We’re leaving our cosy confines of lockdown straight into what looks to be a blissfully warm summer, and although we may have all snuck in a few too many takeaways or biccies on the sofa these past few months (oops) it’s time to embrace the season and enjoy it to its fullest.
And what better kind of summer to have than an ethical one! Have you ever thought about how many plastics and non-eco-friendly products we consume during the summer months? Bottles of water, sun lotion tubes, ice lolly wrappers, air and road pollution from our travels, aerosols, disposable BBQ’s, beach balls, the list goes on… Although we may not be able to completely avoid all of these things, let’s focus on protecting and preserving Mother Nature as best we can this year and having a more consciously cool summer.
While all the shops are now reopening and getting crammed with socially distanced shoppers, we’ve ensured that getting your eco-friendly essentials has never been easier. At Mettalife.co.uk we pride ourselves on bringing you the best brands which encompass the ethical and sustainable values that we love, and we have a range of eco-friendly, plastic-free, vegan and sustainable products to see you through the season.
Here are a few of our Mettalife must-haves:
