No need to wait for the next Earth Day celebration to show that you care about the planet. Practicing even the smallest ways of increasing green living every day can leave a positive environmental impact. These ways include using recycled materials and renewable energy, choosing recycled goods, and ditching single-use products for reusable ones. Another way is by buying sustainable, eco-friendly products of various types, such as those from By Humankind and Public Goods.

To help reduce your carbon footprint and protect Earth this season, here are some of the best eco-friendly products that you can buy from either By Humankind or Public Goods:

A deodorant so natural you can eat it -- that's what By Humankind's refillable deodorant brings to the table. 

This one-of-a-kind refillable deodorant only includes natural ingredients extracted from plants & minerals. It's also aluminum- and parabens-free (ingredients required by the FDA to be labeled an "antiperspirant" and are linked to diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s) and is 40% better at killing Staphylococcus hominis -- the bacteria that causes body odor.

The refillable deodorant is available in four colors with four scents (plus one unscented option) to choose from, and comes with free shipping on orders $15 and above.

Packed with natural ingredients that penetrate your scalp and nourish hair at the roots to keep natural oils intact, not only is this shampoo bar eco-friendly, but also suitable for all hair types!
