A thought for the environment...

“There is no such thing as ‘away', when we throw anything away it must go somewhere.”

(Annie Leonard)

A thought for the environment - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - Everyday Essentials

We can’t change the world on our own, but we can all look at how we can make a difference. Whilst some everyday essentials and products can’t be supplied without some form of outer packaging there are options that can be used to reduce, reuse, recycle towards a better environment.

Here we take a look at how we can be a little eco-friendlier when it comes to everyday essentials...

Eco Mini Lip Balm Stick Cardboard not Plastic

Recycling is preferable to landfill, and much more paper and cardboard is recycled than plastic. One everyday item we reach for to revitalise our smiles is the handy lip balm! One that certainly makes us smile is this mini eco-friendly lip balm; made from environmentally sourced cardboard, it contains no plastic and is completely compostable.

Eco and Environmentally Friendly Everyday Essentials - Bamboo ToothbrushBamboo not Plastic

Brushing our teeth has been part of our daily routine for so long that we rarely give it much thought. Did you know? An estimated 3.6 billion plastic toothbrushes are used worldwide every year. Each plastic toothbrush takes up to a thousand years to decompose, so why not go bamboo? This toothbrush consists of a biodegradable bamboo handle and BPA-free nylon bristles, making it far better for the environment.

Eco Everyday Essentials - Natural Toiletry Set in an EVA BagPET not PVC

Biodegradable Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) can be recycled so that PET can be used over and over again, with increasing numbers of PET plastic bottles made from recycled PET. All PET plastic bottles can be recycled with nearly 60% of PET plastic bottles in the household waste stream now being collected for recycling. In 2001 this figure was just 3%. These PET bottles including foam bath can be used time and time again and are ideal for those that travel, and while your audience may not be able to change how they travel from A to B, they can be a little greener in what they take! Another alternative is EVA, (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) biodegradable, it's a flexible plastic, ideal for branded cosmetics bags!
