Black Friday doesn’t have to put such a strain on the planet. By supporting sustainable and ethical businesses, consumers can change the negative reputation of Black Friday by making it a little greener!
This weekend, while the chaos of Black Friday begins, seek out the small businesses trying to have a minimal impact on the environment. And to make your search easier, I have compiled a list for you!
The team at The Cheeky Panda have saved thousands of trees from being chopped down by using bamboo for their toilet roll (which is a renewable alternative). They’ve also removed plastic packaging from their tissue range and are proud to be a B Corporation, aka a business for good!
Eco-friendly period products and sexual health products are such worthwhile investments that you won’t regret. There are tonnes of different products out there at the moment, so find what works for you. For example, Flo sells Organic Tampons, Sustainable Condoms, Bamboo Pads and Liners!
&SISTERS are on a mission to reimagine the future of female health, starting with safe, sustainable and beautifully designed period products. Their products range from Organic Pads with Wings to Period Cups in varying sizes.
Our dental care routines are pretty wasteful; in fact, Brits are using approximately 200 million toothbrushes per year! Fortunately, conscious companies like Humble Brush are creating sustainable alternatives, for example, their Bamboo Toothbrushes and their organic cotton Floss.
Reusable straws are one of the best sustainable purchases you can make. Stainless Steel Straws cost less in the long run as you’ll never have to replace them, and they’re, of course, much higher quality. This pack comes with a selection of straws, a bag, and a cleaner.
Plastic bottles are one of the worst culprits for single-use plastic waste, which means if we all replace our disposables with reusables, we would have a great chance at tackling the growing waste problem. Like the ones from Myga, metal water bottles are made to last, are easy to clean and save you lots of money in the long run.
Switching to a Laundry Egg helps eliminate up to 40 single-use plastic bottles per household each year! If you go through a big batch of laundry each week, then consider replacing your detergent and conditioner with this environmentally-friendly alternative.
Milly & Sissy zero-waste products are refillable, affordable, vegan, cruelty-free, and 99% natural. Treat your body from head to toe with products from this highly eco-conscious beauty brand. They offer products from Shower Creme to Hand Wash in beautiful bottles.
A green cleaning routine is not only better for the planet but better for our health and safety, too. Fortunately, switching to eco-friendly cleaning products is easier than ever because of brands like Ecoleaf. Their range includes products from Dishwasher Tablets to Multi-Surface Cleaning Spray.
The Little Soap Company has created nourishing bars that are great for all skin types, leaving your skin feeling moisturised and beautifully cleansed. Their soaps are free from SLS, detergents, sulphates, alcohol, parabens, sorbates, silicones and synthetic preservatives.
Bloom & Nora specialise in reusable sanitary pads that are comfy, convenient and kind to the planet. These products are perfect for all ages as they’re easy to use and cost-effective.
The Zero Waste Club has reinvented everyday essentials and made them plastic-free, cruelty-free and ethical. Their range includes kitchen cleaning materials to bamboo toothbrushes.
You can never have too much choice, so here’s another bamboo toothbrush brand! Invented by a Brisbane dentist, The Environmental Toothbrush is a simple way to make your daily routine a little greener. The handles are made from bamboo and are biodegradable and environmentally sustainable.
