Here's our top tips to reduce single use plastic in your life. 

Cleaning

Refill products are great. Most of us have spray bottles in the house but instead of throwing them out and buying new products, why not find your nearest refill shop to use it again. 

My favourite products are: 

Miniml This British company refill just about every cleaning product you can think of. They smell great and work a treat in our house. 

Fill These products are available in many refill shops but also through milk and more. 

Iron and Velvet  if getting to a refill shop isn't an option then these soluble pouches are fab. They smell great and work well. 

Bicarb of Soda, Citric Acid and Borax Substitute combined with essential oils are staples to have in the house to make your own if you prefer. Buy them in boxes from Dri-Pak or Peace With The Wild

 

 

 

Personal Care

I found changing personal hygiene products the easiest and have stuck with many of my choices. This Plastic Free July, why not commit to changing to 1 plastic free product. 

Here are my top products. 

Shampoo/Conditioner bars 

Zero Waste Path 

ShabbyHeart (Lincolnshire)

Kinder Soaps (Lincolnshire)

Check carefully to make sure the product uses sustainable palm oil and also look for the bunny logo to check for animal testing too. 

 

Shampoo/Conditioner refills:  Visit Mother Nature in Bristol Arcade to buy your refills.
