More Sustainable with Daily Life

We are all trying to be more sustainable and I’ve found that replacing common products that we use in daily life is the quickest and easiest way to make that happen. Let’s chat about a couple of eco-friendly products that I have fallen in love with and I think you will too.  Prato Botanico Italian skincare, Pirani Party Tumblers, Broken Top Brand – are three totally different products but both have a mission to better the world, one product at a time!

Prato Botanico

What we put on our skin is as important as what we put into our bodies. That’s why I love Prato Botanico, because it is an all-natural organic skincare line that uses the purest botanical extracts to give you beautiful-looking skin.

The entire Prato Botanico line is created in small batches that are cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, and NATRUE certified, the highest and most stringent organic certification a skincare brand can receive from this organization.

This Italian skincare line is luxurious from the look of the packaging to the ingredients in the product and the feel of them on your skin. The day and eye cream are simply amazing and make my skin feel instantly hydrated – which says a lot with the way this brutal winter has dried out my skin!  It absorbs quickly and just makes my face feel so soft, refreshed, firmer (less wrinkles), and healthy.

Another product that this a must in Ohio is their Moisture Boosting Lip Balm. My lips have really suffered from the cold weather this winter, we take daily walks and have dry air in our house, so my lips have suffered. I’ve been loving how this balm not only restores moisture to my lips but also gives them the vitamins and minerals they need. Of course, all natural too.


I think a lot of us do a pretty good of using reusable cups while out and about for our water and coffee but what about parties and other outings? As soon as you show up to a party or gathering, you see tons of single-use plastic cups. Pirani is a really easy way to be more sustainable with their reuseable party cups!

Why haven’t we thought of this before?  Bringing your own cup is a great way to be eco-friendly, plus it’ll keep your drink colder for 12 hours or warmer for 6 hours as a bonus. There are even measured lines to help you stay in control of your portions!

I’m going to start off with a family pack and grow my collection from there for my own home because what I hate more than additional plastic waste at parties is the spills!  It never fails, there are always spills with those plastic party cups. This insulated party tumbler comes with a lid, so when you’re not drinking from it, you can close it. LOVE that!
For now, we’ll be taking these reusable party cups to our family gatherings and outings – they will be great for picnics this summer too.

Broken Top Brands

Broken Top Brands offers hand-crafted sustainable and eco conscious luxury bath, body and home products with natural and organic materials. They have products for men and women but I am most excited about the scents for men!

They have scent collections that are familiar yet unexpected. Take Birch Charcoal – sounds outdoorsy and manly but it’s refreshing at the same time.  (For ladies, there are florals and fresh tones too.)

They are mindfully sourced to be renewable and recyclable, free of parabens and gluten as well as vegan.

There are 4 scents for men for body wash. My outdoorsy teen son loves the Birch Charcoal. He loves the adventurous woodsy scent and it suds up well. Every man that wants to smell good – earthy – manly – needs their Man Spray.  This spray is great as a body mist but also to freshen up any stinky areas in a man’s life like the bedroom, bathroom, closet, living room, etc.I don’t think my son has had a candle in his life but I took a chance with this line of soy candles because the scents are so outdoorsy – nothing girly here (unless you choose the girly line!).   Made from soybean oil in the USA, these candles offer a clean, slow burn that doesn’t pollute the air like ordinary candles.

Their candles incorporate all-natural cotton and cotton core wicks that are lead and zinc-free. Needless to say, this is the epitome of a “feel good” brand!
