This flexible cover is crafted from flax yet manages to protect your phone against falls from up to 6 feet. Compost the case when you’re done with it.

Skip the hotel’s single-use toiletries and fill this leakproof set instead. The containers are magnetic, so your bag stays tidy. Even better, they’re made from plastic recovered from beaches.
Noap Shower Rack
Noap makes shampoo, conditioner, and body soap in bar form to cut down on packaging. This suction shower rack keeps them from becoming gooey messes.
Earth Rated Poop Bags
Take your pup on a plastic-free potty break with these compostable vegetable-based bags. Even the box and cardboard core come from recycled materials.
This paper packing tape is just as strong as that infernal plastic stuff. But it’s almost completely biodegradable, and it can go into the recycling.
