In light of Earth Month, I wanted to share some eco-friendly products I found on Etsy. I like Etsy because as an earthpreneur and small shop owner, I do love the concept of supporting local crafters, artists, and product-makers rather than pouring money into the big corporations. These sustainable products make it easy to incorporate three essential principles I try to live by: reduce, reuse, and recycle. We
- Do I really need it?
- Can it be reused?
- Will it help me live sustainably?
- Could I get it second-hand instead?

String net reusable shopping bag
Say no to plastic bags and bring your own string-net reusable shopping bag. These are made from cotton and natural dye in an ethical fabric in India where the women receive fair working conditions. They expand when you put your groceries in them and fold up neatly in your handbag.
Plastic bags have a dire and severe impact on the environment and the sea. Numerous whales have washed ashore, tummies full of plastic. Whereas several countries have led the way to ban plastic bags, we don’t need to sit on the fence and wait for it to happen here: you can say no to plastic by start introducing sustainable and green products into your daily life.
Bring your own: Ceramic Travel Mug
Even though coffee mugs that are made of cardboard can be recycled, most of them sadly end up on the landfill. Recycling or not, bringing your own coffee mug is an effective way also to reduce your consumption. These travel mugs are so pretty you can’t help but want to bring them along. Heck, there are coffee mugs on Etsy that could complement your entire fashion outfit. Maybe your friends or co-workers will want to buy their own too when they lay their eyes on these?

Green beauty products on Etsy
Green beauty products are all the rage at the moment, and with good reason. Not only is it good for our planet, but it is also perfect for your health. If you fancy making your own, I suggest having a look at my essential oils – all my oil customers get support, recipes and everything they need to create everything from skin care products to eco-friendly cleaners.
If you prefer to buy your beauty products all ready for use, then why not get them directly from entrepreneurs who pour their heart and soul into these non-toxic beauty products? The image below shows an excellent example of organic, safe deodorant in a biodegradable package. There are also many other beauty products for you to explore on Etsy.
Zero waste reusable cotton pads
Drop the disposable ones and take a step towards zero waste living with reusable cotton pads – perfect to remove make-up and whatever else you use the disposable ones for. They are easy to wash, and when their lifespan is over they will biodegrade.
