Have been an eco consumer for a while now, I’ve spent time reading articles, do some searching on terminologies and got myself a fair amount of eco-friendly household products as well as experience over some certain sides of the eco market, about each product I tried to make a seperate list for you guys and give as much as insight and detailed comparisions as possible. Now after a fine number of posts and over a hundred reviews for the same hundred of products, I think it’s time I re-checked my “purchased” list and my wishlist and performed a little cherry-picking job to make a best-of-the-best top list for you guys.
This list features the most impressive eco-friendly products on the eco-market that is noteworthy because of not only the revolutionary idea lying behind them but also their prominent qualities that can hardly be found in the same-field / same-purpose products of the similar price range.
Because some of the listed items may be picked from one of the available top lists, so just in case you fancy any of them, you can read our other article about the topic includes the object to get more reviews as well as opinions around what you are looking for.
01. Jasis Woo – Storage Basket Storage Bin Storage Cube with Handles Small Canvas Fabric Cotton Linen Collapsible, French S, Small(8.25 x 7.87 x 5.91 inch)
Buy it now
One of the most powerful item in this list is this basket storage bin with handles made from canvas fabric. Why did I say that? Why is this powerful?
Well, they can be used to hold a lot of things, from your child’s toys to your favourite Radiohead’s DVDs, and at a portable size for your kids to hold their books to a friend’s house to do group work, or for your wife take it to the supermarket / market and bring her food home safe without a help from plastic bags.
It also has a large size option for those who want to have one of these to store electronic devives and comestics. Well, pretty convenient. No more room for plastic baskets in the house. And if you are fond of the idea, the basket can also be used as a reusable paper-rubbish basket where you can throw your cinnamon roll packages into without having to leave your room.
The thing I love the most about this bag is that it is standable, which means you can take time putting your things in and it does not collapse. I would say if you want to store your picnic preparation into the basket you don’t really need the help from another hand. Shout out to canvas bags / baskets. I really love these and I would definitely recommend more storage bag choices later in the list – the surprise awaits.
02. ToiletTree – Products 100% Natural Bamboo Deluxe Shower Floor and Bath Mat, Skid Resistant, Heavy-Duty
Buy it now
Every time I suggest an eco-friendly product, I remind myself of what we have before them. And yes, before natural bamboo shower floors / bath mats, I think we have rubber ones and plastic bath mats. And my experience with them? Horrible. Apart from the fact that they are made from plastic which causes much more harm being thrown away, plastic bath mats stink after a period of use. And the smell is unbearable. And some of the rubber mats lose their grip after a while I think.
After I found these bamboo mats, probably not long after experiences with other materials, I’ve never doubted my choice again. And this shower floor / bath mat made from one hundred percent natural bamboo can be the best I’ve had. It is strong, it doesn’t lose its grip after a quite long time. The mat comes with a very elegant, luxury design that fits just right into my bathroom. Its bottom side doesn’t leave scratches on the ceramic floor and it never smells badly. The color of the mat does not change much exposed to water everyday also.
You would be very pleased with the purchase if you are looking for an alternative for your bathroom plastic mat.
03. Miw Piw – Whole Natural Loofah | Pack 3| Vegetable Dish Scouring Pad for Kitchen | Bath Sponge Body Exfoliating Scrubber Shower | Lufa Loofa Luffa Cellulose Biodegradable Compostable Zero Waste Washer
Buy it now
Use natural loofahs because you don’t need plastic-fabric ones. These loofahs are plant-based which makes them natural – as being from a part of nature – biodegradable and compostable. These impressed me with their quality.
I used them as bath sponge before, they make good bubbles and clean my skin well. Because they are from organic sources, I did expect them to be a little rough on the surface but turned out they are not really rough overall, they are still soft enough to be gentle on skin, I think. After use they develop no odor and it takes them a fair while to fall apart. They are pretty sustainable. And just like what you can do with other plastic-fabric sponges, you can devide these into smaller sponges if you wish to. They would just function as perfectly with their new size I think.

Buy it now
Just as promised, you can see now we are obviously introducting to you another basket. Hold on, however, because the use of this one can be very diffent from the already introduced. And just as clear as you can see, these are made from woven cotton rope, which is different from canvas, material wise.
First of all, because of the shape, these can’t be as portable as the other one, although the size is not so much different. They are more of a house decor – multifuntional basket. You can trick your kid into tidying his own toys buy buying him this wonderful coiled round toy basket. You can out your worn clothes in these, letting them wait for a wash. You can use them to keep towels, spare bed draps and pillow covers. These can also be used to keep your nursery in place while not destroying the perfect sphere of your house with plastic basket. Why not?
These are a stiller version of a basket, more decorative for those who love to make their house a more loving place while still want to have things in their right place.
I think it’s best to have both a portable one and a beautiful sitting-still one with you if you have a family.
07. Nummyware – Plastic-free Glass Baby Food Storage Container with Sustainable Bamboo Top (4, 180mL set)
Buy it now
What I fancy about these conventional looking storage container is that they are 100% natural. The body part is made out of glass, a house-hold material. The lids though, they are bamboo. They are strong, durable and very delicate to look at. They are also plastic free, biodegradable and recyclable. The white glue strip around the bamboo lid is made of food grade silicon, which is safe for your food and safe for nature.
I choose these over plastic-based storage containers and glass containers with plastic lids. The bamboo lids outdo plastic in many hand to hand combat. They don’t develop odors after time of use. They don’t easily break. They hold on tight even with a filled body. They obviously look more luxury.
If you are looking for a food storage and can’t choose your best suit, you can buy both the beeswax wrappers and these 100% natural containers. All at your convenience.
Using these, however, you are recommended to wash the lids by hands.
08. Bee’s Wrap – Assorted 3 Pack, Eco Friendly Reusable Food Wraps, Sustainable Plastic Free Food Storage – 1 Small, 1 Medium, 1 Large
Buy it now
These beeswax wraps bustle their way into this list while I was making the top eco-friendly list for kids. They came to mind so naturally. Because above all the traditional way of storing food, in boxes or in bags, these stand out due to their prominent flexibility. They can wrap an apple, a sandwich, a burrito and even a banh-mi. They are there for dried food and fruits that need to be wrapped to be stored in your refridgerator. They are eco-friendly, made from natural beeswax and can be reused over time. I find the idea of natural food wrappers really promising. If the natural material can be applied to other fixed-shape containers, they are potential of replacing metal and plastic-based ones.
