‘I love the fact that you don’t have any plastic at your stall, well done!’ – this was a comment I heard from a happy customer on Saturday.
It’s not a coincidence. It’s a conscious decision. Kris and I don’t use plastic in our range of baby bamboo bowls and section plates. We don’t use plastic in our packaging or shipping and our boxes are made from recycled card. We don’t provide our customers with plastic bags. Our suction bases and baby spoons are made of 100% silicone. Together with our families, we proactively make daily decisions that are eco-friendly and reduce our reliability on plastic – both single and multi-use.
The purpose of this post is to give you some ideas on how you can make small changes over the next few months to do the same.
1 – Swap your shampoo and conditioner bottles for packaging free bars! The bars can seem more expensive but often last 80+ washes so well worth it. They also make thoughtful gifts for friends and families.
2 – Get your hands on some silicone reusable wrap and stop using that pesky cling film – which let’s face it, raises the heart rate every time as you get tangled up in it.
3 – Invest in some nifty reusable fruit and vegetable bags – or forgo bags altogether and stick the price tag to your shopping list.
4 – Are you a fan of a straw? Carry your own bamboo or stainless-steel straw with you and say no thank you to the free plastic ones.
5 - Reduce your use of plastic water bottles. The market has abundant of alternative environment friendly options that suit entire families.
