A few simple swaps to reduce single use plastics.
At this present moment in time there is a real urgency to reduce our consumption of single use plastics, and it is getting a whole lot easier to make simple swaps that will make a difference to the future of our world and all creatures that inhabit it.
A good first step in reducing the consumption of single use plastic is with everyday bathroom products like shampoo for example.
Below is a list of fantastic toiletries that are Plastic free, Cruelty free and Vegan.
Get up to 35 washes with this natural, plastic free shampoo – that’s more shampoo than a conventional 250 mL bottle! It’s water-free, making it better for the environment, easy to transport, light-weight and convenient.
Beauty Kubes are an organic, vegan friendly shampoo product that is plastic free. You don't have to take any plastic bottles into the shower with our exciting new concept. Just take one of our organic shampoo Kubes with you into the shower, crumble in the palm of your hand, add a little water to create a paste and smooth onto wet hair. A luxurious lather is created and will leave your hair silky smooth and super-shiny. There are 27 Kubes in each box - so you get the equivalent to a 250 - 300 ml bottles of conventional shampoo. The majority of customers find they don't have to use a separate conditioner afterwards.

Ben & Anna’s natural deodorant sticks have a solid consistency thanks to shea butter and soda. They go on smooth, never greasy or sticky and they leave the skin feeling great. Since we do not use any chemical stabilizers, we recommend storing the deodorant at room temperature. High temperatures tend to soften. If the product liquefies due to high outside temperatures, we recommend placing it in the refrigerator for a bit.
