Sustainable Products Roundup

Here we go with the latest in sustainable products. Only two this time.

Microfiber Towels from Method (via Treehugger)

We first discovered and wrote about method a while back; we loved their product’s design and low impact on the planet, with a commitment to non-toxicity and no animal testing. We’re glad to see they’ve been diligently working to add new products since; their latest innovation encourages us to “throw in the towel.”

They’ve introduced new four new microfiber towels designed to stem the flood of paper towels into the waste stream; each microfiber is finer than a human hair and is sliced 16 times, resulting in millions of microscopic hooks in each cloth to capture dirt, dust and even six times their weight in water. Reusing the towels only makes them stronger, too — using the cloths splits fibers, creating more surface area.

The towels come in four varities, specifically designed for a particular medium: glass, granite, stainless steel and wood. There are a multitude of other new products since we’ve last seen method, and they’re now available in the UK as well as the US and Canada. Buy online or at Target, Office Depot, Linens-N-Things and more. ::method

Eco-Dent Toothpowder: Airplane-Safe Way to Brush Your Teeth (via Treehugger)

As everyone is undoubtedly aware by now, the US Transportation Safety Administration has banned liquids and gels from carry-on baggage on airplanes, making it tough on anyone without checked baggage to do everyday things like brushing their teeth.

Eco-DenT has a solution for TreeHuggers everywhere: their toothpowder is an airplane-safe way to keep up dental hygiene without having to buy a new tube every time you step off a plane. Eco-DenT Toothpowder’s travel pack contains 15 1-day packs of toothpowder; each pack is sufficient for two brushings.

The convenient pouches fit easily into a pocket, purse, wallet, backpack, fanny pack, attaché case or other travel bag. Because it’s “toothpaste” in powder form, it isn’t restricted by the airlines, leaving you free to brush your teeth as you please without having to stash it in checked luggage and hope it makes it to the other side.

Best of all, the toothpowders are 100% natural (baking soda is the main ingredient) and 100% cruelty-free. Eco-DenT says their products are available at most major natural product stores and online retailers; they also have an online store for your shopping convenience. ::Eco-DenT via ::PR Web
