The Ultimate 6 Sustainable Alternatives To Try Now

2. March 2021
Sustainable alternatives, including deodorant and toothbrush

From ReShape.’s own reusable makeup pads to the best natural deodorant around, it's never been easier to start your own sustainable journey.

Leading a sustainable lifestyle can be easier than you think! The recent increase of zero waste and eco-friendly businesses, using their resources to create products that are not harmful to the planet makes it super accessible. One of the best ways to lead a sustainable lifestyle is to purchase reusable products and avoid those impulse purchases. Here are my top six sustainable swaps you need to try:

Hydrophil Tooth Brush

Kate, the author behind ReShape., is personally a fan of this brand and especially this product. Hydrophil toothbrushes are made from 100% renewable raw materials; Moso bamboo is a fast growing material that is completely biodegradable. Hydrophil also ensures customers that the bamboo used to make their products is not infected with any pesticides or other chemicals. Adding to the sustainability focus, Hydrophil package their products using no plastic: they opt for recycled cardboard. Hydrophil toothbrushes are available through Amazon so extremely easy to get your hands on!

Ben and Anna Deodorant

Another personal favourite of Kate’s, the Ben and Anna deodorant. It is a naturally made deodorant that has a solid consistency due to the shea butter and soda used to produce it. The best element of the Ben and Anna Deodorant: the range of scents! The deodorant comes in a range of scents from Pink Grapefruit to Provence explained as ‘the scents of the south combined into one stick’. To add to this, the Ben and Anna brand has received many certifications showing their products are recyclable, support ocean cleaning and vegan. Ben and Anna are based in Germany however shipping is available worldwide, so where ever you are based the Ben and Anna brand can come to you. Also, available on Amazon.

ReShape. Reusable Makeup Pads

The ReShape. Reusable Makeup Pads are made out of organic cotton and produced with ecological and social criteria in mind. Perfect for sensitive skin, these makeup pads are exceptionally soft and fluffy. They are the ideal alternative to single use makeup wipes that are extremely harmful to the environment. ReShape. makeup pads can be washed and added to your long term bath room essentials. Additionally, the production process has zero waste – every scrap is repurposed for other projects. For every purchase made through ReShape., 10% of profits go to an animal rescue organisation, so you are even contributing to a great cause!

Happy Po – Portable Bidet

The Happy Po Portable Bidet is the ideal travel essential for ensuring you remain super clean and reduce the amount of toilet roll used. All you have to do is fill the bidet with water and squeeze it, so you can feel super clean, perfect for maintaining your health and helping the environment. The Happy Po does not require batteries, perfect for those travelling days.

Smooth Panda – Tissues and Toilet Paper

The Smooth Panda brand includes tissues and toilet papers. All products are made from extremely soft bamboo fibres that reveals a soft premium quality whilst reducing the impact on the environment. Smooth Panda products are completely plastic free and are produced with 3 layers, to add to the premium feel! Also, they are super easy to purchase as Smooth Panda is available on Amazon.

Last Swab

The Last Swab, based in the Copenhagen Denmark, is a sustainable alternative to cotton swabs, buds and Q Tips. The Last Swab reveals that “the average person goes through hundreds of cotton swabs each year”, therefore swapping out traditional cotton swabs for a reusable alternative is a great way to help the environment and your bank account. The Last Swab is available word wide!
