Be the change you want to see in the world

It’s time to be more sustainable. There are simple changes we can all make within our lives that can help the planet that much more. Whether it’s using an eco-friendlier toothbrush, taking your own reusable mug to get your morning coffee or finding a local eco-friendly waste-free shop.

So, what are the simple swaps you can make to your daily life? 

  1. Brush your teeth with Bamboo!

Really! You may have seen them around, but Bamboo toothbrushes are all the rage. Made from 100% natural bamboo, the toothbrush is 100% recyclable, unlike its plastic and nylon counterparts.  

  1. Get that reusable mug

We all love a nice coffee, especially on the way to work to give us that morning caffeine hit, but did you know coffee cups are a major player in single-use waste, with an estimated 2.5 billion single-use coffee cups being discarded globally every year. Switching to reusable mugs lets you reuse the same mug over and over, reducing the amount of single-use waste, so you can find that morning coffee that little bit more satisfying knowing you’re helping the planet.

  1. These boots were made for walking

It’s time to dust off those walking boots! Could you walk to the corner shop or to work? Make those more environmentally conscious decisions and help reduce the amount of emissions released into the environment. 

  1. Find a local zero waste shop

There are many eco-friendly zero waste shops that aim to reduce the amount of food waste and plastic in your weekly shops, as well as being able to buy the exact amount of food items you need. These shops are here to help you make small changes that make a big difference!
