Switch to lightbulbs, washing powder and dishwater tablets in cardboard. Use plastic-free cleaning products, reusable containers or make your own.
On average we use 378 pieces of hygiene and cleaning packaging per person every year. Most of the products we use around the home come in single-use plastic packaging. They are made from fossil fuels, which don’t decompose naturally so they stick around for hundreds of years. By making small changes to the products we use in our homes we can significantly reduce this number.
There are plenty more swaps you can make, check out Banish for a great selection of planet friendly household products.
