Sustainable products you need to try if you want to save our planet.

During my childhood, I was never into anything related to the environment. I didn’t care about the environment just like me, I don’t think anyone else did. Taking care of the environment and creating or using sustainable products are just information that gets passed every day but everyone hears but never acts on it.

Let me give you an example from my life. I am a person who believes in cleanliness. So, whenever I have some chips or any waste for that matter and I cannot find a dustbin, I usually put it in my bag and later throw it in the dustbin. This is a good thing to do. Am I right? But I have seen many people telling me that there is no need to do such things or throw them on the road or you alone cannot change the world.

The thing is, you don’t need to change the world. You can do it just for your conscience. I know I do it for myself and our future generations and I love keeping my surroundings clean. Recently I have started using plastic-free products and sustainable products. They are amazing and you guys would love it too. If you too are into sustainable and plastic-free products, then you should check out this list for sure.

Menstrual Cups -

Menstrual cups are a revolution. They are more comfortable to use and they save the environment. These cups are healthier, sustainable, and environmentally friendly alternatives for pads and tampons. Did you know that over time, women generally use 12,000 Pads? And the worst part of it is that they don’t decompose easily. Try it once and you will never go back to pads. I am currently using menstrual cups and it has changed my life completely.

Reusable Straws

Everyone uses straws, but plastic straws are quite dangerous as they add to the pollution which is already prevalent in the world. These straws do irrevocable damage to the earth. What you can do is buy metal straws that you can take anywhere with you. Reduce plastic pollution in the way you can and they also look cool. One arrow, two birds.

Shampoo Bars

Did you know that something called shampoo bars existed? For the people who don’t know it’s just shampoo in the shape of a bar, just like soap. Shampoo and conditioner bottles are one of the major producers of plastic waste. In the US alone almost 550 million empty shampoo bottles are thrown away each year. Reminder: this is only the count of shampoo bottles alone. Think we add up the conditioners, face washes, etc. It’s just too much.

Bamboo Toothbrush -

A bamboo toothbrush is one thing you can use to save the environment. It reduces plastic waste. 50 million pounds of waste is generated every year by toothbrushes. So let us help the world by reducing plastic waste.
