Review | Eco Made Easy Subscription Box from Smallkind

*Ad

Eco Made Easy is a term I live by. If you follow me on social media you will know that my posts are dedicated to showing how simple eco living can be and breaking down those myths we often hear about it being more complicated and costly. Since making many of my own eco swaps, I can honestly say that I buy less, spend less time at the shops, have just a handful of products for cleaning, and my house is nowhere near as full of “stuff” as it once was. Switching over to eco-friendly ways has completely changed my lifestyle and it can yours too. There are just so many amazing products, companies, tips and blogs out there to help you along your way and one small business has recently taken it a step further by providing a brand new service.

Smallkind is a small sustainable business that I have known for a while and they have just launched their Eco Made Easy subscription box which is specifically designed to help you on your eco journey. I was sent the very first box to review and here are my thoughts…

Ruby Cup Review

*Ad

Having a plastic-free and sustainable period is really important to me. Firstly because I am always looking for ways to reduce my plastic waste, secondly because reusable products are far better for my vaginal health and thirdly because it saves me money. I have been using cloth sanitary pads and period pants for a number of years now but it took me a little longer to switch over to a menstrual cup. This product is definitely the one that many of us are a little reluctant to try out and I think that comes down to the way the cup looks. I for one was initially put off by the size and my very first purchase proved to be wrong for me which didn’t help. I went on to find another brand and even though it was better than my first experience, I hadn’t ever felt 100% comfortable wearing it. However, having carried out a lot of research on menstrual cups I knew there had to be better cup out there for me so when Ruby Cup asked me to try out and review theirs I was keen to find out if this was going to be the winner.

The Environmental Benefits of Buying Antique Jewellery

*Collaborative Post

When we talk about living more sustainably our heads often go to reducing plastic, switching to reusables, walking more, flying less and so on but one really impactful way of doing more for the environment is opting to shop vintage over new. There are many fantastic secondhand options available to us these days from charity shops to antique stores, online shops and apps, all of which allow items to continue to be used and cherished. I am sure that many of you already know the benefits of shopping for clothing in this way but have you ever considered the environmental benefits of buying antique jewellery?

Reducing Your Waste – A Few Simple Steps

Reducing household waste is such an important factor in becoming more environmentally friendly. Whether your rubbish goes to a landfill in your own country, is shipped off to another country or is incinerated, none are good options for our planet. My trigger for changing our lifestyle was hearing that disposable nappies can take 500 years to breakdown and that even then, they are never fully gone. When we throw away, there isn’t really an away, it’s just away from our homes and when we start to really look at what the items we use are made of, it most definitely opens your eyes.
