You know how when you learn that you’re participating in an injustice and suddenly restocking on toothpaste and razor blades feels wrong? These folks felt so good about these sustainable purchases, their reaction and review videos went viral. We’ve personally used most of these and hope you’ll enjoy that minty fresh smile without the guilt pangs.
1. We’re saying goodbye to toothpaste in plastic tubes and hiii to these zero-waste tooth tabs. All you have to do is wet your toothbrush and chew on the tablets to form a foamy eucalyptus-flavored paste. Your first order comes in an aluminum forever tin. After that, the packaging is all compostable. Even the shipping labels are compostable!
Promising review: “These little awesome tablets create the perfect amount of foam in your mouth while brushing, they don’t leave a strong aftertaste (you can even drink orange juice right after without that awful taste!), and they leave a pleasant feeling in your mouth. Whatever essential oil combo they use is nice. The spearmint flavor is spot on. Will continue to use it. Bought some for all the people I’m closest to. My dad and girlfriend love them too.”
Hüppy offers carbon-neutral monthly shipping for just $8 a month.
2. Go rechargeable with this USB electric lighter. Instead of buying disposable lighters or even buying butane to refill a reusable lighter, this one runs completely on electricity and is windproof!
Promising review: “Best thing since sliced bread. It’s a convenient lighter that doesn’t need butane. Just charge & go. Charging doesn’t take long & it holds a charge pretty long. For the price, you can’t go wrong & it won’t disappoint.”
The SUPRUS electric lighter goes for $16.99 on Amazon.
3. This forever razor sold out in under an hour after it dropped, and it’s no wonder. We had a hard time finding a safety razor with a pivoting head that was as beautiful as the Leaf.
Promising review: “I have been trying to remove as many single-use products from my life, and finding the right razor for me has been the biggest challenge. This is the only multi-blade razor with a pivoting head I have found that only requires the blades to be replaced (and recycled!), rather than the whole head. I’ve been using it daily for about a month now, and while it has taken some getting used to, I love it.”
The last razor you’ll ever buy sells for $84.
4. Replace disposable aerosol bottles with this reusable cooking spray bottle. Just fill it with your favorite cooking oil, use the pump to pressurize the bottle, and voila!
Promising Review: “I cannot say enough about how much I love these pump-spray bottles. I don’t give many 5-stars – but when I find a product I love I totally go for it and tell everyone I know about how awesome it is…I use these for EV olive oil. When I make grilled cheese I don’t bother with butter. I just spray a little olive oil on it. This means I am not only choosing an oil/fat with a better HDL/LDL ratio but that I also use *less* oil/fat to get the same results. Also works well for panini/Foreman-style counter grills. Sunny-side up eggs have never flipped so easily, flash-fried zucchini & squash medallions without the heavy coating of fat!”
The Misto #1 best selling cooking spray bottle goes for $9.99 on Amazon.
