“There is no such thing as ‘away’. When we throw anything away it must go somewhere.”Annie Leonard, Proponent of Sustainability
If you like skincare as much as us at The D. Team, you probably go through cotton rounds like it’s your civic duty. Those add up in trash can and subtract cash from your wallet. Switch your normal disposable cotton rounds out for re-usable material rounds. They work just like the regular ones you’re used to but instead of throwing them in the trash, throw them in your washer! These can be rewashed hundreds of times and you don’t have to buy another bag of cotton rounds every shopping trip. Check out this awesome swap from LastObject below!
You probably don’t think about how many toothbrushes you’ve gone through in your lifetime. If you replace your toothbrush on the recommended schedule, that’s a lot of plastic brushes in the landfill. A bamboo toothbrush may need to be replaced from time to time but unlike traditional plastic brushes, they are biodegradable. Bamboo toothbrushes will decompose in a landfill or compost bin. You can even get them in big packs off Amazon for a discounted price. Check out our favorites below!
Microfiber hair towel
You can toss the hair dryer, because microfiber hair wraps will also dry your hair quicker! These hair towels come in the form of a wrap or turban. It wraps all of your hair and with the button attachment, you can neatly arrange it on top of your head. Get daily chores done while your hair dries, do your makeup, get ready for the day, you name it! The microfibers absorb the excess water from your hair better than a traditional towel. When the towel comes to the end of it’s life, you can cut it and use them as household cleaning towels! Check out our favorites below!
