Let me just start with saying that I am not receiving any endorsements or kick backs from any of these companies. I like that I can just be independent and if I find something that is awesome, I can freely discuss it and not have to feel like I am bought and paid for. So just for the record, these are items that I have found at my local grocery store, Nugget Markets. They do have quite a few Eco Friendly products and it’s worth it for our planet to support these companies and also you can go on line to purchase as well.
1)The First product is called “IF YOU CAREPaper Snack & Sandwich Bags.” I did purchase these and they give you 48 bags that are compostable, unbleached and totally chlorine free. They have no Paraffin Wax, Not chemically treated and it keeps bread soft up to 6 hours. It’s also has all of these approvals from FSC, VINCOTTE that it’s OK to compost, USDA Certified BIOBASED PRODUCT. Usually my kid puts just snack type items in them. Such as crackers or chips. But I feel so good knowing that I don’t have to use those wretched plastic sandwich baggies which are killing marine line and are made from Petroleum products. So big shout out to Nugget for carrying this product.
2) World Centric has compostable straws. (I couldn’t use the image due to copyright) They are made from corn not petroleum. I think this is a great alternative for plastic straws. It’s understandable to use them when driving or if you have small kids or if you have a disability or a medical procedure. So if you really need them then they do have these at Nugget or you can order them from here.
Other options include stainless steel, glass and bamboo. Also they have them made out of cookies as well.
3)Chico Bags are super convenient and cool. They break down into these small little bags you can keep in your purse. And when you need it, you can open it up and have a bag in two shakes of a lambs tail. These are available at Nugget or you can get it here.
4) I tried to find some toilet paper that was not in plastic. They did have toilet paper that was from recycled paper but it was wrapped in plastic. So that defeats the whole purpose of having sustainable toilet paper. There is a Toilet Paper called Who Gives A Crap. They give money to build toilets. So you can feel good when you use toilet paper and you can buy it here.
5)These Repurpose utensils are BPA Free, Plant renewable and compostable. What more do you need? These are so awesome and anyone who buys these is a rock star and an official Earth Angel. So all you have to do is buy this kind of stuff and you are an Official Earth Angel. Thanks for caring and you can order these here.
