We’re continuing our Earth Month highlights by showcasing multiple enviro-friendly and sustainable products from brands whose values and actions help to reduce environmental impact. If you are looking for brands that align with your personal, ethical, and sustainable values, the ones we’re showcasing below do that just. These sustainable brands practice ethical practices and celebrate Earth Day every day thanks to their environmentally mindful products.

These enviro-friendly brands practice carbon footprint and waste reduction, use sustainable packaging, commit to ethical work, and respects our planet, as well as human rights. This Earth Day, join us in honoring Phade Straws, Purell, EC30, Boxed WaterTM, Life Elements, and Flourish.
Phade Biodegradable Straws
One of the most common and easiest ways to commit to a more sustainable lifestyle is by avoiding single-use plastics. Did you know that an estimated 500 million straws are used per day! Replacing this seemingly small plastic product with a superior sustainable alternative does make a huge difference. Don’t know where to begin, how about with reusable straw that biodegrades in a few months? Phade Straws are made from a substrate derived from the fermentation of canola oil that maintains the feel and use of traditional plastic, but when composted, Phade completely biodegrades. How’s that for an enviro-friendly brand!
These marine biodegradable drink straws are a perfect example of how traditional plastic consumer products can be replaced by bioplastic alternatives. Get a box of 50 for $9.98 at www.phadeproducts.com and Amazon.

You may remember we introduced Boxed Water and their delicious flavors last Earth Month. The enviro-friendly and sustainable brand has always used sustainable packaging, at 92% plant-based (this also includes the cap!). They are the first national company to offer a sustainable alternative to plastic bottles. Boxed Water produces pure water in cartons made using paper from well-managed forests. They are helping combat the overwhelming usage of single-use plastic bottles. Although plastic bottles are recyclable, recycling efforts can no longer keep up with the world’s plastic production. Boxed Water is truly better.
Boxed WaterTM is currently available for purchase at boxedwaterisbetter.com, Amazon, and select CVS Pharmacy and WholeFoods locations as well as regional grocers.
Life Elements CBD Bath Bombs
On to another product with compostable packaging. Formulated without synthetic fragrances or colorants, Life Elements CBD Bath Bombs can support improving sleep and recovery from inflammation. They feature a zero-waste “naked” packaging made from 100% home compostable Mushroom Packaging. The Life Elements CBD Bath Bomb Collection supports pain relief, recovery from inflammation, and improves sleep.
