At the Strategist, we love a good dupe, and in lots of ways, ecofriendly products are the greatest dupe of all: In many cases, you’re not just using a better product, you’re also doing a little bit to help the planet and the people who live on it with you. Back in 2018, we dedicated a week to finding and sharing the best ecofriendly products, but since then, our understanding of sustainability has evolved to include more than just reducing waste. Sustainability also means thinking about responsible sourcing, environmentally friendly production, even fair labor practices.
So we’re celebrating Green Week again and, this time, we’re going even deeper into the world of ecofriendly products and sustainable brands, highlighting the best products that leave a light footprint and solve little household problems. We’ll also be answering some very 2021 questions. (For instance: What is the best sustainable face mask?) Below are some of our favorite ecofriendly finds so far, but keep checking back daily for more.
