1. A pack of reusable grocery bags that fold down to about the size of your palm. Most grocery stores charge for you to use plastic or brown paper bags, but you won’t have to worry about that because now you’ll always have one of these in your purse or your car during a last-minute grocery trip!
The bags can hold up to 50 pounds, and they’re machine washable.
Promising review: « I purchased these bags because I have quite a walk from my garage to my house. These bags are AMAZING! I stuff them full and they never tear. I also get water by the gallon and these bags hold them. They make my life easier!! Try these bags, you will love them! » —MB

2. Or a pack of four mesh string bags — they might seem small but can actually expand to fit 40 pounds. Plus: Just imagine how chic you’ll look carrying this around your local farmer’s market, filled with freshly picked herbs and veggies.
Promising review: « These work great! I love these bags when shopping for produce. They have a great deal of integrity; they can hold a lot of weight and stretch quite a bit. They were packaged very conservatively and arrived in an airtight zip-top bag (which I will also reuse!). If it comes to the point where I need more than four, I will definitely buy this product again! I’m very happy. » —Zoe Jans

3. A roll of heavy-duty, eco-friendly, machine-washable, reusable bamboo towels worth buying if you realize you spend way too much on paper towel rolls in a month and also want to cut down on your waste.
You’ll receive 20 sheets a roll, and the sheets are machine washable and reusable up to 120+ times before discarding.
Promising review: « Wow. I just used these for the first time to wash my windows. I get a lot of oily dirt from the road, and it usually smears around and gets stuck in whatever old washcloth or sock I am using. As soon as I dropped these in my bucket of soapy water and gave them a little scrub, the dirt lifted right out like magic. Next used them to clean crumbs and spills out of my fridge and freezer and same thing — they rinsed clean (almost clean) right away. There’s some dirt still in them, but I’ll put them through the wash next. » —SBP
