Organic coconut oil lip treatment

“This gloss doubles as a lip moisturizer, so it has easily replaced my lip balms as well. It’s formulated without all the bad stuff: sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicone, and synthetic fragrances. Plus, it’s cruelty-free and sustainably sourced.” –Jela Tejada, editorial assistant

Water filter pitcher

“I gave up single-use plastic water bottles for a Brita pitcher a few years ago. I just updated it for one of the beautiful new red ones, that goes perfectly with my kitchen. This is literally the easiest and most cost-efficient kitchen sustainability hack available. You get pure, temp-controlled water every time.” –Beth Thompson, editor-in-chief

Reusable sandwich bag

“I love Stasher Reusable Silicone Bags Yes, they are a bit of an investment at first ($15/per) but they last so long, save the earth from plastic garbage and are easy to clean. Plus, you can actually cook in them. So multipurpose!” –Beth Thompson, editor-in-chief

Beeswax wrap

“I’m the queen of single-use plastic baggies, but these beeswax food wraps are a great eco-friendly alternative for keeping my produce (yes, even avocados!) and cheese remarkably fresh. Bonus: To clean, all you have to do is gently wipe the wrap with a cool, damp cloth and leave to dry.” –Alyssa Ball, assistant digital editor

All-natural facial oil

“My skin can be a bit reactive, so I’ve always stayed away from facial oils. But I was happy to find that this one is non-comedogenic and only has one ingredient (Abyssinian oil sustainably sourced in Canada!) It’s 100 percent natural and 100 percent a staple in my nighttime skincare routine.” –Jela Tejada, editorial assistant. (Find out if you’re even benefiting from your extensive skin care regimen.)

Linen bedding

“After being introduced to Flax Sleep’s linen robe last year, I loved the quality of its material so much that I decided to update my bedding. Made from 100 percent French flax, this linen uses 20 times less water and energy to produce than cotton. Plus, it washes insanely well and seems to only get softer over time.” –Alyssa Ball, assistant digital editor

Long-lasting highlighter

“This multi-tasking highlighter is one of my favourite cosmetic products (eco-friendly or not). Not only does it use organic oils, but its vegan, cruelty-free and comes in recyclable packaging—not that it matters, because my small jar has lasted me 1.5 years and counting.” –Courtney Reilly-Larke, managing editor

Plant-based milk

“As someone who has tried my share of plant-based milks—the good, the bad and the watery—I can assure you this one is the winner. It’s delicious and creamy, so it makes the green-house-gas-reducing switch to plant-milk super easy.” –Courtney Reilly-Larke, managing editor. (Plus, here are some simple tips for eating more plant-based foods.)

“I came across these reusable towels that I just love. Made by a Canadian company, Kliin, these cleaning cloths are compostable, made from 100 percent natural fibres and can be washed up to 300 times. Plus, they come in super-cute patterns. So much better for the environment than paper towels.” –Beth Thompson, editor-in-chief
