Whether you’re well-seasoned in living a zero-waste lifestyle or just getting started, ensuring you have enough essentials to cover your needs can be intimidating. Avoiding single-use plastic is harder than ever, but if you put together zero-waste kits for your home and car, you can take a major step toward reducing the amount of waste on Earth. If you are shopping during this Prime Day, consider these top deals on zero-waste products to help you ditch plastic for good.
Bentgo BPA-free salad container
As the world reopens, it’s time to start packing up lunches again. Skip take-out containers and opt for a reusable container, like this BPA-free option that includes handy segments to separate salad lettuce from toppings and dressing. No more sad, soggy desk lunches!
Reusable produce bags
By now, most people have a handy stash of tote bags to hold their groceries. But what about when you need to store a couple handfuls of Brussels sprouts or mushrooms? Those thin, flimsy bags from the grocery store aren’t strong enough to ever be reused. Instead, stock up on these reusable produce bags. The mesh material allows fruits and veggies to breathe instead of collecting moisture.
Portable utensil set
You never know when you’ll need to stop to grab a snack, lunch or drink while on the go. With a portable utensil set, you can skip single-use plastic forks, spoons, knives and straws once and for all. Stock up on Prime Day to keep a bundle in your car, your purse and at work.
Insulated water bottle with 3 lids
This sturdy, insulated bottle is perfect for keeping drinks hot or cold for hours. Best of all, it includes three leak-proof lids: a straw, a chug lid or a flip-open lid. The exterior is condensation- and heat-proof, so you can hold the bottle comfortably no matter what is inside.
Travel coffee cup with reusable straw
In the U.S., coffee culture is all about grabbing your coffee and running to the office instead of sitting and sipping out of a reusable mug. No more! Even if you are busy, this reusable coffee cup can come along for the ride. The fun color and pattern options might just inspire others to follow your zero-waste lead.
Food storage jars
Some of us dream of an Instagram-worthy pantry, where all of our bulk purchases of beans, rice, nuts and pasta are displayed beautifully in glass containers. Containers like these are usually pretty pricey, but this Prime Day, you can stock up on these modern glass containers with bamboo lids.
Reusable wax wraps
Another kitchen staple, these reusable wax wraps are a great replacement for plastic wrap. Safely wrap cheeses or cut fruits and vegetables in these fun, patterned wax wraps to help them last longer.
Paper towels seem to be one of the trickiest household items to leave behind when pursuing a zero-waste lifestyle. These bleach-free bamboo and cotton “unpaper towels” make light work of cleaning, and they can be washed again and again.
