Coronavirus Quarantine Essentials
 Don't Panic Buy
It's likely that you have most of what you need already at home. It is irresponsible to hoard items and clear out store shelves, especially when there are people much more vulnerable (such as the elderly and immunocompromised) that may actually need these items.
 Dry Goods and Non Perishables
These items will last a long time before spoiling. Sure they won't taste as good as fresh fruits and vegetables, but making sure you have things such as beans, rice, and pasta will be essential if you end up sick and are unable to go out and stock up on more groceries.
 Frozen Foods
Freeze fruits and vegetables to keep them for longer. It is necessary to continue eating a healthy and balanced diet in order to boost your immune system (and to keep your mind happy!)
 Hand Soap
Hand sanitizer, is unnecessary when you have a good hand soap at home. Don't get upset about the hand sanitizer shortage. Just scrub your hands for 20 seconds to kill viruses and bacteria! These package-free gem soaps help eliminate unnecessary waste.
 Other Cleaning Supplies and Toiletries
It is not a bad idea to stock up on a couple of weeks worth of dish soap, laundry detergent, shampoo, toothpaste, and yes... toilet paper. That doesn't mean you need to go out and buy more if you already have enough at home to sustain yourself for two weeks. Just think... how much toilet paper do you really use in that amount of time? Shop our Sustainable Household Collection online for some of these essentials. Shop the Dot Cup: our favorite renewable and zero waste period product.
 Items for Baby and Pets
If you have others to take care of during your quarantine, make sure you have enough formula, food, diapers, pet litter, and other essential supplies. We are a big fan of Wiley Baby Body Bubble.
 Prescriptions and Other Medications
You may already have cold + flu medications on hand. Be wary of rushing to the stores and over-buying these. There is already a shortage, and many individuals who are already ill are having trouble finding the medicine they need. Make sure to always have a first aid kit at home.
 The Fun Stuff
Staying at home and social-distancing can have a profound impact on our mental health. Make sure to enjoy your time at home. Don't leave out things such as wine, chocolate, Netflix, cozy socks, books, face masks, and anything else that may help spark joy during this difficult time. Shop our Quarantine Kits we've curated.
