23 Not-So-Plastic Items To Buy From Daiso

Time to bring out your reusable shopping bags, food savers and tumblers for the Plastic-Free July Challenge.

I digged out my not-so-plastic purchases from Daiso over the years to demonstrate how shopping in everyone’s favorite $2 haunt can be just as enjoyable, without going gaga over only the plastic containers, plastic organizing tools, melamine tablewares, and microfibre towels.  I never know I can find jute strings easily here until I saw them in Daiso!

#23 – ceramic oil burner for freshening up a room.

I enjoy discovering these non-plastic products as I feel that they give me more value for money since they also tend last longer too, with most in mint condition (except the loofah, of course) when I take good care of them.  What about you? Do you have your favorite non-plastic purchases from your local 100-yen shop too?
