As part of Plastic Free July, I have been making more effort to find new ways to reduce waste in our home. We have been on a journey to consciously gradually reduce our waste, and especially plastic, for a while now anyway but there will always be more action we can take! So I walked around the house, and looked at our current waste and recycling, to come up with an action plan. Then I did some online shopping for zero waste essentials! Here are some of my purchases:
I purchased these Cheeky Wipes reusable cloths through Amazon* for multiple purposes. They come in a pack of 25 in five different colours (Â£17), which is handy for keeping separate cloths for own their different uses/ remembering who they belong to!
I was disappointed that they arrived in plastic wrapping! However, aside from that I am pleased with them; they are a nice size and wash well.
I needed a new toothbrush so it seemed the perfect time to opt for a more sustainable alternative than the usual plastic toothbrush! This lovelyÂ bamboo toothbrushÂ (RRP Â£2.75) was kindly sent to me directly fromÂ Save Some Green, along with one to giveaway as part of my mini eco bundle too! (See below to enter). It even comes in eco friendly packaging, very impressed!
Coconut Scrub Pads
Again, theÂ Safix scrub padÂ (RRP Â£2.70)Â was kindly received from Save Some Green and is a super environmentally friendly alternative to usual versions. It is biodegradable and compostable so zero waste.
Food Wraps and Zip Bag
BabipurÂ have also kindly offered these two fab items as a prize for oneÂ lucky winner. You can enter via instagram below:
