Tableware company Loliware sells disposable cups that are both biodegradable and edible – or in their words, “biodegr(edible).” If it happens to end up in a stream or a waterway where it’s not supposed to, it’s going to break down just like a banana peel would.
This a huge step up from other corn-based bioplastics that are actually still a huge issue in waterways. The cups are made from seaweed and organic sweeteners, so they’re entirely edible. They’re available in a variety of flavors, from Citrus to Cherry to Matcha Green Tea, so you can pair them with your drink of choice.
Solid bar shampoo
Solid shampoos have entirely eliminated the need for plastic bottles to store or distribute a liquid product, reducing their environmental impact enormously and saving tons of plastic from ever being produced or entering landfills. In fact, because they’re solid and self-contained, shampoo bars don’t require any packaging at all.
These mighty bars may be small, but they’ve got an impressive lathering ability that makes them incredibly long-lasting.
Run the shampoo bar over your head in one direction (front to back), as to avoid causing unnecessary knots. Once you have a good amount of shampoo on top of your head, massage it into your scalp with your fingers. Rinse with water until ALL the shampoo is out… Done!
