Have you thought about making sustainable swaps to your lifestyle? It might seem counterintuitive to buy things when you’re trying to cut back on consumption and waste. But if you’re like most, you might have a lot of everyday habits that are creating more waste than you can keep track of! In the long run, investing in long-lasting and reusable versions of those wasteful items is actually a better investment, especially for the planet!
A reusable coffee cup that’s built-to-last
This might be the easiest swap out there… and it’s also zero waste! How good! With so many different reusable cups out there, there’s almost no excuse for you to have one yourself! Most reusable cups are plastic free (or made from recycled plastic), Bisphenol (BPA, BPS) free, have properties to keep your coffee hotter for longer, able to be reused over and over, and are sure to keep your plastic waste down. Our personal favourites are the Joco Cup (made of borosilicate glass and silicone), the Huskee Cup (made from coffee husks), and the Ever Eco Tumbler (made from stainless steel)!

Bound to last you forever if proper care is taken, this Bento Box is made from premium food-grade stainless steel and comes in 1, 2 or 3 compartments, 2 tiers and extra-large to accommodate your needs. From fresh fruit to sushi rolls, the food combinations are endless!
Would you be able to count how many plastic straws you’ve used in your lifetime? If not, yikes! But… If you switched to a Stainless Steel Straw, we bet you would be able to count the number of straws you plan on using for the rest of your life on one hand! Who wouldn’t want that?! Not only would you be reducing your carbon footprint, you’ll also be reducing your plastic waste.
Ditch tampons. Menstrual cups are the new black
On average, a woman uses 240 tampons a year – that’s 9600 over her lifetime! Now think about how many plastic wrappers would need to be twisted open to reach that number! Eek! Lunette Menstrual Cups are a sustainable alternative to plastic tampons and pads. All you’ll need is the one cup and… that’s it! It can last you up to 10 years and unlike tampons, menstrual cups can give you a fuss-free and odourless period for up to 12 hours a day.
Stainless steel pegs that’ll definitely last you a lifetime
Correct us if we’re wrong, but these are the kind of pegs you can pass onto your children! Stainless Steel Pegs are the economical choice for any household. Made from marine-grade stainless steel, this makes them weatherproof, rust resistant, suitable under many conditions and they can peg down heavier items such as towels and blankets!
