when you’re doing your food shop look out for fresh fruit and vegetables that aren’t pre-packaged. A lot of the time they are cheaper too!
Refillable cleaning products
Using refillable cleaning products will save you bags full of plastic bottles every year. There are lots of places in Staffordshire where you can refill yourself!
In the bathroom
Plastic toothbrushes are very hard to recycle as they are made out of hard plastic. Why not try out a bamboo alternative toothbrush? Snap off the head and reuse or compost the body of the brush when it needs replacing!
Ditch the face wipes
There are many plastic free alternatives to face wipes such as washable face cleaning cloths and sponges.
Say no to plastic bottles
Try out packaging free alternatives like shampoo and conditioner bars instead of buying single use plastic bottles and opt for bars of soap over body wash bottles!
