If you’ve been thinking about reducing waste in your home, now is the perfect time to make the plunge. Goldune, a new virtual hub for sustainable home goods, is running some unmissable seasonal deals like free shipping (details below). Founder Azora Paknad’s curated selection aims to help people navigate the dearth of paper towel alternatives and bamboo-everything items on the market by highlighting personally-vetted products, with a focus on smaller, women-of-color-owned brands. “I wanted to build a solution for people like my friends and family—working moms or super busy people or people with chronic illnesses—who don’t have time to get into cleaning reusable toilet paper,” says Paknad. (Instead, try this unbleached, tree-free toilet paper.)
I usually avoid participating in holidays invented to get people to shop, but this sale is a good opportunity to invest in a few product swaps that, when combined, add up to a bigger lifestyle shift (and cut down on shipping in the process). Right now I’m focusing on making my kitchen sink a no-single-use-plastics zone, starting with this bamboo and melamine counter caddy to store the dish-washing essentials currently languishing on my damp counter. Holes at the bottom provide drainage for drippy sponges, and it splits into two pieces to make it easy to clean—or shapeshift to best fit your space. I’m filling my caddy with items like biodegradable pop-up sponges, sturdy scrubbing brushes, and blocks of dish soap to replace those plastic bottles.
