6 Things To Purchase For An Eco-Friendly 2020

Being more eco-friendly in 2019 should be an ongoing project that develops as a permanent element within day-to-day lives. However, it can be appreciated that this kind of change will not happen overnight as much as we may want it to. Starting with the basics and items that we use on a daily basis, as well as items that are often penalised as being part of the global issue, such as plastic straws and disposable coffee cups, will somewhat help to make a dent.



1.Aluminium Straw 
An issue that alot of UK restaurants are addressing, offering paper straws as an alternative, having the straws out of sight so that they are not picked up by habit and need to be asked for, or simply no straws at all. Aluminium Straws are easy to get hold of, sites like Amazon offer a variety of reusable straws at reasonable prices, that is collapsible and easy to transport to restaurants. There are also bamboo straws as well as stainless steel that are dishwasher friendly and brilliant for around the house use.


2.Water Bottle
Plastic bottles are a huge problem concerning the environment. Single-use plastic is on the whole extremely damaging. The water bottle issue can be tackled so easily! By simply buying a reusable water bottle, you can save yourself money by not having to buy water whenever you're feeling thirsty as well as helping the environment - and it allows you to keep up with trends. Chilly's Bottles has been a particularly popular trend during 2018 alongside the "Love Island" water bottle.

3.Bamboo Coffee Cup
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, making it the No.1 renewable resource. Bamboo will also eventually biodegrade at the end of its lifespan, reducing the amount of landfill. ECoffee Cup is a company that sell a wide range of coffee cups, from the plain and simple to the pretty patterns. Re-use instead of recycling. In some UK coffee shops, those who bring their own reusable cups are entitled to discounts - win-win!

4.Bamboo Toothbrush
Something you may not even consider is how long it takes all the discarded toothbrushes to bio-degrade... at least 400 years! The average American will throw away 300 toothbrushes in their lifetime. Globally we throw away a shocking 3.6 billion (this many zeros 3,600,000,000!) plastic toothbrushes a year. My Green Vibes are a company that sell eco-friendly toothbrushes for adults and children!

5.Mooncup
Periods are unpleasant without considering the impact that the after mass causes to the environment. Alongside the issue of the expensive of sanitary products and also the chemicals that are used to make them sanitary, a mooncup is a revolutionary alternative. The OrganiCup is a company that sell two differing sizes for women that have had children and for the women who have not. 

6.Coconut Bowls
An eco-friendly addition to the kitchen. The Australian Coconut Bowls company sells eco-friendly bowls made from the shell of a coconut - self-explanatory, right? - previously, the shell of the coconut would be thrown into landfill after the extraction of its flesh and oils. This craft has reduced the number of coconut shells going to waste as well as employing craftsmen in Indonesia and Vietnam. As well as bowls they also sell reusable straws, knives forks and spoons!
