7 sustainable products to add to your cart
Support eco-friendly wellness products—and a new Asian American Pacific Islander-owned beauty brand—by purchasing Selfmade True Grit Resilience Scrub. Unlike harsher exfoliants, this product won’t damage your sensitive skin. It’s vegan, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free—and made without any micro-plastics. Plus, the encouraging messaging on the side of the bottle, “What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?” will spark some positive thoughts during your morning shower. Selfmade True Grit Resilience Scrub, $34
Searching for an eco-friendly yoga mat? Consider this one from Ashtaluxe. These mats, which are made in limited batches by a small business, are created with the lowest carbon footprint possible. A win for your environmental footprint—and your practice. If you prefer a yoga mat with more grip, cushion, and support, this is a great one to support your practice, while simultaneously protecting your joints. Ashtaluxe LuxeGrip™ Yoga Mat, $99
Instead of leaving your mat stuffed in a corner (yes, we see you) or shoved under your bed, store it in a practical and beautiful tube. This tube is made with sustainable materials—and without any harmful heavy metals and chemicals. Additionally, Mache prioritizes the long-term sustainability of its products, ensuring your tube will last through years of use. We love the special collaboration print for the “I Am Yoga” tube, designed with Harmony Willow Studio in Brooklyn, New York. Mache I Am Yoga Homi Tube, $108
Combine two of your skincare needs in one with this cleanser. This product removes makeup and washes your face, reducing the number of skincare products you need to purchase. From the development of the product to it landing at your door, Olos uses sustainable processes, including extracting its ingredients through green mechanisms, creating products from recycled goods and purchasing carbon credits. Plus, it details all of its sustainable processes in a yearly report (we’ll celebrate that transparency!). Olos Universal Cleansing Milk, $28
Brighten up your dark circles with this eye cream. Made with all-natural ingredients, including glacial marine mineral water, amber extract, and vitamin C, this cream’s unique blend will make your under-eye area feel (and look) reinvigorated. Glacyo donates 1 percent of all profits toward reforestation efforts and incorporates sustainable processes through the manufacturing of all of its products. Glacyo Amber Extract Eye Cream, $100
Relieve your sore muscles with these sustainable cork massage balls. With two different sizes, these balls will be able to target all of your muscles—from the smallest sores to larger aches and pains. Use these to warm up for your practice or to relieve discomfort after a long flow. Plus, 42 Birds is part of 1% For The Planet, and donates a portion of proceeds to organizations doing environmental work around the world. 42 Birds Cork Massage Therapy Balls “The Little Owls,” $34
Let’s be real: You probably need to upgrade your sock collection. Instead of buying a flimsy pair of cotton socks that won’t hold up more than a month, invest in a pair of high-performance socks that are built to last. Made with sustainable materials, these no-show socks will fit snuggly around your feet, ensuring you won’t have to worry about slippage during your daily mental health walk.
