Earth Day may be only one day (April 22) but it reminds us that we can make simple adjustments to things we do every day that will have lasting effects. Switching to household consumer products that are biodegradable and environmentally friendly is one way to do this. Here are a few you can integrate into your lifestyle:
Bamboo toothbrushes: Regular toothbrushes are typically made of plastic, which is not biodegradable and can take hundreds of years to decompose. Bamboo toothbrushes, on the other hand, are made from a renewable resource and can be composted after use.
Beeswax wraps: Beeswax wraps are a sustainable alternative to plastic wrap. They are made from natural ingredients such as beeswax, jojoba oil, and cotton, and can be used to wrap food instead of single-use plastic. One brand that does this is Bee's Wrap and they have multiple products and styles.
Plant-Based Packaging: good natured Products produces 99% plant-based packaging solutions for consumer packaged goods that are certified compostable, with no harmful chemicals. These solutions look and function like traditional petroleum-based plastics but have a significantly lower environmental impact. This packaging solution is also better for the food inside - it is free from harmful chemicals and is made from renewable resources.
Biodegradable dish soap: Many dish soaps contain harsh chemicals that can harm the environment. Choose a biodegradable dish soap made from natural ingredients that won't harm aquatic life.
Biodegradable shoes: If you're looking for a sustainable and eco-friendly footwear option, consider BLUEVIEW - the world's first 100% biodegradable and durable sneaker. Not only is BLUEVIEW's sneaker better for the environment, it also delivers style and comfort. And, unlike other sneakers that can take years to decompose in landfills, BLUEVIEW's footwear can biodegrade in just a few months.
