Eco-Friendly Products for Daily Use for Beginners

Are you looking for ways to make your daily routine more eco-friendly?

Maybe you want to do your part in reducing your carbon footprint or just want to be kinder to your body by reducing your exposure to harmful chemicals. I totally get it, and I've been there too!
Starting a greener lifestyle can seem overwhelming, and you might worry that you'll have to spend a lot of money to make the switch. But let me tell you, you can start small and still make a big impact!
By changing a few habits and swapping out some of the products you use every day for more eco-friendly options, you'll be well on your way to a greener lifestyle.

As someone who's passionate about sustainability, I've tried and tested a bunch of different products, and I've narrowed down my top picks for you. I've categorized them into four groups: Kitchen, Bathroom, Personal Care, and Cleaning Products.
Pro Tip: I know you might be itching to go out and buy all the eco-friendly products you can get your hands on, but before you do, hear me out. You don't have to go out and replace everything all at once. My pro tip for you is to start by swapping out one or two things at a time. That way, you can ease into it without overwhelming yourself or your wallet.
So, are you ready to make a simple switch to a greener lifestyle? Let's get started!

Kitchen Essentials


The kitchen is the heart of the home, but it can also be a source of waste and pollution. Here are our top picks for eco-friendly products that will make your kitchen greener:
  • Reusable food wraps: We swapped plastic cling wrap with reusable food wraps made from natural materials like beeswax, cotton, and jojoba oil. These wraps keep my food fresh and can be used over and over again.
  • Silicone straws: Ditch the plastic straws and opt for reusable silicone straws that are durable and easy to clean.
  • Glass food storage containers: We switched to glass food storage containers that are free from harmful chemicals and can be reused over and over again. They're great for storing leftovers and meal prep.
  • Compost bin: We started a compost bin for food scraps and other organic matter to reduce my kitchen waste. It's a great way to create nutrient-rich soil for my garden.
  • Dishwashing soap bar: We swapped plastic bottle of dish soap for a bar soap that's gentle on my skin and the environment. It's long-lasting and smells great too.

Bathroom Essentials


The bathroom is another area where we can make eco-friendly changes to our daily routine. Here are our top picks for eco-friendly bathroom essentials:

  • Bamboo toothbrush: Replace your plastic toothbrush with a bamboo toothbrush that's biodegradable and compostable. It's a simple swap that helps to reduce plastic waste.
  • Organic cotton towels: Upgrading to organic cotton towels that are soft, absorbent, and free from harmful chemicals has been a game-changer for me. They feel great on my skin and I feel good knowing they're better for the environment.
  • Refillable shampoo and conditioner bottles: Ditch the single-use plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles and opt for refillable bottles made from glass or aluminum. It's an easy way to reduce plastic waste and save money in the long run.
  • Bidet attachment: Save water and reduce your use of toilet paper by installing a bidet attachment in your bathroom.

Cleaning Products


Cleaning products are essential for maintaining a clean and healthy home, but many conventional products contain harmful chemicals that can be harmful to our health and the environment. Here are our top picks for eco-friendly cleaning products:

  • Natural all-purpose cleaner: Use an all-purpose cleaner made from natural ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils to clean your home.
  • Microfiber cloths: Switch to reusable microfiber cloths that can be washed and reused instead of disposable paper towels.
  • Biodegradable dishwashing liquid: Choose a dishwashing liquid that's biodegradable and free from harmful chemicals.
  • Castile soap: Use castile soap, which is made from natural ingredients like olive oil, instead of conventional soap that contains harsh chemicals.
  • Natural laundry detergent: Choose a natural laundry detergent that's free from synthetic fragrances, dyes, and other harmful chemicals.#

Personal Care


Our personal care products can have a big impact on our health and the environment. Here are our top picks for eco-friendly personal care products:
  • Natural deodorant: Swap out your conventional deodorant for a natural one that's free from harmful chemicals like aluminum.
  • Menstrual cup: Switch to a menstrual cup, which is a reusable and eco-friendly alternative to disposable tampons and pads.
  • Bamboo hairbrush: Replace your plastic hairbrush with a bamboo hairbrush that's biodegradable and compostable.
  • Reusable cotton rounds: Use reusable cotton rounds made from organic cotton to remove makeup and apply skincare products.
  • Zero-waste razor: Choose a zero-waste razor made from stainless steel or bamboo that can be reused.
I want to emphasize that living an eco-friendlier lifestyle is not about being perfect, but it's about making small changes consistently that can have a big impact.
It's okay to start small and gradually work your way up. You can choose to focus on one area, such as your kitchen or personal care products, and slowly incorporate eco-friendly that work for you and your family's lifestyle.
