Happy Earth Day, Queens! We want to spread the love to Mother Earth by sharing a few of our favorite sustainable products and brands. Take a sec to find some cool replacements for your daily essentials.
Bamboo toothbrushes are biodegradable so they won't last forever in a landfill like plastic toothbrushes do. Leafico’s brushes are also soft and charcoal-infused for an extra bright smile!
Ditch the tube and use Lush Toothy Tabs! Just chomp until the tablet turns to paste, and brush away without any waste.
Queen V’s Royal Pain is a bathroom shelf staple. The unique blend of essential oils comes in a glass bottle and helps reduce pain from menstrual cramps, headaches, and soreness.
Bamboogle’s bamboo bath mat is the perfect post-shower companion. It’s biodegradable, has antibacterial properties, and will dry quickly due to its sleek, slated design.
Made with all-natural hemp, a renewable resource that doubles as an effective exfoliator, DeLaine’s body sponge lets you scrub dead skin (and worries about harming the planet) away.
Because what you burn is what you breathe, Aira Soy Candles are made from pure organic soy vegetable oil and have lead-free cotton wicks. Their soothing scents also make them great for bath time.
Here are a few of our personal favorites:
Lauren: I love Queen V's Royal Pain and Itch Don't Kill My Vibe. They come in glass bottles and work wonders. I also love Stasher bags. I haven't had to use a ziploc bag in so long
Blaize: I love Osea, which is a skincare brand. They were the first beauty brand to sign The Compact for Global Production of Safe Health and Beauty Products, an initiative from the Environmental Working Group. Some products you can pull by them are their vagus nerve oil, sea minerals mist, and ocean lotion. All their products come in glass bottles!
I also love by Humankind. Their mission is to reduce plastic in the industry. They sell refillables for commonly used items like deodorant, cotton swabs, etc. to lessen the carbon footprint.
And of course Reformation! They use deadstock fabrics thrown out by other fashion brands and they only produce a limited number so that there are never wasted overstock.
Analisa: I recently found out about Pela Cases, a brand that creates biodegradable and eco-friendly phone cases and I’m obsessed!
Stephanie: I’m so basic but I love lush! The products look and smell soooo nice and have natural, quality ingredients. I also admire the company's dedication to packaging-free products, and its use of recyclable, biodegradable materials when there absolutely needs to be packaging :)
