Treat yourself

and the environment

Instead of keeping plastic tubs of ice cream in the fridge go to an ice creamery and treat yourself to an ice cream cone.

When the only option is plastic

Choose wisely

When you do need to replace something made of plastic choose second hand instead! If you can’t get what you need second hand look for products that minimise their plastic use or are made from 100% recycled plastic.

Dindi Naturals soap

Say no to liquid soaps

Use ‘old style’ bars instead

Choose soap and shampoo bars over liquid products in plastic bottles. Bars are just as effective and hygienic as the liquid alternatives. Go natural with an apple cider conditioning rinse available in reusable glass bottles.
