17 Best Weekend Deals on Earth-Friendly Gear and More

When a product cuts down on waste in some meaningful way, whether by using plastic-free packaging or with recycled materials, we try to highlight it. Earth Day may have passed, but we're happy to say there are still some great deals running this weekend on eco-friendly gear, from biodegradable cleaning cloths to reusable bottles. 

Special offer for Gear readers: Get a 1-year subscription to WIRED for $5 ($25 off). This includes unlimited access to WIRED.com and our print magazine (if you'd like). Subscriptions help fund the work we do every day.

  • Three Bluebirds Dish Cloths Four-Pack for $28 ($7 off): Use code CLEANGREEN on these cute biodegradable cloths when you buy four or more to get $7 off (effectively netting you one for free). They don't get smelly or mildewy, and they dry quickly. You can toss them in the washing machine or the top rack of your dishwasher up to 200 times.
  • Marley's Monsters Unpaper Towels 24-pack for $43 ($11 off): Use code EARTHDAY2021 to get 20 percent off site-wide. We particularly like the super absorbent Unpaper Towels. They cling together, so you can roll them up like traditional paper towels. They're pricey, but you'll save money in the long run by cutting down on disposable paper towels. You can also opt for a smaller pack of 12 for $24, or six for $13, with the discount.
  • Stasher Bags Multipack for $38 ($13 off): These are a WIRED favorite because they easily replace wasteful ziplock bags. Just wash and reuse them to continuously store just about anything. This bundle comes with one snack bag, two sandwich bags, and one half-gallon bag.
  • Baggu Reusable Bag for $9 ($3 off): Use code EARTHDAY at checkout for 25 percent off all reusable bags. Stop using plastic bags to bring your groceries home—get a reusable bag if you don't have one already! With this Back to Earth collection from Baggu, you can carry your veggies in style. The deadstock bags are made from a mixture of leftover fabrics, but there's a ton of other prints to choose from, like characters from The Simpsons or Where's Waldo.
  • Home/Work Earth Week Collection for 20 percent off: Home/Work is one of our favorite small businesses that highlights local artists and sustainable companies. Its Earth Week collection features everything from art prints to bamboo dishes and lunch boxes, and all of it is 20 percent off.

Beauty and Clothing Deals

  • Foreo Luna Mini 2 for $83 ($36 off): If you've been using (or wanting) a facial cleansing brush, get one made of silicone. You buy one and that's all you'll need. They don't have heads that need to be replaced, and it's much cleaner than other brushes that harbor bacteria. We like the Luna Mini 2, but other Foreo gear is also discounted right now.
  • Anisa Treatment Tools for $56 ($19 off): Use code MADEBETTER to see the discount at checkout. Even on sale, these are a splurge, but we've been using (and liking) them. This bundle comes with a zinc alloy eye depuffer, an amethyst roller, and a silicone tool for applying skin-care products so you can skip the single-use cotton pads. Anisa makes makeup and skin-care brushes too, which are cruelty-free and, according to its website, sustainably made.
  • PrAna Select Styles for 25 percent off: WIRED writer Adrienne So highly recommends this brand for comfortable clothes that look nice and last nearly forever—its ethos is rooted in sustainability. She particularly loves the Halle Pants that are currently $64 ($21 off). Some men's styles are also discounted.

Reusable Water Bottle Deals

Miscellaneous Deals

Be sure to check out our favorite everyday products made of recycled and upcycled materials.

  • Couch Guitar Strap for $56 ($6 off): Couch's entire Etsy page is 10 percent off. WIRED writer Matt Jancer likes these guitar straps made of deadstock from things like couches, Army truck seat belts, and retro upholstery. The company also makes camera straps, belts, wallets, handbags, sunglass cases, and other accessories.
  • Lifeproof Wake iPhone 12 Case for $32 ($8 off): All Lifeproof cases are 20 percent off right now, but the Wake series is made of around 85 percent recycled plastic taken from the ocean.
  • Decluttr Extras: From now until April 26, you can get 15 percent more on iPad trade-ins (up to $30) with code IPADBONUS and 10 percent more on wearables and MacBooks (up to $50) with code APPLETEN. Stocking up on the newest tech isn't the most Earth-friendly thing you can do, but if you need to upgrade (like to the new iPad Pro or iMac announced this week), you may as well trade in your old gear. Decluttr refurbishes what it can and responsibly recycles the rest. Just know that the Gear team has had some poor experiences with the service.
