6 Eco-Friendly Products That Will Save You Money!
We all know that living a more eco-friendly lifestyle is beneficial to the environment. But did you know it has the potential to save you money, too?
Many eco-friendly products actually work out to be more cost-effective in the long-term due to their reusable, sustainable nature. From kitchen wrap to coffee pods, keep reading for our top picks on eco-friendly products that save you money!
Reusable shopping bags
With plastic bags now banned from supermarkets across the country, reusable shopping bags are the way to go. Instead of spending between 15c – 99c per shopping bag each time you do your groceries, opt for reusable bags as a more sustainable, cost-effective alternative. Reusable shopping bags are available in a range of sizes to suit everything from fresh produce to canned goods. Don’t forget to keep a handful in your car or handbag for any last-minute shopping trips, too!
Reusable water bottles
Plastic water bottles are one of the most harmful and unnecessary contributors to landfill – not to mention expensive over time! Save yourself the extra costs by purchasing a sturdy reusable water bottle instead, so you can fill up each day from home. If you only drink filtered water, consider investing in a water filtration unit, or take advantage of filtered water refill stations in your local area.
Reusable sanitary products
Sanitary products like pads and tampons are a monthly expense that can add up significantly over time – not to mention their impact on the environment. Sustainable alternatives like menstrual cups, cloth pads and period-proof underwear will quickly pay for themselves and save you money in the long run.
Reusable coffee cups and pods
Did you know many cafes offer a discount on coffee simply by bringing your own reusable cup? For those with daily takeaway coffee habits, an inexpensive eco cup has the potential to save you hundreds. Similarly, investing in reusable coffee pods for your machine at home can reduce your contribution to landfill significantly while also working out cheaper over time.
Reusable kitchen wraps
Single-use plastic wraps like cling wrap are another kitchen product that can be easily replaced for a more sustainable and cost-effective alternative. Opt for reusable kitchen wraps instead, which can be washed and reused again and again.
Soapberries are a natural alternative to traditional laundry detergents, known as “nature’s soap” due to their high levels of saponin. Using soapberries works out at just 10c per load of washing – approximately ⅓ the coast of standard detergents. You can also use soapberries to make your own washing up liquid, hand wash and body wash, too.
