It is no secret that plastic is bad for the environment. It takes hundreds of years to decompose, and it pollutes our oceans and landfills. Hence, it is so important for us to become more aware of sustainable living and adapting an eco-friendly lifestyle.
There are many areas of our lives where we can introduce sustainable practices. One of these ways is by creating less waste. A good way to reduce waste is to reduce single use plastic. We also should be using less disposables and more reusables – products with long lifespans that can be used over and over again. Enter Lexngo products!
Eco-friendly way of living
Living a more sustainable lifestyle starts with the little changes you can make in your everyday life. Lexngo products were created to encourage an eco-friendly way of living. They have developed many durable and environmentally friendly daily essentials and lifestyle products such as drinking straws, collapsible lunch boxes and water bottles, all made of food grade silicone.
Why silicone you say? Silicone is a natural element on earth which consists of sand and quartz. It is a very sustainable replacement to plastic as it is non-toxic, odourless, heat and cold resistant and is highly reusable. Recently, I was sent a few Lexngo items to try out and here’s what I thought about them.
Resealable straw – I loved this! What gave it the two thumbs up from me was how easy it was to clean it. With the normal reusable straws I have at home, I have to have a special brush to clean the insides of the straw. But this one, you can actually split it apart in seconds to clean the insides thoroughly and then it’s ready to be used again just by resealing them. Even my little one didn’t have trouble joining them back together.
Resealable bracelet straw – This is also an ingenious design. A bracelet cum straw. You can hook it or wear it as a bracelet, so you never forget to bring your straw out with you. Being sustainable and fashionable at the same time!
Foldable storage bowl with cover – This was great for keeping certain snacks and fruits on the go for my little one. The only thing with this is that it’s not entirely air tight, so some biscuits and snacks got a bit soft after a couple of hours out and about.
Collapsible flexi box – Seriously, the best thing about this box is how it barely took up any space in my handbag when I brought it out with me to takeaway food. The collapsible bit makes it so portable and compact, there’s no excuse not to keep one in your bag at all times (so you always have a container when u want to buy takeaway!) I brought it along with me to tapau (takeaway) chicken rice and everything fit perfectly inside, no leaks or spillages.
Collapsible flexi bottle – The spiral design helps shrinks the mug into half its size for less storage space, again, barely taking up much space in my bag. The spout is easy to drink from and the lock ensures no liquid spills out. You can also use it to get your takeaway coffee or tea as silicone is heat resistant, hence it will not release any toxic substances under high heat.
All the products I tried are BPA free, microwaveable, oven and dishwasher safe. They are not only eco-friendly but also functional, space saving, lightweight, super convenient and travel friendly. The designs and colours are visually appealing too. Sustainable living is definitely the way to go, so let’s start a zero waste journey with Lexngo products!
