5 Simple Ways to Improve Sustainability at Home ➛
🌱 GO REFILLABLE! - There are amazing re-fill stores popping up everywhere, back to basics, so simple and soo much better for the environment, our local one is @thestore_bedford (lots of tips over there too!)
🌱 SWITCH TO NON TOXIC CLEANING PRODUCTS - Re fill stores have great non-toxic products, we are also huge fans of @method_uk who are also stocking refill bottles now too
🌱 TOILET ROLL SUBSCRIPTIONS - good for the planet, great for your bum!! Our fave has to be @whogivesacraptp a brand full of sustainable and social ethos, giving back at it’s best (plus the loo roll packaging acts as a really cool room installation)
🌱 SWITCH TO LED LIGHTS - they last much longer, in fact you could not change a bulb for up to 25 years…they are more energy efficient, lots of colour options, including SAD lighting to mimic natural light and help avoid health issues, they are very safe, no more burning,…. do you need anymore persuading?!
🌱 DONATE/SELL CLOTHES AND BUY SECOND HAND - Get yourself on @vinted, use amazing initiatives such as @emmausuk , think sustainably when it comes to your wardrobe too, it’s a much more satisfying shopping experience all round!
Small shifts in the way we live create a big change, supporting local, looking after the planet from our homes, all have a positive impact on our mental well-being and sense of community too...it’s all so interlinked. What will you switch this week?
