Zero Waste Essentials Kit
Making the sustainable switch is so convenient with all these in one set! These can be part of your regular workday essentials or for your travel adventures. It'd be a great gift for someone who's trying to be more eco-friendly, too.
Each set contains a reusable tote (canvas or lined crocheted net bag), a Rocket reusable tumbler, and a zero waste starter kit complete with a metal straw, cleaner, bamboo toothbrush, and washable pouch.
Choose from a hand-designed tote or from net bag colors like sky blue, peach, cream, and black. You can also pick from silver, teal, or black for the tumbler.
What Makes It Good
Fashion 4 Youth, under the LP4Y (Life Passion for Youth) global alliance, supports the empowerment and professional integration of creative young women in Payatas. Projects like these give the youth in slum areas the necessary support as they make their way towards social inclusion.
SIP is a Filipino enterprise that champions waste management solutions for the people and the planet. Through its The Last Straw initiative, the company reaches out to business owners to encourage them to take concrete steps to reduce plastic waste. They also visit schools to teach kids about proper waste segregation.
Switching to reusable straws and bamboo toothbrushes is perhaps the easiest first step to reducing the amount of plastic waste you throw regularly. Plastic disposables can take hundreds of years to decompose, and even the breakdown of its components can leave microscopic amounts of chemicals that are harmful for marine life.
