Our no waste essentials kit includes : 3 reusable sponge cloths, 4 reusable beeswax wraps, 3 reusable mesh bags, 5 reusable bulk bags, 1 multi-purpose cleaner concentrate and 1 glass cleaner concentrate.
Sponge Cloths (Set of 3): Give your kitchen or bath a streak-free shine and save yourself from sending 17 rolls of paper towels to the landfill for sustainable cleaning. These resistant Canadian-designed, Swedish-made sponge cloths can absorb up to ¾ of a cup for the smallest size and work great cleaning many surfaces including laminate, stainless steel, and glass stovetops. Antibacterial and quick-drying with fun designs, these cloths are fancy enough to leave sitting on your counters. Wipe up spills, put it wet under a cutting board to reduce slippage, or use the big one as a dish drying mat. The 100% biodegradable wood-cellulose cloth can be composted for zero waste cleaning.
Organic Cleaner Concentrates (Multi-purpose and Glass): Take one more step in eliminating single-use plastics from your life with this set of cleaning concentrates. These cleaning products come in a recyclable aluminum bottle. Add water to turn each 100 ml bottle into 1000 ml of kick-butt cleaning product. Made from essential oils, plant extracts, and minerals, say goodbye to the toxic chemicals and artificial fragrances found in other cleaning products.
Beeswax Wraps (Set of 4) : Have you ever wished for an easier way to wrap up your lunch or your leftovers without having to use a plastic baggie? This zero waste sets, made from organic cotton infused with beeswax are the perfect answer! The natural antimicrobial properties of the beeswax helps keep everything clean. And as far as wrapping stuff up, simply press the wraps over a bowl or jar or wrap them around a fruit or a veggie — the warmth from your hands will stimulate the beeswax to stick. Wash these reusable wraps in cold water with mild soap for a sustainable method of food preservation.
Reusable organic cotton mesh bags (Set of 3) : Made from sustainably produced, organic cotton, these see-through bags are a perfect alternative for holding your produce. The checker can easily see what’s inside and you won’t have potatoes rolling all over your cart. Great for separating things in your suitcase or diaper bag for travel or anywhere you need to gather small items together!
Reusable cotton bulk bags (Set of 5) : Food packaging is a huge contributor to our plastics problem. As much as we dislike it, one-time-use packaging goes straight to the landfills (or into the oceans!) These reusable bags made from unbleached cotton are the perfect answer. Plus, buying from the bulk bins is nice because it’s often cheaper and you can get exactly how much coffee or nuts that you want.
The company that makes our reusable organic cotton bags is all about sustainable living and helping people to reduce their ecological footprints. Far from a mere passion, it’s a lifestyle for them and they are dedicated to bridging the gap between affordable and high-quality products. The natural cotton for the bags comes from the US where agricultural standards are high to avoid polluting the water and other environmental impacts. It is also unbleached to avoid harsh chemicals. The mesh fabric is GOTS-certified organic and comes from India.
From start to finish, all products are made in Quebec to reduce their ecological footprint as much as possible. When shipping products, the packaging is 100% recycled and recyclable and they use minimal packaging with vegetable-based inks to help protect the planet.
