Beginners Guide: 5 Easy Steps to Cut Down on Plastic
It can be overwhelming to start. The zero-waste world can be intimidating and not very diverse or inclusive. We're here to make it fun, easy and help you feel at home.
Here are 5 easy and affordable steps we can all take to cut down on plastic to help the planeta, all while celebrating our cultura.
1 - Say Adios! to the Yolanda Saldivar of your Sink
Ditch your conventional sponge, which will only end up in a landfill, in favor of Squishful's Pop Up Compostable dish sponges. These baddies are made from 100% plant-based, sustainably-grown wood pulp from the Pacific Northwest with zero plastic or dyes. Unlike conventional sponges that end up in landfills, these plastic-free sponges are fully home compostable. The unique shape and durable fibers make it ideal for dishwashing and keeping countertops, sinks, and surfaces clean.
2 - Compostables have More Sazon
Move over single-use plastic dish brushes: we've got you covered with a range of compostable dish brush options that are just as effective but won't end up in a landfill.
3 - Upgrade Your Pot Scrubbing Game
How many plastic-based dish sponges have you tossed in your lifetime? Now is a good time to ditch the plastic and try out our compostable pot scrubber made from 100% natural ingredients (including agave fibers and upcycled, untreated wood). Do yourself a favor and upgrade to this planet-friendly, effective option.
4 - Me Porto Bonito with Zero Waste Body Wash Refills
One thing about us is that we don't believe you have to give up life's simple pleasures when trying to live sustainably. This refillable, biodegradable body wash is the perfect example. The cucumber melon scent will remind you of a fresh agua fresca: crisp, refreshing, slightly sweet, but never overwhelming.
It uses mild ingredients to cleanse the skin while incorporating highly effective skin moisturizers to retain your natural hydration. Perfect sensitive skin!
5 - Single Use Paper Towels = Rata de Dos Patas
Did you know tens of thousands of trees get cut every day just so we can wipe for a few seconds with a paper towel? Let’s go back to the days when our moms wiped the counter with our old gym shirts, but make it stylish and modern. These reusable, cotton kitchen towels are a zero waste swap for paper towel rolls. The fabric towels cling together on the roll and peel off one at a time, ready to clean up any spills. Machine washable and reusable!

A space for our comunidad & lifestyle of sustainability
As proud Mexicanas, we are passionate about social justice, and care a lot about leaving behind a better world for the next generation. A few years back, we were struck by how much of the “zero-waste” branding on the market was erasing the origins of black, brown, and indigenous communities. So, we set out to create a marketplace that celebrates & elevates our cultural ties to sustainability… with only the best low waste products.Learn the full story
