5. Bobble water bottle ($12.99)
Plastic water bottles are choking the ocean. But Bobble is the answer to our ridiculous obsession with throwaway crap. This bottle with a built-in filter is handy, cost-effective and environmentally awesome. And the caps come in pretty colors.

4. Primal Essence herbal tea extract ($8.95)
Tea bags are so old school. And each one is another addition to our local landfill. This concentrated tea is made from raw, whole-plant extracts with phytonutrients and antioxidants, and one little bottle makes 30 to 40 servings. It comes in flavors such as classic chai, ginger zing, and peppermint splash. Two pumps into a hot or cold bevvie and you're set.
