There has been a lot in the news lately around our use of single-use plastics and how we can reduce our usage. In our house, we are making a conscious decision to reduce single-use plastics and look into using more eco-friendly products. You may have heard about the whole paper straw fiasco and how they are useless. They are a great alternative to single-use plastic straws, and much more eco-friendly, but there are other materials I’ve discovered that can be used for straws, like bamboo or metal. So for May’s Pinterest roundup, I’ve asked a few bloggers to tell us what eco-friendly products they use in and around their home.
Reducing your plastic consumption
Starting us off is Masie from Love Masie with her super easy ways to reduce plastic consumption. Maisie’s pin is straight to the point, tells us exactly what her post is all about and is in her brand colours. She has some great ideas, on what you can start doing now to reduce your plastic usage. My favourite is ditching the plastic packaging on fruit and veg. Sarah over at Whimsical Mumblings has a few great ideas on reducing your plastic consumption. From using reusable takeaway coffee cups and travel mugs to shampoo and conditioner bars.
Eco-friendly ideas around the home
Jo over at A Rose Tinted World has this marvelous idea of reusable kitchen roll. You can check out her pin her showcasing what reusable kitchen roll looks like. Louise over at Pink Pear Bear has got the whole family making Eco Bricks. This intrigued me as I’ve not heard of an Eco Brick before. If you head over and take a look at her pin you will see why making an Eco Brick is a great idea for the unwanted plastic that still does come with some food packaging.
Asha over at Yeah Lifestyle has some great ideas for natural organic eco-friendly gifts. At some point or another, we are always looking for a gift for someone so these ideas fit in well with an eco-friendly lifestyle. Asha’s pin shows us the gifts in her gift guide which is perfect for Pinterest visually and has used natural colours to compliment.
On a more personal note, there are reusable feminine hygiene products on the market that will not only save you money in the long run but are much more eco-friendly. Fran over at Whinge Whinge Wine is a huge fan of these and you can catch her pin here, showing you what a reusable menstrual cup is like.
