Our pop up shop closes soon so we wanted to hop on here to give everyone an update on what our plans are!

Husband Ben’s show is reopening on Broadway (which is very exciting!) in NYC, so we are heading back to the East Coast for a bit and will be putting a pin in the store for now.

We have so loved running our pop up in West Town and have loved getting to know all of you! The support from the community has been truly amazing.

We’re excited for these last few weeks! Stop in to get some last minute plastic-free alternatives or to just say goodbye! We’d love to see you!

Let’s talk about menstrual cups!! We love our @dotcup!

Menstrual cups are a reusable alternative to tampons and pads. They collect fluid rather than absorb it. They last years and the best part is you can wear them for up to 12 hours!

They’re super easy to clean- just boil between periods and/or wash with a gentle, oil-free soap between wears.

They’re a chemical free, eco-friendly swap and I love talking about them!

Have questions about how they work? How to insert them? How to store them? Let me know below!!!

It’s farmers market season!

✅ Produce bags
✅ The Unwaste Shop Tote
✅ Wicker Park Farmers Market

Farmers markets are a great way to support local farmers, get delicious fresh produce, and shop in season.

The best part? The produce is more nutritious and more flavorful than what you get at the supermarket because it’s freshly picked, package free and had way less distance to travel to get to you!

Our @bestowedessentials dish soap block (yes! Dish soap block!) is a great way to eliminate a plastic bottle. It keeps your dishes sparkly clean and we also think it’s pretty nice to look at! 😍

Want to minimize the impact of your beauty routine, but don’t know where to start?

Swap out those cotton balls, cotton rounds and disposable makeup wipes for our @marleysmonsters reusable facial rounds!

Throw them in the laundry and reuse them over and over again! I keep a small laundry bag in the bathroom and collect the rounds in it throughout the week and then just toss it in with the rest of my laundry!

Once you switch over to this sustainable swap, you’ll wonder why you ever used a cotton ball once and then threw it away.

🌿 Available online at www.theunwasteshop.com and in store! 🌿

Are you ready to go plastic free?

We get it. Plastic is literally everywhere and is essentially impossible to avoid. Which is we why opened The Unwaste Shop!

We wanted to give people who were looking to eliminate plastic from their lives a one stop shop to do it.

Don’t know where to start? Come on by and we’ll chat about what the best options would be for you and your home!

06/01/2021

We all know that floss comes in a plastic container, but did you know that floss is made of plastic too?! It takes up to 80 years for a piece of floss to break down. How crazy is that?!

This is why we love our plastic free floss from @me.motherearth! It’s awesome for a few reasons:

↣ The floss is made from bamboo and is biodegradable!

↣ It comes in a refillable bamboo container! Buy the container once and refill it over and over.

↣ It’s durable and works great for teeth that are close together (like mine!).

The next time you run out of floss, think about making the switch! We can have healthy teeth AND a healthy planet! 🌎 @ Chicago, Illinois

Did you know that swiffer pads and other disposable mop pads are made of plastic? When I think about how many I've used and thrown away in my lifetime, it makes me want to cringe! 🤦🏻‍♀️

Luckily there are some great reusable alternatives! One of our favorites are our Juniperseed Mercantile washable, reusable mop pads! They fit the classic swiffer and the swiffer max, are great for dry and wet mopping, and can be used over and over!

🌿 Available online at www.theunwasteshop.com and in store! 🌿

P.S. Another great plastic free option? Cut up old T-shirts or towels to fit the swiffer head and use those instead!

The best part? You don’t have to leave a book to take a book! You can just take a book! 📚

Did you know that liquid shampoo is made up of 80% water? Did you know that you could ditch the plastic bottles and swap to solid shampoo and conditioner bars? They’re all the good ingredients minus the water!

Our @hellohibar shampoo and conditioner bars are one of our favorite sustainable swaps! One bar is equivalent to 16 oz of liquid shampoo or conditioner.

Beauty care that’s good for you AND the planet? Yes, please! Up your plastic free shower routine and give solid shampoo and conditioner bars a try!

#PlasticFreeJuly Tip 22: Ta-ta, traditional TP, these trendy rolls & forest-friendly tissues don't come wrapped in plastic. . Who Gives A Crap offers 100% Recycled or 100% Bamboo options packaged in paper to stay moisture-free, hygienic, & free of any inks, dyes or scents. . Speaking of bathroom & beauty swaps... . #PLASTICFREE JULY TIP 23: Invest in good ‘ole fashion bar soap instead of using plastic pumps or bottles. . Soap Distillery's high-end handmade boutique bar soaps are palm-oil free, made with olive oil & smell like delicious cocktails / drinks. They’re dressed in recyclable cardboard boxes & soon-to-be compostable bags. . If you REALLY love liquid options, re-fill your bottles with liquids (body soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc.) from places like The Unwaste Shop's Refill Station. . TIP 24: Ditch plastic deodorant tubes for recyclable glass or metal jars & compostable cardboard. . There’s a bunch of brands out there, but EcoRoots Baking-Soda Free Deodorant & Meow Meow Tweet seem to work the best for ME! . Feel free to try Tiny Yellow Bungalow's Zero Waste Deodorant & EcoRoots’ Sensitive Deodorant Cream too… . TIP 25: Take care of your hair with biodegradable ties & a bamboo brush. . @terraties are made of organic cotton & natural rubber material that is odorless, long lasting, & can easily break down when put in the compost. . The average hair brush consists of a plastic handle, a plastic cushion base, & plastic pins, BUT this Wood Hairbrush has a bamboo handle with beeswax finish, & a natural rubber base. . Bamboo is biodegradable, naturally antimicrobial, & one of the most #sustainable resources on Earth. Natural Rubber is derived from the sap of rubber trees & is a plant based #eco material. (Thanks @tinyyellowbungalow!) . TIP 26: Peace out single-use beauty products - we’re getting glass, metal & compostable cardboard containers. . We LOVE high quality, cruelty free, toxin-free, vegan natural beauty products from companies like Dirty Hippie Cosmetics (makeup: mascara, eyeshadow, concealer, blush, etc). . 📷✨ @ecoconscious_emma
#PlasticFreeJuly Tip 17: Switch to Swedish Dishcloths & rags instead of plastic wrapped paper towels! . The Unwaste Shop’s stylish Swedish Dishcloths last over 200 washes & replace up to 17 rolls of PTs when cleaning up counters & spills! 🌻 . Gotta have paper for particular messes? Get it from brands like Who Gives A Crap that offer paper-wrapped products. . Plastic Free July Tip 18: Replace sponges made of micro-plastics with cotton dish cloths or bamboo brushes. . We love to up-cycle old wash clothes, cut-up towels, and even t-shirts as cleaning rags. ♻️ . If we have to buy heavy-duty dish scrubbers, we fancy Full Circle, Tiny Yellow Bungalow’s Wooden Dish Washing Brush, @TheUnwasteShop’s Bamboo & Palm Fibre Scrubber AND other brands that use eco materials too, of course! . Plastic Free July Tip 19: Cut out cleaning products stored in plastic containers & make your own #zerowaste DIY solutions stored in glass bottles. . Kathryn Kellog’s got some easy recipes for #eco cleaners on her Going Zero Waste blog & @theunwasteshop’s refillable liquid & powdered options do the trick too. 🌱 . Plastic Free July Tip 20: Ditch plastic bottles of liquid dish soap & use #sustainable soap bars. . We LOVE that Meliora Cleaning Products come wrapped in NO plastic packaging (recyclable cardboard boxes or compostable brown paper). Each bar lasts a month (we’re w/o dishwasher!) so we buy in bulk to save on shipping and minimize our carbon footprint! 🧼 . Chicago locals: ONE MORE MONTH to shop at @TheUnwasteShop’s pop-up store - stop in & stock up on #plasticfree essentials! .

After slipping into your favorite feel-good #eco essentials... ☀️ #optoutside to soak up that vitamin-D, whenever possible (Tiny Yellow Bungalow sells plastic-free sunscreen) 🌳 unwind on a long walk in a forest preserve (Bee's Wrap from The Unwaste Shop make packing a picnic lunch easy) 📖 grab a good book & scout a shady spot to read (New Book Joy recommends riveting reads) 🎧 hang up a hammock & journal / draw or listen to music / podcasts (#MAJAMASearth's NEW #CAREWHATYOUWEAR & SO MUCH MORE Podcast is pretty good 😉🌎) 🌿 grow a vegetable & herb garden or pretty flowers & plants (@masterclass's @ronfinleyproject episodes are SO inspiring) 🧘 workout or practice your yoga/mindfullness routines in fresh air, wherever that may be (Yoga With Adriene had very easy FREE videos on YouTube & DoneGood carries ethical #ecofriendly yoga gear) 🌱 dine outdoors at a local vegetarian or #vegan-friendly restaurant or get food to go & eat at a nearby park (Upton's Breakroom, No Bones Beach Club & Ground Control make the BEST mood-boosting-foods) 🌊 watch the waves roll in & clouds pass overhead at the beach / take a swim in a lake or ocean (Lake Michigan's dunes are a Midwest staple) 🌸 dedicate rainy days to a local conservatory or arboretum (Garfield Park Conservatory & The Morton Arboretum are a MUST for #Chicago-land locals) . NOTE: These are things that help ME cope with the physical & mental side-effects of everyday stressors (based on personal experiences)... PLEASE make an in-person appointment with your doctor or schedule a virtual visit with a mental health professional if you are struggling & in need of medical help! You can always have your call outdoors, as long as you pick a private safe space that's quiet & comforting (or indoors where you can look out a window from time to time). 💛 . 📷✨ Phillip Sturm @corizl . . . #USAMADE #organic #sustainablelifestyle #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #naturelover #naturelovers #natureaddict
