5. Package Free X Abeego 3-piece Reusable Beeswax Wrap Variety Pack
These cotton-beeswax sheets can be used to wrap up cheese, produce and bread, or to cover bowls and containers. They’re plastic-free, can be washed and reused, and will last for about a year. (Plus, they’re cuter than Saran.)
7. W&p Porter Portable Ceramic Lunch Bowl
We love a desk salad as much as the next person, but those plastic containers they come in? No thanks. This lunch container comes in a rainbow of color options (in ceramic or plastic!), and each purchase supports food education in public schools through the brand’s partnership with Edible Schoolyard NYC.
8. Andrée Jardin French Block Dish Soap And Dish Brush
We know, we know, a liquid dish soap is über concentrated and convenient. But all that plastic it comes in? Get outta here. These chic bar soaps smell positively dreamy (in scents like sage & basil and mint lemon), lather up with just a splash of water and come with a natural-fiber brush for scrubbing away grime.
9. Five Two Compostable Sponge Cloths
Each cloth—similar to a Swedish dish cloth—is made of plant fibers and is printed with water-based ink, so it’ll decompose within six weeks in a home compost. Take that, cellulose sponge.
10. Food Huggers Reusable Silicone Food Savers
Save that half an onion (or lemon, banana, etcetera) while you save the planet.
Buy it ($9 for 4)
15. Ball Glass Mason Jar With Lid And Band
We give you permission to be that person and pack your lunch in a mason jar.
