Reducing Waste Advice For March
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 third tip for 2021:
Hello Ocean Lover,
Today is the first day of March and spring is just around the corner! I cannot wait for the warmer weather to come in so I can get back out to the beach. What are you looking forward to this month?
Last month I challenged you to rethink your toilet roll, so many toilet roll companies use plastic packaging, and in the supermarkets it seems like it is almost unavoidable! But there are some amazing companies, such as Cheeky Panda 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!
This month, I wanted to share another awesome company that I have recently come across, Evolve Beauty. Their team believes that it is time that beauty evolves to be more natural and environmental. All of their products come in recycled packaging, with fully recyclable glass, recycled card and 75% to 100% recycled PET plastic.
Some of the best recommendation I have that are great for everyone are:
Cotton Fresh Natural Deodorant Cream - "I honestly cannot praise this enough, I have tried many well known natural deodorant brands and none of them hold up to this formula." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Organic Face Masks - "What an absolute treat. My skin feels beautiful following the use of this delightful product." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Natural Body Washes & Scrubs - "One of my favourite Evolve products, I do absolutely love to wash my hands with this liquid soap!" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
So my challenge to you this month is to take a look at your skin care routine and the products you currently use to see where you can change and find more eco friendly alternatives that are better for you and the planet. Naturally use what you currently have but keep in mind next time you need to buy something new that there are some amazing eco friendly alternatives from Evolve Beauty!

We kicked off this month with the first ever Food Waste Week, a week spent raising awareness for the amount of food waste that is created globally as well as how we can all do our part to reduce food waste! We also celebrated World Wildlife Day on the 3rd where we looked at why sea turtles are struggling against entanglement.
This month we are celebrating Dolphin Awareness Month and at the beginning of this week we shared The Heartbreaking Story of Taiji's Dolphins a cause we have been keeping up to date on for years and one we feel is important to share and raise awareness for.
Coming up this month we are going to be sharing a petition with you about how old world war two bombs are impacting marine life along with an update on the critically endangered vaquita.
We have our annual Recycling Day where we will look at whether the world has improved in its recycling habits. Plus Internation Day of the Seal is just around the corner along with a little light fun on Mermaid Day, so there is plenty to look forward to this month!
We are always on the lookout for petition to share to support ocean conservation and marine wildlife protection, if you have any you want us to share or have a cause you need the world to hear about then we would love to hear from you!
