Spend Less; Utilize More

When it comes down to it, we most likely have plenty of items around our homes that we can re-purpose to decorate and amp up an atmosphere. We’re all about making use of the things we already have, rather than buying, when we can make it work.

Plant-based Paper Towels

We all love a quality, durable paper towel that gets the job done in one wipe. What we don’t love so much: Throwing those paper towels away so frivolously. Which is where Repurpose comes in. Entirely non-toxic and completely sustainable green products that really do work. With product lines from tableware to kitchen and bath, give these bamboo, 100% FSC-Certified goods a go.

Compostable Trash Bags

We throw them away left and right, why not choose ones that are eco-friendly when we dispose of them? And hey, why not pick up some sustainable bags of all types (sandwich, produce, shopping, even pet waste), trendy square plates, and food containers while you’re at it?

Recycled Material Drinkware

Using recycled, shatter-proof polymer, Tossware went to sustainable lengths to create eco-friendly drinkware. From flutes to stemless glassware to old fashioneds to tumblers for everyday use, they’ve got the beverage holders covered. If anything, they’re saving 5.6 grams of recyclable plastic every second. Wow. Plus, all products are BPA-free, so you can feel great about that.
