CLOTH PADS The average woman uses some 15,000 disposable products during her lifetime. Reusable products generate a fraction of the waste, and at a fraction of the cost too - and that’s one of the beautiful things about reducing your waste, it often saves you money too.

SOAP NUTS These husks are completely biodegradable when exhausted, and at Earthwise Girls, we even have a nearly zero waste stain remover stick (it comes wrapped in paper!). The cloth bag the nuts come in can be recycled or reused.

TOOTHBRUSH Opting for items (like toothbrushes or combs) made from bamboo or wood means they are completely biodegradable and sustainable. Plus there’s something very tactile about them that makes them a pleasure to use.

CLEANSING PADS Switch to reusable cleansing pads for your daily cleansing routine or makeup removal. Typically supplied as a set of several cloth pads in a handy mini mesh bag for washing - so they won’t end up stuck down your shirt sleeves. A super easy switch, and a great gift too!
