Here Are 5 Plastic-Free Swaps That Will Make Your Life Easier:
1. Portable Travel Mug
In 2017, the U.S. threw away 4 billion coffee cups. That’s absolutely insane! Most paper cups we get from coffee shops are lined with plastic meaning they're not recyclable in most facilities.
A portable travel mug solves that issue! Bring your mug with you on-the-go or make yourself a delicious coffee at home and reuse the mug for years to come. Plus it's dishwasher safe!
2. Reusable Straws
Did you know that in the U.S. over 500 million single-use straws are used every single day? Plastic straws are essentially impossible to recycle because it is rare to come across a curb-side program that accepts them.
Glass Straws or Bamboo Straws are a wonderful alternative that are easy to clean and much more sustainable to use as well as dispose!
3. Bamboo Toothbrush
Did you know that 99% of the toothbrushes ever created are still in existence? They are nearly impossible to dispose of and are incredibly hard to breakdown.
A bamboo toothbrush can be easily composted so you don't have to worry about your toothbrush sticking around longer than you!
4. Plastic-Free Floss
Regular floss is typically made out of plastic and comes in a plastic holder. It also contains chemicals and toxins. Alternatively, you can use Bamboo Interdental Flossers that are easy to clean, will last you a long time, and will get the job done without all the additional chemicals.
5. Reusable Cotton Swabs
Most cotton swabs these days are made with... you guessed it—plastic!
Reusable cotton swabs are designed to replace q-tips and will last you 50x longer than a single q-tip. Save money and limit your waste with our Bamboo Swabs and our Silicone Swabs.
