pounds of toothbrushes are added to landfills annually. Opt for an 100% plant-based toothbrush from Bite instead.
Carry Reusable Bags
Try A Menstrual Cup
Did you know that the plastic from tampons and pads can take 500 years to decompose? That fact is especially shocking when you realize that the average woman uses 9,120 tampons over the course of her life.
If you’re looking for an eco-alternative to period care try a menstrual cup like Lunette. Menstrual cups only need to be replaced once a year, making them a sustainable and frugal alternative to tampons.
Resell Old And Unwanted Items
When it comes to going green it’s important to remember that your trash is your neighbor’s treasure. Reselling old items is a great way to give new life to things you no longer need while helping others avoid unnecessary purchases.
As it stands today, the fashion industry contributes 10% of humanity’s global carbon emissions and 85% of textiles end up in a landfill. Reduce your carbon footprint by using reselling platforms like Tradesy and OfferUp.
