An Affordable List of Zero Waste Products
I’m trying to get back into a zero waste zone at the moment, given the last year made it incredibly difficult to keep up with a zero waste lifestyle. I returned to a lot of bad habits, so first things first, I needed to find some affordable zero waste items to swap out some of my go-to’s.
Here is a list of affordable zero waste products I’ve trialled and started using more regularly.
From £11.50, this clothing detergent is great. You can choose ones that are scented or stick with the signature. You can also get specific detergents for sportswear, silks and cashmere etc. The bottles are reusable and you can send them back to refill them.
From £10 and upwards you can get a pair of period pants in all types of style to fit your body type. From thongs to full briefs, heavy flow or low flow. These pants are ridiculously comfortable, don’t leak, don’t smell and are a great investment.
A quick and easy swap you can make in your online groceries order is instead of replacing your plastic toothbrush with another plastic toothbrush, buy a bamboo one instead! Colgate has come out with a bamboo charcoal brush for only £4. The bristles are soft, it’s good for the planet and good for your teeth. Win-win-win.
Swap out your old roll-on or spray-deodorant that are killing the planet with an Earth Conscious variety. Get one that’s scented to your preference or entirely unscented and be clean and eco-friendly wherever you go.
Replace an expensive non-recyclable product with an UpCircle beauty item. From coffee scrubs, face masks to cleansers and eye creams. Use their refill system to get 20% off each order; save the planet and some money.
And finally, swap out the bottles of shampoo and conditioner in your bathroom for a shampoo bar from lush. You can even combination ones if you’re after shampoo and conditioner in one. Choose from a selection of scents and purchase a tin to keep them safely tucked away in on the side. Easy to travel with, easy to use and they take forever to run down!
