The 'PLASTIC-FREE JULY' movement is an opportunity to make a positive change not only to our own life, but to the lives of everyone on the planet – plant, animal and human. That’s a huge, beautiful thing to do, right? The movement is global, encouraging millions of people every year to reduce their plastic pollution. There are lots of handy tips and helpful information on the web if you’re interested in getting involved. The good thing is that anyone can do it and you can just start out small if you’re at the beginning of your plastic-free journey.
When we launched our business in March 2020, one of our clear objectives was to be plastic-free from the outset and to remain that way. All our products and suppliers were specifically chosen because they contain no single-use plastic and use recycled materials and vegetable inks where appropriate or possible. It was tough, and we had to reject some despite really loving their products, but it wasn’t something we were willing to budge on. By not selling plastic in our products in the first place, we knew that we weren’t contributing to either ours or our customers’ plastic footprint.
