There are so many ways to make your daily life a little more eco-friendly. You’ve probably heard all kinds of sustainability tips, from taking shorter showers to recycling. Today, there are also green options for everything from makeup to toothbrushes. While we all want to make good choices for the planet, it’s also important to make good choices for your budget. Amazon’s Prime Day offers an incredible number of deals, and we here at Inhabitat are highlighting a few environmentally conscious options for you.
