24 Cute Reusable and Eco Friendly Products

By Brittni • posted on 04/18/2024

Super cute eco friendly products to replace single use plastics and more.

If you follow along on my Instagram stories, you may know that I’ve been making some changes to be a more eco friendly in my personal life over the last few years.

I started with hiding the paper towels I already had under my sink to see if I could go without using them. And guess what? It’s been years now and I don’t miss them at all. PLUS, my grocery bill is a little lower now too since I’ve stopped buying them.

Seeing how easy it was to switch to unpaper towels, I wondered what else I could replace with more eco friendly options.

In my searching, I stumbled onto SO many options from water bottles to reusable straws… even reusable ear swabs (sounds a little gross, but they’re silicone so you can easily wash and disinfect). And thought I create a list of the cutest / coolest items I found.

In order to make the list, it had to be functional AND fashionable / well designed. Because let’s face it, the cuter something is the more likely you’ll be to use it, right? At least that’s how it is for me.

And the more zero-waste or eco-friendly options we can use in place of single use items is a step in the right direction. So, here it is: 24 cute reusable and eco-friendly items to replace single-use products for good.

P.S. If you’re a crafter, be sure to also check out my list of easy eco friendly DIYs: 14 crafts to make using recycled materials.

You have to try these Cadbury choc chip cookies with your leftover Easter candy… Or make a special trip to the grocery store before Easter to pick some up just for this recipe because they’re that good.

Easter candy is probably my favorite holiday candy….the Cadbury mini eggs and Robins Eggs, specifically. And since we had a bag of mini eggs laying around already, I thought why not make some cookies. And they’re delicious.

These Cadbury choc chip cookies will have you running to the pantry to see if you have all the ingredients. Spoiler alert: you probably do! Just grab the candy from the grocery store to add in and you’re all set.
