THIS not THAT - Sustainability Version

NOT THESE disposable tampons or pads. They're expensive over time and wasteful.

THESE period underwear are reusable, simple, and a great way to save money over time.

NOT THIS sunscreen, it's made with oxybenzone and octinoxate which harms our oceans.

THIS sunscreen is reef safe and made without those ocean harming ingredients.

NOT THESE sunglasses, they're made from plastic and don't have an end of life solution.

THESE sunglasses are made from agricultural waste and are "biodegradable.!"

NOT THESE shoes, they're made with petroleum and unethical practices.

THESE shoes from United By Blue are a much more sustainable option!

NOT THIS plastic phone case that is supposedly "drop proof." This is from personal experience.

THIS phone case that is made ethically and can be composted at the end of it's life!

NOT THIS toilet paper, it's made from virgin trees, contributing to the loss of trees and tremendous resource use.

THIS toilet paper is made from recycled paper AND does not come wrapped in plastic.

NOT THESE single use batteries. The materials that make up batteries are extremely toxic to our water and soil when disposed of improperly.

THESE batteries can be recharged and reused so they don't have to be tossed after one use.

NOT THESE plastic razors. Sure the handle is reusable, but the idea is still to toss the head every few weeks.

THESE reusable safety razors not only last much longer, but they are plastic free! You only need to replace a single blade that can be recycled.

NOT THESE diapers, they take hundreds of years to break down in the environment, and they're pretty costly as well!

THESE diapers are reusable hundreds of times! Better for the planet and your wallet!

NOT THESE toothbrushes. They last thousands of years in our environment and end up in our oceans harming sea life!

THESE toothbrushes are made from bamboo and can be composted and broken down in a natural environment.

NOT THESE single use dryer sheets. Nothing single use is sustainable, or nearly as affordable as their reusable counter parts.

THESE reusable dryer balls last a lifetime, literally. There is also a rubber vegan version here.
