What's In My Sustainable Bag

Whats in my sustainable bag

Do you want to reduce the amount of plastic that you use whilst out and about?

Here is my list of essentials which I bring with me whilst I am out of the house.

It may seem like a lot, however being prepared is a great way to reduce the amount of single use items which you need!

Try adding a few of these items into your every day bag. These won't be necessary for everyone, pick and choose what suits you and your lifestyle.

Reusable Coffee Cup


Glass Coffee Cup

Stainless Steel Water Bottle

Steel Lunchbox

Bamboo Cutlery Set

Reusable Hand sanitiser

Everyday Essentials

Refillable Hand Sanitiser

Lip Balm

Natural Sunscreen

Oxo-Biodegradable Dog Poo Bags

Charcoal Bamboo Plasters

Reusable produce bag

Food Shopping

Cotton Produce Bag - Variety Pack of 3

Cotton Produce Bag - Large

Mesh Produce Bag - Medium

Other bits I never leave the house without...

  1. A Reusable Shopping Bag - I have them everywhere so I never forget one - in my car, my handbag, by the door....

  2. Recycled Elastic Hair Ties - I recently learned that you can cut old tights horizontally which will make perfect little hair ties, genius!

  3. Snacks from home - I find one of the biggest ways in which I buy single use packaging is when I get hungry and need a snack. Best thing to do if you are like me is pre-pack snacks from home in metal tins or a reusable bag (or even fruit loose in your bag, it has natural packaging!)

  4. My phone - I always have my phone with me so I can find zero waste shops and ethical cafes nearby
