A toilet paper that has a sense of humor and is sustainable? Who Gives a Crap was started in 2012 as a crowdfunding project to create 100% recycled toilet paper. Avoid buying a household necessity at a market where it is typically covered in plastic wrapping and instead buy in bulk with eco-friendly packaging. Who Gives a Crap is a Certified B Corporation that donates 50% of its profits to its nonprofit partner WaterAid to ensure everyone has access to clean water and a toilet.

Reduce your carbon footprint by making your own soaps! Eco-friendly soap is a great alternative to shower gels or hand soap in plastic bottles that just end up in landfills. Most handmade soap recipes contain the chemical compound lye, which can be dangerous when not handled properly. Most of the tools needed to create your own soap can be found in a standard kitchen, but when handling lye, be sure to wear protective clothing including eyeglasses, gloves, and a mask to avoid breathing in the chemical.

Here’s a researched resource that lists 8 different shampoo and conditioner products that don’t put bad chemicals into the waste stream and come from cruelty-free, palm oil-free natural ingredients that are sustainably sourced and vegan if possible. Aside from avoiding cancer-causing sulfates, parabens, silicones, sulfates, or similar, the packaging and demographics are also considered. The “beauty” industry makes a lot of ugly waste — 120 billion units of packaging each year with 91% of all the plastics created not getting recycled. Bonus if you can get a brand that is locally made!
