5 Eco-friendly products you and your family will love

February 2022

[Brand New] Coming soon to Billings, Montana is Frae Everyday Goods which helps families live more sustainably with fun and simple alternative products to household staples that either add to the landfill or include toxic chemicals. 

It’s the return of the Mom and Pop Corner Shop with a sustainable twist. 

This corner shop features eco-friendly products made with minimal packaging and offers reusable or recyclable content whenever possible. 

And, it’s focused on local first products. 

“We pay mindful attention to production methods and overall carbon footprint, so living life more sustainably is that much easier for the Billings community” 

Frae founder and owner, Tiffany Miller, is on a mission to do better for the environment and help her community do the same. 

One of the simplest ways?

Minimizing single-use plastics. 

With the right products, you can seamlessly swap out traditional products that add to the landfill for an eco-friendly version you’ll love without breaking the bank! 

Here are five of our favorite eco-friendly, sustainable swaps:

1. Ditch the Shampoo, Conditioner, and Soap Bottles 

-Use shampoo and conditioner bars instead of products packaged in plastic bottles. Yes, your hair will still love you. 

And, now, so will the earth. 

Thoughtfully packaged bar soaps, bath salts and sugar scrubs are great low waste options for your bath time routine. 

Frae Favorite: Rock Creek Soaps Sugar Scrub Cubes, Shampoo and Conditioner bars in Wild Nectar 

2. Sustainably Scrub 

Wash off the day with plant-based loofahs and scrubbers that offer the same exfoliating properties of synthetic versions but break down quickly in the landfill or compost bins. 

These are also GREAT gift ideas for special events and holidays or for routine bath lovers.

Frae Favorite: Me.Mother Earth Konjac Root Scrubbers in Green Tea or Charcoal

3. Minty Fresh Breath (and dentist-approved)

Toothpaste tabs clean, whiten, and freshen breath just like the traditional tubed version without adding plastic waste to the environment.  

You can also swap out your plastic toothbrush for a compostable bamboo version and you've taken your dental hygiene to a more eco-friendly twice-daily routine.  

All packaging is compostable for these products! 

Frae Favorite: Huppy Bamboo Toothbrush, Toothpaste Tabs in Peppermint, Charcoal Mint or Strawberry Watermelon 

4. Buh-Bye Harsh Cleaning Chemicals 

 A good dish soap block paired with a sleek bamboo soap tray looks rustic and stylish on your countertop while eliminating bulky bottles full of harsh chemicals.  

Keep your skin happy and your kitchen clean with kid-friendly products in your kitchen. 

You can also opt for dish scrubbers with natural content rather than plastic and synthetic versions. 

Frae Favorite: Fire Lake Soapery Kitchen Dish Soap Block - $18/bar, Bamboo Scrubber $10

5. Simplify the Laundry Routine 

Out with the giant jug of detergent and its messy pour spout. 

Try using low waste laundry sheets, instead.   

Reusable bottles are also a great way to reduce waste while saving money. Simply drop in a couple of our refill tabs, fill with water and you're ready to rock!  

✨ Packaging is compostable ✨

Frae Favorite: Good Hands Laundry Detergent Sheets, Refillable Bottles, and Refill Tabs
