We only recommend eco-swaps that we’ve tried, use, and love!

Featured Products

Laundry Strips

We searched far and wide for a laundry detergent that was not only eco-friendly but also waste-free. These laundry strips are fully biodegradable and even outperformed standard detergents. 

Toxin-free cleaner

Force of Nature is our favorite waste-free and toxin-free cleaner and is an EPA registered disinfectant that kills 99.9% of germs. It's the best of both cleaning and reducing waste worlds!

Allbirds Sneakers

My Tree Runners use 95% less water than typical sneaker production, have shoelaces made from recycled plastic, and the soles are made from sugar cane. They are also my most comfy pair of shoes!

Recycled Yoga Pants

When I found these colorful and fun yoga pants that are also made from recycled plastic, I got so excited and haven’t looked back!

Zum Body Rub

A great eco-swap for the traditional Vaseline. Ingredients are certified organic, and we’re partial to the rosemary-mint rub!

Hair Care

If you’ve never tried shampoo and conditioner bars, this sampler box is a great way to give them a shot. Super moisturizing products and waste-free!

Reusable Bottle

I’ve tried many a reusable water bottle, and this one is by far my favorite. It has a lifetime warranty, no plastic components, and easy disassembly for deep cleaning.


I love drinking sparkling water, especially as a refreshing drink when I’m gardening. This is the perfect way to make it at home instead of buying cans.

Bamboo Bandages

We love these plastic-free bandages. They’re soft, durable, biodegradable, and made from 100% organic bamboo.

Recycled Toilet Paper

Don’t risk wiping with a 200 year-old tree and switch to recycled paper toilet tissue!

Food Storage and Cleaning

Stasher Bags

Perfect eco-swap for single-use, plastic storage bags. These are made out of silicone, can be safely washed in the dishwasher, and reused countless times!

All-Purpose Cleaner

Like other Zum products, we love that this cleaner is free of synthetic chemicals and is made with essential oils.

Castile Soap

From mopping your floors to washing your dog, Dr Bronner's Castile Soap does it all! It's also 100% organic, biodegradable, and toxin-free.

Silicone Food Covers

These silicone covers are another fun way of storing food and a great eco-swap for plastic cling film.

Zum Dryer Balls

I throw these wool balls into the dryer and it really cuts down on my drying time!  They're a great swap for dryer sheets.

Retractable Clothesline

I love being able to skip machine drying and let the sun do the work! When I'm done, I unhook the line, and you'd never know it was there.


Composting Tumbler

I have nothing but great things to say about this composting tumbler! Easy to assemble, easy to spin, and keeps producing great compost for my garden.

Organic Fertilizer

This is the only fertilizer brand we use in our garden. 100% organic, slow-releasing, and yields amazing results!

Rain Barrel

Rain barrels are a great way to capture the water off your roof and use it to irrigate your garden. Minimize runoff and save money. Win-win!

Worm Composting Farm

If you live in an apartment, this is the perfect way to compost. Buy in conjunction with Uncle Jim’s worms (shown on right).

Composting Worms

The best Red Wriggler worms you can get for composting! They ship alive and straight to your door.

Electric Lawn Equipment

All the lawn equipment we have are electric and we love them. They’re so lightweight, quiet, and obviously emissions-free. Link is to lawn mower but we recommend all Greenworks products.
