If you can’t think of any good New Year’s resolutions, we here to suggest “making more earth-friendly choices” as one of them. Every small change you make is a helpful little piece in the “preserving our planet” puzzle. Of course, it can be difficult to know where to start. To make “sustainable choices” a resolution you can actually keep, we put together this list of eco-friendly products that will make your sustainability journey a no-brainer. Besides, who doesn’t love to shop their way to a greener planet?
TreeBird’s Bamboo Toothbrush & Eco Floss Value Pack
Ok, obviously we’re biased, but we really do love and believe in our products! In fact, we created our line of toothbrushes and floss, because we wanted affordable, pretty, and of course, sustainable dental care for ourselves!
As you might have already learned on our site, the average person goes through three toothbrushes a year. With seven billion people on earth, that’s nearly 28,000,000,000 toothbrushes being tossed into our landfills and oceans each year.
By making the simple switch to TreeBird (and convincing your friends and family to do the same!), you can make a small step towards reducing plastic waste around the world. Get started with our Bamboo Toothbrush & Eco Floss Value Pack.

Organic Initiative’s BioCompact Applicator Tampons
