If you plan to attend our "Tiny Tour & Open House" event and participate in our Zero-Waste "Hunt & Learn", or if you simply are interested in adopting this lifestyle, here are the products that we use and plan to highlight. Although it might seem contradictory to consume more when the aim is to use less, we have found these products helpful in eliminating waste from our home, as well as toxins from our environment.
Shampoo Bars eliminate the need for plastic bottles and packaging. This particular bar from small, sustainability-oriented company, Meow Meow Tweet is made from the finest vegan and organic ingredients.
Not only will this three pack get your started on a natural skincare regime, but you can also diffuse oils in the air as a toxic free, health-enhancing alternative to chemical ladden room deodorizers and candles.
By and large, the beauty industry is quite unregulated. The average woman puts 515 chemicals on her body each morning. Reduce your toxic load and cut waste by going all natural. Check out our recipe for Clear Skin Cleanser.
Cotton is the most heavily pesticide sprayed crop & women spend most of their lives inserting it into the most delicate part of our bodies. Natracare is an organic, non-toxic, plastic free, fully compostable option.
Organic Feminine Hygiene
Each eco-friendly, BPA, formaldehyde, and chlorine free roll is individually wrapped in paper & the fully recyclable/ compostable packaging helps protect our oceans!
Who thought flossing could be so zero waste? Made from bamboo fiber and activated charcoal and coated in organic tea tree and peppermint essential oils, this biodegradable plastic-free floss is sure to make you (and the planet) smile!
Meow Meow Tweet does make an all natural deodorant in a compostable paper push-tube (available here) but you can take zero-waste hygiene even further by using a completely package free and extremely long lasting alum stone!
These fragranced soap bars are part of a toxic free way to do your laundry. Pick the scent of your choice and get grating. If you follow our recipe, you'll have heaps of toxic-free laundry you can feel good about!
All Full Circle products are made without harmful coatings, dyes, plastics and chemicals to make sure your family gets healthier and clean. A more eco-friendly option, this broom is made with bamboo and a bit of recycled plastic.
Use re-useable glass jars to store bulk laundry detergent (laundry room), dishwasher detergent (under the kitchen sink), and homemade granola (in the pantry). Grab a chalk pencil to label the contents!
Made with bamboo and recycled plastic, this is a 2-in-1 Wet/Dry mop. Use the reusable microfiber pads or opt to attach cloth rags in the same way and break out the vinegar for a natural, non-toxic clean.
We love this zero waste shopping starter kit complete with 4 jars (with tare weights pre-printed on them), a blue grease pencil to write on the PLU number, and a convenient 100% organic cotton compostable carrying bag!
With your zero waste shopping complete, be sure to use durable, lightweight reusable bags at check out! I like these ones from BeeGreen. They fold up neatly into a small packet for easy stashing in your purse.
One of the best ways that we avoid sending trash to landfill is by composting. Composting is essentially taking organic waste and breaking it down into soil again using heat, time, and perhaps a handy outdoor tumbler.
