The idea behind the Starters Kits is to get people to swap their usual plastic goods to the eco-friendly alternatives and then stick with them forever. They are filled with easy eco swaps that will show you just how easy it is to start living an eco-friendly lifestyle. They are great if you’re looking to start making small changes in your home and they also make great gifts!
Each Starter Kit contains the following 5 items and you save almost 20% on buying the products individually.
12 Reusable Bamboo Make Up Remover Face Pads & Matching Washbag: 12x super soft make-up remover pads made from bamboo fibre & cotton. Comes with matching wash bag. These are super soft so great for sensitive skin and for use around the eye area.
These are a great alternative to disposable face wipes, these can just be thrown in the washing machine and hey presto..... ready to use again. Not only does that benefit the environment but the purse/wallet too.
To wash, rinse well after use, hand or machine wash. It is recommended that you place the face wipes in the matching bag they come with when washing in a machine so they don't get lost. These can be tumble dried, but line drying or on the window sill in the sun will work as well.
Adults Bamboo Toothbrush in White: Our adult's bamboo toothbrushes are toxin free, vegan, eco-friendly, sustainable and come with soft bristles.
Did you know that 111 million plastic toothbrushes are thrown into landfill sites every year? Not only this but the plastic also releases chemicals into the air making them even worse for the environment. If there was any reason to change to an eco friendly substitute that should do it.
These bamboo replacements last the same as a normal plastic toothbrush but the bamboo is 100% sustainable and can be thrown straight on your compost heap. Just snip the soft nylon bristles off first and they can also be recycled in your normal recycling bin.
Bamboo Cotton Ear Buds: The UK is on the verge of banning plastic cotton buds. And is it any wonder when 1.8 million get thrown away each year with 10% ending up being flushed away into our waterways causing endless problems for our marine life.
These double headed cotton buds are made out of just cotton, a natural fibre which degrades naturally, and bamboo, which is 100% sustainable and come in packs of 100.
The packaging is a plant based cellophane, which is also compostable, so make sure it goes on your compost heap when you’re finished with it!
