Sustainable Lifestyle companies and there products are popping up throughout the UK now and you cannot help but want lots of products from them. Here are my pick of 5 great sites that have an abundance of products you can buy to make your lifestyle sustainable.
1.My Green Pod – My Green Pod have lots of products but also lots of information on everything sustainable with a weekly ethical news, offers, comps and a free digital mag (quarterly) which you can sign up for. My Green Pod Ltd is an independent, family-run UK business, founded by Katie Hill and Jarvis Smith. Their Hero products and services are the most effective and enjoyable alternatives to mainstream options that you can find. You can use them in your home and on your family. They’re also from companies that are working in co-creation with the planet – intentionally operating in harmony with nature and in service to the wellbeing of their customers. Every time you buy from My Green Pod’s Marketplace, they will plant a tree in the tropics (through charity partner TreeSisters) as their way of saying thank you for helping to change the path of the future.
2. Life Before Plastik – Another fabulous site with tons to choose from. They say that they want to educate as many people as we can about single-use plastic and the harm it’s doing to our planet. And, to create a mainstream online space where it’s simple and affordable to buy plastic-free alternatives for all of your needs. Life Before Plastik (LB4P) was created in 2018, as a UK based plastic free shop, working with over 50 different independent UK brands. The idea was the create a place where it’s easy to shop zero waste, where brands have been carefully selected, so they can be trusted to be sustainable Well, I don’t think you will have a problem finding anything you might like from this site. Life Before Plastik write an interesting blog (yes, even more interesting than mine :)) with articles on different subjects like ‘Seven Easy Steps to Save Energy & Money’, to an ‘Easy Vegan Pancake Recipe’, so you can end up spending quite a while on this site. Some of their new products which really caught my eye was the Lemon & Thyme Kitchen Cleaning Bar and their Bamboo Interdental Brushes (each to their own)!
3. Zero Way – They want to give back to the planet and say – We wanted to give back, so we make charitable donations from our profits to help fund environmental organisations. Together we can be more powerful in solving the world’s problems. They are a zero waste shop on a mission to unite brands that are eco-friendly, plastic free and sustainable to help make greener living more accessible to everyone. Their environmentally friendly and ethically sourced products range from household to beauty. Each one being carefully selected looking at everything from ingredients, materials, packaging to it’s end of life and they won’t cost the Earth. They sell food as well as lots of other products for the home and living. They have a great ‘Tough Love Clothes Stain Remover’ and their Eco Living Organic Makeup Remover Wipes and Wash Bag are brilliant. They can be washed over and over again.
