11 Sep 7 More reusable products to fight the war on waste
Did you enjoy our previous blog on reusable products that are helping consumers fight the war on waste? With so many product designs available on the market, we were inspired to share more of our eco-friendly favourites with you, right here on our blog. Check them out below.
- Reusable wool dryer balls
When it comes to exceptional multi-use production design, wool dryer balls not only have the advantage of helping your clothes stay soft to the touch without any detergent – they also help your clothes to dry faster, which means you are able to use less energy to get the task done!
- Stainless steel water bottles
Whether used for school lunch bags, office lunches or even trips to the gym, stainless steel bottles provide smart solutions to curb waste so often associated with single-use plastic bottles. Designs range from one colour styles to vibrant patterns for school water bottles – making it easy to tap into this design trend and be a little kinder to nature.
- Eco-friendly, multi-use cleaning cloths that are bio-degradable
Designed using cotton and cellulose, multi-use cleaning cloths are a perfect product design to scale down on the use of paper towels. With multi-use cleaning cloths having the added benefit of being machine washable, they are a convenient solution for many homes.
- Air fresheners made with activated bamboo charcoal
Lasting on average two years, these air fresheners are a cut above standard air freshener aerosols that sometimes contain harmful chemicals that have a negative effect on nature. However, bamboo charcoal is all-natural and absorbs odours easily – plus they can be rid of moisture by simply being placed in the sun for a couple of hours.
- Biodegradable toothbrushes the decompose in under a year
As it is recommended to get a new toothbrush every three to four months, we often do not give much thought to the fact that our used plastic toothbrushes can take hundreds of years to decompose!
However, bamboo toothbrushes can decompose in as little as six months – plus they have the added benefit of being anti-microbial.
- Reusable lint rollers that stay sticky
Washable, reusable lint rollers are truly smart product designs. They stay sticky and simply need to be washed after each use. This allows you to have the benefit of a fabric product that can remove hair and fluff without the need to throw away metres of used sticky tape.
- Recyclable gift wrap paper embedded with flower seeds
Special occasions and birthdays are often marked with heaps of gift paper after presents have been opened. This is where the clever product design of recyclable gift wrap paper with flower seeds make a difference. Not only is it kinder to the environment – it also makes for a beautiful flower display when planted in soil and watered and cared for.
Just looking at this list, it is easy to see that switching to smart product designs brings with it the convenience of saving more and wasting less. In short: fighting the war on waste is possible thanks to exceptional designs!
