You may have heard about the “no trash family” who cut back their garbage output to only one mason jar sized amount per year. If you’re like us, you were immediately inspired and ready to up your reuse/recycle game, but simultaneously overwhelmed by the thought of such a drastic shift. Thankfully, there are more and more products being made to help out aspiring reusers. Here are 10 products we love for a “less trash family”:

  1. Reusable sandwich and snack baggies for kids (and big kids) on-the-go.
  2. This reusable plastic wrap alternative made from all-natural beeswax.
  3. Not just ordinary reusable grocery bags, upcycled reusable grocery bags.
  4. ...and multi-sized mesh produce bags to rinse, store, and repeat.
  5. Reusable, organic hemp coffee filters for the daily grind.
  6. …and save those coffee grinds for exfoliating soap. DIY (for the adventurous) or buy.
  7. Metal straws (because we use a whopping 500 million straws daily in the US alone).
  8. Reusable baby food pouches (for those not quite ready for the reusable diapers).
  9. …and upcycled, no-laundry-needed, waterproof bibs for an extra ecofriendly feed.
  10. These dry erase wall decals for paper-free grocery lists (snap a photo, and you're off!).



…Which leads us to a GIVEAWAY!

One lucky winner will receive a set of Selenine’s Wall Pops – three dry erase message board decals made from 100% tree-free paper. We recently tested out a set of our own, and love the fun pop of color it added to our space. Plus, the quality is better than similar dry erase wall stickers we've used in the past. The adhesive stayed firm, even after repositioning them a few times. Selenine is championing "tree-free" paper which includes sources like: agricultural residues (e.g. sugarcane bagasse, husks and straw), fiber crops and wild plants (e.g. bamboo, hemp, and flax), and textiles and cordage wastes.
