As we welcome the month of July, we're not just celebrating the heart of winter here in Australia, but also a significant global initiative - Plastic Free July. This movement challenges us all to say no to single-use plastics and to make more sustainable choices. In honour of this, we're excited to share some practical tips on how to reduce waste at home and live a more sustainable life.

Compost Your Kitchen Waste

Composting is a fantastic way to reduce kitchen waste. Instead of throwing away your vegetable peels, coffee grounds, and eggshells, why not compost them? This not only reduces the amount of waste going to landfill but also provides nutrient-rich soil for your garden.

Choose Reusable Over Disposable

We're big fans of reusable items. Whether it's our durable hemp tote bags or our skincare products in recyclable packaging, we always opt for reusable over disposable. We encourage you to do the same. Carry a reusable water bottle, bring your own shopping bag, and consider using cloth napkins instead of paper ones.

Buy in Bulk

Buying in bulk can significantly reduce the amount of packaging waste you generate. Plus, it often saves you money in the long run. Remember to bring your own containers when shopping at bulk stores.

Make Your Own Cleaning Products

Many commercial cleaning products come in plastic containers and contain harmful chemicals. By making your own cleaning products, you can reduce plastic waste and create a healthier home environment.

Support Sustainable Brands

Support companies that prioritize sustainability. We're committed to producing high-quality, eco-friendly hemp products that are good for you and good for the planet.

Living a more sustainable life might seem daunting at first, but every small step counts. By making these changes, you're not only reducing waste at home but also contributing to a healthier planet. Remember, sustainability is not just a trend, it's a lifestyle.
