Cutting down on single use plastics and waste with A Waste Free World*

2019 feels like the year that becoming as eco-friendly as possible became trendy. It feels weird to load up on single-use plastics, whether it’s for your takeaway coffee, or the produce you pick up at the supermarket, and sites like A Waste Free World are making it super-easy to reduce your impact.

I was very kindly sent a hamper (packaged completely in recyclable packaging) filled with goodies which let me reduce my use of single-use plastics thanks to a selection of products I can use daily. Alongside classic ideas like a bamboo straw (perfect for my iced coffee habit) there were a few products which I hadn’t even thought about.

Things like the string bags are perfect for shopping for fresh produce, and I’m more than a little obsessed with the Safix Scrub Pad (£1.99) which is made from coconut fibers, and is completely compostable once I’m done!

The bamboo cutlery (£9.99) set has been tucked into my bag for lunches on the go, and I’ve been making changes to my bathroom too, with products like the Friendly Shampoo Bar (£3.50) which smells incredible, and the bamboo toothbrush (£2.99) and toothpaste tablets (£4.99) which take up less room than their wasteful counterparts. Perhaps my favourite switch has been to the bamboo cotton swabs (£3.99). Previously I ditched those blue plastic ones in favour of American compostable ones, but they’ve been difficult to find, so these are the perfect alternative!

If you’re starting to think about Christmas gifts, why not head over to A Waste Free World and create your own hamper – it’s much better than treating them to something which will just add to their pile of unused goodies!
