Before you invest in new eco-friendly products, take a moment to consider what exactly your daily routine entails, so you avoid buying products you won’t end up using.

If you’re likely to get overwhelmed, start small and stay consistent. Small steps lead to big impacts over time!

Here are some quick tips to get you going:

  • Audit your habits - take a closer look at your daily habits and identify areas where you can make sustainable swaps effortlessly.
  • Rethink your waste - Be mindful of your waste and explore creative ways to repurpose items before throwing them out.
  • Educate yourself - Learn about sustainable facts and practices that align with your lifestyle to motivate yourself to stick with it.
  • Be energy efficient - conserve energy by turning off lights and devices when they’re not needed and minimize water usage where you can.
  • Shop mindfully - remember waste is waste, even if you’re throwing one item out to purchase an eco-friendly alternative. Use every last drop or scrap before you buy something new.
  • Celebrate progress - acknowledge and celebrate your eco-friendly achievements, no matter how small. Positive reinforcement will help habits stick!

10 Eco-friendly Products for Your Daily Routine

Let’s stroll through your day and find easy ways to make it more sustainable.

Morning Routine

1. Bamboo Toothbrush

Over 23 billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away globally each year. Try switching to an alternative made from bamboo, a material with rapid growth and natural regeneration, that can be composted at the end of its life. It’s a simple switch that saves a lot of waste, for no more effort.

2. Toothpaste Tablets 

Toothpaste tablets are the perfect partner for your bamboo toothbrush. This option by Huppy comes in a useful tin to begin with, and compostable packaging when it’s time to refill. You get the same sparkly smile as conventional toothpaste, without the plastic packaging.

3. Shampoo & Conditioner Bars

Did you know 550 million shampoo bottles end up in landfills in the US each year? Switch up your morning shower with shampoo and conditioner bars instead. Not only will this cut back waste, each bar lasts up to 75+ washes, saving you time and money too!

4. Reusable Coffee Cups

Before you rush out the door to sniff out the nearest coffee takeout, prep yourself a cup of joe to-go in a reusable cup. This is another double win, saving you money and waste.

Afternoon Rush

Now you’ve settled into the day, it’s time for a yummy lunch break and a couple of errands on the way home.

5. Beeswax Wraps

Pack up your sandwiches and snacks in beeswax wraps to avoid take-out waste. Leftovers can make tasty lunches too, and reduce your food waste!

6. Organic Cotton String Bags

Grabbing groceries on your way home? Bring a tote bag so you can keep the trip plastic-free. Store them by the door or in the trunk of your car so you always have one to hand.

7. Laundry Detergent Sheets

Time to get a load of laundry done before you hit the hay. Do your part to reduce the 700 million laundry jugs thrown away each year by opting for laundry detergent sheets instead.

This mess-free alternative is super simple to use - just place one sheet in the washing machine with your load, and it’ll dissolve into detergent and do all the work for you.

Evening Unwind

The day’s coming to an end and it’s time to prep for a restful night. Keep up the good habits and rethink your waste right up until bedtime.

8. Countertop Compost Bin

If you have food scraps left from dinner, toss them in a countertop compost bin rather than your trash can. This will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and recycle your waste into nutrient-rich soil. The Bamboozle Countertop Compost Bin is perfect for beginners, with its compact size and smell-absorbing filter.

9. Reusable Cotton Rounds

When you’re sleepy, face wipes might seem like the quickest and easiest way to wash off the day’s grime, but they’re not the best option for the planet. Reusable Cotton Rounds are the perfect alternative for your nightly skincare routine. Bonus: you can also use them for makeup application and household cleaning!

10. Zero Waste Candles

Love a bedtime read or a relaxing bath? However you unwind, if candles are part of the ritual, choose a vegan wax option that burns clean without pollutants. Our zero-waste candles are contained in repurposed wine bottles which can be used as a glass or vase after use.
