Earth Day Inspired Eco-Friendly Swaps

April 22, 2021 is Earth Day and we’re celebrating this exciting day all month long.  At Splashe, we’re dedicated to bringing you brands and products that meet your needs and fit with your lifestyle. Eco-friendly is one of the purposes you can shop by; this means the brand and or product is environmentally friendly. We firmly believe that small changes can make a big impact, so in honor of Earth Day we want to share some eco-friendly swaps to incorporate into your routine. These simple suggestions are great ways to make the jump towards sustainability and conserving our environment.  

 

Bandages

Did you know 1 in 4 people have a reaction to wound adhesives? And unfortunately, traditional first aid contributes straight to landfills. Swap out old-fashioned bandages for PATCH, the world’s first zero waste wound care. PATCH bandages are 100% compostable and made from one of the most sustainable, soft and breathable materials on the planet – bamboo. PATCH is also hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types even sensitive. They are committed to using 100% natural materials that work well and are good for the environment. To celebrate Earth Month, PATCH is offering 20% off all products on Splashe when entering code EARTH20 at checkout!

 

Household Items

Everyday household products are another category with plenty of eco-friendly alternatives. Based in New Zealand, Compostic is the innovative brand changing the way we use plastics for food storage.  Their mission is to remove traditional plastics from the world, by providing convenient, high performing and 100% sustainable alternatives. The Compostic Cling Wrap is the world’s first 100% home compostable cling wrap. This product is truly game-changing and functions just like traditional cling wrap. Compostic is making it easier for us all to go plastic-free with thoughtful alternatives that get the job done. The brand also recently created Resealable Snack Bags that are durable and strong and contain ZERO traditional non-compostable plastics.

Feminine Care

Over the past few years, the feminine care industry has been shaken up by newer brands who understand what’s important to the modern day woman. Menstrual cups have become popular for their sustainable way to have a period. 45 billion single-use period products end up in landfills and waterways every year. Products like the Hello Cup offer a new approach to feminine care.  Made from medical-grade thermoplastic elastomer, Hello Cups comply with EU and FDA standards. These cups also last for years compared to single-use feminine products. Hello Cup also offers re-usable liners made of organic cotton and bamboo fleece that are machine washable.

 

Organic Initiative (Oi) is another innovative brand challenging traditional feminine care. Oi products are free of chemicals, synthetics and toxins and instead are made with natural organic alternatives, to make a better world for everyone. These products are comfortable, absorbent and most importantly work for whatever your needs are. Featuring plant-based applicators and 100% certified organic cotton, Oi is dedicated to giving women power over the products they use on their bodies.   

 

 

Washing

Water is one of our most precious resources and conserving it wherever possible is one step towards conservation. Solid shampoos and conditioners have recently become more mainstream for their unique and eco-friendly format. A solid shampoo or conditioner bar will last up to 6 times longer than their liquid counterparts . It’s water-free formula is highly-concentrated giving your hair exposure to the active ingredients versus a watered down formula leaving your hair looking better than ever. Ethique was one of the first brands to enter this space committing to creating products with zero-waste.  Their products feature biodegradable ingredients and packaging making their products more sustainable than recycling.

 

Ethique also offers body and skincare products like cleansers, moisturizers and scrubs in their signature solid form. They also created an innovative solid laundry and stain remover called Flash! that’s perfect for handwashing delicates, using while travelling or while camping when you need to wash clothing.

 

Personal Care

Personal care is a great category to look for eco-friendly swaps. Sky Organics is committed to taking the guesswork out of product labels by keeping the ingredient list short and sweet and only including the finest plant-powered ingredients. They partner with small family farmers to source our all natural, good-for-you ingredients. Sky Organics’ Cotton Swabs, Cotton Rounds and Cotton Balls are 100% biodegradable and made from certified organic cotton. Not to mention, fragrance-free, chlorine-free and of course, cruelty-free!

 

IntelliWHiTE is another brand looking to shake up oral care. Their toothpastes are thoughtfully formulated with natural ingredients like soothing aloe vera, radish root, proprietary Xyliclay™ complex and calcium carbonate. It’s free from fluoride, dyes, alcohol, parabens, phatlates and more. This effective, but gentle toothpaste delivers the cleansing and polishing benefits of clay without the mess or harsh abrasives! Time to start rethinking your teeth regimen and make the jump to more eco-friendly options.

 

We hope these eco-friendly swaps inspire you to make some small changes to your everyday routines. If we all do our part, we can help conserve the environment for future generations.
