I’ve written lots of detailed reviews of sustainable products, so consider this page your cheat sheet: Here, you’ll find my top recommendations and discount codes, all in one place. (I keep this list up-to-date as I find new products and companies worth knowing about!)

In addition to making great products, many of these companies are B-Corps and have other strong sustainability credentials. Nearly all of them are plastic-free and vegan. Many offer unique designs and refillable packaging that make it easier to waste less.

Reusable Replacements for Single-Use Items

Best Razors
Leaf Shave Co.

I've tested a lot of plastic-free razors, and the Leaf is the only one that won me over. The pivoting-head design means it feels a lot like using a cartridge razor – but without the plastic. (And it costs much less in the long run! The recyclable steel refill blades are just a few cents each.)

Travel Hack
LARQ | UV Sanitizing Travel Water Bottle

This plastic-reducing travel hack is much more than an "as seen on Shark Tank" gimmick: This is the bottle I use to purify my own tap water everywhere I go. (I used it in Mexico for two weeks and in El Salvador – no problems, and I didn't buy any plastic water bottles!)

This Danish company is the original inventor of the reusable Q-tip (LastSwab), and designs lots of other brilliant replacements for throw-away items. My favorites are their washable replacements for cotton pads and tissue boxes.

Best Basics
by Humankind

High-quality skincare and toiletry basics that are entirely plastic-free and refillable – from shampoos to dental care.

Better Toilet Paper

Did you know most toilet paper is made with trees cut down from natural forests? (And packaged in plastic.) What a waste! Here are two much better options, both of which I’ve tested:

Softest Sustainable TP
Reel Paper

Reel uses bamboo to make really great toilet paper with 100% plastic-free packaging, and no dyes, perfumes or other irritants.

Bamboo is a much more sustainable alternative to cutting down trees for TP and paper towels, which they also make, and much softer than recycled paper.

Check out my review (and comparison with Who Gives A Crap) for sustainability info and other details.

Who Gives A Crap

They call it, "Toilet paper that builds toilets," because of the investments this company makes in sanitation in developing countries, but it's also "toilet paper that saves forests."

Who Gives A Crap makes both bamboo and recycled paper TP options. Recycled is the most sustainable, but either is far better than the forest paper we buy at the store.

Everist makes travel-friendly, concentrated shampoo, conditioner & body wash. (If you're not a fan of shampoo bars, these are the answer.)

Face oil, lip butter, deodorant, candles? Got 'em all.

Shampoo bars? Got 10 kinds!

Everything is hand-made and vegan, and their packaging is minimal and thoughtfully sourced. (Either paper, glass, or recycled plastic that's also recyclable.)

Plastic-Free Makeup

These are my favorites – I’ve actually used them all! They all have either entirely plastic-free packaging, refillable packaging, or a combination.

Best Eye & Multi-use Colors
Axiology Beauty

Multi-use, 100% plastic-free make-up "balmies" (think of them as crayons) and more, made by a Latina-owned small company in Oregon.

Personally, I love the balmies for eyeshadow, highlighter and cheek color, but find them a little dry for lip color. But their newer Tinted Dew sticks are now the perfect solution for lips and cheeks – color and hydration! Along with their Shape Stick (for a light bit of contouring) they're the only makeup item I actually use every day.

Best Blush & Lip Products

A small, family business making sustainable, vegan beauty products in durable (and pretty!) cardboard packaging. Their moisturizing concealer comes in tons of shades and is my go-to. (You can also order sample sizes – plastic-free, of course, – to get the right shade before committing.) Their blush is great, too!

Sustainable Vitamins

Vegan Multivitamins in Cardboard Packaging

I’ve spent a long time looking for vitamins that don’t come in plastic, and when it comes to multivitamins, this small Colorado company is in a very small group of winners. NO MORE PLASTIC VITAMIN BOTTLES! Their multivitamins are formulated for a vegan diet, and they launched a kids' version in 2023.

My Favorites
Wild Nutrition

This small UK company is the only one I've found that can send me the specific vitamins I want, sustainably produced, in glass bottles with refills packaged in compostable packets. They're fantastic.

(They deliver to the US quickly, with no shipping charge for subscriptions. Refills come in a package the size of an envelope.)

Discount: I don't earn a commission from Wild Nutrition, but I can offer you my "Refer A Friend" link – you save £15, I get £15 off my next order. (If the link doesn't work, you can click "been referred by a friend?" at checkout, and enter my name – Ketti Wilhelm.)

This Australian company makes lots of high-quality formulas of vegan-friendly vitamins – from collagen, to Omega-3, to essential multis for kids and adults (including gummies).

Most come in glass bottles, and every time I check back on their website, they've added more in compostable packets. (Meaning less waste & lower shipping weight, AKA lower CO2 emissions.)

Unbound Merino makes my favorite packable travel clothes. They don't wrinkle at all (one of the virtues of good quality merino wool), and they stay un-smelly for days and even weeks between washes.

Plus, their designs are elegant and stylish (no logos), and easy to mix in with your wardrobe.

Organic Undies for All

Hands-down, the best sustainable underwear brand I've tried (and I've tried a lot). The quality of their garments is outstanding – you can tell by the thickness of the fabric, and the way their seams are neatly sewn and lie flat. Plus, they're soft, comfortable and use entirely organic cotton.

Compostable Phone Cases
Pela Case

Pela is famous for their compostable phone cases in tons of designs – they’ll break down into nothing but dirt within a year, including in the Lomi composter (also made by Pela). They recently added sunglasses, too, which aren’t compostable, but they are made with lower carbon emissions, less water, and less packaging than other brands. I've used all of these products for years and stand by the quality.

Pela is also a B-Corp, certified by Climate Neutral, and a member of 1% For The Planet.

Better Dog Food

Dogs don’t actually need to eat chicken and beef, but think about this: If US pets were their own country, they'd be the world's 5th largest meat consumer. That's a lot of avoidable CO2 emissions.

HoldOn – Compostable Bags

These are my eco-responsible replacement for plastic garbage bags and ZipLocks. While compostable bags won't break down in a landfill, plant-based alternatives reduce demand for petroleum-based plastic, so they're still a worthwhile swap!

Blueland makes dehydrated products in tablet form – just add water! They started with cleaning products – think, instead of buying another plastic bottle of Windex, you open a paper packet and drop a tablet into a spray bottle full of water. (Truly zero-waste perfection.)

And now now they also make excellent, sustainable body wash and face wash. Their innovations save me money, time, and mountains of plastic waste.

Pimsleur – Learn a New Language Now!

Pimsleur is a premium language learning program and app that teaches by repetition. (Instead of trying to spell and write, you'll learn to listen and speak – the skills you'll actually need for travel. It's much more useful than apps like DuoLingo, which basically just make you try to memorize written vocab.)

I've used Pimsleur for multiple languages so trust me – it's the best way to get started, short of just moving to a foreign country! Trying it free for 7 days is enough to pick up a few words, and recognize a bit of what people are saying when you land.
