Bamboo Toothbrush

A while back I mentioned I tried using a zero waste bamboo toothbrush to help reduce my plastic waste. I still don’t get how the nylon bristles are biodegradable unless it’s a special grade nylon that biodegrades down quickly, but anyway more on that later. 

I recently gave it another try a few weeks ago and quickly in a day got over I’m brushing my teeth with a twig, which initially put me off. Neither have the bristles like regular toothbrushes started making my teeth feel like they’re on edge after 3 weeks which is a big deal for me.  Continue reading “Bamboo Toothbrush”

My First and Probably My Last Time Shopping At Lush

Being vegan you’d probably think that Lush and The Body Shop are 2 places I shop at for things beauty related. They’re cruelty free, campaign for countries to ban animal testing and promote the use of natural ingredients. Those aspects I like. The actual products I don’t like so much. Both brands contain some not so great ingredients. Both I feel are overpriced for what they are. Lush, I’ve never really liked even way back in London though I like their stance on not using synthetic to no preservatives, supporting local community from who they purchase ingredients and helping environmental organisations. Both however I feel are more hype than they are about the actual products. However I was bored last month and popped into Lush.

I ignored the alarm bells of hygienie, the overpowering perfume wafting everywhere and ended up being swayed by the bright colours and boredom. I was looking for a new face exfoliator and am always on the look out for non palm oil body soaps to try. The first display I saw as I walked in was Continue reading “My First and Probably My Last Time Shopping At Lush”
