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.
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 have been trying my best lately to be part of the zero waste movement and Eco Collective makes it pretty darn easy - I can find pretty much anything I "need" like these bamboo utensils! I got these for work so I would eliminate the amount of plastic utensils I use from the office kitchen. Although super convenient to mindlessly grab a plastic fork from the draw it is even more convenient to have a set of my own that only I am using.
They are easy to clean and work great if not better. I mean the spoon is a spoon but in my opinion the fork works way better at forking food than any plastic fork I've used. I have yet to use the knife or chop sticks but all in all a great products and your own carry pouch... yes !
I do temp work and often don't know what the kitchen setup is like at the offices I go to. Some offices don't have dishwashers and only can provide disposable utensils (which are compostable, but that still requires energy from transport). So these utensils are a zero waste lifesaver. They tuck away easily in my bag and now I'm always prepared for whatever lunch I bring or the much needed sushi run on days that aren't going so well. I like that these can get through TSA as well so I don't have to worry about forgetting them in my bag and having them confiscated.
I'm really excited to use these reusable face wipes. I love the wooden container for them! I have a small mesh bag that I put the used ones in for laundry. I was disappointed that the clothes were white and not colorful like the picture but it just means I will have to order more!!
Facial rounds are really soft and strong, much better than disposables. Happy to be making another step towards zero waste!
This is one of the easiest zero-waste swaps you can make. I love them and use them everyday to remove makeup from under my eyes or apply toner. They’re super soft and can be used multiple times before washing. They also get softer after you wash them a few times! Liked them so much I bough then as Christmas gifts for friends.
You won’t be disappointed!!
So glad I got these! I have been trying to cut down on my single-use products and these are amazing!
Great drawstring bags, perfect for anything really. I’ve already used one to take my lunch to work. They are incredibly lightweight and transparent, but at the same time very durable. If you’re looking for a new set of versatile bags, I recommend these!
HUGE fan of these. The scale tare weight is provided and it keeps you from grabbing those plastic produce bags. I keep my reusable produce bags in side my large reusable bags so I always remember them.
I’ve long been looking for a more sturdy hair tie that doesn’t break every couple of months and that’s zero waste. These hair ties ROCK, they stay true to shape and don’t stretch out which I absolutely love. Plus I have dark brown hair and so I like that I could buy some that blended in with my hair.
Wore one of these for an intense hour long workout. I have a thick head of hair so I fully expected it to crease as well as struggle to hold my hair, not only did my pony stay tight the entire time, but when I took it out, it didn't take any hair with it and best of all: NO CREASE!! Exceeded my greatest expectations.
Love these hair ties and went back for more!
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 bought the eucalyptus & shea butter soap and it smells amazing! It's effective but not drying as a body soap. The corners/edges do make it a little difficult to apply to your body at first but I'm sure they will round off after a little more use. I can't wait to buy more!
The sweet orange + ginger is particularly great.
I love these soaps! They smell amazing! They suds up so well so a little goes a long way and they last longer than liquid soap so they are good for my wallet! I especially love the natural ingredients that are good for my skin and the environment.
Overall feels and smells nice, doesn’t diminish in size too quickly(so far) the only thing I wish was different is the shape since I like to rub the soap on my body and the square hard edges are a little rough.
Great soap and nice scent!
It's a good quality product and I like the mascara but I'm looking to be plastic free and there's a full plastic bottle inside of bamboo sleeve. So not only is there as much plastic as most other mascaras, they also used resources and energy to make the extra, frankly pointless, outer bamboo later. Feels like greenwashing to me. I do love their pressed foundation which is plastic free and refillable
I've been looking for more eco-conscious mascaras; although this does have a plastic tube inside, it has a bambo exterior, and seems for better than any non-plastic containers I've tried for mascara. It works very well, I've been using this mascara everyday and it has no irritation (as opposed to some mascara from other brands I've bought in the past). Would recommend!
This is a great mascara! Elate Cosmetics is the makeup I use and love it.
These are so good. I can't decide which flavor is the best.
I sadly did not like these at all. I was excited to purchase them but they didn’t stand out to me, especially at $6. They just lacked in flavor/taste. I can’t see them “covering up” any bad breath. I gave 3 stars because I like the package and idea.
These are really nice to have. I keep some in my purse for emergency breath refresh. The orange cardamom is amazing. I am trying NOT to eat them all at once they are so good. I highly recommend these in their handy little box.
Used it with my favorite leave-in conditioner on my 2c-3b hair and it left a nice cast with way less product than I normally use. I made a thicker gel by very gradually adding in water and then sprayed more water into my hair to help distribute. Definitely recommend trying to break up the solids before adding water since my mixture ended up a little chunky, but still worked well.
Overall really great product that I can see myself permanently replacing my old gels with once I've used them up!
I am SO happy I decided to purchase this product a few months ago! I am always looking for ways to simplify my curly hair care routine and as I am a frequent traveller who had plans to go abroad for 3 months, I needed something that worked and that I could bring a bulk amount of with me in my backpacker's pack. And this product is everything I could want and more! I have 2B/2C hair and this product paired with the Eco-Collective organic cocoa butter conditioner bar are a DREAM together! My hair has never looked better - no crunch, just non-frizzy curls that hold! I have a tiny jar with the solid gel powder and another with a small amount of the gel I've made while abroad as well as 2 tins with my shampoo and conditioner bars and BOOM - The ultimate zero-waste minimal travelers hair care routine. I will praise this product forever! Thank you Eco-Collective and Salon Solids!!
I was skeptical at first but this gel makes my 2b/2c hair look awesome without weighing it down. It even refreshed well on day 2/3 with a little water.
I have 3b curly hair and it works just like cantu’s Curling cream. I just use less water than suggested to make the gel thicker.
I was really excited for this product and I think it works well but there are a couple of things that could be added.
My first thought was the powder was really hard to measure because it had been mashed so much it came out like a sheet of paper and I cut it then tried to break it up into a powder. THe boiling process was easy, but I think that I didn't make it strong enough (too watery) because it didn't hold very long.
Love the idea but I need more instruction maybe? I felt a little dumb in my kitchen like hohoho let me make my hair mask.
Also does it go in the fridge? I have been keeping it there haha
I got this eye shadow because I love the idea of a local-ish company run by women. I like the zero-waste packaging. The union is beautiful and really brightens up my eyes! I loooove it. I'm not a big make up wearer but I find myself wanting to wear this eye shadow! I would absolutely buy more.
This brush is so useful for getting inside jars and containers with small openings. Because the bristles are so stiff, it cleans really well. My only complaint is that it bends really easily. (I did not find that this has impaired my ability to clean with it in any way though).
This has been a great brush to have in the sink. The bristles are nice and stiff, so it works really well -- even on things that aren't bottles!
The brush is long enough to reach the bottom of bottles and glasses, but is too flimsy to get enough leverage to scrub. The wire bends before the bristles do. It was not effective for its intended purpose.
I like to reuse old kombucha bottles for my DIY nut milks and other drinks at home, but I couldn't get them thoroughly cleaned with a regular dish brush. This thing gets through the narrow mouth (about an inch wide), and reaches all the way to the bottom! The curved end allows me to scrub the bottoms and sides of the inside of the bottle really well. The bristles are on the stiffer side, so it has good scrubbing power and I think it should last me a long time. I'm also just amazed that there's no plastic whatsoever and the whole thing can be composted & recycled (the wire). I had never found something like it before, so I'm stoked!
I bought this because the bottom of my water bottles were starting to look crusty, and this was unfortunately a purchase I ended up regretting. It smells awful and it doesn't work well as a bottle cleaner. I also tried to research on the company and it seems a bit sketchy... I could not find anything about how and by who these products were actually made by. I hope EcoCollective looks into this and finds a better bottle brush to supply.
I'm very sorry that you didn't love your bottle brush! We thoroughly research the brands we carry at Eco Collective and chose this brand due to their incredible focus on creating unique, plastic free products with sustainably sourced materials. We haven't found any smell associated with our inventory of this product, so I'm not sure what happened with yours - we'd be happy to connect with you via email to make things right with you!

Summer from Eco Collective
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.
