  • 1. Affordable 100 % biodegradable/compostable diapers with non chemicals. Most of “biodegradable” diapers are not 100% biodegradable really. Also biodegradable/compostable diaper bin that is affordable. Most of them are either plastic or very expensive steel. Biodegradable liners already exist.
    2. 100% Biodegradable/compostable or non-plastic recyclable top for glass containers/food storages.
    3. 100% Biodegradable/compostable or non-plastic recycable Garbage bins for garbage collection
    4. Laundry detergents with safe ingredients, refill in biodegradable containers. I see some products out there but not enough.
    5. Same concept as #4 for haircare(including black hair type), skincare, makeup. There are not enough black hair products that are safe.

  • Biodegradable packaging for fresh meat. It would have to be washable in soap and hot water.

  • Laundry Detergent, Fabric Sofener,Windex, Spay & Wash -concentrate cubes like the dishwasher packets-so all we add is water-basically everything for the kitchen or laundry. Next we can move on to the kitchen-juices, etc. we use our own containers. that would save a ton on packaging.

  • I have all reusable shopping bags, including produce bags. What I have a hard time finding are smaller muslin bags for bulk shopping. We need reusable bags for granola, nuts, dried fruit, etc.

  • I would like to use refills for soap, shampoos, cleaners etc. You would go to store to refill your items. Store could use a large carboy or container for the product. Only purchase the container once. Reduce plastic waste.

  • So many great ideas already posted – every one is a winner!
    I’d love a non-plastic hairbrush and comb set. I know consumables are the priority, but every morning I am bummed to grab ahold of that plastic brush.
    Also needed: eye drops, fragrance-free body moisturizer, deodorant, shampoo/conditioner, and hand soap.
    Thank you!!

  • A reusable, not plastic device for holding dental floss. So something like the single use plastic flossers, but one that I could thread, floss, then rethread with new floss. Also, fluoride toothpaste or powder that comes in something other than a plastic tube.

  • I would like a toothpaste (or teeth cleaning compound) that has only natural products. I make one that is coconut oil, baking soda with a bit of oil of oregano or tea tree oil in it. You could also use a peppermint oil. I use 4 ounce jars for the stuff I make and scoop it out with a small spoon. At the end of the container i just use my toothbrush to get the last of it. I tried using tins but that didn’t work as well. Play with it! 2 ounces coconut oil to 1 tablespoon of baking soda and a few drops of oil. You can also use bentonite clay but i never can find any. Making this product would save me some time.

  • I would like larger containers to store my romaine lettuce. the plastic in the stores does not keep them fresh for long. I would also like larger containers for milk since we drink a lot of milk and the bags go so fast.
