Become More Eco Friendly, With These Top Five Suggestions.
We’re becoming more environmentally conscious than ever before. However, there is still a lot of work to do – in order to save the planet. We’re here to advise.
With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of five every day brands that are easily replaceable for greener options; in ways that won’t hurt your wallet.
- Beeswax Wraps
Plastic wraps, cling film, and zip lock bags are the most common tools used to store leftovers of any kind, all of which can be easily replaced with beeswax wraps. Beeswax wraps are an eco friendly solution that has proven to be more effective than every day plastics. They’ll keep your food fresh for longer, in a more natural way.

2. Refill Hand Soap(s)
Even though buying a fresh bottle of hand soap each time it finishes is definitely quicker, sometimes spending a little more time to recycle an old bottle can be fulfilling, too. Refills come in packages that are easier to recycle than a standard bottle, and they’re cheaper, too.
We’ve featured many brands that provide refill hand soaps. The most recent one is Allavare.
3. Tote Bags
Many shops have already opted in for biodegradable bags, bags for life, or paper bags. However, the best way to be green, and to save a little bit of money, is to bring your own cotton tote bag(s). Avoid the needless introduction of new materials into the environment, regardless of their composition.

4. Bamboo Accessories
Another common way to be more sustainable, is to avoid plastic containers. Instead, you can buy bamboo soap dispensers, toothbrushes, toilet brushes, and more. Not only is bamboo more sustainable, but it’s stylish too, and it’ll make for the perfect coordinated bathroom set.
Dr Zahida’s brand ZSmile provides a unique electric bamboo toothbrush.
5. Shampoo Bars
Shampoo bars are probably the most uncommon, however, more and more retailers and shoppers are cottoning on. Shampoo bars are an easy swap, because they contain the same ingredients as your favourite products, but in a plastic free package, instead.
KIND2 makes eco friendly shampoo bars.
