There are some things that make going green so much easier. These aren’t super expensive items. Just little things that make your life a little easier being green.
I’m not talking reusable bags, water bottles, lunch boxes and the like. I’m assuming you already have these items. The things I’m talking about, make it EASIER to use these items or avoid others.

1) Bottle Brush
2) Small Cleaning Brush
Mine came with my stainless steel straws, but you can order them separately. The straws are really cool though! My kids love them.
If you need both a bottle brush and small brush, take a look at this combo for $10.
3) Label maker
A must for labeling reusable water bottles, lunch boxes, glass jars used for food storage, and general organization. When you have reusable items, you want a way to label them so you don’t lose them.
My mother-in-law gave me mine as a Christmas gift years ago. BEST GIFT EVER! I never realized how pricey it was. She said she got an amazing Black Friday deal. I hope so, because it’s nice and all, but almost $90?! I’d probably try this one if I were getting one now. This one is listed at $15.99.
4) Dry erase markers
They work really well when you are in a hurry and need to label the top of a glass jar before putting it away. Yes, the marker can wipe off if touched, but I’ve had pretty good luck. You can find these any where pretty cheap. I always grab a few during the back to school sales.
5) Carrying bag for reusable bags
Something to coral all the reusable bags so they aren’t floating all over the place really helps. It’s so easy to grab this and go! Anything will work. I use this system I won in a contest, but any small tote bag would work. Use what you have.
6) Glass jars
I save ALL glass jars that enter the house – spaghetti sauce, pickle, jelly, salsa jars are a particular favorite. They are great for storing items in the pantry, refrigerator and even in the freezer. Why are these green? Because we can replace plastic containers and plastic wrap with these glass jars. These are basically FREE.
What are your must haves?
