⚡️ NEWS FLASH ⚡️
Together we can at least make small changes that collectively have a big impact. ?
I have started swapping plastic items for more sustainable options, and one of the most important things, I just started buying less… I really didn’t need so many items, fast fashion, fast food, fast design. It didn’t last and it didn’t nourish me.
Here’s a few items that I found easy to swap: Toothbrush, hairbrush, razor, make-up remover and disposable pads, water bottle, coffee cup and cutlery for on the go, cleaning products, washing up brush and scour, cotton nappies, food wraps or glass jars instead of cling film, buying as much fruit and veg without plastic packaging. ?????
- Toothbrush: These bamboo brush options are great
- Toothpaste: Either use F4AK Activated Charcoal or Georganics English Peppermint
- Toilet paper: Paper wrapped toilet paper from Who Gives a Crap, and no more runs to he shop when you run out of toilet paper!
- Hairbrush: This one from hay design I’ve had for a long time
- Razor: Stainless steel and changeable blades is what you’re looking out for
- Make-up remover and pads: Coconut oil or any oil of choice with these hemp pads is what I use
- Water bottle: This berry red bottle by Waikiki is my favourite
- Coffee cup: I bought an Ecoffee cup at a vegan festival
- Cutlery: This is the set I got on Etsy
- Cleaning products: Make you’re own with these easy recipes
- Washing up brush: This brush is great as you can remove the head
- Washing up scour: I got this hemp dishcloth on Etsy
- Food wraps or reusing glass jars: Soya wax wraps are a great alternative, but most of the time I reuse glass jars from food I got earlier
- Produce bags and buying fruit and veg out of plastic
- Cotton nappies: Totsbots, Little Lambs
- Teething ring: I got this on Etsy
- Wipes: Cotton washable
- Buy as much as you can secondhand like baby clothes or bouncer etc
