Charles Viancin Banana Leaf Lid – Oblong 10″ x 14″

I’ve never liked using foil for cooking since it ends up being rubbished after repeated uses. I was skeptical about using this, and have found that it’s dropped my waste significantly, with the remaining exception being when I need to cook with a lid that has slits in it to allow for steam to escape. I use reusable meal-prep containers to avoid dining out (even during the workday, which saves me quite a bit of money) and this lid is great for reheating the contents in these containers, especially since it can cover 2-3 of them when I stack them together.

  • Reusable
  • Dishwasher-safe

iBuddy Dog Car Seat Covers for Back Seat

I saw this on Tesla Joy‘s video, How To Ride With Your Dog In Tesla Model 3/S/X, and have not regretted this purchase! I use it for my dog daily, and I don’t bother to take it down unless I have passengers riding in the back.

  • Includes carrying case
  • Semi-easy to fold
  • Includes Seat-belt attachment that clips to dog’s body harness
  • Air conditioning vent

Doggie Doo Drain Dog Waste Sewer Line Attachment

I looked at a number of options for easily disposing of my dog’s excrement without contributing additional (and destructive) plastic waste to the environment, and this was the most logical choice. The in-ground systems seem to all require digging them out to clean them and somewhat frequent maintenance, while as this is simply an issue of dropping the waste in, pouring a little bit of water from a large bottle that I keep nearby, and going on with my day.

  • One-time install.
  • Zero plastic waste.
  • Zero maintenance.
