Hydroflask 40-Ounce Wide Mouth Bottle
Cutting down on plastic water bottle use is one of the easiest and most effective ways to be more sustainable. Plus, who wouldn't want ice cold water that doesn't taste like melty plastic? In our product test, the Hydroflask beat out plenty of other bottles on the market thanks to its double-walled insulation and extra temperature-retaining capability. It's also easy to hold and perfectly sized for the office or a hike outdoors.
You know that plastic cling wrap you usually use to keep leftover turkey and stuffing fresh? This year, try a reusable wrap made from cotton and beeswax. Just warm up a sheet in the palm of your hands and smooth over the edge of a dish to seal it. It can be rinsed and used again and again—unlike that flimsy plastic stuff.
This year I committed to bringing a cloth napkin with me to work. I use it at meal time, yes, but also to dry my lunch bowl and dab any inevitable coffee spills or condensation rings throughout the day. I would bet I've cut down on using two or three paper towels a day (or at least 40 a month) since I've switched over. If you want to commit to eco friendly products in 2020, cloth napkins are an easy way to go. Not only are they better for the planet, but they also add a little bit of luxury to your otherwise utilitarian office lunch.
Reusable Stojo Cup
No need to kick the cold brew habit—just ask that your barista pour it into your reusable cup, and bring along a straw.... or just bring this reusable Stojo cup, which comes with a sleeve and a straw. When you buy one item at Urban Outfitters during Cyber Week, you'll get another 50 percent off—so pick up your Stojo in conjunction with one of our other favorite sustainable picks, below.

Silicone Sandwich Bags
These silicone bags can be used for snacks, cut-up produce, or even TSA-sized toiletries. You can even sous vide in them if you're nervous about using plastic in a warm water bath. As one reviewer said, "It will pay for itself in one month and stores food in [the] refrigerator and freezer with no problem. And it's dish-washable to boot...what's not like?"
BUY IT: Medium Stasher Silicone Bag, $12 (eligible for 25 percent off your entire order) at Urban Outfitters
Mesh Produce Bags
Keep a few of these lightweight, washable mesh produce bags in your grocery tote and you'll no longer need to rely on those flimsy plastic bags while shopping the bulk-bins, at the farmers market, or in the grocery produce department. We love this set in particular for the color coded tabs denoting weight, should you want to be sure your bulk goodies are weighed and priced out just so.
