Face Halo The Modern Makeup Remover My favorite reusable make-up remover that acts as another alternative to makeup wipes. You just throw it in the wash and then reuse over and over.

Washable bamboo cotton rounds These cotton rounds fit nicely in the case above and replace cotton balls or rounds. They’re washable and then you can re-use over and over.

Reusable mesh product bags and cotton mesh produce bags Replace the plastic bag at the grocery store or the farmers market and use these instead!

Bamboo towels These replace 6 months of paper towels!

Reusable notebook A non-paper notebook! Fill it up and then wipe it off with a cloth when you’re done.

Compostable straws and glass straws Both great options for on the go or at home drinking! I like to keep the compostable ones in my car so that I can skip the straw if I’m getting a drink while out and about.

Smoothie mason jars Good for coffee or just daily drinkware, they make a few different lids that fit them and have a hole for a straw to use instead of something plastic.
