Here are Live Coco, we are big believers in working together to help reduce plastic waste globally. We know that nobody can be perfect, but one less plastic item in our house is better than nothing! As we move into a 2021 it's a great time to think about goals for the new year and we know a lot of our customers will probably be thinking about how they can be more sustainable.
Here are our top tips for making your lifestyle more eco-friendly in 2021.
Our bathrooms are a great place to reduce waste, and an easy first step is removing plastic packaged products from the equation. Plastic floss is generally single use and isn’t usually recyclable, whereas our Natural Eco Floss is recyclable and natural! They help to reduce plastic and bathroom waste.
On average, we use 300 toothbrushes in our lifetime - that’s a lot of plastic! A really simple swap is to go for our Recyclable Toothbrush Heads that are totally recyclable and won’t end up in landfill. Even the bristles can be recycled, just send them back to us.
If you’ve been working on reducing your bathroom waste, you might be ready to try our Zero-Waste Toothpaste Tablets. They’re a great alternative to plastic toothpaste tubes, and are perfect for travelling! Ours come in a biodegradable pouch and contain the same amount of toothpaste as a tube does.
Outside of your bathroom you can look at a huge range of areas in your life that can be made greener.
- Energy provider - switching to renewable sources is a great place to start!
- Buy less, buy better - when we buy badly made items they are far more likely to end up being discarded and in landfill.
- Use, re-use and repair things like clothes to avoid them ending up in landfill.
- Opt for plastic-free reusables where possible! Masks, water bottles and more.
So...what are you waiting for? Make a swap today and let’s work together to reduce our impact in 2021!
