42 Reusable Products to Help You Cut Back on Waste

People run through an alarming amount of paper and plastic, from paper towels to produce bags. But there are reusable products you can buy to actually help you cut down on your consumption over time and replace many of your single-use products (which will likely end up in a landfill). These eco-friendly alternatives may require a little bit more washing and foresight (how many times have you forgotten to bring your own tote bag to the grocery store?), but they will, at least, help you reduce the amount of plastic wrap, plastic bags, and paper products you burn through every week. Although paper and plastic use is just one slice of our overall environmental crisis—and personal paper and plastic use is an even smaller slice—you still might want to know how to curb your own waste to feel a little better about how you treat the planet. 

For Earth Week (and every week after), we’ve assembled some hopefully helpful reusable products to add to your laundry room, kitchen, and bathroom—from wool dryer balls to reusable makeup wipes, and other cleaning products. Adding these swaps into your rotation will hopefully be seamless and will likely save you money in the long run.
