We need to make wasting our resources unacceptable in all aspects of our life. Every product we buy has an environmental footprint and could end up in landfill. At LT we take this VERY seriously.
The impact of plastic pollution on our oceans is becoming increasingly clear, having drastic impacts on marine life. This was the inspiration behind creating our Hand and Shower Wash Refills.
Recycling what we can reduces the amount of new materials we are making, and upcycling is a creative way to make old items into something more valuable. This could be reusing a jam jar as a candle holder, or using old tins as plant pots or in our case filling up the original glass jars bought for the original hand and shower washes at LT.
Buy once, refill second and recycle your refill pouch. It’s simple and not only that it will save you money too 🙂
It’s not just the products we buy. It’s estimated that a third of all food produced in the world is lost or wasted. Do your bit by eating up leftovers and use any ingredients you have spare to make interesting meals. Try to waste as little food as possible, and compost the organic waste you can’t eat.
There are other things you too could be doing to help the planet. 50 Ways to Help the Planet is a good guide to the little effortless things you could be doing in your home and in everyday life to help.
Watch what you Buy
We can all do more to be more conscious about what we buy, and where we buy it from. Buying less will save you money, reduce waste and improve your environmental footprint. Living a less consumerist lifestyle can benefit you and our planet.
Use your purchasing power and make sure your money is going towards positive change. By supporting eco-friendly and recyclable products such as our shower and hand wash refills which are less damaging to the environment, you’re encouraging companies to source and produce their products in a sustainable way.
At LT we very much care for the planet and especially our coastlines and oceans as these places in our local area of East Lothian are where we live and hang out.
