DIRTY WHAT? CLEAN SWAPS

HOUSEHOLD CLEANING SWAPS

NOT GOOD

The fragrance chemical galaxolide present in many surface cleaners such as Pledge, Windex, and Scrubbing Bubbles has been found to be a contaminant in waterways as well as an endocrine disruptor.
Comes in single use plastic.

GOOD

Switching to a dissolvable eco-friendly alternative which is 99% natural ingredients is a much better option for a low level of toxicity, and a lovely natural non chemical smell.
Low waste reusable bottle with no plastic.

NOT GOOD

Avoid surface cleaners with Bleach, Ammonia Formaldehyde, Triclosan, 2-Butoxyethanol, Tetrachloroethylene. These ingredients can all cause skin irritation, and can lead to reduced fertility in men and increase chances of developing cancer. Comes in single use plastic.

GOOD

Switching to a concentrated dissolvable antibacterial cleaner pod like the ones on EcoVibe which only have a very moderate level of toxicity and once dissolved are non-hazardous. No single use plastic just refill an old bottle or glass spray bottle.

BEAUTY SWAPS

NOT GOOD

Although quick and convenient, disposable makeup wipes are very drying on the skin and don't properly clean deep into pores.

GOOD

However, bamboo & cotton makeup removal pads will gently remove makeup products from the skin without causing damage to sensitive areas.

NOT GOOD

Tampons are often made using a bleaching chemical and are made up of synthetic fibres which over a long time of use is not good inside the body. They also pose the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome and a lot of times come wrapped in single-use plastics.

GOOD

These period cups from &SISTERS are non-toxic, latex-free and BPA-free. You’ll save around 2,000 disposable period products over a 10 year period (the lifespan on an &SISTERS cup).

NOT GOOD

Ingredients found in some toothpaste to avoid are; SLS which can cause skin irritation, Triclosan which in some studies has been linked to antibiotic resistance and developing skin cancer, Parabens which can disrupt hormone function. 

GOOD

A simple switch to toothpaste tablets which are free from preservatives, binders and contain neither aluminium nor nanoparticles, so they are kind to your teeth and to the environment when being washed down the sink.
Plus these ones come in compostable plastic-free packaging.
