Reducing Waste Advice For February
Each month Tammi, our clean ocean campaigner, brings you a new and interesting advice to reduce waste & help protect the ocean in your everyday life. Here is the second tip for 2021:
Hello fellow thalassophile,
One whole month into 2021, how are you doing? Keeping up with those new years goals? I have failed a few and done really well on others, changing habits can be difficult but once you make those little changes you are sure to feel better for it.
Last month I challenged you to check any sunscreen you had in your house to see if it was reef safe. Did you? It's something important to keep in mind for the summer this year, protect yourself as well as protecting the coral reefs!
My second piece of advice for 2021 is something I have recently been looking into, toilet roll! Yup, I am guilty of getting big 24 packs of toilet rolls in plastic bags that I take down to my local supermarket to be recycled. However, I wanted to eradicate that plastic from my bathroom. This is where the Cheeky Panda comes in!
Cheeky Panda are a UK based company who create fabulous Household, Baby & Beauty products out of bamboo that are kind to you, and our planet too. They are committed to being plastic free and providing an amazing eco service!
If you are looking to try out their products then I highly suggest their bulk box of 24 rolls of toilet paper, both product and packaging are 100% plastic free.
So my challenge to you this month is to check your toilet roll and see if you can find a plastic free alternative, whether you check out Cheeky Panda here or find another option. It is worth looking into if you are looking to cut down on more plastic! If you do take part in this mini challenge or have already swapped toilet paper brands then let us know where you are getting yours and why you love it!
