Headed back to college? We've got supplies for going zero waste, from the dining hall to your dorm. Check out our fountain pens and recycled notebooks for classes too!
Sending the littles off to school? We've got supplies for them too! Check out our reusable sandwich bags and snack tins to keep their lunches plastic-free.
I purchased a three pack, and couldn’t be happier! Such good quality for the price.
It's a pleasure to get in the easy, eco-friendly habit of using and reusing these instead of tearing off and later trashing sheet after sheet of plastic wrap or foil. We sent both our adult children a set of the purple ones, too.
Everything I need in a toothbrush. I wish the bristles could be compostable, but it's still great to have a fully compostable bamboo handle. It feels nice in my hand, and I think that these toothbrushes actually last longer than "regular" plastic ones (at least, I haven't noticed the bristles starting to wear down yet like a plastic toothbrush's bristles would by this time. When do you REALLY need to replace a bamboo toothbrush, anyway?)
I've tired other bamboo toothbrushes but these are my favorite as of right now. The bristles stay in place, they are sturdy but not too hard that they hurt. I've noticed my teeth feeling extra clean. The handle is smooth and I'm not afraid of it splintering. Plus they are super affordable.
I wasn't sure how I would like a bamboo toothbrush, but I've been using it for a couple weeks and I love it! Won't be going back to plastics.
This is the cheapest and best quality bamboo brush I’ve found, bristles are decent strength too. I gave 4 stars just because I wish they would find a way to make the bristles compostable.
Good brush strength
I purchased both Bite (from Bite's own website) and Unpaste toothpaste tablets, and I find that I like them in different ways.
- Bite has a more minty initial taste, but Unpaste has more of a refreshing aftertaste and leaves the mouth with more of a "clean" feel (comparable to the minty fresh feel I get after using traditional toothpaste from a tube).
- Bite tablets have a texture more similar to mints. After I bite into a tablet, it dissolves quickly into a watery concentration. Unpaste on the other hand chews into a foam. Chewing it reminds me of chewy on cotton gauzes.
- I like the taste of a Bite tablet in my mouth more than an Unpaste tablet. Even though Unpaste has stevia in it, Bite tablets taste sweeter to me.
Overall, I would recommend Unpaste tablets. I think I personally would continue to purchase more of Bite's tablets just because I really like having the minty initial taste in my mouth and do not really like the feeling of chewing on cotton balls (which I get with Unpaste). However, I really do like the Unpaste leaves a refreshing feel in my mouth afterwards, which I do not get so much with Bite.
Great product I initially found in a neighborhood recycle store.
Feel really good about using these. Very effective and works great on plaque.
I was thrilled to find them at Eco Collective as the store is now closed.
Great experience shopping online with Echo Collective! Recommend.
So I was skeptical of toothpaste replacement tabs because I have tried another one before (toothy tabs from Lush) and these were WAY better. They don't have a salty baking soda taste, they aren't as chalky when you bite them, and my mouth feels so clean after using them! I almost don't want to finish up my conventional toothpaste that I still have because of how much I love these, but I will squeeze every last bit out of that tube and then never buy another tube again.
Taste takes a few to get used to I think but once you do regular toothpaste is grose! So great for long term travel too, never going back!
Great idea...wish it worked for me...leaves me with the worst breath. Going back to Toms and using TerraCycle.
Like your best friend, these bags are fun and reliable. They come in so many colors, I love seeing them in my Tupperware drawer. Trust me, these bags will become your best friend next time you’re on the go or just have something you need to keep safe for later.
I love these and want every size. The seal is 100% safe. You could fill one with olive oil, stick it in your bag, and wouldn’t have to worry about it leaking a bit. I also love how easy they are to wash in the dishwasher and then air dry.
I travel for business at least once a month and I love these to stash snacks, dirty reusable utensils, and necessities on the plane and during my trip. For flights, I pack one with my earbuds, phone charger, antibac wipes, lip balm, and eyedrops and stick it in the seatpocket so everything stays clean and I'm not digging thru my bag during the flight. They get extra points for being dishwasher safe.
I recently purchased the shampoo bar and have used it 4 times. Unfortunately it makes my hair feel really greasy and dull so I don’t like it:( maybe my husband will like it, thanks anyway 😊
Recently re-purchased the Lovely Rita shampoo bar for curly hair. I am Black and wear my hair naturally curly, and have found that this shampoo bar works great for me. If you're like me and don't wash your hair every time you shower -- or, if you have roommates who also use the shower but don't share shampoo -- I would suggest that you don't store the bar in the shower, even on a wire rack. Even just a little water getting on it during each shower will dissolve it faster. With my second bar, I've been storing it like this (https://bit.ly/2Rt9oOg), and I can already tell that it will last much longer this time.
This bar cleans well, doesn't dry my hair and smells fabulous. But smell doesn't linger and isn't overwhelming. Love it. My hair is dead straight and I live in the desert SW. This shampoo bar works great for me. Plus, it's not encased in plastic and the little box it's shipped in is recyclable.
I tried shampoo and conditioner bars from Lush several years ago and hated them. They made my hair feel like straw and I was mortified when I realized how much artificial dye was in it! I avoided shampoo bars after that, but finally decided to give them another shot when I got tired of buying shampoo in plastic bottles that are full of sulfates, artificial coloring and fragrances, and who knows what else.
These shampoo bars are amazing!! I’ve been using the Lovely Rita Super Condition bar and my hair is so soft, moisturized, and shiny. My scalp used to be super dry, but since using this product, my scalp couldn’t be happier! Good for the earth, good for my body. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to conventional shampoos again.
I love the minimal scent how easy the pods are to use. I appreciate how earth friendly the product and packaging is. I will definitely continue to purchase your products. Thank you!
The pods a great. There is no drop in the cleanliness and smell from the last detergent I used. And, I know I'm limiting my waste to society.
These worked well for me. I appreciate the scent (which didn't trigger my asthma) and how powerfully effective these little pods are. The packaging is minimal, too, just a small cardboard box. I will be buying more of these.
So much easier than the DIY detergent I was making before to live low waste and they work just as well as my old chemical-laden commercial pods!
I’ve been using my bag for over a year now and am so impressed by it. I love how compact it can get and how much stuff it can hold. I always get compliments on my bag when I use it for groceries, running errands, or at the gym.
I love these bags! They fold up really small, so you can keep one in your purse or in your glove box, so that you’re never without a bag. Perfect for the beach , great for groceries, ideal for travel. I bought some for myself and, I was so impressed with the quality, I bought more for my friends.
I would love it if one would be created with a small zipped pocket... y’know, somewhere to keep your lip balm
I use this bag for everything from a shower bag to hold all my stuff (i'm in college) to hauling my post office packages to shopping (grocery, retail, etc.). It can also be folded down to such a small size so it's easily portable. I was waiting to get this type of bag for such a long time and this price of $8.99 is the best one you'll find for an organic ecobag.
I purchased the to go filter and always keep it in my water bottle. My water always taste fresh now.
I was looking for a way to get rid of my disposable filters and this was just the answer! This allows me to have great tasting tap water without contributing to landfills.
It really works, now I have great tasting water.
I've used this charcoal stick for several years. The tap water comes out tasting great and I don't have to deal with plastic water filters and their unknown polymers.
I drink tap water and can tell the difference after using this filter. I am hooked.
When I first went "zero waste," I made my own laundry detergent. It's easy to do, yet super time consuming to grate soap. I think bought liquid soup in bulk. Again easy to do... yet this option was a bit messy when filling up at the store. Laundry pods are the best solution for me. They are mess-free and still support a low/zero waste lifestyle. Plus, I really think they clean better than what I was using previously.
I love using the laundry pods. They are so easy to use, I love having no plastic waste not having to lug a huge bottle of detergent home. Thanks for selling this product.
My clothes always feel fresh and clean with this detergent. I hate how over powering the smell of conventional clothing detergents are this one is just right. Highly suggest.
This sunscreen is amazing. It is moisturizing, so on my oily skin I use this without moisturizer underneath. I love the way this blurs my pores and really gives enough coverage for me. It goes on so nice, and blends well. Feels a little greasy initially but does soak into skin so that soon after applying I don't notice it being greasy at all. Everyone who wants zero waste moisturizing sunscreen should try this! I got the tan and works well for my olive skin in winter, though I may try dark for summer.
I was worried about trying this product due to a lot of other sunscreens in the past leaving a white film on my face and being difficult to apply. This sunscreen though, is everything I have been looking for in a product, applies easily and smoothly, and doesn’t leave any white or greasy film on my face! It actually also kind of acts like a BB cream and provides a little/light foundation like coverage on the face. I would highly recommend this product.
Well I really wish I would have known about this sunscreen months ago! It is incredible, I love that it is a solid stick that goes on smoothly. It smells like vacation/summer because of the coconut and jojoba oil and doesn't feel too greasy on my skin. I like that it's tinted a bit too, so I don't look like a ghost like with my other zinc based sunscreens. The packaging is my favorite, it is sturdy enough while still being compostable, I will never buy a different sunscreen unless they stop making this one.
This is the perfect size for a quick on-the-go snack! It fits great in pockets and bags. We use them for dry snacks like nuts and our dogs treats. The material is thick enough to feel sturdy but nicely light weight. Bonus that they’re available in a variety of fun colors!
I assumed they would big enough to put in a sandwich but these are too small to use for anything.
