Learn how soap can help you combat COVID-19:
2. CLOTH FACE MASK
The CDC recommends wearing a face mask while in public prevent getting or spreading COVID-19. From the Center for Disease Control (CDC):
The coronavirus can spread between people interacting in close proximity—for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing—even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
Our plastic-free organic hemp, cotton, and linen face masks are not only safe & non-toxic for adults & children, but also comfortable to wear for extended periods of time for true all-day protection.

Hemp also naturally reduces pests, so no pesticides are needed. Amazingly it also returns 60-70% of the nutrients it takes from the soil. Not only is hemp gentle on the earth, but it also requires very little water, especially when compared to cotton, which, according to Slate uses “about 50 percent more water per season than hemp.”
Linen was one of the most common textiles, along with wool, used by the Western world for thousands of years. Linen naturally needs virtually no pesticides (its natural enemy is the fieldmouse, not insects) and little in the way of fertilizers or irrigation.
3. HAND SANITIZER
If you do not have close access to soap and water hand sanitizer is a great replacement. The alcohol in hand sanitizer can help destroy virus cells on your hands.
This hand sanitizer is made with high-quality Organic Aloe Vera gel and is bottled using 100% recyclable bottles (PET). All hand sanitizer products are cruelty-free.

4. TOILET PAPER

Run of the mill toilet paper is also becoming less sustainable according to Ethical Consumer magazine. Analysis from Ethical Consumer magazine found that major brands were using less recycled paper than in 2011. The large-scale use of unrecycled paper contributes to unnecessary deforestation and forests and trees are absolutely vital in our fight against climate change.
Basically this toilet paper can clean your tush and the environment.
