9. Reusable Portable Coffee Cups

If you like to take your coffee on the go first thing in the morning, then we suggest you start using reusable coffee cups made of organic materials to live sustainably. We end up using a ton of plastic cups just to get our fill of caffeine for the day which is harmful to the environment. Using a plant-based, reusable cup will help save the planet by reducing our plastic usage and since it is compostable in nature, landfills will be significantly reduced.

12. Eco-Friendly Reusable Storage bags

When we have leftover food, or we need our fruits and vegetables to stay fresh for longer, we end up using plastic storage bags that need to be thrown out once used. This is quite problematic for our environment, this is why you need to switch to BPA-free, reusable silicone food storage bags. These bags are safe to use as they are free of BPA and can be reused to pack food items, do meal prep and keep your fruits and vegetables fresh for more days.

13. Rechargeable Batteries

Another hard-to-recycle item that is damaging to our planet is batteries. They are found in every household, used in multiple devices from tv remotes, to cameras, and some toys as well. They contribute significantly to landfills as they are hard to recycle and are non-compostable. This is why you need to switch to rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable batteries can be recharged multiple times for use in your devices and will save you money in the long run as well as reduce your dependency on non-recyclable batteries.

Another great switch to reduce your plastic footprint is to invest in some high-quality recycled and organic toothbrushes. Keeping our teeth clean comes at the cost of the environment, with so many plastics thrown out of every household each year. Switching to a natural, bamboo toothbrush, or even a toothbrush made from recycled materials will reduce your negative impact on the planet. Thus, helping you live a sustainable lifestyle and preserving the environment.
