Do you think about living a more sustainable lifestyle and cutting plastic products out of your life? Are you wondering how to achieve this? Our best piece of advice is to replace these plastic products (once they have reached the end of their lifespan) with sustainable alternatives one step at a time. The best news is, you should be able to find plastic free alternatives quite easily… at least on our website!
These are some of our favourite plastic free alternatives that we’ve made the switch to and we’ve never look back since!
We’re super excited to talk about the Biodegradable Dental Floss in Bamboo Case because not only is it our newest product that we have added to our website, but – as we’re writing this – you won’t find another dental floss product like this!
About the floss: This natural dental floss is made from cornstarch-based resin*, coated with Candelilla wax and flavoured with Spearmint oil. It comes in a natural bamboo case featuring a twist cap to ensure safety, a metal cap dispenser and can be reused with floss refills.
So, when you’re next running low on dental floss, make the switch to Biodegradable Dental Floss in Bamboo Case!
*Resin, also known as polylactic acid (PLA), is derived from cornstarch and is compostable under specific conditions (e.g. heat, moisture, microbes). Home composting systems may not meet the conditions necessary, therefore, we recommend disposing of cornstarch resin-based products at industrial composting facilities. Ask your local council for more information as this can differ between councils. Alternatively, if your home composting system meets the conditions, this is the next best alternative as dental floss is a thin piece of string and may take less time to biodegrade than larger items. Note this product will take longer to break down in a home compost than industrial composting facilities.
Say goodbye to unnecessary waste and plastic products one item at a time in your bathroom! This Safety Razor is made from a recyclable material called brass alloy and is completely plastic free! In fact, these razors use stainless steel blades which means you can continue enjoying a close, gentle shave – as you normally would with a plastic razor – but without the plastic waste.
How should you store the razor? We recommend removing the blade after each use to avoid any harm to yourself and others. Allow to airdry and return the Safety Razor to the Razor Stand (sold separately) for storage.
Still using a plastic hair brush? Do you find that plastic hairbrushes make your hair more static? This is due to friction! Make the switch to a Bamboo Hairbrush – the bamboo in hairbrushes causes less friction and consequently, less damage to your hair. These Bamboo Hairbrushes also feature bamboo pins which have been expertly designed to glide through all hair types seamlessly. So, start brushing your hair with one of nature’s best materials!
Think cotton rounds that you can buy from the shops and come in a stack of 100, but 100% reusable. These Reusable Facial Pads are dual-sided – just like your regular cotton rounds – but come in an organic cotton wash bag. Featuring a soft velour side for sensitive skin or eye make-up removal and a terrycloth side for gentle exfoliation, there’s not much else you could ask for! Once used, give it a rinse or warm machine wash, then hang to dry.
Do you use cotton buds? Are the handles on your cotton buds plastic? Eek! Cottons buds are so small that they can end up in our waterways and oceans! Even worse, the tiny plastic fragments can be ingested by seabirds and turtles. We recommend making the plastic free switch to Bamboo Cotton Buds! The handles are made from 100% bamboo and ends are organic cotton. They’re the sustainable alternative and when you’re done with the bud, you can be sure that it won’t float around the ocean for years to come as they’re biodegradable and compostable!
