Fall is the perfect time to light a candle in your home. Sadly, most candles are harmful for the environment. But fortunately for us, Sanari has created eco-friendly, plant-based candles.

All candles are also handmade in reusable and recyclable glass containers. Fill your home with the coziness and natural smells of this fall season without any guilt.

Babies and toddlers are notoriously messy when they eat, and bibs are generally a must. Forgo the plastic ones and reach for Bibito bibs. Made of nontoxic silicone, the bibs are recyclable—the company offers a “ship it back” program where they accept used bibs, clean them, and have them recycled. It is also an almost 100% plastic-free company. Even the shipping labels are recyclable (most aren’t).
The boxes and notecards are made of FSC and/or 100% post-consumer waste paper, and Bibito carbon-offsets its shipping and gives customers the option to do the same—it frequently ships orders in secondhand boxes. Additionally, the company donates a portion of sales to nonprofits fighting the climate crisis. $18 at www.bibitobaby.com
