Best Sustainable Sneakers
These sneakers amassed a 5,000-person waitlist for two reasons: They’re super comfortable, and made entirely from sustainable materials. The cotton-y upper is made from a proprietary all-vegan blend of bamboo and recycled plastic from water bottles, and the soles are made from ultra-light Sugar Cane EVA. That’s worth bragging about.
Best Sustainable Sweater
Alex Crane's mission is to deliver comfortable, wearable pieces of clothing that don't just feel good on, but are good for the environment, too. Case in point: This olive hued sweater is green in more ways than one. It's crafted from 100 percent Merino wool, a lightweight and breathable natural fiber (and completely renewable textile) that wicks away moisture yet still warm and cozy.
Best Sustainable Deodorant
We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but drugstore deodorants are formulated with a myriad of toxic ingredients that are then absorbed into the skin after application. How lovely, right? But here's the good news: EvolveTogether deodorant not only smells fresh and clean, but it's also made from all-natural ingredients that neutralize odors, absorb moisture and soothe the skin, too. (Buh-bye pesky razor burn!)
Best Sustainable Adaptogens
Stress isn't exactly on short supply nowadays. And although a quick gym sesh or selfcare night does wonders at giving us a moment to breathe, adaptogens are the wellness world's buzziest stress reliever, and we can certainly see why. The one we seem to be reaching for the most these days is this powder from Hive. It's a tasty blend of organic ingredients, all sourced from sustainable and organic farms. But we especially appreciate this brand for the community work they do, donating adaptogens to BIPOC communities and Native Nations that are affected by systemic stress.
Best Sustainable Home Products
Grove Collaboration's mission is simple: Give people a curated selection of clean, eco-friendly, sustainably made products, and boy do they deliver. Their storefront has it all—from non-toxic cleaning supplies and beauty products, to all-natural treats and toys for your furry friends.
Best Sustainable Face Mask
This best-selling exfoliating mask comes in a recycled glass jar—which the brand encourages you to recycle again once it’s empty. Known to be “an instant glow treatment,” the formula is made with natural, nontoxic ingredients will leave your skin looking bright and hydrated after every use.
Brooklinen Super-plush Towel Move-in Bundle
Best Sustainable Towels
All of Brooklinen’s products are OEKO-TEX certified, meaning they’re produced under socially responsible and sustainable conditions. This particular bundle includes four bath towels, two hand towels, four washcloths and a bathmat for just $231 (and you can pick the colors for each).
Best Sustainable Comforter
The name alone caught our attention, because who wouldn’t want to sleep wrapped in a cloud? Once we learned that each of Buffy’s super soft eucalyptus fiber comforters are filled with 100 percent recycled fiber, we were totally sold.
Best Sustainable Kid's Shoe
These sneakers are comfortable, easy to slip on and off and are 100 percent biodegradable. What more could a kid ask for? Well, it helps that they’re pretty adorable and come in 14 different shades.
Best Sustainable Makeup
Aside from the beautiful natural highlight it creates, the best thing about this luminizer is the fact that it comes in 100 percent sustainable packaging. BTW, all of RMS Beauty’s products come in recyclable, reusable or biodegradable pots or tubes.
Best Sustainable Activewear
Each pair of Girlfriend Collective leggings is made from a compressive, squat-proof and insanely comfortable material that includes 25 recycled water bottles. Pretty cool. The new Saguaro shade and matching sports bra has become our favorite at-home yoga outfit.
Best Sustainable Pajamas
Kids can always use another pair of cute pajamas. This one is made from soft, breathable 100 percent fair trade organic cotton—and the brand estimates that 24.9 gallons of water are saved through the production of each, since organic cotton uses 91 percent less water in production.
Best Sustainable Serum
Looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and increase hydration without harming the environment? Try out this super effective serum that contains smoothing Babchi extract and gentle exfoliators. It also happens to be housed in a 100 percent recyclable glass jar and comes with a list of suggestions on how to upcycle it afterwards.
Best Sustainable Detergent
OK, so dishwasher detergent pods are nothing new. But we’re big fans of these because they’re natural, biodegradable and they arrive on your doorstep in a cardboard box, so there’s no plastic waste. Plus, they clean grime and grease off your dishes like no other.
