By far the best hand balm I've ever used on these 63-year-old hands! The balance of ingredients is perfect: not too greasy, not too waxy, with lovely hydration. A little goes a long way - I glide my fingertips over the bar and then massage it in. Wonderful after gardening or doing the washing up!
I LOVE this shampoo bar! I have tried few others that left my hair feeling greasy and dirty. This one leaves my hair smelling and feeling clean!
I really love the Swedish cloths and wool dryer balls that I purchased. The Swedish cloths are helping me cut down on the amout of paper towels that I use.
Toothbrush Travel Case
We have been using these for brewing kombucha. Tea goes inside for brewing and once the SCOBY is ready to be added we clean out the filter and flip it to cover the top instead of using paper filters. Fits great on our wide mouth jars!
Absolutely LOVE this mask! Been mixing it with witch hazel that I have and it feels so clean and nice on my face. A little goes a long way, so it will take a while to get through my little jar, but you bet I will be refilling it once I'm out!
It's working great so far, and smells great too without being overpowering.
I am trying out more sustainable products and I definitely love this a lot more than the store-bought foaming shaving cream than comes in a can. It is very moisturizing, plus it smells amazing! I noticed my bathroom smelled really good and realized it was the natural and refreshing scent of the shaving soap. Great price for a great product!
I recently purchased wool dryer balls and Swedish cloths. These are great products and I’m very happy with my purchases. Wish I lived closer so I can visit your beautiful shop.
Didn't know it was goat's milk. I only bought it for the aromatherapy aspect, mint and rosemary. Creamy, has a distinct smell so I don't use it daily.
This is the perfect size and length for scrubbing back and feet and it’s made of beautiful, sturdy wood. Absolutely love it!
This is my favorite place to go to get all the necessities for living a sustainable life. It is the cutest little shop and I definitely recommend going!! They have everything you could need and more all for good prices.
The lemon lavender clove scent leaves my clothes feeling and smelling fresh. 1/2 pound should last me a while, but I will definitely be buying more in the future
This dishwashing puck lasted me about 2 months, and I've stopped using dish soap from plastic bottles. Five stars!
Dish Brush With Removable Head
I’ve been using this for maybe 5 months and I’m still on my first container, so it really lasts! I wasn’t a big fan of applying it with my fingers and just bought the bamboo applicator (didn’t see that at Greenlife Trading so got it from the manufacturer and that has been great. I have the activated charcoal version.
Simple and effective. I use one for scrubbing veggies and the other for pots and pans. My stainless steel has not shined this bright in years!
I’m 4 days in and am happily TP free thanks to the UnPaper! The towels are soft, rinse out easily, and do the job. I’m very happy with my purchase and highly recommend them!
I use this when I work. It’s amazing and I actually very much enjoy eating with them!
This brush is literally perfect. It massages my scalp and easily detangles my hair without having to worry about all that yucky buildup that brushes sometimes get. The bristles are straight wood with rounded ends, so it provides a gentle massage while it's very easy to keep clean and remove excess hair. I feel like it will last forever. It's a perfect weight and size. I just love it!
Love the sustainable packaging and the lip balm is soft and moisturizing. I have the pacific mint and the Cali orange. Love them both!
The shampoo bar has lasted for several months now, the quality is great, and all without the plastic bottle.
It is super cute and works very well! It hold more water than you think so make sure to wring it out thoroughly if you store it in some sort of dish- mine ended up being half full of water from the sponge!
I purchased one of these after using the standard French string market bags. I much prefer this bag, as there's no worry of smaller produce like blueberries from sneaking out of the holes. It's excellent for farmer's market trips when you purchase produce in those fiber pint containers without lids (ex. raspberries), so you can wrangle your produce and keep it from escaping! Also washes well in the washing machine.
I ordered two of these just to try them and I just love them... great designs, too! Can’t wait to order more!
I really like this set because I have a very small bag. There's a loop you can attach to a key fob holder, too, so it doesn't get lost in a larger bag. So far the utensil has stayed inside the cork holder without falling out at all. It's well made!
This was a more intimidating swap for me, but definitely one I’m going to stick to! I just use one sheet where I would have used 1/2 cup of liquid detergent and it really gets the job done!
I was scared to try this, being so unfamiliar with menstrual cups, but the instructions were crystal clear. Walks you through the steps for use and care, and I love this cute storage bag! More than anything, I appreciate that the products I purchase at GLTC are well-vetted. Saves me valuable time having a trustworthy store to lean on!
This brush is of great quality and durability and is somehow also beautiful. That sounds weird to say about a bottle brush but it's just so much more appealing than the traditional plastic brushes. With foster babies in the house, I use bottles daily and this proudly hangs above my kitchen sink for daily use
I was skeptical to try shampoo and conditioner bars, but I’m so glad I did! The stimulator set is amazing. I can’t believe how clean and soft my hair feels after using. Added bonus, smells great too!
Been using these for a few months now. Seems to get the stink out just fine and I *love* how little space they take up, that there isn't plastic involved, etc. :D
using this for lemons and limes that keeping fresh and stored clean :D Easy and practical!
My roommates and I decided to share a bar of the balancer shampoo to see if it’s something we liked, and we love it. A new product for all three of us with three different hair types. Makes your hair feel so clean and healthy. Lathers well, which was something I missed in other natural shampoos. Our best plastic free purchase yet.
I purchased a soap dish and some liquid soap from Green Life Trading last week. Both items were delivered very promptly. The big thing though was that they were both perfect - gracious looking, smelled wonderful, environmentally sensitive. Just perfect. I will be back for more. JU
