Being environmentally friendly every day, in every aspect of your life, is hard. It’s draining to try to save your wallet but also save Mother Earth. There don’t seem to be many options for both, but Black Friday is just around the corner. Here is our list of products to celebrate you! You’ll be taking care of yourself, your wallet and the environment all in one purchase.
Reusable toiletry containers

The set comes with a variety of essentials, including four bottles, four jars, two spray bottles and one clean brush. It also contains a clear baggie, so you can easily see when you are running out of products, but also works great for traveling.
The containers are made of food-grade silicone, which is BPA-free and non-toxic. It’s durable, but are easy to squeeze, so you can start getting that skin glowing all year round. The bottles also have a nice wide opening, so you can use all your product to the last drop because waste is a no-no around here!
