Give up single-use plastic: Five eco-conscious alternatives for a greener lifestyle

Takeaway Coffee

Keep cup

That daily coffee you enjoy after the school run? Make sure it’s in a keep-cup. In the UK alone, we discard around 2.5 billion coffee cups every year – and only 1 in 400 is recycled. At KeepCup, you can design your own keep-cup to suit your tastes.

Body Scrub

Sister & Co Coconut Oil

Microbeads in many exfoliants are actually tiny balls of plastic that find their way into our natural watercourses, killing wildlife and harming entire ecosystems. Avoid using coffee in your scrubs too as it blocks drains. Use natural coconut oil with brown sugar instead.

Bath Toys

Hevea Kawan Natural Rubber Duck

So many baby products are made of plastic when they could equally well be made of natural materials. For bathtime go with rubber or cork. We love the Kawan duck by Hevea, as well as their full range of rubber teethers and pacifiers, available at meandbuddy.com.

Pura

There’s no need to stick with plastic for baby bottles and toddler training cups – check out the Pura collection including adult water bottles at kidly.com, made from stainless steel. Kidly is a great destination for natural and sustainable toys too.

Molly and Moo

Ditto dinnerware – several new manufacturers make eco-friendly bamboo sets. Bamboo is a great natural fibre that can be used to make all sorts of kitchenware and tupperware for children’s snacks. We love this stylish star-print set from Molly and Moo.
