Imagine not having to think about or shop for what you need each month—everything just shows up with the click of a few buttons.

Convenience isn’t their only draw; the following boxes are some of the best eco-friendly subscriptions around. Whether it’s Reel’s paper towels and toilet paper made from sustainably sourced bamboo to Package Free that’s revolutionizing the zero-waste movement, you’ll be helping out the environment in so many ways while making your life much easier along the way.

Tree-Free Tissues by Katie Rodgers

Grove Collaborative prioritizes the environment, and offering sustainable products is within the brand’s DNA—just ask interior designer and TV host Jeremiah Brent, who launched an eco-friendly home goods collection with the site last year. Even when it comes to packaging the team at Grove isn’t wasteful and prices itself in using recycled materials. On top of that, the platform always suggests what you’re likely running low on, so you’ll always get a reminder before being completely out of something.
