Little changes that help the environment needn’t be big or complicated, but they can make a big difference. If you’ve been thinking about the small changes that you could make to your lifestyle, then we’ve got some tips to help you out. Here’s a list of small changes that you can make.
- Try reusable menstrual products. Less waste, less energy to produce them and actually better for you. We have a great selection of pads and cups.
- Use a hanky. Everyone used to use a cotton handkerchief, but now most people tend to use tissues. You can still pick up hankies fairly easily and they are an easy reusable product to switch to.
- Use washable wipes on your baby. Not just for cleaning bottoms at change times, they are also great for sticky fingers and no nasty chemicals.
- Buy a reusable coffee cup. No need to go without your caffeine fix, but better to use a reusable cup when you can.
- Dry your washing outside. Uses far less energy than the tumble dryer and better for your clothes too. Our recycled pegs make it even more environmentally friendly.
- Try to remember your reusable bags when out and about. I keep a fold-up one in the car, so I have one on hand for unplanned shopping trips.
- Think about giving cloth nappies a go on your baby. If you want some help choosing the right ones, check out our advice form.
