Ever Eco – Organic Cotton Net Tote Bag (Long Handle)
We all know by now that single-use plastic shopping bags are incredibly detrimental to the environment. Thus, it’s important to have a convenient and long lasting alternative. Ever Eco’s Organic Cotton Net Tote bags are a chic, lightweight, spacious and incredibly sturdy option for carrying your groceries from the supermarket, and will help you leave single-use plastic bags in the past.
Pelvi – Leakproof Underwear & Menstrual Cups
Over the course of a lifetime, a single menstruator will use somewhere between 5 and 15 thousand pads and tampons, which nearly all end up in landfill. 90% of conventional pads contain plastic, and therefore would take 300-500 years to decompose. Fortunately, Pelvi’s Leakproof Underwear & Menstrual Cups are the perfect alternative to single use period products!
These comfortable undies will keep you protected throughout the day (or night!), and menstrual cups are a game changer for active people who menstruate.
4myearth – Food Bag 25 x 20cm
4myearth reusable Food Bags are made from sustainably sourced cotton canvas, and are perfect for sustainable food storage! When packing yours or your little one’s lunch for the day, it can be all too tempting to use harmful products such as plastic wrap/bags or aluminium foil, but with these food bags it’s as simple as unzipping, filling up, and rezipping! Low hassle AND less single use plastic going into landfill. Sounds like a win to us!
Ecoriginals – Walker Nappies 20 Pack
It is estimated that almost 800 million disposable nappies end up in Australian landfills annually. To combat this, Ecoriginals Walker Nappies are made from sustainably sourced wood pulp, pure cotton and plant-based absorbent polymers. These materials are not only better for the environment, but also assist in the elimination of skin irritations. Ecoriginals nappies are 90% biodegradable and come with 100% compostable packaging, making them an obvious choice for eco-friendly living!
This World Environment Day, think about what changes you can implement into your everyday life to nourish a more sustainable and flourishing planet, because as the slogan for this year goes, there is Only One Earth!
