I get messages on our Instagram page from people new to the idea of eco friendly living asking why buying recyclable plastic isn't enough. The reality is that even when you buy recyclable plastic, it still ends up in landfill. There is a very limited amount of time plastic can get recycled, it loses it quality very quickly and the majority of plastic doesn't even reach recycling facilities. Paper, cardboard, aluminium and glass can be recycled over and over again without losing quality. Plastic that ends up in oceans and landfills will take hundreds and hundreds of years to break down, and our planet simply cannot cope anymore. So it's time to switch to plastic free alternatives!
There are several different variations and options available for this box, making them personal to you. We are always happy to adapt them too, if there's something in particular you wanted to try.
Included in this box: RRP over £33 so a real money saving box too!
3 x GoodToBee Beeswax wraps - the BEST reusable wax wraps on the market. We tested so many but these are by far the best. Single use products such as clingfilm and tin foil are a huge issue when it comes to our waste products. They take an enormous amount of resources and energy to produce something that will only be used once then head to landfill. We all need to dramatically reduce the amount of single use items we purchase, and these wax wraps are a great place to start. There are 3 different options available - an everyday pack featuring 1x small, 1 medium and 1 large, a cheese pack which features 3 x medium wraps (don't be misled by the name, doesnt have to just be used for cheese!) or sandwich bags, a great option for those taking lunch on the go. There's a huge amount of information on the wraps on our website already, just search for the product listing or email me any questions. They are easy to use, don't leave any taste on food and last a really long time.
2 x Ocean Saver Water Soluble Cleaning Solutions - Time to ditch chemical laden products, packaged in plastic. These water soluble solutions mean you can keep reusing the same bottle over and over again. The water pods are completely plastic free, just follow instructions and dissolve in water to use. These are such a clever but simple design that save money and plastic packaging. 2 different types currently available, although we will be extending our range very soon. Antibacterial and multipurpose are a great addition to any home cleaning kit.
1 x Loofco Cleaning Pad - Made entirely from the layers of loofah plant stitched together, these cleaning pads from Loofco are perfect for all aspects of cleaning, from the bathroom to surfaces. They appear flat and solid when they arrive, run them under water and they become soft and expand. Fully compostable when at the end of its life and a convenient cotton string loop to hang to dry in between uses.
2 x Ecovibe Compostable Sponges - The perfect washing up sponge. These are incredibly long lasting and the air pockets mean they help lather up when washing the dishes. They do not emit microplastics like regular sponges, which end up running down our sinks and eventually end up in our oceans. Made entirely from plants, they are fully biodegradable and are one of the most popular items with our customers. Everyone always comments on how long these last and how they are better than regular plastic sponges!
1 x The Sussex Handmade Soap Company Luxury Soap - with a choice of 5 different scents. Soaps are BACK in a big way. No more chemical shower gels in plastic bottles, natural soaps are the way forward. These handcrafted soaps leave skin nourished and clean and are made by a small business just down the road from us, meaning they have a very small carbon footprint.
1 x Bamboo Toothbrush - the smallest, simplest swap that can make a HUGE difference. Did you know toothbrushes and toothbrush parts are one of the most common waste products found on beaches? It is likely that every toothbrush you've ever owned is still on this planet. Shocking isnt it? Imagine how many billions of them are thrown away every year? Bamboo toothbrushes are a much more eco friendly alternative and swap everyone can easily make.
