For me, being more sustainable at home means buying products that serve multiple purposes and investing in quality products that last. I used to have a hoard of those cheap, flimsy plastic cutting boards. They were convenient because I could shove them in the dishwasher, but they didn't last, meaning a lot of unnecessary plastic in a landfill. I have one cutting board now, and it's so beautiful it's actually countertop decor. It also doubles as a cheeseboard. Billed as the world's most hygienic cutting board, Fab Slabs are made from Camphor Laurel trees which possess antibacterial properties. Tests conducted on Fab Slabs from the last decade have shown zero bacteria growth. These pretty boards come at a premium, though, but right now, there are a handful of styles on Wayfair for up to 55 percent off! It's almost too good to be true, and I highly suggest you pounce on this deal ASAP.
Through May 2, W&P has slashed prices sitewide by 20 percent. It's a great time to stock up on the Porter series of reusable containers and drinkware. Who knew a reusable coffee mug could be so cute? I own the pink terrazzo mug and I love it. The Porter series features water bottles, too. But it's really expanded to anything you'd need for eating on the go, from reusable cutlery to bowls and lids. These are great for RVing and camping as well as injecting some style into your office lunch.
Avocado is celebrating Earth Day all month long with special deals on mattresses, bed frames, bedding and more. The Climate Neutral Certified brand specializes in mattresses and furniture that's both organic and nontoxic. Through May 10, save $200 on any latex or vegan latex mattress with code "EARTH" at checkout. Plus, save up to $300 on select bed frames and furniture and take 15 percent off throws — no code needed.
Eliminating single-use water bottles is one of the easiest ways to cut down on your plastic count and carbon footprint. And S'well is making it even easier by giving away free water bottles! Now through May 3, get a free 17-ounce, stainless steel S'well water bottle with any purchase from their Mother's Day Collection. Plus, enjoy free shipping in the U.S. on any order over $30.
One of the biggest culprits of single-use plastics is likely in your shower: soap bottles. Spongelle sponges eliminate the bottle with a four-in-one product. It's a body wash, loofah, exfoliator and moisturizer all in one. Each Spongelle lasts for about 14 uses and after the soap is gone, you can use Spongelles as regular sponges for kitchen and bathroom cleaning. The mini Spongettes are also great for travel and eliminate the need for tiny plastic bottles, too. Whether you're looking for a sustainable gift for mom or yourself, take 30 percent off any order with code "MOMSDAY" at checkout. Plus, a portion of sales will go to the Women's Earth Alliance.
Your furry friends can reduce their carbon pawprint, too. Project Blu is offering $10 off all eco-friendly dog beds plus free shipping on orders over $65. The company transforms ocean-bound plastic and landfill-bound clothing into 100 percent recycled fabrics and fillings. They even have a line of recycled leather collars and leashes. To date, Project Blu has converted more than six million plastic bottles.
