The holiday season feels like it’s right around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about holiday shopping and key questions like: Who will you buy for? What will you buy? How can you make planet-friendly choices while shopping?
We’re here to help ease some of that shopping anxiety by sharing a few of our favorite eco-friendly products that we’re launching in our September Product Drop, available from September 6th to 12th. Because it’s never too early to start planning.
In the latest episode of Good Together, Brightly co-founders Laura and Liza spotlighted some sustainable products we can’t wait for you to discover this month. (This is just a handful—there are many more to come!) Below you’ll find uniquely planet-positive options available across home goods, beauty, and beyond.
7 Eco-Friendly Products We’re Loving This Month
Why Laura Loves It: “I’ve used this product from PYT for years! It’s a wonderful eyeshadow palette. I personally don’t put a ton of eye makeup on myself; I usually go for a pretty natural look. But this palette does have a lot of beautiful neutral colors in it.”
When the shop opens, the first 200 people who spend $100+ will get the PYT Eyeshadow Palette and Plump It Up Lip Gloss—yes, the set!—for free. (That’s a $42 value!)
Why Laura Loves It: “The premise behind UpCircle is that they reuse wasted ingredients in the supply chain and make skincare out of them, which is really cool. They have this wonderful serum I’ve been using that uses discarded coffee grounds. They also have a scrub that uses those coffee grounds. But literally when you use the serum, it really smells faintly of coffee. My face has been obsessed!”
Why Liza Loves It: “You’ve probably seen shampoo and conditioner bars from HiBAR. They’re amazing. They’re fun, and have lines for different hair types—maintain, moisturize, and soothe—that do different things for your hair. You even get a fun freebie exclusive when you order—a free travel pouch with any of the sets!”
4. Leaf Shave
Why Laura Loves It: “You’ll literally have this razor forever. I know that sounds ridiculous, but you will and it’s literally something you could pass down. It’s a beautifully made metal razor. The individual razor blades themselves do need to be recycled in a responsible fashion. Definitely give it a try!”
Why Liza Loves It: “These are made from recycled glass by artisans in Tonalá, Mexico. I love them. They’re gorgeous and extremely sturdy. We make sure the companies we work with pay artisans fair wages. It’s extremely near and dear to my heart. I’ve collected probably 10 different glasses over the years from this group in different designs.”
Why Laura Loves It: “This actually helps keep avocados fresh for a while. I literally used it this morning! I had previously cut an avocado and put the food hugger on it and put it back in the fridge. The next morning I went to use it and it looks wonderful. There was no brownness!”
7. Trashy Bags
Why Liza Loves It: “This unique bag is made of upcycled plastic water sachets in Ghana. It’s made by artisans and is completely Fair Trade, which is why I’m extremely excited about this. I’ve had mine for a couple of years, and they’re still going strong. They can fold up really nice and neatly.”
You can shop these and other eco-friendly favorites when the September Product Drop launches on September 6th!
