The past couple of years have been tough to say the least. Living in unprecedented times, many of us have had to revisit some of our goals. One goal you don’t have to give up, however, is living a more sustainable life.
In fact, it’s the perfect time to transition to more eco-friendly products, and reduce waste!
Being at home a lot means you can switch to solid shampoo without anyone seeing the greasy-looking changeover period. With extra time on our hands, you can experiment with making your own DIY pantry staple. Or simply take the steps to finally stop the unwanted junk mail you receive, that ends up in landfill.
Once you learn that over 3.6 billion toothbrushes are thrown away each year, it’s hard to look at that brightly-coloured piece of plastic in your bathroom in the same way! Next time you need to replace it, opt for a bamboo one. These eco-friendly products are sustainable and biodegradable.
Reusable Coffee Cup
There’s a reason reusable coffee cups are the most popular among all the eco-friendly products you can switch to. They look better and feel nicer than disposable cups; plus, at lots of coffee shops you’ll even get a discount for using them. In fact, why haven’t you got one yet?
Stainless Steel Insulated Soup Flask
Fingers crossed next year we’ll be spending more time in the office. And that means we’ll be back to our on-the-go lunch habit – which create 11 billion pieces of packaging waste in the UK alone! Bring lunch to the office with a stylish blue dolphin food flask – at 300 ml, perfect for a small soup or cold salad.
Zero Waste Kit
Must have for someone who is always on the go! Be it travelling for work, weekend adventures or just journeys in the car. We always have these items to hand when we’re out and about.
Included in the on the go hamper:
1 x Reusable Coffee Cup
1 x Travel Cutlery Set
1 x Crochet Cotton Tote Bag
If you’re switching to eco-friendly products, the stream of plastic bottles generated from your beauty routine is a good place to start. Shampoo bars are all-natural, last for ages and have completely biodegradable packaging.
Mesh Produce Bags
The war against plastic bags has been long. Luckily lots of countries now have laws to prohibit their overuse. But what about keeping your fruit and veg together on your weekly food shop? Mesh produce bags are an invaluable eco product. You can see what’s inside and use them to store things in the fridge.
