10 Ways to Reduce Waste in Your Home {Win an Omaïki Zero Waste Starter Kit!}

Omaïki isn’t just diapers anymore! We all know and love Omaïki’s cloth diapers, but did you know they also carry a complete range of reusable, sustainable, zero waste products for mom, baby, family, and your home?

As we near the end of 2018, I hope you’ll join me in making a New Year’s resolution to make 2019 cleaner and greener. Fortunately there are lots of ways to cut down on our use of disposable items and reduce waste in our lives and homes. Here are some of the ways that Omaïki can help!

1. KLIIN Towels

KLIIN towels are machine-washable and compostable cleaning cloths that replace traditional disposable paper towels. Made with 100% natural fibres, each towel can be washed and reused up to 300 times. Once you’re ready to dispose of it, just drop it in the compost bin where it will biodegrade in 28 days!

2. HÖM Handkerchiefs

Handkerchiefs are a classic accessory for a reason! Omaiki makes 100% cotton handkerchiefs you can use, wash, and reuse for years to come. Each set comes with four handkerchiefs: two in a fun or trendy print and two in a complementary solid.

3. HÖM Multi Case

Waterproof Multi Cases are the perfect ”on the go” case for your reusable utensils, straws, toothbrush, or whatever else you need to keep clean in your bag or car.

4. BKIND Bamboo Toothbrush

Did you know you can replace your plastic toothbrush with a biodegradeable one? BKIND toothbrushes are made from naturally durable, antibacterial, and sustainable bamboo, and the infused charcoal nylon bristles are recyclable. When you’re done, remove the bristles and recycle them, then compost the bamboo handle.

5. Bamboo Straws

Earth-friendly bamboo straws won’t rot or mold, and they’re completely biodegradable. Don’t forget a straw brush to keep them clean!

6. Lötus Cloth Pads

All those tampons and pads, month after month, year after year, add up to create a lot of trash! Making the switch to reusable cloth pads will replace around 10,000 pads and tampons over the average woman’s lifetime. Omaïki’s Lötus pads are made in Canada from Canadian fabrics, and their exclusive blend of bamboo and organic cotton make for silky soft and exceptionally comfortable pads.

7. HÖM Make-up Remover Pads

Instead of disposable cotton pads or cotton balls, try these washable, reusable cloth make-up remover pads instead. Just throw them into a mesh bag and wash with the rest of your laundry, then use again. Not only will you keep hundreds of disposable pads out of the trash, but the “grabby” fabric texture makes removing make-up that much easier.

8. Gustö Reusable Snack and Sandwich Bags

Waterproof, leak resistant, and durable Gustö reusable zipper bags replace disposable plastic Ziploc bags. They come in four sizes and are lined in food-safe, washable PUL fabric for easy clean-up.

9. HÖM Bulk Bags

Instead of all those plastic produce bags, consider switching to washable cotton bulk bags. These make great gift bags too! Available in 3 sizes.

10. Beeswax Food Wrap

Use beeswax food wraps where you might use plastic cling wrap. The warmth of your hands will shape the wrap around food or over bowls and help it stick to itself. Rinse in cold water with a sponge or towel to clean.
