Living without plastic seems impossible, but living with less is something we can all do.
to eliminate everyday plastic
PVC & Phthalates are the hidden hazard commonly found in many plastic applications from packaging to microbeads in personal care products. By avoiding plastics you reduce the harm they do to your body as well as other organisms in our ecosystem.
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 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.
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.
Is your house filled with plastic bristles?
