Natural and waste-free toothpaste:
Toothpaste may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think about how to be more eco-conscious. However, most conventional toothpastes use plastic packaging and some may contain harmful ingredients that can cause pollution. We often forget that our toothpaste ultimately ends up down the drain and can enter waterways – so it is important that it’s eco-friendly. We love the Brighton-based providers, ‘truthpaste’. They produce mineral-based toothpaste with all botanical ingredients using recyclable packaging, are totally vegan and cruelty free!
Reusable lunch boxes, water bottles and coffee cups – at all times:
Treat yourself to everything reusable! We know we are biased but just think how handy it is to have a water bottle, snack box, lunch box and coffee cup to hand wherever you are. You will reduce your waste immensely and save money on food and drink! Imagine being good to the environment and your bank account simultaneously – a dream come true!
For an amazing range of water bottles, snack boxes and everything you need for a packed lunch out and about, check out Mintie!
Treat these changes as little treats to yourself. If you feel it will be too much to do all at once, set yourself a goal of making one sustainable change every month or so. We know some sustainable alternatives can seem like an expensive change at first – so pace yourself. They will make so much change for good in the long run, and we guarantee that you will feel better for it! Enjoy your journey to being more eco-friendly and waste-free!
