Taking steps to protect the environment is something we should all be striving for. While most households do a brilliant job when it comes to recycling and reducing waste, there are many other ways our families can create a more eco-friendly home.
We’ve previously shared our tips on living a more eco-friendly lifestyle on the blog. And today, we wanted to share some of our favourite everyday eco-friendly products for 2019. From menstrual cups and reusable pads to solid shampoo bars, keep reading for 5 sustainable products we’re loving this year!
Solid shampoo bars
Our solid shampoo bars are wrapped using recycled and recyclable packaging, so you don’t need to discard plastic bottles after use. These shampoo bars are also perfect for itchy or sensitive scalps, created using all-natural plant oils. Eco-friendly AND toxin-free products are always a winner in our eyes!
Menstrual cups have been growing in popularity over recent years, offering many benefits when it comes to sustainability and the environment. Did you know the average Australian woman uses around 12,000 pads or tampons in her lifetime, contributing approximately 120 kg to landfill? Menstrual cups are safe, easy to use, and completely reusable. So as well as protecting the environment, you can actually save money on sanitary items, too!
Reusable cloth pads
Another great way to reduce the environmental impact (and costs!) of sanitary items is through reusable cloth pads. If a menstrual cup just isn’t for you, reusable cloth pads might be a better alternative. These comfortable pads are designed to stay in place and absorb just as much as conventional pads. Simply wash the cloth pads after use, and re-use time and time again.
Vegan kitchen wraps
Single-use plastic wraps (like cling wrap) have become completely unnecessary with so many sustainable alternatives now available. Our vegan kitchen wraps are made from plant-based waxes and are 100% cruelty-free. The wraps are flexible, reusable and self-sticking, making it super simple to cover bowls, plates and leftover food.
Reusable water bottles
Around 373 million plastic drink bottles end up in landfill each year. Each discarded plastic bottle leaks harmful chemicals into the environment as it decomposes, which can take up to 1000 years! Instead of grabbing plastic water bottles out at the shops, purchase your own reusable water bottle to fill up at home or on the go.
