it’s a seriously pressing issue!
In 2020, the main greenhouse gas CO2 reached record levels of 417 parts per million, a level not seen for over four million years. These are unprecedented times environmentally - the United Nations has referred to the period between 2020 to 2030 as the “decade of action” and believes that what we do in the next ten years will determine the course of humanity.
Making our day-to-day lives that little bit more eco-friendly and moving towards a more sustainable lifestyle is now more important than ever before, but how can we find simple ways to make sure that we’re not causing lasting or irreversible damage to our planet?
Happily, there are now plenty of alternatives that can make a sustainable lifestyle not just accessible, but also ones that promote financial and health benefits too. Here’s just a few to get you started on your plastic and pollution free, zero waste journey.
The chances are that whatever you pick up from the laundry aisle at your local supermarket, will be packed full of all sorts of unnatural ingredients. Today’s commercial washing powders, detergents, stain removers, whitening agents, bleach, fabric conditioners and softeners all contain a harmful cocktail of unpleasant chemicals.
What many of us don’t realise is that not only can these ingredients cause rashes, allergies, irritation and respiratory issues, but they also have a negative ecological impact on the world around us.
Thankfully, they can now be easily replaced with natural, eco-friendly, sustainable alternatives.

They’re ideal for sensitive skin and just as effective as their chemical counterparts but don’t contain poisons and toxins, so they’re capable of getting the job done without having disastrous consequences for our planet.
