15 recommended Eco products for small switches in the home

 

From beauty to toys there are so many varieties of eco friendly items now – it’s amazing!

This post I’ve listed FIFTEEN beauty, nappies, cleaning and even cups and plates because making the small, easy switches is possible.

 

Make the change today.

Environmentally friendly or environment-friendly, (also referred to as eco-friendlynature-friendly, and green) are sustainability and marketing terms referring to goods and services, laws, guidelines and policies that claim reduced, minimal, or no harm upon ecosystems or the environment. Companies use these ambiguous terms to promote goods and services, sometimes with additional, more specific certifications, such as ecolabels. Their overuse can be referred to as greenwashing.

2. Eco Lunchware

Eco lunch ware is a small venture which was created out of a passion for nature and the environment. Our aim is to help reduce the impact of harmful materials polluting the earth and oceans.
We started with reusable coffee cups as we were aware of how many single use we alone were using every week and although at first it was hard we have managed to change our habits. We now aim to start adding more environmentally sound products to reduce general plastic use and single use products in general.

 

 

 

3. Hape Toys

As the world’s largest producer of wooden toys, Hape is clearly dependent on the use of natural materials. A full line of bamboo toys takes advantage of the special properties of this highly renewable material. Plastic parts are ensured durable enough to last for generations in order to encourage toys to be passed down rather than tossed out.

Production

Hape has strategically considered surface treatment, energy consumption, and packaging options to minimize environmental impact and maximize efficiency.

Byproducts and Waste

Hape has introduced key processes to ensure that the variety of by-products produced cause minimal impact to the environment. A water purification system utilizes limited or no chemicals to release the cleansed water back into circulation.

 

 

 

4. Jinmee Hydrapuff 

Hydrapuff is an ultra-thin, multi-purpose skincare sheet that is biodegradable, Recyclable packaging, cruelty free and Vegan.

Hydrapuff is super absorbent, and unlike conventional cotton pads that drink up liquids but are unable to release and redistribute product, once you add liquid to Hydrapuff, it transforms to a soft, gel-like tissue that clings perfectly to your skin, allowing for all that product to be absorbed where it’s needed, into your skin and not in the bin! 

As a result, Hydrapuff assists you into getting the most out of your skincare, with minimum wastage of your precious toners, essences and serums.

Gifted by the lovely @theforesthog a whole amazing set of eco friendly products! (Much excite!) Using cleaning products filled with nasty ingredients isn't always healthy but these products use pure cold compressed orange oil taken from the skin that gives you mother nature’s most powerful anti-bacterial properties! The fumes from commercial cleaners containing synthetic chemicals I'm sure we've all used for years don't always smell nice but essential oils do and are all natural and biodegradable and many contain powerful antiseptic, antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties that make them effective at household cleaning I've been trying them the past week or so and my favourite so far is probably the dirt buster gel and wood 'n hide (swipe to see) I have so many wooden items in my house from my table to my doors and as soon as I put the Wood 'n hide on they smell fantastic! Plus you can use it on leather which my sofas are. The dirt buster Gel I've been using for stains such as even on my blinds and it's worked a treat! 8 Tips: 1. Greasy oven? Squirt a little DIRT BUSTER GEL 2. Dry hands? Rub a little WOOD ‘N HIDE on them 3. Squeaky Dishes for hand wash and dishwasher use. 4. Forest Hog Laundry Cream NO need for softeners 5. Fruit and Veg Rinse is perfect for vegan. 6. Stop cats digging in your flowerbeds with HOME SPRAY 7. Use DIRT BUSTER for stain removal! 8.All FOREST HOG packaging is 100% recyclable – so recycle! Definitely check them out 😊 Will be mentioning more on them on my blog and YouTube!

8. WakeCup Cup

Global WAKEcup was born after old friends Buffie and Nick got together to reminisce about their time working together in the music industry.

Nick says “Having put the world to rights, we got chatting about David Attenborough’s now iconic Blue Planet II series and realised we both wanted to do something about the single-use plastic issue it raised… Along with Blue Planet and the film A Plastic Ocean, this fact gets us out of bed every single day” 

Each year 100 billion single-use coffee cups end up as landfill, that’s enough to fill The Royal Albert Hall a 1000 times over

  1. The fox diapers are adorable! And I love the bamboo travel mug. We use bamboo toothbrushes now too! I can’t wait for my youngest to be potty trained and not have to buy wipes and diapers at all!

  2. These are fantastic finds, and it’s great so many companies are small start ups like with the WakeCup brand (love the name too). Eco friendly products are increasingly in demand and it’s great discovering new things to try as I’ve not come across most of these before.
