PLAS­TIC-FREE KIDS

CON­VE­NIENCE IS KING FOR BUSY PAR­ENTS, AND RE­DUC­ING PLAS­TIC WASTE CAN BE TOUGH. HERE’S FIVE PLACES TO START:

Little Treasures - - ON THE COVER -

1

Dirty or wet clothes from Kindy? Opt for a re­us­able, wa­ter­proof bag. We love the ‘wet bag’ by Mum2­mum. mum2­mum.com

2

In­vest in a yo­ghurt maker in­stead of pur­chas­ing count­less plas­tic pots. Make your own with easiyo.com

3

Swap tup­per­ware for a metal lunch­box, made from high qual­ity stain­less steel. We love Rover lunch­boxes from plan­et­box.com

4

Beeswax wraps are made from or­ganic cot­ton and are re­us­able. A great cling wrap al­ter­na­tive. hon­ey­wrap.co.nz

5

Tooth­brushes end up in land­fill or in our oceans. Try 100 per cent biodegrad­able Grin Nat­u­ral brushes. grin­nat­u­ral.co.nz
