From our own personal shopping habits, to the brands that we carefully choose to work with, there is a very good reason why we shop the way we do. It’s not the first time we’ve said this (and it will likely not be the last), but by handing over our cash to shops, both online and in store, we are giving them the ‘nod’ of approval for the way they operate their business⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From supermarkets and Amazon. Zero waste shops and bulk stores, we are actively supporting the businesses that we by from! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As consumers, WE hold so much power and if we stop buying from these big brands that’s notoriously turn a blind eye to their impact on our planet, they will be forced to make positive changes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you don’t like or agree with what they’re doing, simply don’t shop with them! Are they still testing on animals? Don’t shop with them. Are they still using unsustainable, single-use materials, or not respecting their workers rights and looking after their staff properly? Then shop somewhere else. It really is as easy as that...💚⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

If you’re thinking of beginning your low impact lifestyle, the kitchen is a great place to start 😊 A few simple swaps to sustainable alternatives and you’ll never look back 🌍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So where do you start? Well, those washing up sponges most of us have been using are made from oil based, environment-ruining plastic 👎🏼 They will be taking up space in landfill for upwards of 52,000 years. Yes, you read that right. And to put that into perspective, the last ice age ended around 11,700 years ago.......😧😧⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And those pesky plastic dishbrushes? Same story we’re afraid. There are so many sustainable alternatives out there these days to keep your kitchen and pans clean without the damaging effects on our environment. Cotton sponges made from upcycled coffee sacks is a great example. Or a wooden dish brush with replaceable head. Or scourers made from coconut husk. All completely plastic free and will biodegrade in a fraction of the time after use 💚🍃👏🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then we have our cleaning products....often single use, plastic bottles filled with highly toxic chemicals. Instead, why not reuse a spray bottle you already have (or purchase a reusable if you don’t already own anything appropriate to use) and pop in these dissolvable, non toxic cleaning sachets! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A plastic toothbrush takes over 400 years to decompose!! That an awfully long time for something we can only use for 3 months 😣 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then take into consideration that most councils won’t collect toothpaste tubes as part of your recycling and thats most of your dental routine products ending up in landfill 😢😢⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, did you know that the foaming agent (DEA) in your common toothpaste is a known hormone disruptor? And when it interacts with other common ingredients it becomes NDEA which is a potential carcinogen linked to stomach cancers⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In my opinion there seems to be too many reasons to start making a change to natural and/or plastic free alternatives.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We know some people struggle with the swap to a natural dental routine but with so many options available now, you’re sure to find an alternative that’ suits you 👍🏼👍🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We know we’ve said it a thousand times before, but making simple, sustainable swaps is so so easy! This doesn’t mean chucking perfectly good plastic and unsustainable bits out straight away simple navies they’re bad for the environment...as the old comes to the end of its life, swap it out for something more sustainable 💚🌍🍃
.
.
We’ve been working from room to room for around 2 years now making these swaps, one by one. And the first placed we started was in the kitchen! There are now so many sustainable alternatives for your kitchen, you might actually be surprised!
.
.
Wooden washing up brush with replaceable brush heads, compostable scourers made from coconut husk, ethical and handmade scrubbers, plastic free water soluble cleaning  chemicals and large, solid dish washing soap bars. These are just a handful of brands and their products that we’ve been supporting, because just like us, their business started from an intention to help create some positive change around us 😊💚
.
.
So remember, next time something is on its way out, swap it out for a sustainable alternative. Slowly but surely we’ll be reducing the amount of waste we’re having to send to landfill each year! 🙌🏼
