There’s no Planet B
What great initiatives or changes have you made to be more eco-friendly? We’d love the feedback. Check out our latest blog post to find out more.
It’s on the top of our radars to act more sustainably and with recent climate change strikes we wanted to discuss what small changes we can make in order to make a big difference.
- Reusable Cloth nappies – The UK throws away 400 tonnes (that’s around 3 billion) of single use nappies each year, which are thought to take around 500 years to degrade. Alongside this, around 7 million trees are cut down just in the U.K for the manufacturing of single use nappies. Whilst we appreciate cloth nappies aren’t for everyone, and aren’t as convenient, if we switched to a resuable option even for 1 day a week we’d be helping!
- Plastic Toys – It might feel that all toys are made out of plastic but there are some great alternatives made from wood or bamboo. Check out Grasp & Gather for beautifully created objects for your little one to discover and have fun with whilst developing their fine motor skills. Alternatively, charity shops have a whole host of second hand toys waiting to go to a new home.
- Reuse and Recycle – Even more important than recycling is reusing. We want the best for our children however there are so many like-new used products out there that parents want to sell on, or donate. Check out local Facebook groups, Ebay, Carboot sales freecycle. Just be aware that car seats are not recommended to be bought second hand.
