WE USE PLANET- AND HUMAN-FRIENDLY PRODUCTS
Plastic was meant to last forever, and when it’s reused and used correctly, it’s very useful, and not as much of a baddy as the media has made it out to be. But most of it is only used once. It’s this single-use plastic we’re having such problems with. Much of it enters our oceans, and aside from the devastation this causes to marine life and seabirds, about 90% of the water we drink and the food we eat now contains micro plastics. The toxic effects are on all of us. This is why our products step firmly away from single-use plastic, instead utilising sustainably sourced alternatives.
Our bamboo farms are fully FSC-accredited, as we want to know our materials come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits to the surrounding community and the people involved in growing and harvesting it. And that gorgeous paper our bamboo toilet paper and kitchen rolls are wrapped in? Fully recyclable, baby. Just like the biodegradable cardboard boxes our products come contained in.
THERE ARE NO HARMFUL CHEMICALS ON OUR WATCH
Nope, nope and nope. We quite like our skin, thanks very much, so we prefer the products we use to be kind to it - and for the smaller members of our family to be safe from harm too. Which is why all our eco-friendly products come free from phthalates, phosphates and harmful dyes, and they’re all animal-friendly.
GENTLE INGREDIENTS WITH POWERFUL RESULTS
Green cleaning products have a bit of a rep for being style over substance - aka, they make you look good by doing your best for the planet… but they don’t actually tackle the grass stains on the kids’ trackie bottoms the same way as the hard stuff does. Well, not to boast (lol, totally boasting), but our eco-friendly swaps actually work just as effectively as the non-eco household names out there. And, just saying, but our bamboo toilet paper and kitchen roll is soft and strong (no wiping with scratchy stuff here), and lasts for ages. So you can rest assured our range does the job.

So, more time, less shopping, reduced chance of being stuck on the loo swearing at whoever didn’t change the roll…
