Swap this for that!

REUSABLE ALTERNATIVES TO SINGLE USE ITEMS

It’s definitely time that as individuals, we do our part to be kinder to our precious planet. If we all do our part, as a team, we can reduce the harmful habits that we have become accustomed and lead by example, showing our children a better way.

Here are a few alternatives that can be used to replace single use items that you would usually throw away!

The Shopping Bag

Did you know, worldwide…2 million plastic bags are used every minute? This is such a shocking insight to our throwaway and reckless society. Carrier bags are so outdated anyway… shop in style using one of our beautiful, environmentally friendly, shopping bags. They come in all shapes and sizes, they are reusable, long lasting and hardwearing. Perfect for your weekly food shop, strolling around your local farmers market or even your secret shoe shopping addiction! (Ssh, we won’t tell.)

Eco Straws

Plastic straws are often overlooked, but these can be so damaging to the environment. Enough plastic straws are produced annually to fill over 46,000 full sized buses! Each time you use a reusable straw it means one less plastic straw ends up in landfill or in our precious oceans. They are also taste-neutral and perfect for your favourite smoothies & juices. Each set comes with a bonus cleaning brush. Small changes like this can make a huge difference!

Mobile Tickets

We’re all for swapping paper tickets for mobile tickets… If you’re on your phone as much as we suspect, it’s definitely worth swapping paper tickets for mobile ones. Concert & Event Tickets can be purchased with just one simple click, and you can scan them quickly at the venue. Its more convenient and planet friendly!

Food Wraps & Storage

Most of us don’t even notice just how much plastic the average household uses on a daily basis. Things like cling film, snack bags, wrap bags and more…. It’s so common, that it has become standard procedure, without giving it another thought. You can continue wrapping your food of course, but why not try out our range of safe and reliable food wraps? Our environmentally friendly alternatives to plastic wraps, made out of either local filtered bees wax or plant-based way (VEGAN friendly), tree resin and jojoba oil, are a must for every household. And they look great too!

Wooden Hair Brush

Wooden or bamboo hair brushes last much longer than plastic ones. Not only are they a more sustainable option for the environment, they are a better option for healthier, shinier hair. Wood & Bamboo have a neutral to negative charge, reducing static, minimizing fly-aways, tangles and frizz! Next time you’re looking for a replacement, why not opt for one of these? Healthier hair will break less and grow faster.

Keep Cups & Drink bottles

Our beautiful keep cups & bottles look stylish, last long, and come in a great range of colours and sizes. Instead of throwing your coffee cup away every single day, or buying ewater in plastic bottles, these practical and reliable alternatives become your loyal companions.

These are just a few small changes you can make here and there in your daily life. Adjusting your lifestyle options can really help save our environment.
