On this quest to ecofying my life, the switch to non-toxic home products has been steadily slow and much slower than I would like. While I have switched all necessities, like cookware and dinnerware, and most items that come into contact with the skin like detergent and bedding, I don’t experiment with “extras” or often try anything new. I personally find the search for eco-friendly home and lifestyle items to be overwhelming, so this is where a lifestyle subscription box comes in incredibly handy for a person like me.
Esthoria Box, a subscription service platform that curates natural/non-toxic beauty and lifestyle boxes, recently asked me if I would be interested in trying their February lifestyle box (of course I would!) which has me overjoyed to talk about a service that does the work for those of us who would like help in finding new and interesting eco-home products.
February’s Lifestyle Box* features 5 full size eco-friendly products covering the areas of home fragrance, dinnerware, cleaning products, and oral care. My Canadian readers will be pleased to know that all brands featured in this box are Canada-based, as is Esthoria Box! I have been so pleased and excited about these eco-friendly goodies so let’s get into it!
Really Great Goods 100% Natural Room Spray in ‘Lav Lime’
“An all natural room spray made with a refreshing blend of Lavender and Lime pure essential oils. No additives, synthetic colours or fragrances, ever.”
One of my favorite items in this box! The Really Great Goods Room Spray is completely natural and made with just three simple ingredients – water, lavender essential oil and lime essential oil! It smells most of lime (which I love) and it’s incredibly fresh and light. I’ve taken to spraying my furniture and bedding with it and it completely neutralizes any odors such as the sometimes yucky scent of dogs. I have to mention I really like the mister on this bottle as it does a really fine mist and doesn’t blast out huge water droplets. Like with most room sprays, whether natural or conventional, the scent isn’t long lasting but it serves its purpose and serves it well – just one quick dousing of this spray and your room will smell incredibly fresh, and odors will be decimated!
This room spray comes in a full size 8oz glass amber bottle and values at $16.
Ever Bamboo Room Deodorizer + Dehumidifier
“Has a sneaky stink come to stay in your room? Show it out with Ever Bamboo! Bamboo charcoal is produced from the rapidly growing moso bamboo. Its porous structure gives the charcoal its revolutionary abilities as both a deodorizer and dehumidifier.”
If you’re not familiar with natural room deodorizers, you’re probably looking at this pouch and wondering how it works! Inside this nifty little Ever Bamboo Deodorizer + Dehumidifier pouch is bamboo charcoal granules, which are porous and act to absorb moisture and eliminate odors, rather than mask them. The awesome thing about this pouch is that it’s good for up to a whole year, which is a much longer time than other charcoal deodorizers I have seen on the market. Most ideal for smaller spaces like drawers, cabinets, closets, and even your car! I have mine sitting in my closet just under my hanging clothes where I find they accumulate natural odors from sitting in a closed and unventilated space. There is so much utility to an eco-friendly home product like this one and I think the concept of it is so cool!
The Ever Bamboo Deodorizer values at $9.99.
Mabu Multi Cloth
“The earth-friendly wiping cloth for every day living.”
The Mabu multi-cloth has been a wonder for every day household cleaning! This unique cloth is made completely from wood pulp fiber and is bacteria-resistant because of the way the materials are layered into an open weave, allowing for bacterias and other debris to be thoroughly washed through the cloth. Use it with cleansers/soaps or use it alone to clean any surface in the kitchen, the bathroom, appliances, furniture, or even use it to do the dishes – it’s amazing for any spill and all grime!
The Mabu multi cloth values at $4 – 2 cloths come in this month’s box!
Enviro Glass Straws
The most important step to ecofying your home is reducing/eliminating the amount of plastic you use because it’s toxic to both you and the enviroment. Plastic straws and other plastic throwaway dinnerware pieces are totally unnecessary and are creating so much waste by filling up our landfills and polluting our landscapes and oceans. Get the eco-friendly and economic alternative by buying reusable glass straws! Enviro’s Glass Straws are free of plastic chemicals like BPA and pthalates and are made from 100% borosilicate glass which is the safest and strongest glass commercially available. February’s lifestyle box comes with a combo set of two 8 inch straws and a super handy nylon cleaning brush.
This straw combo set values at $18.
Ola Bamboo Toothbrushes
Yay for more plastic-free alternatives – enter the Ola Toothbrush! The handle of this toothbrush is made entirely from bamboo and is compostable and biodegradable. The bristles are made from soft nylon which are more ideal for our teeth compared to the harsh abrasiveness of medium or hard bristles. Prior to receiving these I actually had not tried a bamboo toothbrush before and I’m so happy to have a replacement of my previous plastic toothbrush! This month’s box comes with two of these babies so you’ll be all set with your dental care for many months until it’s time to replace!
The Ola Toothbrush values at $5.
I am so, so happy and over the moon about the items that came in this month’s lifestyle box and I will happily admit a box full of home goodies is just as exciting as makeup and skincare! Thankfully, Esthoria’s lifestyle box is bi-monthly and rings in at just $30, being very affordable for clean, high quality home + lifestyle goods. If you’re looking for an affordable service that delivers awesome, high quality nontoxic home goods I highly recommend to check this one out!
