Take a look around your home right now.

How many things can you see that could definitely do with a sustainable upgrade?

I bet you’ve found quite a few, but here are 3 household products that need to be sustainable.

Toilet Roll

Why are we still wiping our bums and sneezing into things made out of lovely, green trees?!

It’s simply unsustainable to keep chopping down rainforests in order to supply ourselves with household essentials.That’s one of the main reasons why Cheeky Panda Toilet Roll exists.

Cheeky Panda use bamboo to create their super soft, natural toilet tissue. Bamboo grows much faster than your average trees, meaning it’s a much more sustainable resource to use for things like tissues, wipes and straws. Their toilet roll arrives in plastic-free packaging, too.

Not only that, but Cheeky Panda also donate to World Land Trust in order to offset their carbon emissions, meaning they support the planting of even more trees. They’ve saved over 417 football pitches worth of trees so far, but they won’t stop there!

Basically, we should keep trees in the ground and use bamboo toilet roll instead. It’s much more sustainable and is a fairly easy swap to make in order to make your home much more eco-friendly.

Shampoo

Chances are the majority of your shampoos and shower gels are housed in plastic bottles and packaging, which isn’t great for the environment or your single-use plastic credentials.

Brands like Ethique are super eco-friendly when it comes to bathroom essentials – their products are ethically sourced, contain all-natural ingredients and have very little impact on the planet.

Their packaging is biodegradable, and products are both cruelty-free and plant-based. Plus, they contain no palm oil.

So, banish single-use plastics from your shower and use a sustainable shampoo bar instead! The planet will thank you and your hair will look as luscious as usual. Maybe even more so…

Shopping Bags

Ah, a classic eco-swap.

We’ve all become very aware of how many plastic bags we were going through collectively, that’s why you now have to pay for them and are encouraged to buy a ‘bag for life’.

But can you go a step further? Brands like Kind Bag make their bags from 100% recycled plastic bottles. So not only are you reducing the amount of plastic you’re using when going shopping, but you’re also giving a new life to previous plastic that was only seen as single use.

Kind Bag have saved 1.5 million bottles so far, plus they look super stylish.

These are just a few household products that need to be sustainable – they may seem like a tiny change to make, but they make a world of difference.

Imagine if everyone made these changes? The impact on the planet would be significant, in a good way that is.

So once you’ve pinpointed some household products you think could be an easy swap, have a look around and see how you can turn your home into an eco paradise.
