    Hello there! These are great items that you recommended. Interestingly, I actually bought a silicon bread pan today! I have been wanting to make my own brioche bread since the new area I am currently living in doesn’t sell it (Not sure if you heard of 85 degree bakery). The Brita water filtration unit has been very helpful when I was living in the apartments during school. Thanks for creating this list of sustainable products!

      Hi Mike, I think you are going to love the silicone products for the kitchen! They are wonderful products to work with and release food from the pan better than just about anything else.

    These are some great tips! I have paper towels but hardly use them. I’ve been using cloth towels and napkins for YEARS and it makes such a difference. I actually use most of the things from this article except for the soda maker. It’s funny though, because I’ve been looking into getting one for carbonated water. It’s my guilty pleasure and even though I recycle my bottles and cans I know I can help more by using a soda maker instead. I’ll be sure to check out a few of the options from your site! 

    Thank you for sharing!

      Hi Haley, If you enjoy drinking sodas or carbonated drinks, the soda maker is a great purchase. It’s a fantastic way to reduce waste and to make sure that you almost always have your favorites stocked at your house.

    Hello! Great information and products especially for this year and shortages everywhere!!! I love the silicone baking mats, I didn’t know about those! I like the solar power charger too. Oh and the makeup remover washcloths! That will save me some money and trips to the store. Thank you for all of these great ideas and alternatives to the paper/disposable products. Even after this pandemic, it is a great way to move on and be more environment friendly and pocket book friendly too!

      Hi Evelyn, I’ve enjoyed some of these changes that were made during the pandemic, but will be enjoyed for years to come. The makeup remover cloths have been an amazing and effective way to remove difficult eye makeup (no more pricey eye makeup remover purchases!). Enjoy!!

    Wouldn’t the feminine products pose a sanitary problem if not stored properly after use?

    I believe the idea of using reusable products is an awesome idea. Being one that hates to waste anything I would invest in many of the products featured in the web page. I myself use reusable water bottles and several of the other products that are featured on the web page.

    I believe that the web page has a lot of great ideas and I believe that everyone should visit your web page in order to keep the earth green.

    Great page, Great idea

      Hi Vance, As with all reusable products, feminine products must be properly sanitized between uses. There are usually specific care instructions with each order.

    This is an excellent article, valuable information for women, and every family. And it can’t be more timely than this period as we entering the seasons of festivities. Making use of Kitchen Towels to supplement paper towels is very cost-effective. It saves money, time, and it is eco-friendly as you termed it. I use both paper towels and kitchen towels in my kitchen. I can tell you that paper towels go out so fast, as some family members are wasteful. But as for convenience, it is convenient, in the sense that you don’t need to wash it. I also took note of the idea of buying reusable straws, silicone mats, and so many other kitchens and house essentials. It was very thoughtful to share this article during this period. I believe that people will find it very useful.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Wilson, The fire-powered generators are a really neat little item to have when the power goes out for too long. It’s always best to purchase these emergency type items in advance, as they can be harder to find when you really need them.

    Hey, these reusable products are fantastic! Many of them I never knew are available in stores these days. I am happier now that I read your post and seen the display of the reusable products. Our younger generation was going down a path where originality was slipping away as they had come in a time when everything was disposable.

     Whatever is the reason for the reintroduction of reusable products it will benefit the big nations time! I am happy about the glass and bamboo straws. I never really enjoy using plastic ones. Do you think the world will continue to produce reusable products?


    • Alyce says:

      I have enjoyed having glass straws for drinks – I got a pack of five so there are always plenty for everyone. 

      I certainly hope that the world will continue to find new ways to innovate and reduce waste!!

  9. Christine says:

    This is the right article that many people should read. Using reusable products instead of disposable is really necessary at this time. I remember when we were younger, my mother used a kitchen towel instead of a paper towel. We used a cloth napkin and not a paper napkin.

    Thank you for sharing very useful information.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Christine, These sustainable products are easy replacements for some of the items that are currently hard to find (paper products, cleaning products, etc). If nothing else, it’s always good to have alternatives to items that are needed regularly around the house!!

    These are really excellent suggestions on how to best reduce store trips especially in a time of this ravaging pandemic that has kept and limited movement around the globe.I liked how you drove home so many instances where we create waste by using disposal materials. Not just paper. We use plastic straws and wash them for reuse. In older generations washable cloth napkins, kitchen towels were the norm. This pandemic will have positive outcomes if all of us learned how to use sustainable products.

    I must say that this was a great lesson in how to create less waste products. Providing easy links to purchase these products was a plus. Thanks for sharing this great article

    Wow! This is an awesome article!

    Seriously more than ever, we need  materials that are eco-friendly and  can replace items we buy everyday. Especially now that we have restrictions on movement and little or no income coming in! 

    The list of products you have provided here are just great! I am just hearing about the “period pantie”, “reusable cloth pads” and “period cups”! These are wonderful products. Thanks so much for this list.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi, those feminine products really are a great alternative to the expensive disposables that have been the only option for so long. It’s too bad they aren’t sold in shelves at most stores because they are often highly rated products!
