Five Amazon Products to Help You Achieve Your Zero-Waste Goals

Saving the Earth has become trendy and we are here for it!

We all know about recycling, but let’s not forget about the other two R’s in the trio reducing and reusing. Whether you’re in the kitchen, the bathroom, or on the go, these simple, economical, and environmentally-friendly products from Amazon can make working toward this trifecta of eco-awareness that much easier. Plus, they’re produced by companies worth supporting because of their zero-waste policies and initiatives that work to give back to the Earth.

Whether perusing through the grocery store or browsing the farmers’ market, this set is perfect for any food shopping spree. It comes with six bags made of Global Organic Textile Standards certified organic cotton and natural jute, making the bags both socially and environmentally responsible. Instead of paying extra for a plastic or paper bag that will end up thrown away after one use, keep this pack of totes in the back of your car or by your front door to reduce your waste and save your money.  

To go along with the recent movement to reduce the usage of plastic straws by both restaurants and households, this set is perfect. With these metal straws, the ease of straw-drinking can be achieved without the guilt of not knowing where it may end up. Plus, unlike glass straws, stainless steel is both durable and can easily be slipped into a purse or backpack for on-the-go use.  

Architec, the producer of these cutting boards made of recycled plastic and corn husks, focuses entirely on renewable and recycled materials. They also have bowls and serving spoons available that are made with the same materials. Even better, the factories are certified zero-waste facilities, so by purchasing EcoSmart products you are keeping 20 or more plastic cups out of a landfill.

Entirely produced in the US, this line of kitchen products is working hard to maintain an environmentally-conscious product that is durable, lightweight, and easy to use. Architec also offers a recycling program for products that are used to their end to be certain that they are being reused, not just trashed.

Every year in the US, 1B plastic toothbrushes are thrown away, and around 50 million pounds of trash is dumped into landfills which filter into our waterways and oceans. This plastic takes around 300 years to decompose, which makes toothbrushes seem like an environmental burden. By using biodegradable bamboo toothbrushes, however, you can contribute to the reduction of plastics in landfills and ocean and for a similar price to buying a plastic toothbrush.

Plus, the company, Tranquilo, is a US-based and family-owned company that gives back to the OceanCleanUp Project and works closely with smaller-based cooperatives to support local economies. The toothbrushes come with a lifetime guarantee and are naturally antibacterial. So, stock up on some bamboo toothbrushes and start saving the oceans!

Say goodbye to Ziploc and say hello to reducing your plastic waste! These resealable lunch bags are well worth the switch. In a variety of cute and bright colors, these bags add fun to any lunchbox while also being non-toxic, phthalate-free, lead-free, and BPA-free. Made from cotton and food-safe polyester, the bags keep food fresh and can be easily cleaned in the dishwasher. The pack contains four of these wonderful bags: two extra large, one large, and a snack bag. Whether it’s packing a lunch for work or a snack for to-go, these lunch bags are both environment-friendly and economical.

    Luckily, these straws come with 2 cleaning brushes in the pack for simple cleaning! While a tad more inconvenient, for me, the cleaning is fun and fast, especially when knowing that more plastic won’t end up possibly disrupting ecosystems.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my post and comment!

    Hi Lundburg,

    Nice article. But don’t you think ‘Stainless Steel Straws’ will be a very unhygienic choice as you have to struggle to clean it. :p
