Avani is a company that makes sustainable, biodegradable and eco-friendly “plastic” bags, ponchos, to-go containers and cutlery. Avani has created a bio-based plastic bag that not only biodegrades, but is also safe to eat. It’s estimated that 1 trillion plastic bags are used every year, and having a biodegradable plastic bags would greatly impact the planet! Plastic trash can end up in our waterways and oceans, often injuring or killing wildlife.
Eco Nuts is a company that sells naturally grown soap! It’s a little confusing, so I’ll break it down. They’re called soap nuts (also known as soap berries) but they’re not nuts or berries but technically a drupe - which is a fruit with a large seed. When used with warm water, the “nuts” release a natural chemical called saponin, which can be used to wash your hair, laundry, hands and more. Eco Nuts are sustainable, biodegradable, and cruelty-free! Use code PRANA to take 10% off your order. They are also running free shipping right now, so hurry up!
