There are extremely simple ways to “go green” and so many different wonderful sustainable products out there, especially if you’re starting your green adventure fresh. I find dipping your toes in the water is the easiest way to get started. Embrace these simple products today!
Buzz words change, but owning sustainable products you can reuse is the best way to start helping the planet and go green. Now its easier than ever with so many options to upgrade your life. Where do you begin? It can feel daunting when you first dive down the rabble hole of becoming Eco friendly. That’s why I found the best sustainable products to round out your home and help you go green.
The easiest way to start your green adventure is by starting in a place where we are most wasteful. That place definitely is the kitchen. Food waste is such a huge problem, not to mention the products we buy to keep our kitchen clean, organized, and working how we want it. Upgrading your kitchen and learning to safely store leftovers is a great start!

Reusable Mesh Bags
Reusable bags are not just for the grocery store. Sure, the mesh bags are marketed to bring with you to the store so you can say no to plastic and paper bags. But this bag set also is great to use at home. You can use these however you see fit, so store what you need, where you need it.

I’ve always wanted to buy a Keurig style coffee machine, but I’m not actually sure I’d use it because I always have multiple cups of coffee in the morning. I also dislike the inherent waste they create. Replace those disposable k-cups with these refillable ones!

Cotton Rope Laundry Basket
I love this laundry basket. The best part about this is that you can use it for so much more than laundry. Baskets like this are perfect to store clothes, toys, blankets, basically a myriad of household items.

WaterHawk Smart Shower Head
Upgrading your shower head is a simple way to make your bathroom more green by using less water. Older shower heads are notorious for water waste. This smart shower head tells you how much water you use, how hot the water is, and the pressure can be optimized!

Garden of Life Raw Protein
Many powders are full of bad ingredients and made from destructive practices. This is my favorite protein powder because it’s organic, plant based, and the best tasting one I’ve tried. Food is an important part of going green because what you eat affects the environment in multiple ways. I aim to buy products that are made naturally and so I started with this protein powder, long before I ever went vegetarian.
