IDENTITY LINGERIE review

Review | Discovering The Sustainable Style of IDENTITY LINGERIE

*Ad

Sourcing sustainable clothing has become a big focus for me in the last few years but from research and experience, it isn’t always the easiest thing to achieve or get right. There are many brands out there “claiming” to be more eco-friendly or ethical but when it comes to the crunch, most seem to be simply greenwashing their consumers and so, I have found that the best way to shop sustainably is secondhand. Now, for most clothing items this is fine, however, I do draw the line at preloved underwear and nightwear, which I am sure many of you will agree with, so what can we do in this situation? Thankfully, there are more and more sustainable and ethical brands popping up and offering a wide range of beautifully crafted, timeless, fun and size-inclusive pieces in the lingerie space and I have recently been introduced to one such brand – IDENTITY LINGERIE. I was sent some of their lovely items to try out and review so let’s see what I thought…

Making the Switch to Reusable Kitchen Roll

*Affiliate Links

Reducing household waste is a passion of mine and we have dedicated the last few years to tackling areas of our home and lifestyle in order to remove single-use items and replace them with reusable alternatives. Once you start looking into it, the choices just seem to keep coming and honestly, it becomes a fun task that you can almost become obsessed with. One area where significant progress can be made is in the kitchen, where single-use products are commonly found. From plastic washing-up bottles to clingfilm, plastic freezer bags and surface wipes, not to mention the huge selection of cleaning products but the one I want to cover today is kitchen roll. Now, I am sure you are thinking “Kitchen roll?! Surely that’s not an environmental issue” but yes, yes it is. However, there is a solution – making the switch to reusable kitchen roll. Let’s find out all about it…

5 Effective Ways to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint and Live More Sustainably

We are all very much aware that climate change is already posing a significant threat, much earlier than many could have imagined. I know that sounds very heavy as an opener for a blog but we have just seen the hottest year on record and more frequent unusual weather patterns. However, there is hope, we know we have time to change and we know exactly what is required to reduce our carbon footprint. Now, I know a lot of people hate the carbon footprint term and the responsibility it puts onto the individual and I get that, there are companies and celebs contributing to climate change at a huge rate but I still believe that every little bit helps and if we can change just a handful of things in our lives that will make a difference then I am more than happy to do that… And I hope you’ve come here because you want to make a difference too. So, how can you do that and what is a carbon footprint?

However, there is another option, a sustainable and cost-effective alternative one… Reusable baby wipes. Let’s explore how making the switch to reusable from disposable can save you money on baby wipes.

Review: A Green Perspective on a Simba Refurbished Mattress

*Ad

As an eco-conscious person, when it comes to sourcing homeware items I will often turn to secondhand as my first port of call. There is always somebody out there getting rid of something they no longer need or use and their castoffs can quickly become another person’s gems. But what about those household items that need to meet hygiene standards, items such as mattresses? Well, this is one of those occasions where I would usually advise you to buy brand new. Of course, purchasing new doesn’t need to mean unsustainable, there are plenty of companies out there doing all they can to improve and excel in their sustainability measures one of which is Simba. However, you can now also buy refurbished products from Simba meaning you get that new feel with a used/returned product that is better for the environment and your wallet too. This service really caught my attention and I am going to give you my green perspective on it all in this review…
