#GoGreen: 10 Beautiful reusable items to have

ECOlunchbox Stainless Steel Solo Cube

Pack your sandwiches, snacks and more in this lunchbox. Eco-friendly and BPA-free, it is made of stainless steel in a sleek cube design. Ordering takeout? Kick the plastic habit and bring this along with you. 

Blafre Peacock Lunchbox

Or if you prefer a pop of graphic, take on this adorable food-safe coated metal lunchbox with peacock prints by Blafre.

Hummingbird ‘Fiji Bikini’ Glass Straws

Next time you order a drink outside, say #taknakstraw – bring around your own instead. This glass straw pack by Hummingbird comes in the prettiest colours of teal and seashell purple, so you’ll be sipping on your smoothie or cocktail in style and playing your part in reducing plastic waste at the same time.

KeepCup Espresso

Not only are KeepCups environmentally friendly and durable, they are also available in a plethora of designs. One of our favourites is from the Café Series, the classic looking Espresso model with a natural cork band, black lid and plug.

Shanghai Tang Lattice Enamel Chopsticks

An estimated 57 billion pairs of disposable chopsticks are produced in China every year – think of the trees! On top of that, some of them are of questionable quality and method of production. So do yourself and the environment a favour by picking up a pair of these exquisitely made chopsticks and eliminate the use of disposable ones.

Anthropologie Forged Flatware

Like chopsticks, disposable cutleries are commonly used at parties and fast-food joints – just imagine how much are disposed daily. Why not BYO cutleries too? They might as well be this beautiful set of stainless steel flatware by Anthropologie.

Soma Glass Water Bottle

We love the simple, high-quality design of the water bottle, and its mission of giving back: with every Soma Bottle purchased, a donation is made to support safe drinking water projects globally.

S’well ‘Waikiki’ Stainless Steel Water Bottle

You love your thermos for keeping your drinks hot (or cold), but you wished it was more chic – enter S’well. This double-walled stainless-steel water bottle features ThermaS’well fabrication that will keep your cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot drinks hot for up to 12. The wide mouth makes it easy to fill, add ice cubes and clean, and a portion of proceeds from the sale of each bottle goes to UNICEF. What more can one ask for?

Kate Spade New York Newspaper Print Canvas Shopping Tote

With Selangor’s total ban on plastic bags starting this year, you could say we are off to a good start. If you haven’t already, say no to the RM0.20 plastic bags and start toting your groceries in a good(-looking), durable canvas shopper bag – like this one by Kate Spade.

Standard Baggu Shopper

Another shopper bag to consider will be one from Baggu, a brand known for their playful prints and colours, as well as practicality – simply fold it away and tuck it into your handbag when not in use.
