Going green, ditching plastic, eating vegan is the need of the hour. But most of us struggle with it. What helps to fill these gaps and get on the bandwagon of sustainability is to surround yourself with products that make these habits a part of your life. Here are some afforadable guides that can help you in the transition.
Green Make-up Brushes
Bamboo make-up brushes are super healthy, sanitary, and they also help fight acne! They last just as much as traditional brushes and can be composted later.
Steel while on the go
Try replacing plastic products with stainless steel. Stainless steel is a great alternative to plastic. You can keep some stainless steel straws and a cup in your desk at the office, your car, and of course your home. You will find yourself using a lot less single-use plastic products!
Bamboo cutlery is reusable, light and easy to carry. They are also compostable. You can carry spoons, forks, chopsticks, and straws in your purse or put ’em in your pocket!
The easiest way to transition to a sustainable lifestyle is by carrying a cloth bag. Fold it up and put one in your handbag, car, or your office so you never have to take the plastic bag at a grocery store. Keep spare ones at home and encourage your family members to use them as well!
Go Natural on the Teeth
Plastic toothbrushes have a small shelf life and ultimately end up in landfills. Try switching to bamboo toothbrushes instead. These are healthy and biodegradable.
Old School Milk Bottle
Milk packets and cartons are lined with plastic. Their utility is only for a few hours and are then tossed out in the trash. Try the old school way and switch to a milk bottle instead.
Plastic wraps can be replaced by cloth wraps. These cloth wraps need no extra care and can be washed with the rest of your laundry.
Bee Wax Wraps
Just like cloth wraps, bee wax wraps are another organic and biodegradable alternative to plastic wraps. While cloth wraps are better suited for packing lunch and snacks for office, school, or picnics, but if you are looking for something lighter, bee wax wraps are a healthy swap. They are washable and reusable for up to a year after which they can be disposed off.
Little changes can lead to bigger accomplishments! These easy tips and affordable products are easy to incorporate in your daily routine and can have a huge impact on your health as well as that of our planet!
