Friendly Soap is widely available on the high street from good health food, zero waste and ethical shops. The first step is to start being mindful of the single use plastics you use, and notice how the products you buy are packaged. Once you can recognise which single use plastics you use the most, you can start trying to reduce your use of single use plastics by swapping to more sustainable products handmade soap. Here is a list of some simple (and inexpensive) swaps you can make to cut down on single use plastic:
When you are out and about, it is easy and convenient to pick up a bottle of juice without even considering the single use plastic packaging. Instead, get into the habit of taking a reusable water bottle with you when you leave the house.
As well as helping the environment, stopping or reducing the number of plastic bottles you buy will also help your bank balance in the long run. Similarly, most people enjoy picking up a coffee, but again take-away coffees also come in single use cups. Instead, consider bringing a keep-cup with you, plus many coffee shops now offer a discount if you bring your own cup!
