EarthHero January Staff Picks: Eco-Friendly Products for a Fresh 2021

EarthHero January Staff Picks: Eco-Friendly Products for a Fresh 2021

EarthHero Approved | Self Care Planner

“After a year like 2020, I’ve made it my mission to prioritize self care this year – including my physical and mental health! When we got this planner in, I was so excited to use it to help go after my goals. It has sections to help me track and plan meals, as well as track my mood, water intake, sleep and exercise. I love the daily gratitude prompts and the self assessments – they help me take a step back and check in with myself. It also has daily, weekly, and monthly planning portions that I’m using to map out my work weeks, and personal plans. I usually use a classic planner, but the added self care elements of this one are perfect for my 2021 wellness goals!”
Juliet, Product and Marketing Content Coordinator

Bestowed Essentials | Stainless Steel Tongue Scraper

“New years are all about a fresh start. What better way to start fresh than with a clean tongue? I was skeptical about using a tongue scraper, but it’s really simple, quick, and elevates my oral care routine. It makes my mouth feel so much cleaner than brushing and flossing alone, and it helps to know that I’m getting extra bacteria off of my tongue – bad breath be gone! Plus, it pairs great with my David’s toothpaste and The Humble Co bamboo toothbrush 🙂 Don’t be afraid to try a tongue scraper or gift one to a loved one – they were a hit as stocking stuffers in my family!”
Grace, Customer Service and Administration Specialist

Scoria | Cork Trigger Point Massage Balls 3pk

“The new year is my favorite time to start up new routines! I’ve always aimed to begin my day in a calm and mindful manner, but more often than not I end up rushing around, taking care of the pup, pressing down the coffee, and going! This year, I’m choosing to give my body more of a chance to wake up and ease into the day. I have loved the addition of these cork massage balls to my morning stretches! I spend much of my day typing away on a laptop, so a gentle forearm massage has been extra-helpful – but I also enjoy rolling the balls under my feet and across my calves, too. Gets the blood flowing and offers me a moment to myself before I launch into a busy day. Plus, they’re made from sustainably harvested cork – so if my dog ever gets ahold of one, I know I can just toss it in the compost instead of the trash. 🙂 “
Ellie, Sustainable Sourcing Manager

LastObject | LastSwab Classic Reusable Swab

“It’s never too late to do a waste audit and swap – and that’s exactly what I did at the start of the new year! One of the most meaningful swaps I made was replacing traditional single-use cotton swabs with the reusable Classic LastSwab from LastObject. It comes in a handy little travel case, is super easy to clean, and, according to LastObject, can help replace over a thousand plastic swabs from heading to the landfill, or worse, the ocean.”
-Damir, Online Product Merchandising Associate

Ettitude | Bamboo Lyocell Sheet Set

“First it started with the bamboo lyocell pajama shirt. Then I got the shorts. And then it wasn’t long before I had to replace my old cotton sheets with these silky soft sheets from Ettitude! I feel super luxurious every night when I get into bed. The sheets breathe, so I don’t get too hot, too! This was an easy staff pick for me as I work from home this morning in bed!”
Hannah, Corporate Partnerships

Bambu | Classic Bamboo Cutting & Serving Boards

“As I start to transition my home over to more and more items that are plastic-free and ethically made, I purchased the Classic Bamboo Cutting & Serving Boards! I love the look and the fact that it is solely bamboo. Bamboo is a really great resource that grows quickly and is not water-intensive. I have presented some really awesome food on this board as well :). Cheers to good food!”
Charlie, Customer Service and Administration Specialist
