Wild Deodorant Review

*Affiliate Links

Finding a sustainable, plastic-free, natural deodorant has probably been one of the hardest parts of making my lifestyle more eco-friendly. I have tried many brands over the last couple of years and I find that they either don’t work at all, they are messy to apply or they have dried my skin out so much that it has cracked and become extremely painful. I needed a product that was in the middle ground. One that could work on my sweating but wasn’t hard to use. I’d heard great things about Wild deodorant from other people so I thought I would give it a try and here are my thoughts…

Bambino Mio Review

When we started looking into cloth nappies, it was very overwhelming. There were many brands, different types of nappies, a lot of terms, and as somebody who had used disposables with her first child, I had a lot to learn. Thankfully some cloth nappy brands out there can make this switch really simple by being manufactured to be quite similar in style to disposable nappies and this was why I confidently took our first steps into the cloth nappy world with the all-in-one Bambino Mio. In this Bambino Mio review I will provide everything we have experienced in using them, how they fit, absorbency, care and our overall thoughts.

Baba and Boo Review

I have always said that using cloth nappies should be simple. I believe there is a nappy out there to suit everyone and that once you find it, using cloth will be a joy and this is exactly what happened when we discovered Baba and Boo 3 years ago. I was very lucky that this brand came as a recommendation by a friend and that as soon as I fitted our first one, I was hooked! Baba and Boo have seen us through every single day of our cloth nappy journey and because of their reliability, their stunning prints, their comfortable fit, they have made using cloth a breeze and so I thought I would write up a full Baba and Boo review so others could find out all of the relevant information and decide if this brand is the one for them too.

Review | Jody and Lara Sustainable Kids Swimwear

*Ad

When it comes to sourcing our clothing I am trying my best to seek out either pre-loved or sustainable items because I no longer want to contribute to the fast fashion industry. The damage it causes to our planet, the pollution, the unethical practices involved including unfair pay and poor working conditions for staff are something I think we all need to be aware of in order to be able to make informed decisions on where to spend our money and I know it isn’t always overly clear but I promise with a little bit of digging you may begin to think about shopping very differently.

Luckily, there are now plenty of companies who are both sustainable and ethical, who want to provide well-made clothing without damaging our environment and who care about their workers, their consumers and the planet. Jody and Lara are one such company, providing sustainable swimwear for kids that you will just love.

All You Need To Know About Using A Menstrual Cup

Plastic-free periods have been taking the spotlight in the last few years and having several choices now means that every period can be more comfortable, more affordable in the long run and better for your health as well as for the environment. The three options that are currently available to use are cloth sanitary pads (CSP), period pants and the menstrual cup. All three can be used, washed and reused. You can choose just one, you may want to choose two options or you can mix it up and go for all three. For example, on heavier days you may feel better wearing a period pant as you get that all round protection, at night you may like CSP and for swimming the menstrual cup may be your go to plastic-free period product. The joy of having all of these is that you can choose what will work for you.
