Eco-Friendly – Vegetable and Fruit Shopping Storage

These bags are great! Sturdy and large enough to do grocery shopping. An easy and cheaper way to go plastic free. I’ve been using reusable bags for about 4 or 5 years now and really like this set. It offers a good variety of sizes. The bags are durable and easy to care for.

The large tote is really wonderful to use. It has side pockets to slip anything from bottles of wine to spaghetti sauce, etc. into. I can pack 2-3 times as much into it compared to other bags I have used and it is still easy to transport because of the quality materials and because of those dividers. I do wish that it didn’t have the large company name on it and that there was a way to fold it and velcro it closed compactly (my other bags are this type and I like being able to always carry them in my purse). I also really like the mesh bags for fruits and veggies. I have not used these previously and they work fantastically!

Beeswax Food Wrap – Eco Friendly, For Sustainable Living

This nontoxic beeswrap cover is made of organic cotton, beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin. It is double care about your health and the environment. The ultimate benefit is that packaging is manufactured and produced from biodegradable cellulose

Eco-Friendly Gloves Scrubber

 

I wanted to try these because my skin is super sensitive. (I also hate to ruin my fresh manicure:). It is protecting my hand, that is what I needed. For dishwashing…I guess it is doing the job. It is kind of fun actually. Just be careful with the glasses, it gives a sense of control but you would still want to be careful.

I washed couple of dishes that was lying on my sink, its perfect. The circular bumps and the curvy stripes on the fingers are sturdy silicone and make the dishes grip perfectly. The gloves are great and easy to clean and it fits perfect on my hand. I am pretty impressed with the idea. No more touching the chemicals in hand and no wrinkles by hot water.

Eco friendly lunch containers

The lunch set is made of BPA-free material that fits the US food administration standards. Being one of the best alternative to plastic the material is eco-friendly, non-toxic and safe. No plastic odor and unpleasant smell in your food. Enjoy healthy lifestyle! The bag itself is just large enough for the box included with a sandwich and a snack bag of food. The box is really convenient especially with the divider thing. The contents that come with the bag fit perfectly and suit any needs. The lunch set is made of durable materials so you can enjoy your food and drinks in our containers for ages! It’s easy to use, to clean and to have lunch with you.

Eco Friendly Food Storage Covers

Looking for the right lids to cover your bowls, containers or opened cans? Veotore Silicone Stretch Lids are what you need! As storage covers, they are compatible with many container sizes and shapes so there’s always one that fits (see sizes below). They create an airtight seal with the storage containers and keep leftover food fresh longer, prevent spills and help getting rid of the bad smell in your fridge.


Love these covers! The silicone has a distinct feel, but definitely they are sturdy. The various sizes are suited to numerous containers of foods, from small jars, drinks, leftovers, etc. Love that they are microwavable and dishwasher proof.They work great, they’re easy on, easy off & easy care. I wouldn’t be surprised if plastic wrap goes out of business! My only problem with these is I want more! LOL!

Reusable Shopping Bags

These reusable grocery bags are made from superior quality, all-natural materials guaranteed to last for many shopping sessions! They contain no plastic, polyester, nylon, and other fabrics that contain harmful microfibers. This is the only bag that actually lived up to its “eco-friendly” claim.

The bags are lightweight and durable at the same time. These bags are slightly over-sized, so they are perfect for grocery shopping. When rolled up they are compact enough to keep in a small bag or pocket. Add a carbiner and attach it to the outside of your backpack. Good size to hide in the door pocket of your car so you always have it handy. The material is heavy-duty. Don’t be afraid to over-stuff. The handle is long enough to slide over your shoulder. Are the bags too full? You can still carry them comfortably in your hand or on your arm without worrying about cutting off circulation.

Each Eco Friends bag purchased is a step closer to a waste-free world!

Bamboo Naturals Kitchen Sponges

They’re very cute. I bought these for my Mom and she loves them! She has commented on them several times and has shown other family members how wonderful they are. Very long lasting and absorbent, yet quick to dry! Best thing of all, is that there is NO smell.They don’t work for cleaning dishes!! They’re too soft. I guess they’re used for cleaning counters and stuff like that. Very soft and feels like a normal sponge. I use it for cleaning my counters, i use my bamboo bristle brush for dishes. Great way to reduce sponge waste. I love that they are reuseable and i can just throw in the wash.

Pronova Eco-Friendly Water Bottle

The bottle itself is great. Doesn’t leak and seems strong. This bottle is great! It is on the smaller size but my girlfriend loves it. It’s got a larger mouth but the design is great and very sturdy. Easy to clean and no complaints so far. Looking forward to the future of wheat plastic! If you drink a lot of water, are on the go and you want a solid glass water bottle without plastic aftertaste, then we can tell you that we really liked this one!

Another wow gadgets is this amazing water bottle. Have you already seen this smart bottle that helps you not to forget drink water during the day?

You can use this durable, eco friendly cleaning cloth again ad again. It can be washed in your clothes or dish washer up to 200 times. You may run out of uses by then! There’s almost no limit to where or when you can use this ingenious Scandinavian dishcloth. It’s great for cleaning or drying dishes, cleaning up spills or even cleaning your floors.

 

Eco friendly dog poop bag

Great waste bags! I am using these on-the-go when I’m out and about with my pup, as well as daily cleanup at home. One bag is large and strong enough for me to pick up all the dog doo AND clean out two cat litter boxes, with room to still twist the top and tie it into a knot. I appreciate that two dispensers were included because I’ve left one at my mom’s house so I can clean up after my girl there as well without having to carry any bags with me.

I’ve tried a variety of bags – from biodegradable to biofriendly to made of recycled products. I’ve also read extensively about the differences between those bags (when I decided to purchase in bulk). While I am very environmentally conscious, for the money these are the best. They are not quite as biodegradable as the “best” biodegradable products. However, even the best takes up to 5 years to biodegrade – and the bags are so thin that I feel like I have to scrub my hands for 5 minutes with antibacterial soap because I am not convinced that germs are contained within the bags.

Outlets that actually draw zero energy when turned off.

This energy-saving power switch draws zero energy when the switch is flipped off.

I bought three. One for me because my phone always needs charging at night. The other two were gifts. They were well received. One is being used for a nightlight, so my friend can get to sleep but not have it on all night.
