1. Klean Kanteen
My stainless steel water bottle. It is actually an insulated too. It can be used for coffee or anything hot so its a bonus that its multi use.
2. Thinx Underwear
Skip past if you don’t want to read about Period underwear.
I had been wanting to try Thinx for aaagggeess. I finally brought a set in July and got them at the beginning of August. I love them. They are so comfortable just feel like normal underwear – I even wear mine anytime of the month.
They come in a variety of styles and some are more absorbant than others. The ones I got can apparently hold two tampons worth of blood.
You can use them alone or with cups or tampons so you don’t have to worry about leaks. If you don’t like pads these are for you. Check out the Thinx site here for all your questions. They have also just released an organic cotton line so I am going to get a set of those. You can get $10 off any thinx here if you want to get some.
3. Refilling reusable glass bottles
We refill our
🍁Tamari – soy sauce
🍁 Apple cider vinegar
They are all organic and work out cheaper than generic brands, so its a win win no more packaging, its cheaper or the same and its organic.
4. Reusable fruit and vege bags
Im sure you have noticed how many plastic bags it takes to buy your weekly fruit and vegetables. If you are just buying a few of something forget the bag and take it to the checkout as is.
Reusable mesh bags are really easy to use, they look so much better and they are better for the planet. You can even make your own if you are crafty.
5. Stainless steel bento lunchboxes
The compartments make it easy to decide what to put in the lunches for my two. I havent snapped a pic of our lunchbots boxes lately but we have the style pictured & that lunch looks delicious.
Bento lunch boxes of any kind make it easier to pack lunches without wrapping and packaging.
6. Enjo and Norwex cleaning cloths
Cleaning without bottles of anything. Just water and the cloth. Saves the planet and pocket on chemical/natural cleaners. They are really quick and easy to use. I get my Norwex products here.
7. Stainless steel straws
Straws are so bad. I wish that places would ask you if you’d like a straw with your drink instead of just giving them. Even if you give it back they are just going to throw it. Although if enough people start giving them back they might start asking if you would like a straw or nix them all together. Paper straws are a better option as they degrade easily.
