Stasher | Silicone Sandwich Bag

“Basically a staple of my personal sustainability practice, my Silicone Stasher Sandwich Bag is almost always with me. I spend a lot of time out on trails and am known to get hangry. My Stasher bag keeps my friends happy by making sure I am always fed (and nice to be around) while out on an adventure! It seals really well so I never have to worry about spillage in my pack, and is super easy to clean. I’ve had mine for years and it feels invincible!”

United By Blue | Paracord Hemp Blend Reusable Face Mask – 2pk

“I really like this Paracord Hemp Blend Reusable Face mask by United By Blue. I love the fact that it has adjustable ear straps, so they aren’t tight on my ears like a lot of other masks out there. A big bonus is the strap that goes around my neck so I don’t misplace them and they’re easily accessible when going from my car to stores. Most of all, I love the sleek design that goes well with almost anything I decide to wear!”

Meow Meow Tweet | Rosemary Avocado Shampoo Bar

“I never would have thought that I’d enjoy the smell of rosemary and avocado in my hair when I shower, but I have come to absolutely love the Rosemary Avocado Shampoo Bar by Meow Meow Tweet. This was my first experience with a shampoo bar and it took some getting used to. For example, I was initially worried that it wouldn’t last as long as traditional liquid shampoo, but this bar is super concentrated and has officially surpassed the longevity of my old liquid shampoo. I am also really excited about all of the plastic I am saving using this product, as the product itself and its packaging are 100% plastic free. This bar never fails to leave my hair feeling super clean and smelling awesome. Meow Meow Tweet rocks!”

Bell Mountain Naturals | Pink Theory Clay Face Mask

“A few months ago I picked up one of the Pink Theory Face Masks from Bell Mountain Naturals, and now it’s my absolute favorite little skin-treat! As a sensitive gal, I’m super particular about what I put on my skin, and not many products make it to my ‘repurchase list’. However, this mask is definitely now a mainstay in my routine. Lots of clay-based treatments are too harsh for my skin, but the Pink Theory is just perfect. It comes in a powder form, so I just mix what I need with a bit of filtered water and apply it all over my face and neck (I like to use a brush for extra spa-like vibes). The coconut milk powder hydrates my post-winter skin while the chamomile calms any redness and irritation. Rose and Kaolin clays gently detoxify and exfoliate and afterwards, my skin is calm, clear, and SO soft. I use it about once a week and when I finish the little pouch, I just toss it in my compost!”

Badger | Beard Grooming Kit

“One of the big barriers that prevented me from growing a beard was how dry and itchy my face would feel after a few weeks into the process. It wasn’t until I started incorporating daily beard oil and beard balm into my grooming routine that I was able to tolerate having longer facial hair! This kit is a great all-natural and organic solution for people with dry beards. The beard oil penetrates down to the skin to keep it moisturized, while the beard balm acts as a leave-in conditioner while helping to add a little shape for styling as well. This has really helped me level up my beard game, and I’d encourage anyone else with facial hair to try this product to see what a difference it can make for you!”

Onyx and Green | Sugarcane Paper 1 Subject Notebook

“This is a must-have for college students! The right notebook goes a long way in making the semester successful. I can’t even say how many different kinds I’ve gone through over the past few years, but I think I finally found the one. At first I was a little hesitant about how the sugarcane paper would hold up, but it definitely exceeded my expectations. It is strong, and the college-ruled line width is perfect to get the most out of every page. Plus there’s no plastic! So when you’ve filled it up, you can recycle the whole thing. If you need more space, try the 3 or 5 subject notebooks. Taking notes isn’t the most exciting thing in the world, but you can feel good about using this planet friendly notebook.”
