With Earth Day coming up next week, BOXFOX is committed to doing our part to keep the planet green by staying environmentally conscious. For our FOX Favorites this week, we've rounded up a selection of some of the most eco-friendly products we carry.
We only have one planet, so do your part to help keep it clean and green!
BKR WATER BOTTLE //
According to National Geographic, 91% of plastic is not recycled. Plastic water bottles are a huge contributing factor, but not to worry, they can be easily avoided! Investing in a reusable glass or metal water bottle can drastically reduce your waste and save you money. Start going green today with one of our BKR and SOMA glass water bottles today. (They're also adorable so that's a plus).
Another way you can reduce plastic waste is to invest in reusable grocery bags. The Baggu reusable bag is small enough to fold up in your purse, which makes it super easy to bring with you to grocery store, farmer’s market, or anywhere you go!
HONDURAS COMSA COFFEE //
If you’re an avid coffee drinker you’ve probably used a coffee pod at least once or treated yourself to a store-bought latte in a plastic to-go cup. You might have guessed, making coffee at home (sans plastic) is much more sustainable option. Six Depot Coffee Roasters use sustainable organic farming practices and sell all their fair trade coffee online. Try the Honduras Comsa Coffee and you won’t be disappointed.
HERBIVORE FACIAL SOAP BAR //
Rather than using ordinary soap which may contain harsh chemicals and often comes in plastic, opt for the herbivore facial soap. It’s eco-friendly and wrapped in paper, so it’s totally plastic free!
VITRUVI ESSENTIAL OILS //
Cleaning products also contain harsh chemicals and almost always come in plastic. Making your own at home cleaning supplies is a great alternative to purchasing store-bought products. A few simple ingredients mixed with your favorite scent of Vitruvi Essential Oils will give you the perfect eco-friendly cleaning solution.
Another great alternative to plastic is metal. Our roundup of metal products not only help you help the environment, but are super cute too! The Kikkerland Brass Clip Set is great for sealing up your coffee and snacks, while the Viski Gold Corkscrew makes the perfect bar cart addition. We love our BOXFOX Gold Acorn Tea Infuser, which is way cuter than your average tea bag. Also, the HAY Gold Pen is sure to spice up your workspace and will definitely outlast any plastic pen.
BOXFOX HONEYCOMB DISH TOWEL //
It may seem obvious, but it’s always better to purchase something reusable over something disposable. Choosing dish towels over paper towels is a great start! Our BOXFOX Honeycomb Dish Towel will look so good in place of your paper towels.
THE LITTLE MARKET OLIVE WOOD SPOON //
There are always more ways to substitute plastic, especially in the kitchen. The Little Market Olive Wood Spoon is the perfect addition to your utensils drawer.
