Plastic is piling up In reservoirs and oceans; It is even floating in the air. It’s sad and depressing, and unfortunately, the problem can’t be solved by consumers alone, so corporations need to do their part by cutting down on single-use plastics. But it can also give us a sense of agency by reducing the waste we produce, not to mention saving a little money by buying a product only once.
The best reusable products are the ones you want to use again and again. So whether you’re opting for water bottles from Starbucks (guilty) or a cute scarf from a local boutique, that’s what you should get. And if you have a pile of disposable products you want to replace, use them first. To help you get started, we’ve put together a collection of our favorite products. Don’t see what you need here?
