We're destroying the earth, and it's something that can be prevented by making small changes and substitutions where we can. With that being said, here are a few things you should take a look at and substitute.

Reusable Bamboo Utensils

Plastic utensils are terrible for the environment, you and they don't work very well. On top of that, plastic silverware is made with BPA, which is a chemical that is terrible for your health. Opt for a sustainable to-go bamboo utensil set that you could utilize and feel good about. 

Reusable Makeup Remover Pads

Want to save some money? Opt for organic bamboo makeup pads that are biodegradable instead of using cotton pads all the time. 

Collapsible Straws

You can travel with one of these anywhere and never have to worry about using plastic straws or not having access to a straw when you need it. 

Biodegradable Dental Floss

Regular floss is usually plastic, which means it's toxic and coated with harmful chemicals that make the floss glide better. Try opting for a silk floss instead.

Hemp Flip Flops

Hemp flip flops are more durable because the fibers are strong and long-lasting. They're also non-slip. Also, the natural antibacterial properties of hemp mean they won't hold on to odors like many other synthetic materials.
