It's the end of Plastics Free July already?! 😮
We can't believe how quickly this month has flown by, but now it's now time to start thinking of ways we can make the rest of the year as sustainable as July has been!
That's why we have created a list of one sustainable swap which we can incorporate into our lives each month, so that we can spend the rest of this year forming 5 sustainable habits! 💚
Are you ready?! 🙌
Let's get started and make 2021 your most sustainable year yet!
P.S. Make sure to bookmark this blog post so you can come back to it each month! 📍
August is here already, I can't believe it!
Hopefully this August will be hot and sunny...I can smell barbaques and suntan lotion already.
Speaking of suntan lotion, did you know that regular sunscreen can be threatening to Coral Reefs and marine life?!
The chemicals which are used to protect our skin from UV light can end up in our waterways which can eventually end up in the Ocean!
These can have effects such as stopping algae from performing photosynthesis, and
damaging the DNA of Coral!
Not only are the regular formulas bad for the environment, they come packaged in plastic!
A great alternative to regular sunscreen is natural sunscreen, made of natural (not man made) ingredients which are better for the environment - and our skin!
It might take a while to get used to applying natural sunscreen, so make sure to read and follow the instructions on the packaging!
The end of the summer holidays has reached us, and its time for back to school!
But how come when September roles around, all of the Tupperware seems to have
disappeared or broken over the summer from picnics and beach days?!
Instead of buying a plastic tubberware, why try a Steel Lunchbox instead?
They are WAY more durable then your regular plastic Tupperware, and they can still go in the dishwasher!
Because they are made of metal, they stay odourless and stainless!
It definitely feels like Autumn is here now, the leaves are changing colour and falling.
It is the time of Autumnal walks and roast dinners, and the return of the hot coffee after a summer filled with iced lattes.
One of my favourite, and most impactful plastic free swaps to this day, is my reusable coffee cup.
2.5 billion coffee cups are thrown away each year in the UK alone! If you have a coffee every day on your way to work, 5 days a week, that's 260 coffee cups a year just for one person - not including mid-day caffeine fixes!
