You’ve probably heard of reusable wet wipes and reusable cotton makeup pads, but you may wonder whether they are worth the investment. Well, they may seem like more of an investment because of the higher upfront cost, but you will be saving hundreds of pounds in the long term.
Not only are they better value for money, the material is kinder to your skin and there are some striking patterns to choose from too!
What kind of reusable products are available?
Reusable alternatives can come in many shapes and sizes, replacing many day-to-day items. All helping you to follow a plastic-free lifestyle.
You can keep yourself hydrated with a reusable water bottle, or even prepare food with reusable sandwich bags and food wraps. Quite often, people will start off with one or two reusable products, then branch out to more alternatives as finances allow.
Plastic-free reusable coffee cups and reusable water bottles
At MettaLife, we have a selection of plastic-free water bottles, reusable coffee cups and reusable straws. They come in so many different designs and colours.
Buying your own reusable water bottles and coffee cups has never been easier with our lightweight travel friendly options.
With most coffee chains now supporting the banishment of single-use plastic, you may even receive money off your next hot beverage just for going green!
Reusable sanitary pads and panty liners
Reusable products are not limited to kitchen and cleaning. You can purchase items such as reusable nappies, as well as reusable sanitary pads and panty liners. In an average life, a woman can use up to 9,000 single-use sanitary items. Which equates to just 100 reusable alternatives.
Most sanitary products have harmful chemicals that can cause serious illness and play havoc with hormones, when these products are so close to your body you are putting yourself at risk without realising it. If you wanted to make one swap today as a woman, reusable sanitary pads would be the one item we would recommend.
Small changes like this have detrimental impacts on the environment and reversing the damage we have created.
Reusable shopping bags
It’s always useful to have an extra bag handy and we think everyone should have a couple of reusable shopping bags. They have become more popular over recent years, which is a major positive change towards going plastic-free.
By opting for reusable alternatives, you are helping to reduce the need for unfriendly materials that are harmful to the environment and its inhabitants from production to disposal.
