I’ve been reducing or trying to reduce my plastic waste for the past few years. Somethings are easier than others to replace with non plastic. Hair products aren’t going to to be anytime soon unless part 2 of The Hair Care Bars do a miracle on this girl’s fine wavy stubborn hair.
A friend recommended Lush hair bars. She’s also on a plastic freer journey. I should have taken my own advise from my last trip to Lush. Lush is a I like concept brand, the products just don’t do it for me. My hair however wasn’t fairing well from Freshly Cosmetics duo, it was that time of the month making me feeling a little down with I need a boost (with shopping. I always say shopping is modern day hunting. The thrill of the chase hunting down items adrenalin low key pumping) so I was okay lets try Lush hair bars to see if they’ll revitalise my hair. Something I’m working this year is to listen to my intuition more. So many times I’ve gone against that voice, not listened and I should have. That and not buying unwanted things, saving pennies.
Anyways, my hair time is fine, oily easily damaged. You’d think not colouring it, no heat treatment, eating as healthy as I can, all the hair foods and taking brewers yeast tablets my hair would be in okay condition. Nope. I blame pollution! And the wrong products. Continue reading “Beauty Finds: Hair Care Bars Part 1”
Today I’m sharing some plastic free, eco friendly, biodegradable, some sustainable aside from packaging sponges. Both for body and general household cleaning. Some even double up being a twofer! Obviously not the same exact sponge! Scrub-a-Dub-Dub! Couldn’t resist 😉
Konjac sponge with bamboo and charcoal
These are great alternative to plastic foam sponges. Made from the root of the konjac plant they’re a biodegradable, sustainable, renewable source. As for as I know production is environmental friendly. They’re also cruelty free and vegan! Continue reading “Tried And Tested Eco Friendly, Biodegradable Shower, Bath And General Cleaning Sponges”
Today I’m sharing some eco friendly laundry items I recently discovered that can help save pennies as well as helping out Mother Earth against plastic, harmful chemicals and micro fibres from ending up in the water system. Win win for everyone!
I discovered Cora Ball through a BBC article. Designed by a windsurfing teacher who wanted help stop microfibres and filaments from ending up in the oceans and seas, she developed a mircofibre catching laundry ball. Continue reading “Recycle Less Laundry Finds”
As some of you may know I’m on a recycle less, use less plastic journey. I’m also more aware of where I clothes shop from. Many of you also know I’m vegan for the past 5 years having been vegetarian for 14-13 years previously. I think that once you start on one of these journeys they all merge at some point down the same road or different lanes in the same motorway.
My usual hot weather summer style. Hiking hence rucksack and cap (okay that’s usual as I cycle everywhere). I’m no fashion blogger but a post about fashion requires a clothes photo right?
Shopping for ethical clothes is hard on a budget. I shop on the high street while keeping in mind the fibres the clothes are made from, the environmental impact, where they were made as to the wage and conditions they were made in. I’ve had to meet half way focusing on fibres in some shops. Continue reading “Ethical Wardrobe on a Budget Dilemma”
The clique zero waste produce muslin bags. That save turtles, whales and other marine animals and birds from another mistaken jelly fish plastic bag that might end up in the oceans and seas and subsequent digestive death. Or from land animals and birds the same fate.
I don’t know why I didn’t order these as the beginning of my recycle less journey. The main reason I didn’t think to. Some in a local organic shop caught my eye, Continue reading “Cotton Muslin Produce Bags”
