Easy ways to become more sustainable....
Switch it off
Less heating & more layers. Ever tired to first add a layer or 2 before switching on your heating. Try it you'll be surprised. Even switch off all standby appliances before you go sleep.
Recycle and reuse
We all buy plastic water bottles as it's a super easy option, but did you know one plastic bottle will break down into 10,000 microplastic pieces over time and is incredibly hard to clean up. Doing your weekly food shop? ditch the plastic bags at checkout and invest in a few god quality, recyclable shopping bags. You won't regret it.
Beauty - we love a bit of pampering but ever thought about where your products come from? Try swapping to reusable cotton pads, organic shampoos and soap bars. Opt for non-synthetic, natural and biodegradable ingredients when shopping for your latest beauty products.
