Making your home more sustainable can seem like a goliath task, but small changes can go a long way. Here are a few products you can use in your home that can help lower your carbon footprint.
- Bamboo Cutlery Set | £14.95
Bamboo is 100% compostable, making it a much greener option for party cutlery than its plastic counterpart. This set comes with a knife, fork, and spoon, as you would expect in a cutlery set, as well as a pair of chopsticks, a straw, and a straw cleaner. The straw cleaners’ bristles are made from coconut shell, and the set comes in an organic cotton bag.
Even once it comes to the end of its (hopefully!) long life, this set won’t be leaving a lasting impact on the planet.
- Waxed Linen Food Wraps | £22
These waxed linen food wraps make a great alternative to disposable and non-recyclable materials like cling film and tin foil. These wraps come in a set of three, in various convenient sizes, and are naturally dyed by hand with flower heads, roots and wood bark. Capable of keeping all kinds of foods fresh and ready for later, these wraps make a unique addition to your kitchenware.
- Cotton Unpaper Towels | £10
Reducing your consumption of single use items is one simple way of living your life more sustainably, and paper towels are the epitome of single use. These reusable cotton towels as just as absorbent as kitchen roll, and you don’t have to throw them away after using them once! And at such a reasonable price, they’ll quickly make up their initial cost as you’ll no longer have to buy kitchen roll every few weeks!
- Volcanic Potpourri | £39
This essential oil diffuser is both long lasting and reusable, and unlike reed diffusers, no part of it gets thrown away. It uses no electricity, and has no flames which can pollute your home, and most importantly, it looks and smells great! Lava and obsidian stones are encased in a matte black glass jar, which is topped with a red agate stone lid. The porous lava acts like a sponge, soaking up any scented oil added, and then slowly releasing the aroma into your room.
- Linen Placemats | £26
Both traditional and contemporary in style, these placemats are made of 100% linen, and are embroidered with a poppy design in each corner. All of SEP Jordan’s products are hand-embroidered, minimising the use of machinery, and every fabric they use is coloured naturally, without the use of chemicals. These mats are available in three different colours: a natural off white, a moss green, and a dark graphite.
